Waking Disco regular Kellini is Thunder Jam's newest recruit. For his first outing on the prolific label, the Norwegian producer has delivered an impressive, seven-track selection that serves as a superb advert for his production and musicianship. There are no edits here, just original tracks laden with fuzzy electric bass, clipped guitars and thickset vintage synth sounds. There's naturally much to admire throughout, from the breezy, melodious and floor-friendly title track and low-slung disco-funk pressure of "Vekslepenger", to the thrilling synth boogie/house fusion of "Siste Forsok" and impressively tactile Scandolearic bubbler "Slapper Av". The latter may well be the EP's standout moment, though Italo-inspired closer "They Say" is almost as good.
Norway's Kellini has been tentatively branching out from his safe enclave at the Walking Disco label, dipping his toe of late in the waters of new and different labels like Thunder Jam and now, Hot Digits. Its been good for him to stretch his creative legs, with this new five track EP a case in point. Displaying a newfound maturity, highlights of the release include the West End Records-style warm boogie of "Varighet", the title track's raunchy arpeggiated knees up and the moody electro-funk of "Landomrader". Quality retro dancefloor vibes.
