Some 16 years after launching, Prins Thomas's Full Pupp label continues to champion distinctive dance music made by Norwegian producers, and those from elsewhere who call the country home. The latest is Oslo-based Bulgarian Ivaylo, who follows two EPs for the imprint with a suitably impressive album co-produced by the Full Pupp supremo. Featuring a suitably cosmic, off-kilter take on deep house rich in quirky instrumentation, drowsy motifs and mind-altering effects, the eight-track set sees Ivaylo flit between space disco-influenced positivity ("Landing"), shuffling, loose-limbed positivity ("Norr?n"), sleazy late-night heaviness ("Sofia Dub"), Scandeolearic grooves ("Skandinavis") and skewed retro-futurism (the analogue-rich "Hus").
