Longstanding Icelandic collective múm are releasing album five Sing Along To Songs You Don’t Know 9/22 via their Euphono label. At its core the group consists of founding members Gunnar Örn Tynes and Örvar Þóreyjarson Smárason, but for touring and recording their numbers expand by five or sometimes more. You can hear a choir of ice angels on the delicate, airy “Illuminated” in this week’s ‘Gum Drop. Have a listen.
Also, we’re giving away one Native Instruments’ AUDIO 2 DJ ultra-compact 4-channel USB 2.0 audio interface, i.e. the world’s smallest USB audio interface for DJs. Check it:
Or, as Native Instruments puts it:
With a footprint no larger than a deck of cards, the bus-powered AUDIO 2 DJ literally fits in a pocket. At the same time, it can accommodate the most demanding club systems due to its studio-grade 24bit/96kHz Cirrus Logic converters and its special high-power output amplifiers capable of delivering a pristine +9.7dBu audio signal. Robust low-latency drivers for Windows and Mac OS X enable the responsiveness that DJs need for tight mixing.
The dual stereo outputs of the AUDIO 2 DJ provide the necessary connectivity to route two decks separately into an external DJ mixer, or to output independent master and cue signals when mixing in software. Two included RCA break-out cables make set-up fast and convenient, making AUDIO 2 DJ the ideal audio interface for travelling DJs who don’t want to compromise on performance and quality.
It looks like this:
To illustrate the portability, here’s traceur Stephane Vigroux free-running with one in London.
