Todd Terje unveils new single ‘Delorean Dynamite’ from It’s Album Time


A glitterball stomper from the Nordic disco king.

Todd Terje has revealed a brand new track from his forthcoming debut, It’s Album Time.

‘Delorean Dynamite’ is shimmering, chrome-edged beast tricked out with the kind of gliding synths, funky bass and wobbling arpeggios that Terje has made his own over his already lengthy career, and it definitely showcases the retro side of his eclectic new album (which does not disappoint, we can assure you).

The new single and It’s Album Time are both set for release on April 7 via Olsen Records. Pre-order the album from iTunes and you’ll get an instant download of ‘Delorean Dynamite’, while pre-orders from Rough Trade will get an exclusive 7-track CD on release.

An album launch party is planned for March 8 at London’s Oval Space, with Terje playing alongside Bicep and Maurice Fulton, and he’ll also be playing at the Bugged Out Weekender in Southport on March 7.

Four Tet uploads unofficial Ellie Goulding remix to SoundCloud


The UK producer known as Four Tet has put his stamp on Ellie Goulding‘s ‘Burn’, and uploaded it to SoundCloud.

In his usual matter-of-fact way, the producer, whose real name is Kieran Hebden, has titled the song “I got this song Burn stuck in my head so I did a remix and Ellie DMed me and she’s into it”, which pretty much sums up how the remix came about.

The remix is a prime example of Four Tet’s ability to construct authentic and captivating drum patterns, and said percussion is then complemented by the processed vocals of Ellie Goulding from her track ‘Burn‘.

Listen to the remix for yourself below.
