Reinterpretations is the re-working of Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas' debut eponymous album from late 2005. Since then, they have been heralded the world over as the kings of cosmic space disco, spearheading the vanguard of new sounds emanating from their native Norway. This album collates their own alternative versions and vinyl-only B-sides and gives a more uptempo, dancefloor vibe to their highly praised debut. This release also includes two unreleased tracks that will be released on the Nummer Fire EP together with the album. If their debut was the ultimate Norwegian chill-out record, then this brings the duo's love of the groove firmly to the fore. As seen on Lindstrøm's Feedelity compilation last year and soon to be witnessed by Prins Thomas genre-splicing eclecticism on a double mix-CD for Eskimo, Reinterpretations brings together elements of funk, house, disco, psychedelia, Italo, boogie and beyond, taking them into a new Nordic dimension that further defines those lost halcyon releases of the post disco/punk era circa '78-'84. Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas provide yet more lush basslines, sublime melodies and rolling rhythms bursting with pure emotion. Throughout you can find the experimental energy of the continental space-disco of the '80s which the pair still adore: melodic, synth-heavy and Moroder-esque, with arpeggiated basslines set to proto-house 4/4 grooves.
