Not too long ago we had the pleasure to do an exclusive interview with Third Attempt about his carreer and family life. Now the talented producer rides in with his latest EP on Beatservice, crafting four suitably stunning tracks on the spellbinding ‘The Spirit’. A beloved fixture of the Beatservice roster now, Third Attempt combines a dazzling quality threshold with a prolific work rate, his immaculate productions have cemented his position as one of the Norwegian underground’s most reliable artists! On the week of the release of his new EP we ask one of Norway’s best exports to talk us through ten tracks that serve as milestones along his musical journey.
Bugge Wesseltoft – Change
Hard to pick a favourite from BW. Changed my perception on what electronic and jazz music can be. Have since had this man as a mentor, recorded music and played live with him. Forever grateful.
Røyksopp – Poor Leno
Timeless banger from the Tromsø-duo. Addictive groove vocals and really creative elements throughout. Especially the percussion. Placed ideas in my head from a young age, watching the music video on MTV.
Jungle has reached commercial status, but on their own terms. Hitting it out of the park with this one. The hook makes me want to get up and dance every time.
Ian Pooley – Spicy Snapper
Lots of influences shining through on this one. Really funky, uplifting track. I love the vocal samples and synthwork dancing on top of the sampled groove throughout.
Gang Starr – Mass Appeal
Will never not nod my head to this. Strong beat, really cool flow and strong message.
Darius – EQUILIBRIUM
Theme is an instant success. Synth keys and banging bassline. Feel like you could loop this forever. Creative twist with the progressively evolving soundscape. Peaking at the end. Pure bliss.
Favorite from my newest EP is “Soul Body & Mind”. I am very happy with the range I am able to show here. Putting many influences in one track is always something im trying to do.
Thanks for tuning into this exclusive tracktalk with Third Attempt. It’s always enlightening to understand the musical odyssey of a true artist, especially one as talented as him.
