Please welcome: Itâ€™s The Arps! Osloâ€™s magic music maker Todd Terje has already gained a wunderkind like reputation for his gentle yet potent productions (we wonâ€™t mention the â€śEâ€ť word here) on labels like Full Pupp, Permanent Vacation or Running Back on top of being one of the best remixers money can buy (Shit Robot, Bryan Ferry, DĂ¸lle JĂ¸lle et cetera et cetera). What is there left for him to do? Establish a label of his own! â€śItâ€™s The Arpsâ€ť is the starting signal for Olsen. And what a splendid one it is. Created from scratch and solely on the mythical synthesizer ARP 2600 (check
www.letsnerd.com for help), it features four tracks (reads instant classics) that couldnâ€™t be a better follow-up to his 2011 super hit EP â€śRagyshâ€ť. Towering over the assortment is the laser crime scene called â€śInspector Norseâ€ť. Defying genres and blinkers, this is finest goose bumps dance music that makes you whistle along, laughing and crying all at the same time â€“ but the rest isnâ€™t half bad either. The short, but sweet â€śMyggsommerâ€ť gives away Terjeâ€™s secret love for quirky exotika, whereas â€śSwing Star Pt 1â€ť and its brother have a (balearic) brilliance and witchery to them that is rarely found nowadays.
