Todd Terje named Best New Music on Pitchfork

Todd Terje`s track Snooze 4 Love is named best new music by Pitchfork and here is what they say:

Norwegian producer Todd Terje makes dancefloor-oriented slabs of techno out of cheeky edits from unlikely sources. "Ragysh", the A-side to his new single on Running Back, liberally pairs strips of Detroit house with a bubbly beat that recalls Blondie's "Heart of Glass". But the real revelation here is "Snooze 4 Love", which ducks away from Terje's disco and Balearic roots and heads into full-on trance mode. It begins with a wispy ambience, barely audible synth pinging back and forth in the mix before the gorgeous slow build begins. Terje is in no hurry here-- "Snooze 4 Love" is eight minutes of pure blissed-out rapture, and he takes his time layering on each element until all the parts are feeding off each other in joyful communion. Terje knows exactly when to tinker and when to play it straight: He briefly strips away all the beats near the halfway point, allowing us to gaze into the daybreak synth tones and tangled-up samples at his disposal. As a breakdown it feels perfectly timed, as does the subsequent passage of bass-driven melancholia. The only flaw here comes when that final stretch winds down, as the eight-minute runtime never feels like enough.
