Longstanding providers of quality machine funk from Norway, Tromsø-based imprint Beatservice Records has been spanning a wide spectrum of genres throughout its 25 years. Returning this fall with a remix compilation featuring local talents Third Attempt, Lakeshouse, Jarle Braathen, Kohib, Flunk plus more.
The first single out of the gate comes from Third Attempt, real name Torje Fagertun Spilde, originally from Asker just outside of Oslo. Now established in Tromsø, he is one of the young forces in the rising new generation of electronic producers from the birthplace of the Northern Disco Groove. His distinct and uplifting flavour, is firmly planted on the smooth side of deep house. His influences ranging from jazz to ambient, trip hop to house.
After four EPs on the label, he released the acclaimed album ‘World Is Too Loud’ in April 2020. Lifted from this most recent album release is Third Attempt’s lush deep-house chugger ’Transit’ which gets the jazz-infused remix treatment from expert vibist Henrik Villard, previously heard on TwoFiveSix, Moskalus and Tooman. Setting us in a heavy-lidded poolside party scenario, the track has you drifting amidst hypnagogic vapours and beach sunrise vibrations as trumpets and hi-hats weave together in a graceful concert of sorts. There’s also Third Attempt’s own late hours ‘Balearic Sunrise Remix’, along with a radio edit of the album version.
