Our good friend DJ Platurn has recently released a mix of rare Icelandic psych, funk, soul, and disco that has lovingly been compiled, mixed, and presented in a masterful way. The Icelandic DJ and his cousin spent years collecting and combing through music from the motherland and the resulting piece is the first of it's kind. Something you should defiantly give a listen to.

When Victrola introduced the Revolution Go turntable to me and asked if we would be interested in trying one out, I was game, but these days I spend more time at my desk than hunting for records in dusty basements.
