BS058 Athome Project: A Feeling Of Care
Stian Jacobsen er mest kjent som hovedmannen i Athome Project. Men han har ogsĺ en litt mindre kjent oppgave: nĺr hans gode venner Svein og Torbjřrn aka Röyksopp har trřbbel med datamaskinene sine, sĺ er det Stian de ringer. For ĺ gjengjelde utallige hardware og software trřbbel-fiksing, har Röyksopp levert en remix av en av de mest fremtredende lĺtene pĺ Athome Project sitt selv-titulerte album; A Feeling Of Care.

Det tok nesten et halvt ĺr i Röyksopp sitt pressede program ĺ fĺ den ferdig, men den var vel verdt ĺ vente pĺ! Resultatet er nemlig en nesten 17 minutter tredelt konseptuell sak med tittel "tre nřtter til röyksopp", inspirert av den Tsjekkiske julefilmen "Tre nřtter 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 Röyksopp plukket lĺten fullstendig fra hverandre og bygd opp en helt ny lĺt. Eller rettere sagt tre nye lĺter. Fřrste nřtt (mer (100 km/t) er en fengende electro-funk-lĺt, andre nřtt (salt (MS-20)) er en hypnotisk og hard progressiv house-lĺt, mens tredje og siste nřtt (hav (rus)) er en litt mere ned-dempet, men fortsatt ganske funky electronica sak. Tre nřtter for enhver smak med andre ord!

Pĺ b-sida fĺr vi originalversjonen fra albumet, samt nok en vennetjeneste, Athome Project remixet i fjor sommer en lĺt fra danske Universal Funk, og i retur har han fĺtt 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 Torbjřrn aka Röyksopp have trouble with their computers, Stian is their man. To return numerous favours of hardware and software troublefixing, Röyksopp 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 Röyksopp 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 nřtter til röyksopp", 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, Röyksopp 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, Röyksopp,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 Röyksopp'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 novým Bristolom?

Nie je to tak dávno, čo sa bristolská scéna stala povinnou výbavou vari každého milovníka modernej pop-music. Spočiatku pritom išlo určite viac o music než pop, a kto bol od počiatku pri tom, smelo sa dnes môže považovať za jasnozrivého a odvážneho. Signály z nórskeho Bergenu vyvolávajú pocit déja vu. Navyše spriaznenosť jednotlivých aktérov je v nordickom prípade podmienená nielen spoločným životným priestorom, ale aj dlhoročným priateľstvom. Budú Röyksopp, Ralph Myerz, Bjorn Torske alebo Athome Project novými Massive Attack, Portishead či Reprazent? 
Zo zemepisného hľadiska majú Nóri predsa len istý handicap. Angličanom sa v muzike viac verí, anglickí poslucháči, dôkladne masírovaní komerčnými aj alternatívnymi médiami, míňajú na hudbu zo všetkých národov najviac, čo je v konečnom dôsledku blahodárne pre lokálnu scénu. Severania si škrtnú až vtedy, keď ich pre svet objaví niekto z Angličanov. Novinár, DJ alebo rovno muzikant. Áno, možno to znie neuveriteľne, ale sú popoví muzikanti, ktorí – nech už z akýchkoľvek pohnútok – fandia undergroundu a propagujú nové mená aj s rizikom, že poslucháč jedného dňa ocení viac neznámeho nováčika ako svoj starý idol.
Athome Project je kapelou jedného muža, 27-ročného multiinštrumentalistu Stiana Jacobsena. Žije na Sforde, malom ostrove neďaleko Bergenu, Na konte má 5 maxisinglov a kamaráti sa s Röyksopp. Tým je povedané mnohé – aj on ľúbi a produkuje melodické elektronické tracky, presahujúce hranice žánru smerom k funku a jazzu. Jednoducho povedané: ak šliape slušný groove, koho by zaujímali také podružnosti ako škatuľky? Eponymický albumový debut tvoria spolovice inštrumentálne a spolovice vokálne nahrávky. Medzi najvydarenejšie inštrumentálky patrí Analogue Acoustics. Ako už názov trochu napovedá, ide o čosi ako drum and jazz, čiže v podstate jungle s kontrabasom a saxofónom. Čosi podobné nie je cudzie ani Reprazent alebo Benovi Humanovi. Athome narába šikovne s atmosférickými klávesmi, rozličnými pazvukmi a tekutými harmóniami, obvykle nad solídnym dubovým základom. Everything Changes je dobrým príkladom toho, ako by čisto teoreticky mohol znieť Jarré, nebyť diagnóz typu gýč a megalománia. 
Spev patrí Kanaďanke Cailtin Simpson a výraznejšie nevybočuje zo štandardného soul-jazzového prejavu. Je zdravo dramatický až temný a ťažším kúskom dodáva istý popový flair. Do hitparád sa však za každú cenu netisne, čo potvrdzuje skoro samovražedný 17-minútový (!) trojdielny remix singla The Spy od inak čoraz populárnejších Röyksopp. Čisto teoreticky je však možné, že práve ten sa na našich a českých diskotékach ujme. Röyksopp totiž uvádzajú, že sa pri remixovaní nechali inšpirovať, citujem, by the Czech 70’s movie „Three nuts for Cinderella“. Konečne niekto ocení okrem Kájovho božského tenoru aj Juráškovo erdžanie a Tajtrlíkovo brechanie?

SME Kultúra
Beatservice je nórske vydavateľstvo orientované na downtempo, ambient a elektronickú hudbu, ktorého nahrávky už možno kúpiť aj na našom trhu. Album Athome Project je debutom 27-ročného Stiana Jacobsena, vystupujúceho pod pseudonymom Mr. Athome, ktorý sa doteraz objavoval predovšetkým na rôznych sampleroch. Nápaditý multiinštrumentalista sa hudbe naplno začal venovať, keď pre zdravotné problémy musel zanechať manuálnu prácu. Kým v mestečku Tromsö sa darí ambientu, Bergen je domovom projektov odvážnejšie ladeného elektronického popu.
Okrem známej skupiny Röyksopp odtiaľ pochádza aj Mr. Athome. Jeho nahrávka stojí predovšetkým na dunivých rytmických beatoch, nad ktorými znejú melancholické zvuky syntetizátorov. Chladné zvuky v niekoľkých skladbách poľudšťuje hlas speváčky Caitlin Simpsonovej. (her)
