It’s time to put on some decent contemporary music. Thanx to my man Alien for introducing me this artist.
You know, here at Martini & Jopparelli’s we are mostly focused on old music, but this doesn’t mean all new music is bad. The fact is, as you’ll hear, most of the time dope new music around takes inspiration from the good old days! We’re getting old, after all. Nothing sounds new to us, no more. Everything is a remake. Let’s put on some dope remakes then. ;-)
A new style of electronic music is breaking the dancefloors worldwide. This style is called nu disco. Lindstrom, a producer from Norway, is the undisputed prophet of this new way of making your girl’s booty shake.
Well, he is more than a dj-producer, he is a complete musician, he plays all instruments and has a superior talent in building synth arpeggios textures that evolve taking your mind to another galaxy. “Mental music” (as my man CJ says) is the right definition i think. But he knows also how to put some decent drums over those keyboard chords. The result is, in one word, dope.
Recently (at least in Italy), the club music scene is dominated by minimal house: a style that really sucks in my opinion. So i’m glad to welcome a producer that slowed down the BPMs and brought some structured, stimulating, sound-rich grooves. Classic disco sounds, funky beats, catchy arrangements, what do you want more? Lindstrom and Prins Thomas: Norway’s on the rise, enjoy!!!!
