Biography All Music Guide

All Music Guide:

Todd Terje, born Terje Olsen, arrived on the Scandinavian dance scene in 2004 and, in short order, became one of its prominent figures beside early supporter Prins Thomas and Hans-Peter Lindstrøm. Terje channeled a voracious appetite for several styles of music -- including dub, disco, synth pop, house, and techno -- into warmly received edits of tracks by the Bee Gees, Michael Jackson, and Santana. He also made a splash in 2005 with "Eurodans," one of his own productions, released on Thomas' Full Pupp label. By 2006, it was difficult to keep tabs on all of Terje's remix work, though the man's looks at Lindstrøm's "Another Station," Studio's "Life's a Beach!," Kaoru Inoue's "The Secret Field," and Dølle Jølle's "Balearic Incarnation" weren't easy to avoid in discerning DJ sets. On Remaster of the Universe, released on 2010 through Permanent Vacation, Terje served up a collection of his edits and remixes in the form of a continuous DJ mix. A year later, he released one of his most popular tracks, "Snooze 4 Love," on Gerd Janson's Running Back. His profile was raised outside of the dance music world through his co-writing of Robbie Williams' chart-topping single "Candy" in 2012 and his production of a couple songs on Franz Ferdinand's 2013 album Right Thoughts Right Words Right Action. He also produced and mixed fellow Norwegian Lindstrøm's 2012 album Smalhans, while prepping his long-overdue debut album. It's Album Time arrived in early 2014 on his own Olsen label.

What Todd Terje, Roxy Music and Grace Jones Have in Common

By Andy Beta, Contributor

[In each Six Degrees feature, we explore the sonic and spiritual connections behind one record. — Ed.] In the early 2000s, Norway experienced a musical renaissance of sorts, from the electro-confections of Annie to the groggy prog-disco of Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas. Somewhere between the two resides producer Terje Olsen, who hails from the small town of Mjøndalen and re-jiggered the name of New York house producer Todd Terry for his own nom de plume, Todd… more »

Who Is…Mux Mool

By Michelangelo Matos, Contributor

At New York's Cake Shop during the 2011 edition of the CMJ Music Marathon, Brian Lindgren - the Minneapolis-bred, Brooklyn-dwelling electronic musician Mux Mool - was bent low over a table with his sequencer, sampler and MacBook, explaining, "I don't usually look this awkward, I swear." But he didn't sound awkward in the least, because his set largely consisted of material from his then-forthcoming second album for Ghostly International, Planet High School. It's a big… more »
