REMIXXXXXXX is King
This remix of Harrys Gym (who kind of sound like the Norwegian Blonde Redhead) by diskJokke aka Joachim Dyrdhal kind of sounds like something you’d play at a “beach rave”. While we’ve never been to a “beach rave” (They happen in Croatia?), we hope that they are chock full of these kind of smooth, funkified jams to bliss out to. Dyrdahl belongs to a set of Oslo-based beatmasters and DJ’s that are pumping out some of the most cavernous and euphoric disco music in the world right now, revolving around the legendary, still-running Sunkissed party. Most recently, he’s been working on his own concoction of heady four/four psych-outs and his first long player, entitled Staying In, which will be released on March 11 through Smalltown Supersound. We rang up Dyrdhal on a calm Friday evening to chat about his music, this remix, and his secret nerd life as a mathematician.
