Cavego - Gudbrandsdalen EP



For nearly two decades now Norway has been synonymous with disco music, artists such as Lindstrøm, Prins Thomas and Todd Terje redefining the genre.  Now, following in their footsteps, a new generation are breaking through and Even Hymer Gillebo, aka Cavego, has firmly established himself as one of the most exciting with acclaimed singles on labels such as Youth Control and Get Dancy and remixes for nu-disco stars like Satin Jackets and Blende.
 
Now signed to renowned Belgian label Eskimo Recordings, home to two seminal albums by Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas, Cavego is set to solidify his reputation with his debut EP, the sparkling and playful ‘Gudbrandsdalen’.
 
Named after the famous Gudbrandsdalen Valley, an iconic location in Norwegian literature and culture and where Cavego’s family have long kept a cabin, the EP’s genesis began last spring when he returned to the place he spent his formative years to collect the sounds of running creeks, birdsong, the wind in the grass and create music based on his childhood experiences.
 
With his collection of vintage synthesizers, carefully, relocated out to the remote cabin, these field recordings would go on to become the basis for the EP. Opening, naturally, with the delicate electronica of ‘Welkomst, the sound of flowing water and warm synth arpeggios perfectly setting the tone for what’s to come and segueing neatly into ‘Vår I Øyer’.
 
An irrepressibly upbeat slice of Nordic disco 'Vår I Øyer' (literally 'Spring in Øyer', Øyer being a small village in Gudbrandsdalen where Cavego’s family have for centuries been farmers) is a sonic tribute to the beauty and magic of the Norwegian countryside and forms the cornerstone of the EP.
 
Continuing the theme of place and exploring his childhood, the EP’s 2nd track ‘Kjeiken is named after his family’s summer farm. Based on his experiences walking through pine forests, heather, and moss to Kjeiken the track is another enchanting, playful number full of delicate sounds and crystalline melodies.
 
Adopting a darker tone, ‘Vertikal Vind’ sees Cavego create a musical soundtrack for the long night drive back from his cabin. The resulting music has a hypnotic, dreamlike feel that perfectly captures the otherworldly, frozen landscape, the snowflakes whipping off the metres-high snowbanks on either side of the road illuminated in the headlights like thousands of tiny stars.
 
Next up is ‘Hafjell, named after one of Norway’s most renowned ski resorts, and where the slalom and giant slalom events during the Olympics in 1994 were held. Inspired by the games the track’s atmospheric intro recalls a slalom skier inspecting the piste before launching off and navigating the slalom gates at exhilarating speed.
 
Closing out the EP we have the dreamlike ‘Farvel (Farewell), whose soft chants and thick, warm analogue synths provide a suitably magic coda to this stunning debut EP. The perfect soundtrack to both sweaty parties in urban clubs and long treks across a fairytale like wilderness, ‘Gudbrandsdalen’ reassures us that the future of Norwegian disco is in safe hands for years to come.








Cavego - Kjeiken announces debut EP

Satin Jackets feat. Anduze - Athena


 
Athena’ is the latest single from nu-disco star Tim Bernhardt, aka Satin Jackets, and sees the German producer team up with American soul singer Anduze. The resulting collaboration is classic Satin Jackets, the track’s warm melodies, light, breezy guitars, delicate piano and driving rhythm creating the perfect backdrop for Anduze’s stunning vocals and emotional lyricism.
 
Talking about the track Anduze explains “Athens, Greece has always lured me in with her warmth, charm, and overall ancient beauty. After visiting each year for a decade, I was inspired to write about the city I now live in.”
 
“Once I'd finished the lyrics, the musical landscape I thought would compliment it best was a vintage and melodic electro vibe. I've always loved Satin Jackets' style and production, so I thought to reach out to Tim, and I feel so fortunate that we could collaborate. The result is just what I’d pictured it to be… Athena.”
 
Whether producing modern Balearic house anthems such as 'You Make Me Feel Good', seductively soulful tracks like 'Through The Night' or genuine poolside classics like 'For Days', Tim has established himself as one of the biggest names in the modern disco scene clocking up more than 30 million streams of the debut Satin Jackets album, 'Panorama Pacifico', on Spotify alone.

Simon Says - Feel Me



Keeping things nice and sleazy Parisian producer Simon Says makes his debut on Eskimo Recordings covering English synth-pop band Blancmange's 1982 album track 'Feel Me'.
 
Transforming the song into the kind of outrageously funky slice new wave disco that could have sat proudly on an old Ze Records compilation its low slung groove is now sure to soundtrack as many illicit 'Cinq a Sept' assignations as it is sweaty dancefloor moments.
 
Upping the tempo French remixer extraordinaire Yuksek turns the track into a streamlined, sci-fi disco number complete with vocodered FX, bubbling cosmic arpeggios and synth stabs that spin off into space and builds to a suitably uplifting climax.
 
Meanwhile Greek producer and Eskimo veteran NTEIBINT strips the track down to its bare skin and puts the focus on its percussive elements and rubbery bass line, the result a chugging floor filler that shows exactly why Eskimo keep his number on speed dial.
 
Finally disco historian Bill Brewster returns to Eskimo a year on from his acclaimed 'Tribal Rites' compilation with an extended re-edit that once again proves that he's as handy with razor and tape as he is behind the decks.

Aeroplane feat. Yves Paquet - Body (Mind Enterprises Remix)



Having seen one of their biggest acts, Aeroplane, make a triumphant return to the label with ridiculously summery single 'Body', Eskimo Recordings have now tapped up Italian DJ and producer Andrea Tirone, aka Mind Enterprises, to remix the track.

"The first time I listened to the original I felt like I knew the song already," explains Andrea. "So I had lots of fun remixing it." Where the original leaned hard on Balearic disco and early house vibes, Mind Enterprises' remix take us deep into Italo territory and if it was fun to produce in the studio it's even better heard on the dancefloor.

Underpinned by an outrageously funky bass line and a melody that's sure to stick in your head for months to come, Yves Paquet's vocals once again take flight, the resulting track the sonic equivalent of the best cocktail on a beach you've ever had, plastic flamingo and umbrella included, of course.

Satin Jackets feat. Niya Wells - Primordial



"They only watch because our love is so primitive"

'Primordial' is the latest single from nu-disco hit machine Tim Bernhardt, aka Satin Jackets, and sees the German producer reunited with North Carolina based singer Niya Wells. Combining some of the best beats and basslines in the business with a smattering of piano and some delicately swirling strings, Tim has produced the perfect setting for Niya's sultry, lovelorn vocals. The end result is an electrifying house track that goes down easier than the first cocktail of the night, sure to soundtrack the summer.

Talking about the song Niya explains, "A few months after the release of 'Never Enough'  Tim sent me several new tracks and I immediately gravitated towards this track. While writing the lyrics, the word 'primitive' kept coming to mind, I wasn't completely sold on it for various reasons – one reason being the negative connotations tied to it – but I just couldn't release the idea.

There's much to love about those moments that don't require much thought. Those rare experiences with individuals who just happened to show up at the right place, at the right time, seeking, craving that primal connection and that's what I wanted to capture with this song. No one should ever feel the need to censor themselves or miss out on life changing happenings, for the sake of conforming to the demands of those who don't matter. Tap into that primitive energy! Live your life, and see what you connect to!"

Whether producing modern balearic house anthems such as 'You Make Me Feel Good', seductively soulful tracks like 'Through The Night' or bonafide poolside classics like 'For Days', Tim has established himself as one of the biggest names in the modern disco scene clocking up more than 25 million streams of the debut Satin Jackets album, 'Panorama Pacifico', on Spotify alone.
