About Todd Terje:
Underpinned by a string of celebrated releases and must-see live performances leaning on everything from kitschy lounge music to disco, deep funk and latin jazz, Todd Terje has over the past decade+ become something of a cult figure within and beyond dance music circuits.
Dubbed the "king of the summer jams" by Mixmag, listed at #17 in the Rolling Stone magazine list of "The 25 DJs That Rule the Earth" and lauded as "one-third of the Holy Trinity of Norwegian disco" by Spin magazine, Todd Terje first made his name with a string of remixes and edits in the mid-2000s that had the electronic music world anxiously anticipating the 2014 release of his debut album appropriately titled It's Album Time. Featuring favourites such as ‘Strandbar’ and iconic disco ‘Inspector Norse’, the album was widely celebrated by critics and earned a Best New Music nod from Pitchfork who wrote, "Terje is a careful artist that's fluent in history, an expert with texture, and possessing a grasp on composition more akin to a 1960s film composer than a contemporary dance producer."
Whether as a one-man DJ act or a live band, Terje went on to build a robust career as a live touring musician bouncing from clubs to performances at the prestigious Sonar festival in Barcelona which he headlined to performing at Coachella where he brought out Bryan Ferry for a rendition of their reimagined ‘Johnny and Mary’ cover of Robert Palmer's original. While his own output of new music has slowed in recent years, that could be changing soon.
