Though he may still be tweaking the space laser to perfect album ‘Numero Twomero’, Terje has still found the time to tease us with a sneak preview of what’s to come in the form of this body moving, brain grooving cover version of a Norse synth spectacular from the dystopian dance floors of ’82. Inspired by his Dansbar diversions, Todd took to the studio for a little multitrack mania, replaying every part of this doomy dancer with all the Olsen sparkle you could ever wish for. Luring Det Gylne Triangel back into the booth for the first time in 25 years, Terje topped off the pops with a newly recorded vocal from the original lyricist, closing the temporal loop and opening the door to dance floor nirvana.
If you’ve been amongst the sweaty throngs worshipping at the altar of Alkan of a Friday or Saturday night over the past few months, you will no doubt have heard Erol laying down the oddball house stylings of “Balls Of Steel” by Beau Wanzer. So it’s little surprise to see the Nation and LIES artist one of the names called on to rework tracks from Alkan’s overdue debut EP Illumination. It’s even less of a surprise that Wanzer’s ‘adjustment’ of “Bang!” stands out, removing all the sharp edges and turning it into an effective techno bludgeoning tool that will shake sweaty basements apart. Don’t sleep on the A Side either however, as U’s version of “Check Out Your Mind” is even more twisted than the chopped up original.
