Viking power! This Norwegian duo of producer/DJ Snorre Sneim and multi-instrumentalist Oyvind Jacobson has been conquering dancefloors around the world with a string of releases for labels like Guidance and remixes for Kyoto Jazz Massive. On their first full-length, the pair truly shines, with impeccable instrumentation and tasty collaborations with vocalists including Maiya James. Sporting broken beats that sparkle with incredibly tight programming (check the brush work on ìHustle on the Vessel‘ or the Afrobeat breaks on ìKongo Mongo‘) and jazz interludes that never feel forced, Butti 49 serve up a classy debut from the land of horned hats.
