When we released Thor's “Yellow Sky Over Reykjavík” on the first part of our “Icelandic Lost Tracks” series in 2010, we were proud beyond words to discover such an outstanding and still unreleased track from one of our heroes from the 90ies.

We called the original a dancefloor-resetter, an expression which was also used more than onceby reviewers and press-people when writing about the release.

When we decided to do the Iconography series with its wonderful artwork, split in four parts and illustrated by Julia Humpfer, we knew we had to use this bomb for it, but also that we have to choose the remixers wisely.

After making the right choice with Tuff City Kids and Lake People as remixers for Chymera's classic “Caprica Burning”, the first part of our Iconography Series, we apparently also had the right instinct with Prins Thomas and Baikal for Thor's “Yellow Sky Over Reykjavík”. Both interpreted the tune in a very personal way, but with full respect for the original parts. Two directions, two anthems. Nuff said!
