Norse disco duo Todd Terje and Lindstrom have announced the release of Lanzarote, their first full collaborative release together, ahead of several planned live shows as the year progresses.
“Just because you can release something without a record label, which is now as simple as putting it on the internet, doesn’t mean you should. If you take it seriously, take some time to learn the art.” Pertinent words, especially when they come from someone who’s been in the game as long as Brennan Green. The New York based artist came to prevalence in the early 2000s, working closely with Daniel Wang and his Balihu imprint, before forging a close association with the Scandinavian axis of nu-disco a couple of years later.
Norwegian producer Lindstrøm has revealed details for his second album of 2012, entitled Smalhans.
It seems Hans-Peter Lindstrøm can do no wrong. His latest album, Real Life Is No Cool, has been rapturously received by every publication from Pitchfork to the Irish Times, and the praise is wholly justified. Whether he’s knocking out a 40-minute cover of Little Drummer Boy, or crafting a superb full-length album, the man has a svelte touch that appeals to pop fans and disco beards alike. We spoke to Lindstrøm about quitting the DJ circuit, his next productions and how he almost covered Boney M.
