28/12/2020: “Strandbar (Samba)” by Todd Terje

A four minute radio version of Strandbar appears on Todd Terje’s classic 2014 album, It’s Album Time.

You can find this extended Samba mix on the Strandbar EP released in 2013, complete with added Latin percussion and improved funkiness.

Like many Todd Terje bangers, the song slowly builds. About halfway, you’ll start to think ‘Crikey, this really slaps’. I did, anyway…

That piano riff is golden, but still sits as part of a richly constructed masterpiece, rhythmically brilliant and melodically stunning.
