En Fin Tid

SMALLTOWN SUPERSOUND Aug 26th 2010
Vinyl


Diskjokke delivers another trippy mastodon of epic prog disco with his new album, En Fin Tid. At once hypnotic, stomping and futuristic, the new record maintains this aesthetic without sacrificing melody or subtlety. The album flows like a journey in sound, with each song seamlessly drifting into the next. Whereas Diskjokke's debut album, Staying In, was a collection of songs made over many years, En Fin Tid was created with the intention of being released as a complete album, lending itself to an evident continuity. The album, recorded and entirely self-produced in Diskjokke's new studio, draws its inspiration from Holger Czukay's mid 80s period, Brian Eno, Arthur Russell, European disco, Allan Parsons, Tangerine Dream, Arthur Lyman and Craig Leon. En Fin Tid, which means "a happy time" in Norwegian, refers to the period in which the album was written and recorded. Since the release of Staying In, many of Diskjokke's dreams have come true - he now focuses on music full time (as opposed to Staying In, which was recorded in the midst of studying), he performs at the clubs where he always aspired to play, and most importantly, has become a father. Additionally, Diskjokke has become a much sought-after remixer. He's made quite a name for himself with his distinctive, dubby blend of house, italo and disco remixes.
