Review

A major global player in all things futuristic disco Prins Thomas Internasjonal imprint is further branching out and diversifying with its brand new spanking series INTERNASJONAL SPESIAL. the a-side sees the proven and tested multi-national team of Reykjavik born HOLMAR FILIPSON of Thugfucker and Crack & Speed fame and NY party veteran ULYSEES ( one half of Neurotic Drum Band ) pushing the agenda of joining the dots globally with the soon-to-be-classic emotive eletronic disco cut “Escape from New York". Starting out as a leisurely paced electro boogie cut with sentimental string chords, additional e-guitar loops and haunting synth noises leak in a dark 80’s pop sensibility a la My Bloody Valentine. Also the b-side by Valentinoland - Holmar Filipsson partnering this time with Arni runar Hlodversson of FM Belfast fame - is nothing short of truely exceptional but more on the dulcet side with a gut-wrenching string-lead melody in classic balearic sunset style.

INTSPE001 in the media

James Flavour (Dirt Crew): “dope sounds!”

Karotte (CocoonGreat Stuff): “like the filipsson & ulysses track. good one.”

Richard Carnes (Resident Advis: “Enjoying the Valentinoland cut on this - a proper Balearic groover with heavy drums, sweet synthesised strings and cascading pianos. Lovely. Filipsonn & Ulysses' effort is very much in that standard mid-tempo plodder vein, and as neither the synths or drums really shine through, it comes off sounding pretty mediocre. Will be keeping on the look out for Valentinoland in the future, however.”

Sasse (Moodmusic): “killer EP ! ”
