Polaroid presents Todd Terje

  • Friday 7th November l Polaroid Presents… TODD TERJE Polaroid is back at our Wire home after being on the road of late and we have lined up a belter. Todd Terje makes up the holy trinity of Norwegian nu-disco producers along with his peers Prins Thomas and Hans-Peter Lindstrøm. Born Terje Olsen in Mjøndalen, a rural outpost in Norway he later moved to Oslo where he adopted the Todd Terje moniker in a sly nod to house pioneer Todd Terry. At 27 he has racked up more re-edits and re-works of old disco, house and pop tracks than you can shake a dusty 12” at. From Chic to Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon to Jose Gonzales, Terje has gained a reputation for putting an original dance floor spin on long forgotten gems. It’s not just his re-edits that have caught the ear; 2005’s ‘Eurodans’ was a soaring piece of blissful disco-house that put him on the map, his remix of Lindstrøm’s ‘Another Station’, an electronic masterpiece and this year’s huge rework of Simon Baker’s ‘Plastik’ with its overdubs of Eastern percussion and live elements hint at him maturing as a producer. Do not miss this rare chance to catch him play in our intimate space which we guarantee will be a treat… In support the Night Flight boys take time out from throwing the best parties in Dublin to get things started with a fusion of electronic disco and house. The guys have put on some exceptional parties this year with the likes of Joakim, Prins Thomas and Francois K, so they know a thing or two about good music. To complete this month’s line up, Bobby returns for his first Polaroid gig since his triumphant set at Bestival. You know where it’s at; see you on the dance floor… Friday 7th November Todd Terje (Full Püpp, Oslo) NightFlight (Button Factory, Dublin) +++ Bobby O’Donnell (Sunday Best/Bestival) Polaroid Soundsystem Wire 2 Call Lane, Leeds 11-5am £7/6 nus & members £5 guest list – email info at polaroidclub.co.uk www.polaroidclub.co.uk www.myspace.com/toddterje www.myspace.com/polaroidclub www.nightflightmusic.wordpress.com
