SHREM'S EXCLUSIVE: PERFECT PARTY PLAYLIST VOL. 5 by Kali (Steed Lord)
Svala Björgvins is a vocal diva extraordinaire, an electro fashionista, killer pop song-writer and one third of the Reykjavík founded synth-pop institution that is Steed Lord. It's a music and art collective from Iceland creating emotional electronic synthpop music and experimental visual art. Having created their own music videos and fashion films to go with their music, their creative passion is unstoppable as they live on the frontiers of pure creativity and music making with their amazing and energetic live performances, filmmaking, photography, fashion design, graphic design and other visual mediums. Drawing their musical inspiration from everything from disco to 80's pop to early house music, they have managed to create a world of their own that they call New Crack City where they create their music and art.
This 100% DIY project released two mind-blowing albums so far, 2008's "Truth Serum" followed by "Heart II Heart" in 2010. The flamboyant trio is currently in the studio putting the final touches to their long anticipated 3rd album. Their distinctive style both musically and visually makes them one of the most exciting electronic acts out there.

PERFECT PARTY PLAYLIST by Kali (Steed Lord):
1. Mercury feat. Robert Owens "Candlelight" - I just adore this song, it's sad but beautiful and it makes me wanna dance. I think this is one of the best songs this year. Soulful and powerful. Amazing vocals.

2. Legend "Devil In Me (Steed Lord Remix)" - Legend is an amazing icelandic electronic band. We remixed this great song that they wrote and is from their debut album Fearless. The lyrics and melody are pure perfection. And Krummi's vocals are stunning. Legend is an up and coming band and people need to get familiar with their music. If you wanna listen to amazing music you have to get into Legend. One of the best albums this year.

3. INXS "I Need You Tonight" - I've been a fan of them since forever. And this song is a classic. It's just so good. Goosebumps every time I listen to it. Michael's vocals are so sexy and there's so much quality there. He is missed. This tune is just a first class pop song. Love it. Adore it.
4. Stevie Nicks "Stand Back" - I'm a huge Stevie fan. She can do no wrong in my book. She worked with Prince on this song. It stands the test of time and is still as fresh as ever. Love the words and her vocals and the sound. Epic comes to mind when I listen to it. Power and love and lust.
5. Prince "I Would Die 4 U" - Prince is someone that I adore, I always have and always will. This song is one of the best pop songs ever written in my opinion. It's a great dance track and it's still modern and the way he delivers the words. So good. I've seen Prince perform live twice and it was mindblowing. The amount of talent in this man is totally mindboggling. He's a genius. One of the greats.
