The 'Nu Disco' Sounds of Finland

Here is a funky "nu disco" gem titled "Paiste" from the Finland based band G-Litter. This track was released way back in 2002 off the group's self-titled album, which was released off the Finland label Lifesaver Records. I only came across this album recently when the label this past year decided to reissue the record. This previously out-of-print album seems to have slipped through the cracks a bit on it's initial release, however through the recent reissue, has started to get some well-deserved attention. I find that the album was well ahead it's time, as it reminds me of a cross between Linstrom & Prins Thomas's early material and the more down-tempo grooves by Faze Action. While it seems that for the past decade the Finland group has pretty much operated slightly "under the radar", they have definitely managed to do so while releasing some superb and well-crafted nu disco gems, and it's now exciting to see that all the group's hard-work is finally receiving some well-deserved praise. Enjoy!
