Here is the last ride to feel some of the groove that our guest shared at our last party.
Enjoy his amazing technique, his slammin selection, his lovely charisma.
Madame et monsieur, enjoy Flavio Folco presents Busker.
Honoring the roots and wires of Detroits’ 909 and 303 sounds, Flavio Folco blends elements of hip-hop, electro, breakbeat techno, futuristic soul and funk music committed to the edge of post-acid house styles. An audio injection into the body-mind as we wave through the polyrhythmic ensemble of molecular beats and crisscrossed percussive patterns.
If Prins Thomas hasn’t moved far from the “cosmic disco” sound he helmed in the mid-’00s, he’s at least forged his own variations on spacey electronic music. His albums have increasingly drifted away from the dance floor, negotiating the space between psychedelic rock and kosmische. From 2010’s self-titled album and on through 2014’s III, the Oslo native has devoted himself to crafting lengthy, zoned-out compositions.
No surprise, then, that for his latest album, Thomas Moen Hermansen set out to create something mostly ambient. Released on Smalltown Supersound instead of his own Full Pupp label (a first for Hermansen), Principe Del Norte is said to be indebted to ’90s-era IDM and ambient-house, acts like The Orb, Black Dog and The KLF. But the music sounds more aligned with the likes of Manuel Göttsching, Michael Rother and Klaus Schulze—kosmische and krautrock artists who have long been reference points for Hermansen.
With nine tracks clocking in at nearly 100 minutes, Principe Del Norte reveals its best qualities in the focus of solitude.
