According to Resident Advisor, the boutique label Horisontal Mambo will be under Full Pupp, the Norwegian disco house label that Prins co-founded in 2005. The sublabel, Thomas said to the magazine, was "inspired by the irregular jams years he hosted years ago in his Norwegian hometown of Hamar, [which were] influenced by everything from medieval lute and harp records to underwater sounds via Elton John, Grateful Dead, Basic Channel and ECM albums."
It's a wide spectrum of influences that perhaps informs Horisontal Mambo's first release — a 12" of piano reinterpretations of Prins's track "Bobletekno" by jazz musician Bugge Wesseltoft, one on a grand, and the other on an electric.
The label and the "Bobletekno single" launch on April 8.
