“I always wanted to tie all these records from the motherland into some sort of release, ever since I started messing around DJing in my teens,” says DJ Platurn, who originally came to the U.S. from Iceland. “They traveled over 4,000 miles and all over the West Coast of the U.S. until pops finally let me have ’em. He played some of ’em on his radio shows and the clubs and events he used to DJ at almost fifty years ago.”

Watch the premiere of the mini-documentary Breaking the Ice by Peter Magnusson (pka Kicker Dixon) above, and you can buy the mixtape here. It releases on March 23 via Needle to the Groove and will be sold as a 2xCD package that includes rare photos and liner notes from Wax Poetics scribe David Ma.

“My fascination eventually got serious enough that I started to dig much deeper,” Platurn continues. “Slim pickings and deep obscurity/rarity made finding the kind of stuff I like even more difficult. Finally I had enough. Magnus, excavating with my cousin Sveimhugi back home, and my own research culminated into a lifetime worth of vinyl tinkering.

“Iceland isn’t known for the funk, but anyone who’s a fan of the funk knows it can emit from the unlikeliest of places. Groove-based music is a feeling that comes [from] within, as a fan and a composer. No one’s ever put it that well into words. I’m not gonna attempt to either. It’s just that thing that makes finding soulful music on an island deep in the North Atlantic an actual possibility.”

Double disc all vinyl DJ mix packaged in 16 page high quality digibook with extensive liner notes, rare photos, & free download code. Limited to 1000 copies worldwide.

Breaking the Ice is an extended mix of rare—mostly never before heard—Icelandic tracks that are heavily underscored with funk, soul, disco, and in-the-pocket rhythms, all of which are expertly mixed by renowned DJ and turntablist, DJ Platurn. The music presented has been compiled through a lifetime of collecting, while others have been passed down through Platurn’s familial, musical roots. The packaging includes rare photos, via Platurn's father Magnus Thordarson, and other ephemera from Iceland's small yet vibrant music scene during the late 1960s thru the early 1980s. The release also features extensive liner notes by longtime music journalist David Ma, couching the music’s history as well and the region’s bygone era in which it arose.

"Whoa! This is funky…It’s like a rare music 101." - Prince Paul

"It's very rare when someone comes along and displays a genre of music so unique and inspiring that it makes you re-think how to collect music. DJ Platurn effortlessly mixes Icelandic Funk cold enough to bring our polar caps back!" - DJ Nu-Mark

“I have no idea what any of the words mean listening to this thing, but Platurn loaded it with extremely rare & groovy Icelandic music; and that I totally understand!” - DJ Z-Trip

"BTI is a cache of gorgeous, mostly unheard songs that ring both familiar and exotic, faraway yet American, grounded and brave. This expertly tailored mix shows Platurn's immense technicality, as well a tasteful awareness to let the music breath." - David Ma (The Guardian, Wax Poetics, Rollingstone.com)

image looks like a good series starting possibly.

Dont sleep, Fat Beats probably going to sell out with this comp from this dj. 1000 copies won't last the year if they packaged everything right. Which I'm a*suming he did.
