— Released 22nd June 2020 on Brainfeeder

Highly esteemed astral traveller and Norwegian king of the disco Prins Thomas remixes ‘Spiral Era’ from Jaga Jazzist’s forthcoming album “Pyramid”, out on 07 August via Brainfeeder. Truly a match made in heaven, Prins Thomas expertly elevates the eight-piece’s monstrous grooves skywards to the stars, conjuring a cosmic rework that unravels over a cool 11 mins and 17 secs.

Highly esteemed astral traveller and Norwegian king of the disco Prins Thomas remixes ‘Spiral Era’ from Jaga Jazzist’s forthcoming album “Pyramid”, out on 07 August via Brainfeeder. Truly a match made in heaven, Prins Thomas expertly elevates the eight-piece’s monstrous grooves skywards to the stars, conjuring a cosmic rework that unravels over a cool 11 mins and 17 secs.

"We love this version and it feels like a full circle since so much of the music on this album is inspired by the Norwegian music scene fronted by Prins Thomas, Lindström and Todd Terje,” says Lars from the band. 

On new album “Pyramid”, Jaga Jazzist take a deep dive into post-rock, jazz and psychedelia influences. It’s their first album since 2015’s “Starfire”, their ninth album in a career now spanning four decades, but it marks the group’s debut on Brainfeeder, the LA-based imprint curated by Flying Lotus. Nodding to forebears spanning from 80s jazz band Out To Lunch and Norwegian synth guru Ståle Storløkken, to contemporaries Tame Impala, Todd Terje and Jon Hopkins, each of the album’s four longform entries evolves over carefully plotted movements, the tracks’ technicolour threads dreamily unspooling.

The album title refers to the building blocks which make up a pyramid, and how each of the four tracks – and their constituent parts – fit together. Elsewhere on the record, ‘Tomita’ is a nod to Japanese composer and synth player Isao Tomita, and ‘The Shrine’ alludes to Fela Kuti’s legendary Lagos venue. Composer Lars Horntveth says: “I felt that this album is a small symphony, each part containing its own rooms to explore.”
