- The five anniversary EPs feature exclusives from the Norwegian producers like Bjørn Torske, DJ Fett Burger and Skatebård.
Prins Thomas' Full Pupp will mark 15 years with five various artists EPs.
While the Norwegian mainstay has a hand in a number of labels—such as Internasjonal, Rett i Fletta and Horisontal Mambo—with Full Pupp he focuses on Norwegian artists. The five-part compilation, which will be released in instalments starting this month, includes the likes of Doc L Junior, DJ Fett Burger, Skatebård, Mental Overdrive, Telephones and Bjørn Torske, to name a few.
"For the compilation I sent out invitations to not only previously contributing artists but also some new names and friends that I've wanted to release for a while," Thomas told RA. "I finally got a track from Bjørn Torske after the initial invite more than 15 years ago."
We also asked the Full Pupp boss how Norway, a country of five-and-half million people whose largest city, Oslo, holds 700,000, has been able to consistently produce internationally-lauded talent.
"I believe that the lack of a proper 'electronic music' industry here during the '90s and '00s means the music got off to a good start and evolved in a natural way based on individual wants and needs rather than living up to a legacy," he said. "With Full Pupp it's pretty much been a family affair most of the way with older artists introducing us to new and as we're a small country, if you don't know someone then you'll certainly know someone that does."
All of the EPs will come on 12-inch and digital except for FPXX15, which will come out exclusively on digital September 15th. For full details check out the tracklists and release dates below.
