Scando-Nova: Future Sounds from the Scandinavian Underground.

Subtitled “Future Sounds From The Scandinavian Underground”, Scando-Nova
is compiled by DJs Bjorn Torske and Zak Frost. Torske hails from Bergen in
Norway, where he shares a studio with Royksopp, while the half-Swedish Frost
lives in Copenhagen, running his deepblueDK club night. Actually, rather than
being strictly futuristic, there's a great deal of nostalgia on show here,
whether for kinky-booted organ churns from the 60s or the plastic jump-suited
monophonic synthing of the early 80s. Ephemera's “Last Thing” doesn't take
long to assert its catchiness, flushed with fairground organ and cute harmony
choruses. Ben Horn's “Stripped Down” sets tight horns jetting across its
rolling bassline, while Olav Brekke Mathisen's “Take To The Sky” has gold
medallion soul vocals competing with a butterfly flute. When Royksopp's remix
of Anneli Drecker's “Sexy Love” hits, it underlines just how smooth all of
the preceding tracks have been. This is easily the best tune here, its pounding
beats scrunched up by splatter-sonics, gaspy vocals drooling lasciviously,
incorporating the sound of sawing wood, plus various squelchy noises given
rhythmic regularity. “Kinky People” closes up in spangled style, with
Malin's extended house floater establishing a return to some kind of
sanity. -Martin Longley
