REVIEW: Gundelach - Fjernsynet out on Cosmos

Early support by Pete Tong, Carl Craig, Claude Vonstroke, John Digweed, Nicole Moudaber, Gorgon City, Dennis Ferrer, Claptone, Wankelmut

Ever since Norwegian mystery man Gundelach debuted in late 2015 with his singe “Spiders”, he has quietly been making waves. In the Nordics it was a radio hit, and landed him festivals slots on some of this coming summer’s biggest stages like Øya, Roskilde and more. Internationally, it was #1 on Hype Machine, picked by Pharrell for his Beats1 show and garnered millions of streams.

His new single ”Fjernsynet” (Norwegian for television set) is poised to lift him to new heights with its cooly delivered falsetto over a driving rhythm accentuated by beautiful analogelectronic production. It’s a broody, melancholic and catchy anthem for driving late at night The single is co-produced by Joel Ford (of Ford & Lopatin and Young Ejecta, who has also produced the likes of Autre Ne Veut, Oneohtrix Point Never and featured on Cyril Hahn and Com Truise tracks).

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Magnificent original version by Gundelach that all the possibilities to reach high at the charts and become a summer essential radio anthem. Great relaxing grooves and sunkissed guitar riffs along with the stunning vocals that stay in your head and you can not forget them for sure. The remixes are raising the bar even higher with Fur Coat going towards the deep electronic melodic house direction with deep pulsating basslines, rolling grooves, electronic themes and superb spacey futuristic atmosphere. Formation remix moves on the nu disco/tribal house direction with superb tribal grooves and even cool tropical touches along with nu disco basslines that make the difference. It's highly recommended. #PureGold Love it[/content]
