After the eight ear tickling tracks from The Big Cover Up, you'll feel like you've hit the dancefloor jackpot, but just wait for this bonus ball to drop. While you're stretching your best spandex to this disco double play, Dan Tyler's back on a tasty 10'' with two special dubplate versions of ''Disco Circus'' and ''Firecracker,'' ready to make you freak all over again.
Appearing on record together for the first time, Norway's premier disco troop Todd Terje & The Olsens have cooked up a double-pack dancefloor attack for your listening pleasure. Digging through their extensive collections of well-loved wax, Terje & the gang have specially selected a quartet of disco classics ripe for a remake. Forget re-edits though, this is The Big Cover-Up and the Olsen crew have hit the studio with all guns blazing on this wild version excursion. Our journey starts in Tokyo with a 303-driven take on Yellow Magic Orchestra's version of Martin Denny's ''Firecracker.'' The perfect combination of cocktail exotica and disco kitsch, this party pyrotechnic is reloaded with buoyant acid and beefed up bass, accelerating through Eastern guitar licks and operatic vocals before filling the night sky with an explosion of color. Falling somewhere between the Swingleinspired New Mjondalen Disco Swingers and Yello's ''Oh Yeah,'' the remake of the enduring ''Disco Circus'' puts the vocals at the forefront, locking us into a tribal trance state with its hypnotic rhythms. Next Terje & The Olsen's give ''Do You Wanna Bump?'' a bright and brassy make over perfect for cocktails and caviar on a Mediterranean yacht. While in the Med, take a trip to Greece with a sleek and slick spy flick remake of Vangelis' stunning ''La Fete Sauvage.'' Disc two is all about the dark room as Todd flips through his remix Rolodex and recruits some demolition experts keen on club destruction. The C-side finds Mexican maverick Daniel Maloso takes the lead with a synthed up club dub of ''Do You Wanna Bump?'' before Idjut Boy Dan Tyler brings the cosmic power on his spaced out version of ''Firecracker.'' Full Pupp impresario and gourmet Goulash chef Prins Thomas pays tribute to ''Whole Lotta Love'' with a full throttle remix of ''La Fete Sauvage'' while fellow Norwegian Oyvind Morken fires up the 808 on a percussive house mix of ''Disco Circus.''
Gatefold double vinyl includes 12" Insert and Digital Download card. "It's Album Time" is the long-awaited debut album from Norwegian producer, DJ and songwriter Todd Terje. On his debut album, Terje presents 12 of his works known and unknown, including the 2012 hit 'Inspector Norse' and a chilled, haunting cover of Robert Palmer's 'Johnny And Mary' featuring vocals from Bryan Ferry.
