Todd Terje shares new single ‘Maskindans’, teasing second album
Though he may still be tweaking the space laser to perfect album Numero Twomero (hey, it’s a working title), Todd Terje has still found the time to tease a sneak preview of what’s to come in the form of new single ‘Maskindans’ feat. Det Gylne Triangel.
With a minimal wave good-bye to the moodier moments of the original, Terje turns up the funk and gets lost in the groove on this deep discoid delight, including an unruly intro of malfunctioning sirens and squawking synths, ‘Maskindans’ morphs into a nasty new wave nodder, bursting with chorus bass, mutant guitar riffs and infectious 4/4. Remix duties fall to Phantasy man Erol Alkan, who replaces those dub disco flourishes with the strobe-lit pulse of Giallo, stripping the track back into a dark wired dancer which steals a beat on the imminent Electroclash revival.
Slip into your tin foil hat and do the ‘Maskindans’, it’s almost album time (not again!)
