All Music Guide:
Beginning as a relatively unknown figure in the Norwegian dance underground, during a brief period of time Hans-Peter Lindstrøm experienced one of the most spectacular success stories of any Norwegian producer or artist. Starting his own label, Feedelity, in 2002, Lindstrøm released a series of highly acclaimed EPs and 12" singles over the next years, becoming an increasingly well-respected producer and remixer on the international club scene, both on his own as well as together with his longtime collaborator Prins Thomas. He remixed artists such as LCD Soundsystem and Franz Ferdinand, and his own 12" release I Feel Space gained a huge cult reputation among DJs all over the world. Lindstrøm's musical style is sometimes tagged space disco, while his somehow indefinable sound also has been explained as a result of him not really listening to dance music before he started to produce it himself. Coming from a rock and country background, Lindstrøm is said to have started making dance music simply to figure out how it was done. Together with Prins Thomas, Lindstrøm released the album Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas (Eskimo) in 2005, while his own long-awaited debut, It's a Feedelity Affair (Feedelity/Smalltown Supersound, 2006), fulfilled the huge expectations of music writers and fans, and became one of the most acclaimed releases within the club genre that year. The sprawling Where You Go I Go Too (its title track nearly half an hour in duration) followed on Smalltown Supersound in 2008 and landed on the year-end lists of several publications. The next year, he collaborated with vocalist Christabelle for Real Life Is No Cool, an album based on shorter, more song-oriented compositions that divided its intent between dancefloor and home listening. Six Cups of Rebel, a tense, experimental set, was released in early 2012 with the back to basics Smallhans following later that same year.
