  • BJØRN TORSKE: NICE EARPLUG REVIEW

Previously, Torske provided synth accompaniment for ambient comrade Biosphere, issued singles on Djax-Up-Beats, and established his talents via a series of expressive ...

  • SUNKISSED: 4,5 OUT OF 5 IN URB MAGAZINE

    "Selections of the finest in Norwegian talent from the psychedelic (Serena-Maneesh) to the electronic (Lindstrøm) and almost always both. Norway is on the cusp of becoming the new Paris when it comes to dance-floor style. This mix, named after Oslo`s most eclectic night, reps to the fullest. Not a herring in the bunch" (Urb ...

  • 120 DAYS: NME GIG RECOMMENDATION

    120 Days` gig at The Legion in London the 17th of May is recommended in NME this week. "No-one ever got laid by labelling their band "drone-rock", though Norway`s symphonic electro-atmosphericists might manage some heavy petting. With a sound located somewhere between Kraftwerk and Underworld, they make for an immersive listening experience" (NME)

  • SUNKISSED: GREAT FADER MAGAZINE REVIEW

    "Sunkissed is the mixtape version of G-Ha and Olanskii`s monthyly club night of the same name in Oslo, Norway, a dance party the duo claims is tied together by "a base of funk and leftism". I haven`t poped over there to verify - yet - but I can say that their mix is enjoyable diverse ...

  • BJØRN TORSKE: 4 OUT 5 IN DJ MAGAZINE!

    "The title translates as wrong button in Norwegian, but Bjorn Torske is actually right on it. For although you can readily identify some of the influences he pours in - Metro Area-style disco, dub and lounge jazz - after being pickled away inside Torskes`s head they emerge as something bewitchingly unique" (4/5, DJ MAGAZINE)

  • BJØRN TORSKE: 4 OUT OF 5 BBC REVIEW

    "Viking horns in zero gravity. Norway has always had an unusual musical climate. At one end of its spectrum is black metal; at the other, the sort of zero-gravity electronica that seems tailor-made for Cafe del Mar compilations. Bjorn Torske falls towards the latter camp - his remix of Royksopp

    Tussle "Kindermusik" (from Telescope Mind album)
    "If you haven`t already had your fill of bands offering new spins on the late -
    `70s NYC punk-disco formula then this gorgeously stripped-back slice of percussive, moody, liquid funk will be right up your street. But admittedly, that`s an increasingly big if. Then again, the cowbells might ...

  • 120 DAYS: NICE NME ALBUM REVIEW

    "Who knew that Norway had a space program? The first beneficiaries - after the herring they sent into orbit in the `50s, obviously - are Kristiansund cosmonauts 120 Days, who have transferred the celestial humming of the Milky Way`s darkest corners directly on to tape. We jest, of course. They`ve been listening to a lot ...

  • XLR8R OFFICE TOP TEN ALBUM PICKS:

    BJØRN TORSKE "FEIL KNAPP"
    "Prins Thomas has boasted the talents of this Norseman and rightfully so. Feil Knapp is oddball disco that at one moment falls in line with Lindstrom, and in the next sounds like Larsen covering Crystal Castles. Bjorn runs his own surreal production circus like a true ringmaster."
