Was reading the ever dependable DJ History Furtive 50 – Best of 2011 feature on the plane home, and nice to see some great tracks being recognised in there.
Soft Rocks’s amazing Buffalo shuffler, Maurice Fulton as Boof, Rub ‘n’ Tug with Scanners, Harvey’s conquering Locussolus project & Todd Terje all feature in the rundown, with Terje claiming the top spot for his Running Back EP. You can read a brief interview with Todd also at DJH (Reminds me i should really get a photo credit for that ‘tache/sunset shot)
In fact Terje seems to be pretty much taking over the world right now, With Ragysh being voted Number 1 record of the year by both DJ History & London’s Phonica Records. In addition Resident Advisor have both ‘Snooze for Love’ & ‘Ragysh’ inside their top five of last year! ‘Snooze’ also features in Pitchfork.com’s list.
If that’s not enough and you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months Terje’s new “Its the Arps” EP is out in the wild. Expect to see this in all the best of 2012 charts come December…
Also there’s this: Terje’s remix of Bjorn Torske finally sees the light of day with additional mixes coming from DJ Harvey: Oppkok EP
