Blue Lagoon Soundtrack 3 by Margeir


This third installment of DJ Margeir Ingólfsson’s acclaimed Blue Lagoon Soundtrack continues the tradition of capturing the relaxing and otherworldly atmosphere of the Blue Lagoon in a flawless mix of eclectic electronic gems. Known both at home and abroad as Iceland’s premier DJ, Margeir strikes a unique tone with tracks ranging from 1960s Icelandic classics through to brand new and exclusive unreleased material. Disc 1 is mixed by Margeir and Disc 2 by his alter ego outfit with GusGus’s President Bongo, Gluteus Maximus. Soulful, fluid, vital, and powered by an electronic heartbeat, this collection mimics the Blue Lagoon’s unique combination of the restorative power of nature and the manmade technology that harnesses it. 

DJ Margeir is the Golden Calf making sacrifices on the sonic altar for the lost hordes. His infamy is forged from ironclad production, blistering DJ sets and a twisted sense of humour that keeps his disciples coming back religiously. Margeir is one half of Gluteus Maximus and a founding father of Radio Bongo, from the mighty Kompakt stable. As a club DJ, Margeir has circled the globe laying down the gospel since the early ‘90s. DJ Margeir and his Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Samuel Samuelsson and featuring members of the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, takes audiences on an aural adventure they’re not likely to forget. Margeir’s Blue Lagoon baptisms are legendary, his water-borne party sets ferrying crowds to an otherworldly land of musical plenty. The first of his acclaimed Blue Lagoon Soundtracks went gold. The highly anticipated third chapter will be released in May 2014. Testify.

Gluteus Maximus is Iceland’s President Bongo and DJ Margeir. Masterminds of the Reykjavik-based events company Jón Jónsson, these dysfunctional digital artists have jockeyed their discs everywhere from Pacha to The End, armed with a combined remix list verging on the offensive - Björk, Trentemøller, Sigur Rós, Captain Comatose, Prins Póló and Kasper Bjørke to name but a few. Their original hit single “Everlasting”, featuring the magnificent vocals of Högni Egilsson, heralded the birth of their own label, Radio Bongo. The Guardian calls them an “unexpected treat,” Resident Advisor notes they have “several thousand Icelanders eating out of the palm of their hands,” and The Quietus calls them “lunatics,” albeit ones who drive the crowd “potty” and send them “off down into the spiral.” Both at home and abroad Margeir and The President are a supernatural institution. They’re an arsenal of rotating musical mass with a live freak show that shouldn’t be missed.
