What is the definition of epic? We think it is Of Norway‘s newest track Libertine. A 12 and a half minute long Nu-Disco monster, mindblowing from beginning to end. Techno as it might have sounded had this genre already existed at Woodstock.
For Libertine, Preben Olram – a Norwegian multi musician and voice actor – joined the Of Norways and played live bass and percussions, as well as vocal percussions.
Libertine has been the closing track of Of Norway‘s live set for around half a year, always causing ovations, screaming people and goosebumpish hands-in-the-air-moments. Check the recording of their live-set in Moscow for example, on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biVmVApdh6A
After their winning release ‘Blott Ditt Eige Lam‘ on Silicone Soul‘s infamous Darkroom Dubs imprint, and their ambientish declaration of love ‘Song For Ava‘ on Connaisseur, which entered several chill-out charts, Libertine is the Oslo boys‘ next release in 2012.
We feel honoured that Offenbach deep house legend and Playhouse veteran Losoul did the remix treatment on the flipside. He did what he does best, loosening the outer flesh gently to get to the filet of the track. The result is a stripped down afterhourish deep house track with techy references and big balls. It is stunning how he transformed the original track‘s sweet melody into something crawling, almost spooky. Thanks Pete for this Killer!
