It’s Friday! It’s time for the weekend! So why not kick back with a new video from Norwegian house and disco DJ, singer/songwriter and producer Todd Terje, aka the musical mastermind behind 2014 masterpiece and his debut ‘It’s Album Time’. The man clearly has a sense of humour, well illustrated in the animated promo for ‘Alfonso Muskedunder’, including a whole cast of drawn characters – some human, some not, but all quirky – ‘singing’ along with the melody. Watch the unique video from Terje below.

Preview: Flow Festival 2015

Florence and Machine, Major Lazer and alt-J are among the first acts confirmed for Flow Festival 2015.

Held in Finland’s capital Helsinki, the 12th Flow Festival will take place between 14-16 August 2015 and is set to showcase a range of local and international talent. Other artists confirmed for the 3-day festival include Flying Lotus, Todd Terje, Run the Jewels, Future Islands and Foxygen.

Headliner Florence and the Machine are currently in the studio recording the follow-up to the critically acclaimed album ‘Ceremonials’. In addition to Flow Festival, the indie rock band are also set to headline Oya Festival in Norway, as well as making appearances at Hurricane (Germany) and Rock Werchter (Belgium). Florence and the Machine has yet to announce any UK dates for 2015 (at the time of writing, at least).

Major Lazer is the dancehall electro project from American producer Diplo. Their hits include ‘Get Free’ (ft. Amber Coffman), ‘All My Love’ (ft. Ariana Grande) and ‘Pon De Floor’ (which was famously sampled by Beyonce in ‘Run The World (Girls)’).

Meanwhile, alt-J, who received the prestigious Mercury Prize in 2012 with their album ‘An Awesome Wave’, are set to perform in Finland for the first time. The indie rockers recently announced that they would be performing at New York’s 18,200 capacity Madison Square Garden in March 2015.

Flow Festival takes place at the disused Suvilahti power station, which is just a short walk from the centre of Helsinki. Last year, the festival attracted over 60,000 people, with over 150 artists performing. Such acts included the likes of Of Monsters and Men, Kendrick Lamar and Disclosure.

Tickets for Flow Festival 2015 are on sale now, and cost €159 (approximately £130) for the three days. Further artists are expected to be added to the line-up in early 2015. You can find out more about Flow Festival on the official Web site.

What do you do if Norwegian house and disco DJ, singer/songwriter and producer Todd Terje approaches you and wants to make a video with your Delorean? Take advantage of the situation and make them film an advertisement for you when you want to sell it, of course.

It was win-win for all, as Terje wanted the car made iconic by the Back to the Future film franchise to appear in a promo for his song ‘Delorean Dynamite’. However, I don’t know if Frank, the fellow Norwegian, realised he would become famous in the making of this promo. Hope he’s not suffering too much from the fallout of becoming an instant celebrity. Watch it below.

Producers are supposed to work behind the scenes and we never see them, and that’s all fine and dandy, right? Well, that used to be the case with Todd Terje, the famed Norwegian house and disco DJ, singer/songwriter and producer. Not anymore. Just last week, he released his debut album called funnily enough ‘It’s Album Time’, in which he’s now the star, front and centre. There’s a childlike whimsy to songs such as ‘Leisure Suit Preben’, the promo video that was released late last week, and it’s kind of nice to listen to something entirely unpretentious and just 100% fun for a change. (I mean, seriously, who wouldn’t laugh and enjoy a song called ‘Inspector Norse’?) Watch the video below.

You can get Terje’s album ‘It’s Album Time’ from Olsen Records now.
