Kohib - Solar Day
12" Vinyl


Solar Day


Released: 16th March 2018 | 4 track house ep

Kohib, AKA Øivind Sjøvoll from Sortland in the north of Norway, has been an important part of the club-scene in the town of Tromsø (the birthplace of the Northern Disco scene) since 1997, first as a DJ, later as a club organizer. In 2012, he started a string of dancefloor EP's, and the first one, Solar Day EP, had a fairly limited distribution outside Norway. So, here is finally a proper re-release! The Solar Day EP is a rousing four-tracker of superb dance tunes. The selection features prime examples of Norwegian electronic music ranging from nu-disco to slinky house music to downtempo electronica. So Good leads the pack with a high charged house music rhythm, fancy bursts of percussion and bass line pulsations, and the appealing vocals of Dagny (yes, that Dagny, of Backbeat, Wearing Nothing and Love You Like That fame) which beckon the listener to take off all your clothes and dance with me! This one's begging for immediate deployment on the dance floor. Kohib touches on more Italo-flavored grooviness with Don't Tease The Bumblebee which rides and glides like the flying insect in the title should. A bouncy low end and floating synths add to the cosmic romp. Escape Velocity lessens the tempo but fizzles with intriguing elements and melodies. Seemingly plucked synth lines and rolling, reverb-ed arpeggios evoke slow-motion bob-sledding across the Norwegian tundra. The set closes with the eponymous Solar Day, a mildly uplifting piece withdriving drums, buzzy, throbbing synth action, and more delicious Italo-inspired loveliness. This one builds to a stirring climax and closes the EP in grand style.

"So Good is balearic vibes that mixed with intergalactic Italo Disco ones, ecstatic, full of warm drumbeats and percussions. Midtempo ''Escape Velocity'' offers tha pure Nordic electronic sound, a look outside the window, to the white dressed landscape from the warm room. Pure Italo disco ''Don't Tease The Bumble Bee'' is another highlight on EP."

"Super-versatile EP - tracks for warm-up, lounge, or peak hour."
