Todd Terje teams up with 80's Norwegian synth-pop veteran Det Glyne Triangel for his latest slab of disco wax, get yourself down to his smooth and crispy lounge dance while driving through downtown New York in your Delorean with your jacket sleeves rolled up, remix duties turn to recent Ride producer Erol Alkan.
A slice of excellent and lovely Todd Terje gets looked at in two new ways by two fairly different producers. The UK’s Luke Abbott adds a warm ambient haze over the whole thing, while Berlin producer and bakery owner (it's true, look it up) Dixon puts Snooze 4 Love on an intensive workout regime, making it into a lean dance floor cut. 12” on Olsen Records.
The Big Cover-Up is a warm-hearted cover selection from Norwegian live disco crew The Olsens, plus producer Todd Terje. Boney M, Vangelis and Martin Denny (via Yellow Magic Orchestra) all show up, and the second slab of vinyl contains remixes of the covers by primo groove-producers like Prins Thomas and Dan Tyler! Party! 2 LPs on Olsen Records.
Coming ten full years after his debut single you can't accuse Todd Terje of rushing this collection. He probably spent most of it saving up for a gentleman's tailored suit for guest star Bryan Ferry and coming up with buoyant disco jams that feel like a grab bag of things that sound a bit like Daft Punk, Royskopp or Air. Hopefully it won't be another ten years before he unleashes the inevitably titled It's Second Album O'Clock.
