“A lot of songs make me happy but one that never fails is You dropped a Bomb on Me with The Gap Band.”
When the clock chimes midnight in Iceland the party really begins. Natalie G. Gunnarsdóttir, known as Dj Yamaho, knows where to go for the best music, to have drinks, some fun and meet new people in Reykjavík.
Best music venue?
Dolly with out a doubt. The best atmosphere in town.
This is a question that is impossible for me to answer, but one that has always been a strong contender is Cuddly Toy by Roachford.
Upcoming Icelandic musician?
Sísí Ey. Amazing music.
The coolest place where you’ve played music?
Sirkus may it rest in peace. Because every night would be like a rollercoaster ride.
Cranberry juice & club soda.
Hardwax, Berlin. They have the best selection and rarities you can’t find elsewhere.
Which song is most requested in Iceland?
Ain’t got nobody with Sísí Ey.
Cafe Rósenberg. Best place for good live music.
Dolly, because it is simply the best.
This is also an impossible question to ask a Dj, but one of my all-time favorites would have to be Rumours by Fleetwood Mac.
Strangest song request?
U2 in 3 O´clock in the morning while playing a pumping house set 🙁
Your thought on Harpa, the music hall?
I think it’s a long-awaited haven for the Icelandic music scene and music in general.
Where to meet new people?
A song that makes you happy?
A lot of songs make me happy but one that never fails is You dropped a Bomb on Me with The Gap Band.
A song that makes you sad?
Pearls by Sade.
Gullbylgjan 9.09. Play’s golden oldies.
Sísí Ey because their music blows your mind and the singers are so cute they make you blush.
Dolly no doubt about that.
A song you just won’t play?
Fly on the Wings of Love with Olsen brothers.
A place to relax?
Loftið in Austurstræti is the coolest bar in town to have a well mixed drink.
Where will you play this summer?
I will play all over, but I’m a resident at Dolly so I will be there guaranteed once a month making the crowd go wild.
