Review

Given his love of twinkling melodies, warm electronics, new age chords and shuffling analogue house rhythms, Norwegian-in-Berlin Telephones seems a neat fit with Gerd Janson's Running Back label. The Ocean Called EP certainly chimes with Janson's love of picturesque deep house and glassy-eyed Scandolearica. There's happily much to admire, from the chiming melodies and crystal clear textures of "Blaff" (which, incidentally, is accompanied by a great bonus rhythm track), to the glistening beauty of "Hot Destinations" and darting, life-affirming positivity of "Untitled (The Island)". Of course, none of this will come as a surprise to those who've been watching his career blossom over recent years, but this is still particularly potent. Arguably, it's his best release to date and features some fine sleeve art from Sex Tags DJ Fett Burger.
