About this item
Our secret agent in Oslo returns with another urgent communique in the Norsk Tripping series, containing six more tracks selected from a private vault of dance floor dynamite. Styles on show this time include modern Italo, solid gold punk-funkery, synth-outs, outsider pop & 80's obscurities. All given the sonic once-over for maximum playability.
The party starts with the Italo romp of "Robots", a chugging number with wormhole bass, occasional vocoder and the odd bit of ectoplasm. We return to earth with a 'bump' via the coke-y disco-not-disco of "NY77", an neat extension of Delta 5's angular and angsty "Mind Your Own Business", before the celestial sequences and pulsating bassline of electro bomb "Imperator" head through the clouds once again, possibly pausing to soundtrack an 80s montage. Flipping the pancake, "Cocteau" gives us the uber-Balearic, utterly cosmic edit of "Fifty Fifty Clown" we've been clamouring for, tripping us out before the dark but dreamy synth pop of "USSR" takes us off into the land of eyeshadow and homemade clothes like a Russian Flash And The Pan. Last but not least, "Camp & Cosmic" wrings Basil Kirchin's "Silicon Chip" through the interdimensional mangle, squeezing every last bit of spacey disco glitz out of the original. As always, a VERY limited run, so get it bought!
