Every week we have artists with connections to Smekkleysa SM /Bad Taste to share with us songs which have inspired them. For this fourth installment we have been honored by Kaktus Einarsson of Fufanu and Ghostigital. Rumors of a solo album have been creeping around Reykjavík.

Kaktus Einarsson

Kaktus has been playing and writing music from young age and this prolific musician, composer and producer is best known for his work with Fufanu but he as also worked with artists such as Damon Albarn, Booka Shade and Bobby Womack.
