!! OMG, listen to this: Todd Terje ‘Johnny And Mary (feat. Bryan Ferry)’ !!

Todd Terje has teamed up with Roxy Music‘s Bryan Ferry to cover of Robert Palmer‘s “Johnny and Mary”, and if you’re used to hearing Todd create beautiful disco tracks, let’s slow it down for a second and appreciate him as a well-rounded producer, described in a wordy way only Pitchfork could express (coffee hasn’t touched these lips yet):

Opening with light flurries of starry synths and a bare, snapping beat reinforced by subtle low-end, Terje’s production meditates on the same wistful undertones in the original “Johnny and Mary”: melodies lilt and billow in slow motion, seemingly transfixed by the memories evoked through Bryan Ferry’s smoke-worn croon.

Todd Terje‘s It’s Album Time is expected to drop April 8th 2014, you can pre-order it HERE.

!! OMG, let’s all head to the roller-disco: Todd Terje returns with “Spiral & “Q” !!

Norwegian producer Todd Terje is back with some summer heat for your frozen, wintered bones. He’s just released 2 new warm tracks which you can stream, in full below. From SPIN:

“Spiral” is a beaming, Italo-inspired answer to Miami Vice, right down to the roto-toms. It’s not all so sunny, though: Listen closely, and you may even hear a hint of the Cure’s Disintegration in the chiming guitars. The B-side’s “Q”, meanwhile, is a 12-minute foray into what the label describes as “trance-not-trance,” and we’re inclined to agree with them. Playing a lean synthesizer arpeggio off twinkling chords, and spinning it all through loop-de-loops of filtered delay, it would make a fine soundtrack to any roller-disco outings you may have planned this holiday season — or ice-rink disco, for that matter.

Terje’s debut album is due out in March, 2014!

[thanks Kev!]
