Eskimo Recordings present their debut artist album release, produced by two of the hottest leftfield dance artists around, namely Hans-Peter Lindstrøm and fellow Norwegian, Thomas M. Hermansen (aka Prins Thomas). On Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas, they join forces in mutual admiration and inspiration of each other's productions: Lindstrøm as muso-wizard and Prins Thomas as the nu-skool remix-champ. Lindstrøm is rapidly becoming one of the biggest new names on the electronic dance circuit, with a string of highly regarded EPs under his belt, including the recent underground smash "I Feel Space." He's remixed artists for labels like Wall of Sound to Clone and Kingsize and no remix package is complete these days without one of his analogue-heavy, Italo-esque reworkings. Prins Thomas has made a name for himself as the remix king from Norway, working the likes of Kango's Stein Massiv, Martini Bros, Flunk, Diskodans, Bermuda Triangle and Jackmaster Dahle amongst a host of other tip top names from the underground as well as releasing his own music on Feedelity and Rong Music. They both have a background from different band-projects; ranging from punk to gospel via country to heavy metal to folk and psychedelia and run their own labels Feedelity, Full Pupp and Tamburin from their Scandinavian home-base. The duo unleash their highly anticipated debut longplayer on the label that has given us defining mix CDs from The Glimmers, Optimo, Recloose, Rub N Tug, Headman, Ivan Smagghe and most recently Chromeo. Featuring Italo, funk and disco-influenced productions alongside sounds of the post disco/punk era circa '78-'84, Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas provide us with lush basslines, sublime melodies and rolling rhythms that cascade like snowflakes being hit by harsh early-morning sunlight -- icy, but with a heart 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. So stick it on and wrap yourself up in the basslines and melodies of Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas's sublime Norse code.
