Have you ever tried looking for the ‘fizbalearic caramba dub disco’ section in a record shop? Ever found it? Well, after this release it shouldn’t be a problem, because the lean mean remix machine of the north is finally compiling his finest work on this two-disc compilation. And just to be a nice chap he also re-made half of his catalogue as a bonus. Just for you! “Remaster Of The Universe” contains his best remixes, his worst re-edits, half a dozen exclusive re-remixes plus more. Cz-cz-czech it out!

Following a string of celebrated releases leaning on everything from kitschy euro sounds to dub disco and psychedelic house, Todd Terje made his mark within dance music circuits. Gems such as the cheese anthem “Eurodans” and the latin disco fuelled edit of Jacko’s “Can’t Help It” under his Tangoterje edit-moniker instantly made industry types and clubbers alike go bananas, and made him to everybodys darling from Gilles Peterson to Pete Tong.

Training to become a pianist Terje enrolled at a local music school, but to his disappointment there wasn’t much jazz being taught there. Gradually leaving the musical career path, he later moved on to study physics at the University of Oslo. Although not longer aspiring to become a pianist, he was by no means over music. Growing up in the rural village of Mjøndalen, dance music influences were scarce, and no, there was never any ‘diskoklubb’ there. Not a lot of obscure disco or acid house in his milk either. However, during the early/mid-nineties dance culture sneaked its way into even the most remote parts of Norway, thanks to the popularity of acts like The Prodigy and national radio stations filling prime time slots with underground jocks Olle Abstract and Pål ‘Strangefruit’ Nyhus from Mungolian Jetset. On the more personal level, Terje’s sister was a close friend of the late Tore ‘Erot’ Kroknes, who was famous for his releases on Telle records and his production for his girlfriend Annie on the classic disco pop single “The Greatest Hit”. The tapes his sister brought home from Erot became a major source of inspiration for young Terje. Playing around in his early teens on a crap PC together with his mate Dølle Jølle (check out his remix for him on this cd), Terje made his first attempts in house and jungle (!), which they played from cassette tapes on junior high school-dances (!!). Maybe too young for old music back then, Terje reckoned that disco was all a bit silly – until Bjørn Torske’s “Sexy Disco” caught his ears in 1999 and inflamed his love for the disco sound. Little by little he got sucked into the world of dusty record shops and cheesy disco.

In 2001 Terje got in touch with Prins Thomas, who was at the time working at HS Records in Oslo. Thomas soon recognized his potential, and helped pushing Terje in the right directions. Oslo is a small place where like-minded folks tend to join forces, so it didn’t take long before Terje also was introduced to Hans-Peter Lindstrøm. This mighty trinity of disco vikings from now on worked on their very own vision of Balearic disco to spread over the world which produced so many epigons and clones, but was almost never reached.
