Boomkat Product Review:
Finding a fitting home on Prins Thomas' Full Pupp label, Nordic disco experts Jarle Brathen and Marius Vareid arrive with a second EP. The original mix of 'Afterski' reaches beyond the realms of cosmic disco cliché, sounding far more contemporary than the usual retro workouts. All the necessary components are in check, from florid strings to pulsing, acid house-influenced basslines, but there's a freshness to the track that negotiates its way around any conceptions of kitsch. The Magnus International remix sticks closely to the same sort of formula, although strips away some of the melodic detail, making for a slightly more rugged finish.
