Todd Terje & The Olsens have announced The Big Cover-Up, out June 17th on Olsen Records. Appearing on record together for the first time, with Norway’s premier disco troop. Digging through their extensive collections of well-loved wax, Terje & the gang have specially selected a quartet of disco classics ripe for a remake. “The Big Cover-Up” and the Olsen crew have hit the studio with all guns blazing on this wild version excursion. Covers and remixes of killer disco deep cuts cover 4 sides on this 2×12″ set, including songs by Martin Denny/Yellow Magic Orchestra, Martin Circus, Boney M, and Vangelis, as well as remixes of those numbers by the likes of Daniel Maloso, Dan Tyler, Prins Thomas, and Øyvind Morken. It’s Maloso’s remix of “Baby Do You Wanna Bump” by Boney M that you can listen to today.
Also announced, is the inaugural “No Bad Days” show, which will be taking place at 1260 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn on July 29th. Joining Todd Terje & The Olsens will be Norwegian friends and collaborators Lindstrøm and Jaga Jazzist.
