Oslo-based duo Of Norway — comprised of Vegard Wolf Dyvik and Christian Steenstrup — have made a name for themselves through countless DJ and live gigs and a healthy discography on the esteemed Connaisseur Recordings. And Linnea Dale is a rising Norwegian singer, known as a popular contestant on Idol Norway before releasing a pair of solo albums on Warner Music Norway. Linnea has guested as vocalist on Of Norway’s recordings.
Linnea has a new album released in November 2018, and it’s an opportunity to work again with the talented production duo Of Norway. The previous collaboration, Of Norway’s remix of Linnea’s “High Hopes,” created waves when it came out last May. This new song, “Wait For The Morning,” also gets the Of Norway treatment with similarly spectacular results. The remix is built around a dark techno throb, heavy on the low end and sonically inviting. The entry of Linnea’s vocal comes as a ray of sunshine in the track, illuminating the production as deep and evocative. A steady build and a rising arpeggiated synth line further cement this tune as an after-hours DJ staple. An instrumental and a radio edit are also included.
Eelke Kleijn (DAYS like NIGHTS) – “Vocal version is excellent!”
DJ H4L 9000 (Excuse Me? Club) – “Epic instrumental version.”
Ulysses (Neurotic Drum Band) – “Vegard always does a top-notch job.”
Sumsuch (Colour and Pitch) – “Stunning! Support is a no-brainer.”
Marco Valvekens (Trendy FM) – “More like this please!”
Sasha (Last Night On Earth) – “Of Norway always deliver.”
Harry Avers (NOICE! Radio show) – “The full version is absolutely stunning.”
Duserock (Duserock) – “This is great!”
Indy Lopez (D&S) – “Wow! I can only say I LOVE it.”
DJ Nova (Rodon FM 95) – “Impressive follow up to ‘’High hopes’’. These deeper Of Norway versions are offering a mysterious lightless journey into further reaches of deep house where elements of synth-laden deep techno and semi-trance surround you. Industrial rhythms merge to form a harmonious whole after Linnea’s vocals.”
