Our neighbours in Norway have been reigning the balearic disco scene for a few years now, almost to the point where you’d expect nothing else coming out of the fair country. Dubby disco edit master Rune Lindbaek might not be the most famous of the bunch, although he’s worked with pretty much everyone in the scene, but he sure packs a mean punch with this remix which sees that excellent The Knife track “Heartbeats” catapulted into a dancefloor stormer. The way Rune works in some more of those steel drums, a sweet shuffling bassline and simple yet effective handclaps makes our hearts beat a little faster and breathes new life into this, in mp3-blog time, ancient track.
Rune is currently working on an album called “Desire Lines” with the Idjut Boys which will be released on Smalltown Supersound sometime in october/november. The first 12″ from the album will drop shortly.
