Icelandic composer and Erased Tapes staple Ólafur Arnalds is set to curate the latest instalment of the Late Night Tales series.

Standing at the intersection of classical, techno and ambient worlds, Arnalds presents an eclectic mix reaching across all spectrums, including tracks from Jai Paul, Julianna Barwick, Koreless, Odesza, Four Tet and James Blake.

Additionally, Arnalds includes a number of exclusive tracks, like his cover of Destiny Child’s “Say My Name”, a new song from his duo with Janus Rasmussen as Kiasmos, and a new solo piece called “Kinesthesia I”, which is streaming below now.


“When I was asked to do the next installation of the Late Night Tales series I thought “This will be fun and easy, only a couple of days work. No problem!”. Six months later, I was still pulling my hair out in some kind of quest to make the perfect mix. As someone who has never really done mixes before, I learned a lot of things along the way and the whole experience was very inspiring. I decided to approach the mix in a similar way as I would one of my scores. This is the soundtrack of my life. I included songs from many of my friends and collaborators and tried to deliver a mix that represents who I am as an artist and where my influences are coming from – both personally and musically.”

Late Night Tales – Ólafur Arnalds is scheduled for June 24 release.
