New Music // Tourist – Placid Acid

27 Mar

Sometimes great tracks slip through the cracks, this 2012 stunner by English producer Tourist is one of them, pure summer bliss.



New Music // Todd Terje – Delorean Dynamite

5 Mar

Todd Terje is a Norwegian electronic music producer who’s been slow building an extensive and impressive resume of remixes and EP’s, quietly elevating his stature over the past 10 years, give or take, as an elite member of the New Disco era.

And now, at seemingly the perfect point in his career, he’s trying his hand at the Long Play format with It’s Album Time, due for release April 8.

The first single is Deloream Dynamite, and it’s a perfect example of what raises Terje’s production head and shoulders above the crowd. Built on a muscular and propulsive 80’s movie bassline, the track is melodic, playful, and perfectly balanced at letting ideas have room to move without becoming boring or repetitive, as happens too often in this genre. He’s always adding just enough new elements and textures in support of the main theme to keep the entire journey fresh and exciting, including a pleasantly unexpected outro that serves as a blissful comedown from this starburst adventure.

It doesn’t get much better than this.
