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’s Beatservice single, “Shoreline,” accumulated numerous accolades and tens of thousands of plays on various streaming platforms.
This new Beatservice double A-side single opens with “On Tonight” which takes old school sounds and transports them to modern club sets. A funky bass bounce is complemented with squelchy synth lines and an atmospheric, submerged breakdown section. It’s all driven by an insistent rhythm track to keep the floor in motion. “Loading Music” introduces a shuffling breakbeat that anchors jazzy electric piano chords and more analog synth fun. The result is dreamy but propulsive, potentially inspiring introspective dance floor moments. Another winning single from Third Attempt!
