In keeping with both Lindstrom and Todd Terje's recent work, "Lanzarote" is a peak time dancefloor-aimed electrodisco / hi-NRG bomb with an upbeat rhythm and keyboard arpeggios adding little hooks to reel you in. There's even a bit of a Euro rap near the end for extra holiday-disco fun. Diskjokke give the track a touch of Cerrone or Moroder, layering up the synths and giving the rhythm more of a flat piston-driven sound. There's also an acapella and "Krokstapella", which has the rap mixed with an almost samba style percussive groove.
"Hello guys and gals, it's been exactly one year since the first release on Olsen Records, so I suppose it´s time for a new one, now together with studio buddy Lindstrøm. “Inspector Norse” took me to a lot of cheesy places with lots of cash, and I expect nothing less with this new one called... “Lanzarote”! (pronounthed with a lithp and a finger thnap) The working title for this was “Cowley”, let's see if any of you can figure out why :) B-side remix by DJ-turned-mathematician DiskJokke turns down the gayness, but keeps most of the elements for a version even the most serious of the deep house mafia can play." yørs trüly, Tødd Tërje (and silent partner Häanz-Peter)
