BS058 Athome Project: A Feeling Of Care
Stian Jacobsen er mest kjent som hovedmannen i Athome Project. Men han har ogs� en litt mindre kjent oppgave: n�r hans gode venner Svein og Torbj�rn aka R�yksopp har tr�bbel med datamaskinene sine, s� er det Stian de ringer. For � gjengjelde utallige hardware og software tr�bbel-fiksing, har R�yksopp levert en remix av en av de mest fremtredende l�tene p� Athome Project sitt selv-titulerte album; A Feeling Of Care.

Det tok nesten et halvt �r i R�yksopp sitt pressede program � f� den ferdig, men den var vel verdt � vente p�! Resultatet er nemlig en nesten 17 minutter tredelt konseptuell sak med tittel "tre n�tter til r�yksopp", inspirert av den Tsjekkiske julefilmen "Tre n�tter til Askepott" (siden remixen ble levert i jula).

Originalversjonen av A Feeling Of Care er en soulfull og funky sak med Caitlin Simpson's framtredende vokal. Men tradisjonen tro har R�yksopp plukket l�ten fullstendig fra hverandre og bygd opp en helt ny l�t. Eller rettere sagt tre nye l�ter. F�rste n�tt (mer (100 km/t) er en fengende electro-funk-l�t, andre n�tt (salt (MS-20)) er en hypnotisk og hard progressiv house-l�t, mens tredje og siste n�tt (hav (rus)) er en litt mere ned-dempet, men fortsatt ganske funky electronica sak. Tre n�tter for enhver smak med andre ord!

P� b-sida f�r vi originalversjonen fra albumet, samt nok en vennetjeneste, Athome Project remixet i fjor sommer en l�t fra danske Universal Funk, og i retur har han f�tt en "afro lounge" remix av The Spy, en fin og jazza bossa-miks.

Stian Jacobsen is the man behind Athome Project. But he also has a lesser known mission: when his good friends Svein and Torbj�rn aka R�yksopp have trouble with their computers, Stian is their man. To return numerous favours of hardware and software troublefixing, R�yksopp have delivered a remix of one of the key tracks from Athome Project's self titled debut album; A Feeling Of Care.

It took almost half a year in the rather packed schedule for R�yksopp to finish the remix, but it was well worth the wait! The result is no less than an almost 17 minutes three-part conceptual thing with the title "tre n�tter til r�yksopp", inspired by the Czech Christmas movie from the 70's "Three nuts for Cinderella", a movie that is shown every Christmas on Norwegian television - and the remix was finished and delivered in the Christmas.

The original version of A Feeling Of Care is a soulful and funky track with Caitlin Simpson's distinct vocal works. But true to their tradition of remixing, R�yksopp have picked the track into pieces, and built a complete new track. Or rather, three new tracks. The first nut (mer (100 km/t) is a irresistible electrofunk track, the second nut (salt (MS-20)) is a hypnotic and hard progressive house track, while the third and final nut (hav (rus)) is a bit more gentle, but still rather funky electronica track. Three nuts for every taste, in other words!

On the b-side we get the original album version, plus another friendly favour. Athome Project remixed a track from the Danish Universal Funk last summer, and in return, he got their "afro lounge" remix of The Spy, cool and jazzy bossa-mix.

Keep On (UK), Interloop (USA)
Media darlings and Norwegian masters of a variety of soundscapes, R�yksopp,turn in a mind-bending epic 3-part reinterpretation of "A Feeling OfCare", while Universal Funk reworks "The Spy" with stunningresults. The 1st part of R�yksopp's mix "Mer (100 km/t)" keeps thebreakbeat infected vibe of the original, as emphatic straight lacedpercussion, a bug eyed analogue heavy bass, and perfected bliss stings combine.Part 2 "Salt (MS20)" is an anxious parnaoia gripped technified key ledcut, with a pummeling bass backing. While "Hav (Rus)", the third partis an atmospheric drenced compassionate string led piece with stoned beats,dreamed exploratory keys and a crawling bass. Universal Funk's "Afro LoungeMix"of "The Spy" is an assured jazzed beauty where gorge lavishkeys, utopian vocals and tingling strings combine wonderfully.

Bergen nov�m Bristolom?

Nie je to tak d�vno, čo sa bristolsk� sc�na stala povinnou v�bavou vari ka�d�ho milovn�ka modernej pop-music. Spočiatku pritom i�lo určite viac o music ne� pop, a kto bol od počiatku pri tom, smelo sa dnes m�e pova�ovať za jasnozriv�ho a odv�neho. Sign�ly z n�rskeho Bergenu vyvol�vaj� pocit d�ja vu. Navy�e spriaznenosť jednotliv�ch akt�rov je v nordickom pr�pade podmienen� nielen spoločn�m �ivotn�m priestorom, ale aj dlhoročn�m priateľstvom. Bud� R�yksopp, Ralph Myerz, Bjorn Torske alebo Athome Project nov�mi Massive Attack, Portishead či Reprazent? 
Zo zemepisn�ho hľadiska maj� N�ri predsa len ist� handicap. Angličanom sa v muzike viac ver�, anglick� posluch�či, d�kladne mas�rovan� komerčn�mi aj alternat�vnymi m�diami, m�ňaj� na hudbu zo v�etk�ch n�rodov najviac, čo je v konečnom d�sledku blahod�rne pre lok�lnu sc�nu. Severania si �krtn� a� vtedy, keď ich pre svet objav� niekto z Angličanov. Novin�r, DJ alebo rovno muzikant. �no, mo�no to znie neuveriteľne, ale s� popov� muzikanti, ktor� � nech u� z ak�chkoľvek pohn�tok � fandia undergroundu a propaguj� nov� men� aj s rizikom, �e posluch�č jedn�ho dňa ocen� viac nezn�meho nov�čika ako svoj star� idol.
Athome Project je kapelou jedn�ho mu�a, 27-ročn�ho multiin�trumentalistu Stiana Jacobsena. �ije na Sforde, malom ostrove neďaleko Bergenu, Na konte m� 5 maxisinglov a kamar�ti sa s R�yksopp. T�m je povedan� mnoh� � aj on ľ�bi a produkuje melodick� elektronick� tracky, presahuj�ce hranice ��nru smerom k funku a jazzu. Jednoducho povedan�: ak �liape slu�n� groove, koho by zauj�mali tak� podru�nosti ako �katuľky? Eponymick� albumov� debut tvoria spolovice in�trument�lne a spolovice vok�lne nahr�vky. Medzi najvydarenej�ie in�trument�lky patr� Analogue Acoustics. Ako u� n�zov trochu napoved�, ide o čosi ako drum and jazz, či�e v podstate jungle s kontrabasom a saxof�nom. Čosi podobn� nie je cudzie ani Reprazent alebo Benovi Humanovi. Athome nar�ba �ikovne s atmosf�rick�mi kl�vesmi, rozličn�mi pazvukmi a tekut�mi harm�niami, obvykle nad sol�dnym dubov�m z�kladom. Everything Changes je dobr�m pr�kladom toho, ako by čisto teoreticky mohol znieť Jarr�, nebyť diagn�z typu g�č a megalom�nia. 
Spev patr� Kanaďanke Cailtin Simpson a v�raznej�ie nevybočuje zo �tandardn�ho soul-jazzov�ho prejavu. Je zdravo dramatick� a� temn� a ťa���m k�skom dod�va ist� popov� flair. Do hitpar�d sa v�ak za ka�d� cenu netisne, čo potvrdzuje skoro samovra�edn� 17-min�tov� (!) trojdielny remix singla The Spy od inak čoraz popul�rnej��ch R�yksopp. Čisto teoreticky je v�ak mo�n�, �e pr�ve ten sa na na�ich a česk�ch diskot�kach ujme. R�yksopp toti� uv�dzaj�, �e sa pri remixovan� nechali in�pirovať, citujem, by the Czech 70�s movie �Three nuts for Cinderella�. Konečne niekto ocen� okrem K�jovho bo�sk�ho tenoru aj Jur�kovo erd�anie a Tajtrl�kovo brechanie?

SME Kult�ra
Beatservice je n�rske vydavateľstvo orientovan� na downtempo, ambient a elektronick� hudbu, ktor�ho nahr�vky u� mo�no k�piť aj na na�om trhu. Album Athome Project je debutom 27-ročn�ho Stiana Jacobsena, vystupuj�ceho pod pseudonymom Mr. Athome, ktor� sa doteraz objavoval predov�etk�m na r�znych sampleroch. N�padit� multiin�trumentalista sa hudbe naplno začal venovať, keď pre zdravotn� probl�my musel zanechať manu�lnu pr�cu. K�m v mestečku Troms� sa dar� ambientu, Bergen je domovom projektov odv�nej�ie laden�ho elektronick�ho popu.
Okrem zn�mej skupiny R�yksopp odtiaľ poch�dza aj Mr. Athome. Jeho nahr�vka stoj� predov�etk�m na duniv�ch rytmick�ch beatoch, nad ktor�mi znej� melancholick� zvuky syntetiz�torov. Chladn� zvuky v niekoľk�ch skladb�ch poľud�ťuje hlas spev�čky Caitlin Simpsonovej. (her)
