Huxley – I Want You (Deetron Remix)

As premiered by Pete Tong last Friday night, here’s the beast of a remix of Huxley’s ‘I Want You’ by Deetron, due for release on the mighty Aus Music. For something a little more, light-hearted, feast your ears on the Swiss producer’s recent efforts on Todd Terje’s funky ‘Alfonso Muskedunder’:

For yet MORE Deetron, have a peak at his April residency shows on Rinse FM. They’re class.

Dolly Parton – Jolene (Todd Terje Remix)

If you’re fed up of winter, there are few things more cheering than news of a remix from everyone’s favourite Norwegian, Todd Terje.  This time he was set the task of remixing Dolly Parton’s seminal ballad ‘Jolene’ as part of T Magazine’s tribute to the queen of country music. A preview emerged in December, and now we have the full version:

Terje is careful to leave Parton’s voice to shine, instead focusing on dialling up the tune’s waltzing bassline and Flamenco-style guitar. He delays her powerful vocal until almost halfway through the track, setting the stage perfectly in what feels more like an homage than a remix.

This rework of Parton joins an illustrious roster of classic edits from TT, including his majestic ‘Stuck In The Middle With You’,  an exceptional effort on Chic’s ‘I Want Your Love‘ and the never-ending groove of KC & the Sunshine Band’s ‘I Get Lifted.

So cheer up, close your eyes, and think of summer months ahead listening to music like this.

LINDSTRØM & TODD TERJE – Lanzarote

Dropped today on Terje’s own label, Olsen, this is the fantastic exploration into cosmic disco by Terje himself and fellow Norwegian, Lindstrom. Full of the usual catchy hooks and stabbing synths, this will without doubt be on repeat for months to come, it’s brilliant. The closing vocal may be the cherry on the cake too, one of the best we’ve heard in a long time. The release is accompanied by a diskJokke remix, both are below.

They’re supposedly playing a handful of European festivals together this summer too. We wanna go, we wanna go, we wanna go to every one.

Having comfortably landed in at No. 2 in our Top 10 of 2012 with the ubiquitous ‘Inspector Norse’, we were delighted to hear this piece of news about the one they call Todd Terje.
