Welcome back to Selections, a series of exclusive artist-curated Spotify playlists from those in the know.

Icelandic duo Kiasmos, made up of BAFTA-winning composer Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen, step up for a list of blissful, atmospheric choices. The two crossed paths when Arnalds worked as a sound engineer on Rasmussen’s projects and they later befriended each other over their love for minimal, orchestral and experimental sounds. The duo later decided to explore the gap between Arnald’s piano-based compositions and Rasmussen’s synth-heavy pop, as Kiasmos.

Below, the duo curate a list of tracks that provide us with some insight into what sparks their experimentations. There’s Bonobo, Leon Vynehall, Christian Löffler, Viktor Birgiss and more.

Kiasmos plays Printworks London on 4 November.
