dj. flugvél og geimskip (DJ Airplane and Spaceship) is the one-person orchestra of Steinunn Hardardottir that draws influences from a thousand worlds. Defined as electronic horror-music with a space twist, the music is a mix of playful beats, cool bass, catchy melodies and high-pitched vocals. Her live performances are colourful and poetic and her music deals with alien worlds, mysteries, dreams and dangers of the night. Her concerts are like a strange blend of music, horror stories, poetry and theatre. The audience is left feeling like they are in a vivid dream or have travelled to outer space. In June 2015, dj. flugvél og geimskip released her third album, Nótt á hafsbotni (Night at the Bottom of the Ocean), where the topic is the deep sea. Her last album, Glamúr í geimnum (Glamour in Space) was all about the magic of space. Nótt á hafsbotni is a heavier album than Glamúr í geimnum but the beats are dancier and the melodies are influenced by Asian music, for example from India and Syria. The album won the Icelandic Kraumur Music Awards in 2015, was nominated as the Best Pop Album at the Icelandic Music Awards 2015 and received rave reviews from both Uncut and The Arts Desk amongst others.
DJ Airplane and Spaceship’s new record, Our Atlantis, is scheduled for release in 2018.
