As reported by THUMP, Scandinavian producer Todd Terje and his band The Olsens are putting out an EP's worth of disco covers, The Big Cover-Up. Now the band has released one its most anticipated cuts as a single.
On "Firecracker," Terje and crew take the legendary Japanese trio Yellow Magic Orchestra's vintage dance jam and embellish it with an uptempo beat, trilling keyboard line, and choral accompaniment. The spirit of the track is still there, as if YMO and Terje were in the room together to give this classic cut a more contemporary sound. Listen to it below.
