Third Attempt is Torje Fagertun Spilde, a 20 year old artist and DJ originally from Asker, just outside of Oslo. Now established in Tromsø , Norway, he is one of the young forces in the rising new generation of electronic producers from the birthplace of the Northern Disco Groove.
Third Attempt has a distinct and uplifting flavor, firmly planted in the smoother areas of deep house. His influences range from jazz to ambient, trip hop to classic house. Third Attempt creates a fusion between pulsating electronic rhythms and his own field recordings to create atmospheric dreamscapes. Last year, he released his debut album Dreams In Common and the single "Hidden", both on his own label. Now releasing through Beatservice Records, Third Attempt is ready to branch out to the global massive.
The track "Shoreline" leads this latest single with chiming electric piano chords and spacey background sounds preceding crisp drums and a disco bass line. Beautiful pads and echoing synth arpeggiations join splashes of guitar and melodic variations to fill out this strong late night track. The b-side brings “Open Spaces,” a collaboration with fellow Tromsø producer Øystein Bolstad. Jazzy key riffs set a smokey lounge vibe as mid-tempo house rhythms, an elastic bass, and building layers of synths signal the approaching sunrise.
