One of Norway's hottest young talents is Third Attempt. Paving the way for the next generation of Nordic producers, he is based in Oslo and has a relentless release schedule on Beatservice Records. His next offering is 'The Spirit' WP which is comprised of yet more perfectly produced, jazzy-funk- house that drops this coming week. We ask Third Attempt to talk us through some albums that have impacted his musical journey.
St Germain - Tourist
Timeless, genius blend of electronic music and jazz. Will never get tired of this one.
Floating Points – Shadows
Beautiful listening experience. Balancing on a thin thread between listening music and dance music. Which I always appreciate. The ambience, synthwork, Rhodes playing, drum machines play along perfect together. Making it a very special one.
Nu Genea – Nueva Napoli
Heard this LP playing in a record shop in Berlin. After the first minute I knew I had to pick it up. And it only became better from there. Solid, modern Italian disco. Saw these guys live and it was a spiritual experience.
Gramatik – Beatz and Pieces vol.1
MASTERCLASS in sampling. Additionally the elements, drum programming and bass is ace. Never play a downtempo set without including one of the tracks from here.
Billy Cobham – Stratus
Intense record. If your mindset is right the energy hits hard. This one I particularly love because of the grooves. Especially hitting from halfway. The foundations, themes are as strong as can be. Very fun to listen to. Stank face is imminent.
