|When Prins Thomas was asked the question “what is the most desirable signing if money grew on trees?” by Fact Magazine, his answer was; “if I could lure him out of his cave for a second I wouldn't mind getting some new stuff from Bjorn Torske”|
And now; Bjorn Torske is finally out of the cave with a brand new album titled “Feil Knapp”! This is his first album since “Trobbel” in 2001 (on Telle Records). In many ways “Feil Knapp” (Norwegian for wrong button) represents a sound that sits somewhere in between “Trobbel”, 1999`s seminal “Nedi Myra” on Ferox and his underground cult hit “Soppelmann” on Svek. With influences ranging everything from Count Ossie and The Residents via 22 Skidoo to Idut Boys, Torske has created his very own and characteristic signature sound, a unique blend of warm and melancholic house, quirky avant-disco, leftfield electronica and dark, heavy psychedelic dub. In other words; this album has everything that we have learnt to love Bjorn for. Weirdly melodic and wonderfully groovy.
