“14 tracks: Scandinavian Disco Heat”

Thanks to the efforts of a handful of headstrong producers and zealous collectors, Scandinavia has gained a reputation for releasing some of the primest nu-disco on the planet. From the spiralling celestial odysseys of Lindstrom to the emo-swoon of Sally Shapiro's NRG-pop or Dolle Jolle's fractal Balaeric saunters, they've got the boogie on lockdown. It would take a musicologist to explain the addictive impact of the trademarked Scandinavian chord change, but it is possible to trace their varied and tangled roots back to the mediterranean fusions of Daniele Baldelli's Cosmic style as much as the classic throb of Giorgio Moroder's Munich sound, sharing a passion for avant garde European electronics mixed with more exotic African rhythms, obscure prog pop and classic disco funk. This 14 Track selection gives an outsiders overview, scanning Paavoharju's precious gem 'Kevätrumpu', Mungolian Jetset's psyche-disco refinement and the Europhoria of Johan Agebjørn's 'Mega Man II'. To celebrate the new year, feel free to release the disco viking inside you...

“A open door to a new, inviting world”

I have to confess to knowing almost nothing of these artists, despite being a bit of an Italo-disco fan. Good god, where has this music been all my life? All the joy, all the warmth, all the melody of Italo mixed with the minimalism of techno. Throw in a bit of dreamscape pop and hey presto - the most gorgeous dance music on earth is right here in front of your eyes. Thank you Boomkat!

“Just wondering”

Am I the only person in the world who thinks that those über long Lindstrom disco ballads are going over the edge into complete shopping-at-Tescos-(for-Noodles) territory? Where's the edge? I think they are over indulgent and forgettable. Other than that, let's EURODANS.

“Tusen takk!”

Ja, nice job Boomkat. Vee hav here some really "flott" Svedish musikal meatballs for hooty-tooty booty shaking on de not-so-cold Scandihoovian dance floor. Jeg elsker deg! :-)

“The Lindstrom tracks...”

...are actually my faves of the lot. Bit like Ulrich Schnauss gone disco. No, it's not edgy. Yes, it's ruddy gorgeous. Allons-y!

On 07 Jan 13:22 Will said:

“Just want to hear the tracks...”

before I make a comment. Though I don't doubt how good they are Boomkat!

“D.I.S.C.Yo!!!!!!!!!”

Scandinavia seems to produce some of the best music of the last few years, and these are no exception. Outstanding stuff.

“Tobias Bernstrup”

For people who like these sounds with a little italo disco twist and some 80's neo romantics flavours check Tobias Bernstrup from Sweden. Here is his latest EP called '1984': http://www.enfant-terrible.nl/ET002.html
