Toggi - Wonderful

on .

We just finished mixing and mastering Toggi's new single, entitled 'Wonderful'.

If there ever was an 'inside job' this is it. Composed by Toggi and the band, Wonderful was produced by Bjarki and Don Pedro, and mixed by Addi800 over at Syrland Studios. Radioplay will start next week, but since you have come all the way to the internet, it wouldn't be fair of us not to let you have a listen:

And while you listen, here are some production details for you:

Wonderful was recorded on May 27th 2007 at Studio 12B in Reykjavik. That's right, more than a year ago.

We had a strict policy of one song per day for the session, and recorded 2 over that weekend. The whole band played all takes of the track, no scratch takes were allowed, we tried to keep a live feel and performance.

Consequently the band took a break, Toggi spawned a beautiful son (with some help from his fiance), and was absolutely too happy and fluffy to write lyrics for the songs. We tried our hardest to make his life miserable, finally succeded, and started recording vocals and minor overdubs last month at our own studio, Wömbin™. From there straight to Addi 800 for mixing. The other song, Silly Old Song will be released in approximately 2 months time.

Morten Harket - Darkspace

on .

Don Pedro and Addi 800 have been working on some songs for the forthcoming release of Morten Harket's new solo album 'Letter from Egypt'.

The album, produced by Kjetil Bjerkestrand and Morten himself, had been ready for a while, but some songs were sent around to various producers too see if improvements could still be made.

Addi 800 and Don Pedro had a shot at 2 of the tracks together, and as a result of that work, Morten and agent Sigurjon Einarsson came to Iceland to finalize a couple of songs with us.

The work includes some production work and final post-production, and was described by Morten himself as "giving the songs a haircut".

The album itself will be released in Norway on May 19th, and other international releases are to follow.

A new single, 'Darkspace' is being released this week. The single is mixed by Addi 800, and mastered by Syrland Studio's veteran mastering engineer Bjarni Bragi Kjartansson. Some electric guitars were tracked by Don Pedro at the Wömb™ studio and added to existing recordings.

We will bring you more news of our work with Morten as it progresses, but it has to be said that the process and the cooperation has been very satisfying, both professionally and personally, so we are all very exited about the project's future successes.

Everybody Present

on .

Arnar is putting finishing touches to the music to a film entitled “Everybody Present”, a forty minute documentary on a group of ladies who have been meeting up and dancing together for half a century.

The film is produced by Profilm, and is directed by renowned photographer Maria Gudmundsdottir from a script written by best-selling author Vigdis Grimsdottir. It is scheduled to premier shortly. We will have clips after the release.

What Up?

on .

Arnar just finished a track for Sean Ellis's upcoming film, Broken. As the film is not released yet, we will be slightly killed if we preview it here now, so more on that later.

Eberg teamed up with Bang Gang's Bardi, and together they scored Drama series The Press. The first episode has just aired, and we are awaiting material to show you here.

Together they also wrote and produced the theme song for Unholy Night, an exiting short film that premiered just before christmas, and rightly so, as it shows us what happens when santa goes seriously bad.

Poster says it all, really...
