Sommerfeldt (Badabing, Paper Recordings) provides a steady and dreamy club-dub of the original track, keeping bits of the soft and airy vocal and mellow guitars, while adding a proper house-groove underneath it. A filtered, slightly overdriven FM style bass and a tripped out arpeggiator adds some tension in the mix. Early morning, late night vibes all over the place on this one!
Ellis – Kikerter & ris Singel December 16th (Metronomicon Audio / Diger)
Ellis is Ellen Sofie Mosebekk from Oslo, now living in Belgium. In 2019 she released her debut album “Hverdag & Fest” with reworks of soul- and reggae classics and self-written lyrics in Norwegian. The songs were recorded mainly at Metronomicon Audio. Her vocals have also been featured on several tracks by Norwegian electronica producer Snasen. Now she’s back with a cover of the Bodø reggae band Manna: Kikerter & ris is a vegetarian anthem in the oh so carnivorous pre christmas-time. Even with no bells attached this can be view as a seasonal banger! The single also contains an extended dub, both recorded and produced by none other than Center of the Universe.
Center of the Universe is summing up the year with a video and single! A song about the year 2022, obviously not a good year for everyone! Maybe we are all hoping for a better 2023? The track sums up the year knowing it is an impossible task: the post pandemic reality, the attempts at a Metaverse, the ominous feeling that time flies by. The track also hints to the sound of modern (hyper) pop and (mumble) rap with a bass-heavy beat and shimmering synths. It’s an outlier in the catalouge of the artist, yet it might prove as a good intro for the modern pop listener. If anyone wants to sing or rap on this go download the instrumental! And please release it or send us the result!
