Lindstrom & Prins Thomas Reinterpret
- Words: Fred Miketa
Norway owns the cosmic disco game the way the South owns pissed-off rap music, making Lindstrom and Prins Thomas the Ludacris and T.I. of spacey dance music. Independently, both artists have put Norway on the geographical disco radar, with numerous releases on their own Feedelity, Full Pupp, and Tamburin imprints.
But these two Norsemen have a lot more in common than simply making twilight zone-house for their individual labels. Both producers are kingpins of the remix game, reinterpreting artists like LCD Soundsystem, Martini Bros, Chicken Lips, Flunk, and The Juan MacLean. More importantly, they created one of the most outlandish dance records of 2005 with the collaborative album Lindstrom & Prins Thomas (Eskimo).
On Reinterpretations, their latest foray into remix mania, the guys shake things up with a groove-heavy re-up of their 2005 odyssey. Like an electro-house dance party soaked with the blood of a prog orchestra, Reinterpretations has the ability to catapult listeners into an alternate cosmic realm (see psych-guitar intros and lots of Theremin synth sounds).
In addition to the bulk of their reworks, the guys have bestowed listeners with two new tracks from the forthcoming Nummer Fire EP, including one 20-minute escapade.
1. Turkish Delight (12” Version)
3. Mighty Girl
4. Vrang Og Vanskelig
5. Feel PM
6. Boney M Down (Alternative Version)
7. Tempo Tempo
8. Nummer Fire En
9. Nummer Fire To
