Feel The Hand Of Todd - July 16th

Feel the hand of Todd

Touch the Stache of Wade

Hold on to your Tango Terje

This is a long time coming for us, watching, waiting, youtubing, googling for glimpses and sounds of the myth that is the Norseman Terje.

Years ago, via soulseek or some other relic of the internet that isn't worth remembering, we first stumbled across his comme de moodymann edit of CHIC's 'I want your love'. Using Yahoo? or maybe it was Ask Jeeves? we dug up all we could on the Terje, he had remixed another bearded Norwegian 'Lindstrom' and had the aptly named and incredibly catchy 'Italian Stallion' coming out on Full Pupp.

Years went by, leaking brilliant live DJ mixes from castles in scottland and over 100 edits of songs from every genre yet known to exist, and his norse mythos continued to grow. His reputation established him as one of the most respected and fun loving DJ's traveling the globe.

We even received a text from a family member in Australia last year that simply read 'Life haz bean altered 4 evar moore' (sorry- no translation, i can't read australian) after attending a tango terje helmed party.

It all culminated in this years incredibly original 'Snooze 4 Love' EP for Running Back, which finally ushered in the chance for him to tour North America properly.

No press release could really sum up the wild taste and variety he brings to his DJ sets.

Suffice to say- On July 16th- He will Play, You will Dance, We will Party

I'm flying from Edmonton to come see Todd Terje been waiting years to see him, i tried to get him to play my wedding but he was too expensive.

Wow you brought lovefinger and Woolfy?? you people know exaclty exactly what you are doing. I can connect you with people in Edmonton if you'd like to do a show here... the problem with Canada is that I'm not sure people here know who these artists are.
