Todd Terje & The Olsens
Revered Norwegian producer Todd Terje is touring Australian this December. Bringing his live band The Olsens to Australia for the very first time, Todd Terje & The Olsens will headline shows at Sydney’s Metro Theatre and Melbourne’s Forum Theatre, along with a headline set at Meredith Music Festival.
The tour follows the release of his latest single ‘Maskindans’, the first to be taken from his sophomore LP out on Olsen Records in 2018. ‘Maskindans’ is a body moving cover of a Norse Synth spectacular from the dystopian dance floors of ’82. It’s the first track to be taken from Terje’s long-awaited second album, and follows on from the acclaimed debut LP It’s Album Time! The 2014 release defined the Scandinavian disco sound and marked Terje as one of the most prominent producers of the last decade, featuring cult anthem ‘Inspector Norse‘, which was heralded by Mixmag as the Best Track Of The Year. The record was also recognised as one of The 100 Best Albums of the Decade So Far by Pitchfork.

“Featuring a robust range in pace, imagery, and vocal implementation, the record is the most eclectic and thought-out work from Olsen to date.” Consequence Of Sound
“It’s Album Time is, as advertised, his first full-length album. The title sets the tone: Casual, confident, and unburdened by the imagined need for significance that scares so many good dance producers into losing their cool when given a bigger platform.” Pitchfork (8.7/10)
“The production across 12 tracks is scintillating, the breadth of territory often surprising.” Sydney Morning Herald (4/5)
