One of Norway's most-admired DJ/musician/producer/label owner/remixers, Prins Thomas is perhaps best-known as a pioneer of "space disco", the bla bla bla combination of Balearic, dance, prog and Krautrock. Over the past decade, he's formed a formidable partnership with Hans Peter Lindstrøm, released music by the likes of Todd Terje on his Full Pupp label, DJ'd around the globe, remixed everyone from Holy Ghost! to Haim to Roxy Music and been a mainstay on blogosphere.

Way back in time, he started playing around as a DJ at a puerile age. Viewing it as an extension of his break-dancing efforts, Thomas began mixing hip hop, electro and the likes of Arthur Baker and Shep Pettibone. He then took up the bass and played in more bands than Norway has trees.

 

He joined forces with Lindstrøm in 2003. They both have backgrounds in different Norwegian band projects, ranging from punk to gospel to heavy metal to folk and psychedelia, but they also shared a passion for collecting records and run their own labels Feedelity, Full Pupp and Internasjonal.

Thomas just released his third solo album of original compositions; an album that gleams with the kind of knotty studio workouts that felt so effortless on his debut. There's the sense of Thomas simply enjoying himself in the studio for hours, compiling track after track of his extended, organic jams. As Thomas explains in the press release, there's "no space disco but plenty of space."

He’ll for sure take the Numusic crowd on a journey.
