The Big Cover-Up


Appearing on record together for the first time, Norway's premier disco troop Todd Terje & The Olsens have cooked up a double-pack dancefloor attack for your listening pleasure. Digging through their extensive collections of well-loved wax, Terje & the gang have specially selected a quartet of disco classics ripe for a remake. Forget re-edits though, this is The Big Cover-Up and the Olsen crew have hit the studio with all guns blazing on this wild version excursion. Our journey starts in Tokyo with a 303-driven take on Yellow Magic Orchestra's version of Martin Denny's "Firecracker." The perfect combination of cocktail exotica and disco kitsch, this party pyrotechnic is reloaded with buoyant acid and beefed up bass, accelerating through Eastern guitar licks and operatic vocals before filling the night sky with an explosion of color. Falling somewhere between the Swingle-inspired New Mjondalen Disco Swingers and Yello's "Oh Yeah," the remake of the enduring "Disco Circus" puts the vocals at the forefront, locking us into a tribal trance state with its hypnotic rhythms. Next Terje & The Olsen's give "Do You Wanna Bump"" a bright and brassy make over perfect for cocktails and caviar on a Mediterranean yacht. While in the Med, take a trip to Greece with a sleek and slick spy flick remake of Vangelis' stunning "La Fete Sauvage." Disc two is all about the dark room as Todd flips through his remix Rolodex and recruits some demolition experts keen on club destruction. The C-side finds Mexican maverick Daniel Maloso takes the lead with a synthed up club dub of "Do You Wanna Bump"" before Idjut Boy Dan Tyler brings the cosmic power on his spaced out version of "Firecracker." Full Pupp impresario and gourmet Goulash chef Prins Thomas pays tribute to "Whole Lotta Love" with a full throttle remix of "La Fete Sauvage" while fellow Norwegian Oyvind Morken fires up the 808 on a percussive house mix of "Disco Circus."
