Norway is burnin down.

Norway is on fire! For such a small country on the other side of the world i have been able to learn two things.

1: They import the best coffee in the world.

2: They write,produce and perform amazing music.

About maybe ten or fifteen years ago i found this little ten inch record (on Paper recordings i think) by a group aptly named 'Those Norwegians' and it was great and way ahead of its time. Four tracks of dirty groove driven tech houser's that never failed to disappoint on the dancefloor. Since then i keep coming across records from Norway that are simply amazing, acts like 'Mungolian Jetset and 'Skatbard' to name just a couple.Really ambitious stuff and from what i can gather really under rated. Here is a sample of sounds from those fjord laden shores.

Mungolian Jetset - Mush in the Bush

Skatbard - Way Out

Those Norwegians - Kakao (Original)

Ralph Myerz - My Dream Queen

Ciscoe - Elevators

Norway you gotta go!
