A name that hardly needs an introduction in Oslo, Lente’s profile precedes him wherever he goes for sets that tap into the primal, something visceral, while at the same time planting your feet on the dance floor. A spiritual being who seems to want project all of his feelings through music, his mixes have been known to combine four-four arrangements with a “world” music sound pallette and in his edition of the Æmix he brings this to the fore again, this time in the recorded format.
From Indian Raga’s to west African drumming troupes, Lente travels the more exotic regions of the world, re-appropriating old musical languages in a new electronic music dialogue. The tempos are reserved, with plaintive melodies echoing around contrapuntal percussion in joyous reverie. Viscerally abundant and happily offbeat, Lente’s edition to the Jæger mix is charms on this Wednesday.
