Having only appeared as remixer for Skatebard's 2008 Cosmo's album; Njaal is a relatively unknown name. Hailing from Norway, the young producer debuts his solo single "Me & Hugh" on Untz Untz Records accompanied by remixes from Terje Bake and Skatebard. Njaal's original sits perfectly between warm, cosmic infused house and experimental electronica as menacing keyboards take over the high end and soft, hazy reverb clouds dominate the lower. Flip over and Terje Bake strips "Me & Hugh" down to a pounding kick drum from start to finish while Njaal's ambient beds simmer below. Skatebard keeps the hypnotic style of the original while pushing the drum beats up to their crisper capabilities.
