Review: We have something very special to check out here, as the innovative sounds of Felix Leifur see him land on Lagaffe Tales for 'BROT 03', a wonderful journey into sound and audio processing. We kick off with the stunning score-work of 'Brot, Pt. 9', combining stunning key-based harmonies for a heavenly audible experience. 'Pt. 10' follows with more junglist vibes, before 'Pt. 11' arrives with a more heavy hitting breakbeat backbone. Next up you guessed it, 'Pt. 12' deploys spacey pads and scattered drum breaks for more groovy results, before rounding up on the more high pressure drum switches and haunting tones of 'Pt. 13'. We would also thoroughly recommend taking this one in on long play!

Sune - "I'll Be Right Back" - (5:25) 121 BPM
Review: The second instalment in the Tale of Tales series brings with it four more reasons to be cheerful. Dirt Crew regular Felix Leifur steps up first with "Eitt", a lovably loose, dusty and occasionally wonky trip into blazed jazz-house territory. The jazzy mood continues on Toy Tronics duo COEO's rolling deep houser "Clouds", before Moony Me peppers a bustling, organic-sounding groove with sparkling synth refrains and drowsy chords on the thrillingly hazy "Soul Mirage". Sune opts for a far more bustling, chunkier beat pattern on skewed disco-house caper "I'll Be Right Back", which features some superbly cut-up and rearranged vibraphone solos alongside punchy horn samples and a brilliant post-breakdown drop.

Played by: Chrissy
Review: Olafur Breidfjord aka Ilo put out a well-received artist album back in 2001, before promptly vanishing for 15 years. The Icelandic artist has re-surfaced lately, and it is fitting that one of his comeback EPs is on Rekjavik label Lagaffe Tales. The title track is an unusual combination, with Ilo mixing up spacey vocal samples, found sounds and rolling but mid-paced drums. It's a catchy, infectious affair, and it's hard not think of turn of the millennium artists like Zero 7. "Miracles" is more dance floor-focused and sees Breidfjord combine a powerful bass with gorgeous filters and more effortless vocal samples. It makes for a beautiful, musical release.

Sakuragawa - (6:47) 137 BPM
Review: Jonbjorn Finnbogason returns to his own imprint with four slices of offbeat dance music. EP opener "Shamisen" is a steely electro roller shot through with Sabres of Paradise-style dub effects, while on "Anthophila Anna", the Lagaffe Tales boss delivers a rickety techno rhythm that's populated by creaky effects and a stop-start groove. "Tinni" is a somewhat more conventional affair, and centres on a low-slung electro rhythm and ominous sub-bass, but it's the exception to the rule here and on "Sakuragawa", this idiosyncratic artist drops a heads-down techno track that's full of unusual hooks and a series of stops and starts.

Review: Icelandic imprint Lagaffe Tales are back after another awesome instalment, following up a great one by label chief Jonbjorn. Their latest is the debut of one Kerr Wilson. A good friend from back in Reykjavik, he's been based out of Berlin for the past few years and is slowly building a name for himself with his ecstatic DJ performances around the city. On the 'Kids' EP he brings forth three dynamic cuts, starting out with the sensual and dusty deep house of the title track, a poignant tribute to his new home on the mesmerising electro beat of "Berlin Took My Breath Away" and closing it out with the evocative stepper "The Right Left".

Review: Lagaffe Tales is a record label founded in Reykjavik 2012 by Jonbjorn Finnbogason & Viktor Birgisson. Their second release features four tracks from their homeboy Moff & Tarkin: it's actually just one bloke named: Magnus Felix Tryggvason. Hence the alias. and he's not even based out in Iceland anymore, he lives in Vienna now apparently! Anyway, Big Mango Bangers gives us a good taste of the fresh style that the guy has to offer. The A side has two sturdy soul edits, 'Naked' and 'I Got This' and as the label themselves best put it 'work some superb sample action.' 'Mutual Distraction' gets some neon lit 80s house vibes happening in the vein of Lauer or Tuff City Kids while the bleepy and entrancing 'Skutlais a great DJ tool in the vein of fellow Scando Todd Terje.

Review: Having been with the label since its launch in 2016, Moff & Tarkin (real name Magnus Felix Tryggvason) is Lagaffe Tales longest serving and most reliable artist. It seems fitting then that the imprint is releasing his debut album, "Man of the Match". It's an assured and largely hugely enjoyable affair in which Tryggvason variously reaches for stomping tribal house beats, razor-sharp acid lines, two-step garage tropes, rave-ready riffs, undulating synthesizer lead lines, psychedelic sounds, hip-hop samples, drowsy deep house chords and lots of dense layered percussion. It's largely a formidably floor-friendly affair in which the Lagaffe Tales regular puts forward his particular brand of giddy retro-futurism. It's a better album for that, too, as it remains deliciously difficult to pin down throughout.
