TIRK070 - Morten Sorensen - The Burn Down EP1) Burn Down (Original)
2) Burn Down (LPZ Remix)
3) Owe That 2 U
After his recent excursion remixing Groove Armada, Morton Sorenson returns to the fold with a stunning little release for Tirk titled 'The Burn Down EP.'
For those that don't know, Morten is in his early twenties and hails from a small fishing village in rural Norway. His Dad probably spent many years in New York and the records that he brought back encouraged a love of American house and disco on the impressionable Morton.
'Burn Down (Original)' is an exercise in uplifting, stripped back house music. Less is more here, the vibe stays rich and never loosens its grip. The rhythms skip on top of the beat and the vocal interludes make for a real vivid experience. The LPZ remix on the other hand sits back a bit, the rhythms are solidly swung and the vocal appears more affluently in the mix. It feels smooth and definitely cool.
To top the package, we're served up some chi-town flavours with 'Owe That 2 U.' Sustained strings and a slo-mo shuffle builds, then peels away to a hollowed out organ breakdown. A hauntingly affected vocal and clever edits ensue then drop back into the beat, articulated now by the clack of a tough stacatto synth. In our eyes, a brilliant end to a fantastic package.
