Lindstrøm - Smalhans (album sampler) (Smalltown Supersound)

Smalhans is the fourth solo album by Norwegian producer Hans-Peter Lindstrøm, closing out a very prolific 2012. Earlier this year he released Six Cups of Rebel, which was a very personal album for Lindstrøm and showed his more experimental side. Now, this forthcoming record, out November 5th on Smalltown Supersound / Feedelity, finds Lindstrøm back on the dance floor with six monumental tracks – classic Lindstrøm style. Smalhans was mixed by his friend Todd Terje, who has also made extended edits which will be released as 12”s. The album title is an old Norwegian word and means scarcity or simply poverty. Each track on the album is titled after a traditional Norwegian meal. This sampler features two of the album’s tracks, “Rà-àkõ-st” and “Ęg-gęd-ōsis” showcasing the cosmic, Italo-tinged dance floor sound on display throughout Lindstrøm’s album. Dive in.

Ewan Pearson - “‘Ęg-gęd-ōsis’ is so good. Ecstatic disco with more musical chops than most can even dream of. Great mix from Terje, too.”
Dirt Crew - “Amazing tracks! Good to have some new Lindstrøm for the bag.”
Recloose - “Exquisitely produced and pushing all the right buttons.”
Sleazy McQueen - “Amazing.”
Chris Coco “‘Ęg-gęd-ōsis’ is a really cool and bouncy tune … simple and super effective. I love it.”
6th Borough Project - “‘Rà-àkõ-st’ is a serious groove … dive in, indeed!”
Q-Burns Abstract Message - “Of course … fantabulous. ‘Ęg-gęd-ōsis’ especially hitting the tingle buttons.”
Ant Plate (Rhythm Plate / YSE) - “Like floating in an analogue sequenced space …”
DJ Rocca (Ajello) - “Amazing stuff!”
Alain Ho (DJ Yellow) - “Top work as always with Lindstrøm.”
Djuma Soundsystem - “Great production, which leaves no doubt of who still wears the nu-disco crown, bringing big expectations for the album. Hurra for Norge!”
Chrissy Murderbot - “This is BIG!”
OOFT! - “Classic Lindstrøm … top stuff.”
Thugfucker - “This is beautiful. Lindstrøm is the man, as if we didn’t know already.”
Ulysses (Neurotic Drum Band) - “Everything he touches turns to gold.”
DJ Sabo (Sol*Selectas) - “Quality stuff here … can’t wait to hear the whole album.”
Joshua Ferguson (Dialogue Inc.) - “While I dug moments of Six Cups of Rebel, the new Smalhans album is the return to form I was hoping for from Lindstrøm and his pairing with Todd Terje - even if just in a studio capacity - has only increased the potency here. Loving ‘Rà-àkõ-st,’ even if I can’t pronounce it.”
Iron Horse (Pawn Shop Records) - “This music gives me super powers.”
