I Feel Space

January 15, 2010

In a rare moment of national pride, here is the only Norwegian song that made it into the top 500 Pitchfork’s Best Songs of the Decade (#112). It’s a corker! Plus, a bonus, more recent Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas offering. You’re welcome!

Hans-Peter Lindstrøm certainly wasn’t the first artist to re-imagine Giorgio Moroder and Donna Summer’s classic Italo-disco prototype “I Feel Love”, but he arguably did it best. Indeed, the Norwegian producer’s “I Feel Space” sounds not unlike Moroder launched into outer orbit, its arpeggiated synths and thumping bass so bouncy they could have been recorded in zero gravity. The high-water mark for what became known as space disco? Sure. But “I Feel Space” is an even simpler victory: The employment of traditional music-making expertise– check the sweeping chord changes and perfectly timed handclaps– in the creation of one flawless dance track. –Joe Colly
