I love a good bit of Traditional Folk Music, however I tend to love it even more when approached in a Non-Traditional manner.
Sver is one of the musical minds for Norwegian ‘Folkhall‘ group, Snakka San & SVER and although I’m a massive fan of the group, I think as a DJ, in the very rare occasions I get to play a Folk heavy DJ set, I’d be more likely to spin an instrumental like this.
The Dancehall influence is a lot subtler here but I can still recognise a nod to it in the rhythm. Would love to hear it taken up a notch with a remix, it would work perfectly with my good friend Castro‘s revamp of Bellowhead‘s Dockside Rant that has never quite had the opportunity to see light of day anywhere.
Love the great Ski-Aerobics mash up video too! Grab a free download of the track from Sver’s Soundcloud.
