Pseudonyms can be confusing. Boys Noize is just one dude, Bonaparte are a whole band that has nothing to do with Napoleon, and Lemâitre (themaster in French) is not just one guy, but two dudes. Crazy. What’s crazier (slightly) is that the word master is spelled maître in French and not mâitre as you might see it on their Facebook for instance.
Nevermind all that though, because the music Ketil & Ulrik, the two Norwegians producers make is just brilliant. They call themselves an indie-electronic duo, which is fair enough, since they appear to be singing on some of their tracks. The rest of the time, you might confuse them for Daft Punk or one of those artists kids rave about these days, like MGMT or Phoenix. But better, because they’re not super famous (yet).
Their new EP, Relativity 3, which follows Relativity 2 and Relativity 1 (all these years studying math finally paid off!) came out some hours ago and it’s as good as the last two. It’s available for streaming on Soundcloud over here. After listening to it a few times though, here’s my favorite song from the EP, Iron Pyrite (the chorus at 1:30 is just so delicious it’s crazy):
And if that got you interested, I strongly suggest you go and listen to Relativity 2, because it’s still awesome and available on Soundcloud:
Also take a minute to listen to the Uppermost remix of the song Appreciate at the end of the Relativity 2 EP, especially if you’re into slightly more powerful house music. And it’s on free download! As a friend of mine used to say, who doesn’t love free stuff?
