Linnea Dale & Of Norway - High Hopes (Of Norway Versions) [Beatservice Records]

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.

The collaboration continues with “High Hopes.” a song from Linnea’s most recent album, remixed by Of Norway. The track has been a secret weapon in the hands of a select few DJs, now finally receiving a wide release through Beatservice Recordings. It’s a soaring affair, deftly merging Of Norway’s driving electronics with Linnea’s evocative vocals and lyrics. The full version is accompanied on this release by a sparser Dub and a radio/playlist-ready edited version. Dive deep into the underground club sound of Norway.
