Erlend Øye is one of those few musicians and vocalists that keeps me listening with every project he is in. From The Kings Of Convenience to solo projects, to collaborations, to The Whites Boy Alive, everything has that unique Øye twist and I hope to get more. Take a listen!
alright i guess the secret is out on this 2004 album. erlend oye is amazing and this album is pure gold from beginning to end. it's dance music with a norwegian twist - summery, refined, but playful. erlend somehow brings the best out of his collaborating DJs as they do their best work on kings of convenience tracks.
This must be my fav DJ-Kicks album. Very warm and mellow, ideal for warm summer evenings. The personality of Erlend Øye (of KOC fame) really seems to shine through. I truly can't pick a favourite track. Highly recommended.
Often it can be hard to understand the musical influences of your favorite artists. Enter "DJ Kicks," a series of DJ mixes from various artists on the independent !K7 Records. Here is Erlend Øye's feel-good and upbeat mix highlighting Cornelius, Fred Falke, Phoenix, and Ricardo Villalobos, among others. Love the first track, "So Weit Wie Noch Nie"
