Well known locally in Norway’s house, disco and techno scene, Of Norway is now building their name internationally thanks to great releases on labels such as Connaisseur Recordings, Darkroom Dubs and My Favorite Robot Records.
Their impressive skills in the booth have taken them to top end clubs like Fabric of London and Tresor, Bar25 and Katerholzig in Berlin. Their live sets are, like their productions, a little quirky and melodic, but with a clear house and disco influence, as evidenced on their latest offering ‘Running Lights’. The duo is on the cusp of being a headline act in Europe, and this excellent new EP is only likely to strengthen their cause.
The two tracker is simple: Running Lights II, and its wavy grooves and rich chords over the course of a 7 minute runtime, and (today’s exclusive premiere) Running Lights IV. Running Lights IV is a more up-beat and propulsive house track than its predecessor. The drums are nicely driven, the hi hats are sandy and a fluid distant ticking adds yet more motion to the groove. Chords grow in stature as things progress, adding a sense of urgency as they do. This is classy and emotive club music that really strikes a resonant note and one for the more considered dancefloors out there.
‘Running Lights’ is available 18 September on Skint Records
