Will he be the new success export from Norway after Röyksopp? So we believe, and we signed this super talented guy living outside Oslo. Instantly, we heard, after listening to the demos he sent in, that this guy has a unique sound. He’s very influenced by those old Latin classics. He combines Latin, jazz, Bossa and house in a splendid way, and we just love it. We have licensed a various of his tracks to other labels such as Naked Music & Tru Method.
Next Spring we will release his debut album, but here we present his first E.P.
And she said – This track will almost be suitable for every occasion, deep tech set if you’re brave enough also great for a futuristic soundtrack. Dark, percussive, great melodic hook and off beat in a new way. We’ve never heard a track like this before.
Beats she said – Cool beats of “And she said”
Cruz persille – Starts off in a deep relaxed way and then the bass kicks in and gets it groovier. groovy. Later on, the percussive parts make this track happen. And if that’s not enough, check out these fantastic disco strings lurking in. A fantastic piece of music!
Repetiveness – Laidback bossa feeling, funky bass together with a great percussive groove. You’ll certainly get an after beach feeling.

Man the Scandanavians are picking up where the germans left off and are delivering on all musical levels. "And she said" is the percussive off beat track with a great melody. Check it.
Belting away at a fair old tempo, this debut EP from the much licensed - Imperial Dub, etc - Dalminjo mixes Latin influences with a crisp and clinical, but warm, bit of tech-house. You might not think that sounds particularly exciting, and you'd be right. But opener 'And She Said' is pleasant and well made and deserves to kick off techy sets or end Gilles Peterson's. The bonus tracks are deeper, slower and soulful but they might be a bit grown up for people who still get excited about dancing all night (ie, us lot). 3/5
