Norway’s Stian Gjevik has been wowing everyone of late with his ecstatic neo-acid house alias EOD, and on this new 12” he’s back to another of his alter-egos, CN, to drop four crisp, upbeat modern house cuts which you’ll never tire of. Sadly the track titles are on the disc itself but the opener is a totally blissed out bit of housetronic goodness with subtle Fourtet-esque beats, cosmic analogue synth shimmers and a persistent acid bassline, while the other track on side A is a much more aggressive proposition, uptempo with crunching beats and siren-blare synthplay over retro-futurist synth abstractions, bit of an experimental club banger, this one, like a modern acid take on Herbie Hancock’s late ‘70s electro-jazz.
Flip it and he’s back on his warm electrohouse tip for a spacious, bright number that once again reminds us of the likes of Fourtet and Bonobo, brilliantly minimal and yet infectiously melodic, it’s delicately constructed and not at all overdone, in stark contrast with the previous track’s aggressive and slightly cluttered assault. Then to close things off there’s a bit of shuddering cosmic synth house which is reminding me of French people like Kavinsky, driven by a hyperspeed analogue pulse, there’s bright chiptunes-esque melodic shapes and a pumping, aggressive beat for an immense bit of pumping nighttime techno, perfect for driving through long tunnels to. Wasn’t crazy about the second of these four tracks but the other three more than make up for it!

Best customer service I've had from any online retailer. This particular record was out of stock but emails were sent each week to keep me updated and when the record arrived the wait was totally worth it! Really friendly emails too no robot responses! Highly recommended and I will definitely be using Norman records again in the future!
