Idioma disponible: inglésNorwegian producer Hans-Peter Lindstrøm is one of the key figures of the 21st century nu-disco scene, and particularly the revival of the space disco subgenre. His prolific output stretches beyond disco and electro influences, however, as he has branched into synth pop, art rock, and progressive electronic. Establishing his own label, Feedelity, in 2002, Lindstrøm released a series of highly acclaimed EPs and 12" singles over the next few years, becoming an increasingly well-respected producer and remixer on the international club scene, both on his own and together with his longtime collaborator Prins Thomas. He remixed artists such as LCD Soundsystem and Franz Ferdinand, and his own 12" release, 2005's scene-defining I Feel Space, gained a huge cult reputation among DJs all over the world. His album discography includes the supernatural prog-disco of 2008's Where You Go I Go Too, the sun-soaked dance-pop of 2009's Real Life Is No Cool (with Christabelle), and the cosmic club tracks of 2017's It's Alright Between Us as It Is. He has continued to work with Prins Thomas on remixes as well as original productions; their third full-length appeared in 2020. Coming from a rock and country background, Lindstrøm is said to have started making dance music simply to figure out how it was done. He began releasing music through his own Feedelity imprint in 2003, including an Untitled EP and the single "Music (In My Mind)" with singer Christabelle. Together with Prins Thomas, Lindstrøm released the album Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas (Eskimo) in 2005, while It's a Feedelity Affair, a 2006 compilation of tracks from his early singles and EPs, became one of the most acclaimed releases within the club genre that year. The sprawling Where You Go I Go Too (its title track nearly half-an-hour in duration) followed on Smalltown Supersound in 2008 and landed on the year-end lists of several publications. The next year, Lindstrøm released a 42-minute rendition of Little Drummer Boy for the holiday season. He also produced Real Life Is No Cool, a full-length with Christabelle that divided its intent between the dancefloor and home listening. Six Cups of Rebel, a tense, experimental set, was released in early 2012, with the back-to-basics Smalhans following later that same year. Lindstrøm collaborated with Todd Terje and Maya Vik on 12" releases that arrived prior to the 2015 full-length Runddans, a 12-part piece recorded with whimsical rock maverick Todd Rundgren and Serena-Maneesh's Emil Nikolaisen. Lindstrøm returned to dancefloor-oriented tracks with 2016's Windings EP, which was led by the single "Closing Shot." The producer's fifth solo album, It's Alright Between Us as It Is, arrived in 2017, and featured collaborations with vocalists Jenny Hval, Grace Hall, and Frida Sundemo. On a Clear Day I Can See You Forever, an improv-heavy set of ambient pieces performed on several vintage synths, was issued in 2019. Live at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter was digitally released in 2020. Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas continued to collaborate remotely, and their full-length III appeared in November.
