Iceland has given rise to some interesting music over the past decade – Sigur Ros, Mom, and Bjork, amongst others. Next in line is Bang Gang, an unfortunately named group riding on the rather talented coat tails of producer and songwriter Bardi Johannsson. Their record label have a contest going at the moment whereby you can remix the Bang Gang track It’s Alright and possibly win a trip to Iceland. Heck, they’ll probably throw in a free set of steak knives as well. Though that’s not guaranteed. ‘To create your remix, download isolated multi-tracks of It’s Alright, then use them and whatever else you have up your sleeve. Just no illegal samples’. The entries will be judged by Bardi Johannsson himself. [see also Operator Please]
