Watch a mini-documentary on the hunt for Iceland’s super-rare funk records
February 23, 2018
“People know Björk but when you dive into the past, there was some seriously funky stuff going on.”
A few weeks ago, DJ Platurn dropped an incredible mix into our laps at VF, traversing the uncharted tundra-like territories of Iceland’s forgotten rare groove scene.
These were records so rare they don’t appear on YouTube, never mind Discogs, united by a universal funk that has appealed to the Icelandic-born DJ, turntablist and collector since his father first pressed them into his hands.
Following that mix and feature, DJ Platurn has released a lovely mini-documentary going deep on that search.
