Disco Delusions With Mary Lake

I’m very glad and more than proud to work together with London-based model, designer, stylist, photographer, composer, singer and DJ (of course!) Mary Lake this time! Her extremely catchy song 'My heart' is one of the tracks. The closing song by Mayer Hawthorne is from his new album ‘Man About Town’ that came out last week.

One of the tracks is a re-edit by Todd Terje (named after his idol Todd Terry). He is Terje Olsen, a DJ and producer (Bryan Ferry, Robbie Williams) from Norway. Without any doubt Todd Terje took disco-edits to the highest level possible in the last 10 years. I was very impressed when I first heard his sets on ‘Beats in Space’. He refreshed disco with his very original dub effects. For a long time Todd Terje thought that disco was all a bit silly until

Norwegian disco pioneer Bjørn Torske’s ‘Sexy Disco’ caught his ears in 1999 and inflamed his love for the disco sound. In 2001 Todd Terje got in touch with Prins Thomas, and was also introduced to Hans-Peter Lindstrøm in Oslo. He soon began to make is own re-edits of old disco records and moved on to his own productions. He released his album ‘It’s album time’ in 2014 and collaborated with Bryan Ferry on his album ‘Avonmore’.

I told it before, but 'Groovejet' by Spiller was co-written by Rob Davis, former guitarist of glam rock band Mud. He also wrote Kylie Minogue's smash hit 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' and a long list of dance songs that includes Mika, Atomic Kitten, Oliver Cheatham, Grace, Lisa B and Saint Etienne.
