Syncopated hats, snapping bass-lines, larger than life string arrangements and an energy you can almost touch; it must be the sound of Disco, and selected by one of Oslo’s staunches admirers of the genre, Rulefinn. The Oslo DJ takes us back to the early seventies, to a time before Abba and the Bee Gees, when Disco was still the proclivity of a rough and ready big band and it was still funky. Away from the sequence, the cheese and the sickening commercialism, Disco was a high energy music made by brilliant musicians especially for the dance floor.
Rulefinn highlights the fundamental building blocks of Disco from the origins of the genre with unmovable four to floor kicks, expressive vocals, and overblown arrangements coalescing around a raw energy. He tames them where he can, reigning them into a mix with the experience of lifelong commitment and an impeccable knowledge his selections. Infectious and intense, it is none other than the sound of Disco as it was always intended and mixed by an experienced hand.
Give us an introduction.
