Last year, the Norwegian sultan of swing Todd Terje put out one of my favorite releases that was the euphoric behemoth Inspector Norse. Terje’s follow-up this year comes in the form of Strandbar, which in Norwegian translates to ‘beach bar’. Strandbar dropped today on his Olsen imprint with three versions – Samba, Disko, and Bonus. Stream the full ‘Disko Version’ below.
Future Classic‘s own, Touch Sensitive isn’t a sound, it’s a feeling. It’s served frothy, always smooth, and imported strait from down under. With a wardrobe only to match the intricacy of his sounds, a beautiful music mosaic is formed. Ascending and descending melodies paired with funky bass will have you cruising in the sun-kissed rays in no time. It’s time to eat some pizza, get sensitive, see sounds, and listen to colors because when this tape is over, you’ll swear you might have drank a little too much of that serotonin smoothie.
Oh, did i forget to mention this is the solo project of Mikey from Van She?
