De Fantastiske To

Monokrom

Paper Recordings
Marius Sommerfeldt and Ravi Brunsvik are Norway's De Fantastiske To, or — as even a non-Norwegian speaker might surmise — the 'Fantastic Two'. Judging by this sterling four-tracker for veteran northern house-power powerhouse Paper Recordings, they are indeed capable of conjuring the fantastic. Title track 'Monokrom' features the odd-ball vocals of their countryman Ost, of Ost & Kjex fame. Weighed heavy with lurching swing and off-kilter stabs, it just pushes all the right buttons. Label boss Flash Atkins turns in a wonderfully wonky mix too, but this is all solid. Bravo.
