Todd Terje – It’s Album Time £19.99 LP & DL Code (Released 7th April)

Dance music and comedy aren’t the must obvious bedfellows. But for Norwegian producer, DJ and songwriter Todd Terje (pronounced Terr-yeah), the two are intrinsically entwined: entitled It’s Album Time, Terje’s debut album is the culmination of over a decade of DJing. While its roots are in sophisticated, synth laden nu-disco, the album is spiked with a sense of silliness, with tracks such as Alfonso Muskedunder and Preben Goes To Acapulco sounding straight out of a 70s detective show. After previously producing a dub edit of Roxy Music’s Love Is The Drug, the album also features a cover of Robert Palmer’s Johnny And Maryfeaturing none other than Bryan Ferry.

“The absence of a functional techno scene forced us to think out of the box,” Terje recently told Time Out London. “When I started DJing in Oslo around 2000, I quickly learnt to play a very, very mixed bag – be it bossa, funk, disco, rock, broken beats, jazz etc. It’s a good thing, as restricting yourself to a 4/4 beat isn’t very exciting.”
