Release Date: 25/04/11
Thomas Erichsen and David Kosteljanetz aka DATO are a real jewel in the Danish crown and with a string of hits already under their belts, we were simply over-the-moon when the boys approached us to sign this superb EP.
So let’s kick-start with the title track – Hard To Find is a boogie bassline vocoder driven wonder, that’s awash with Nordic melody-lines, funky guitar licks and a chorus-line that’ll have you singing along to your Spring cleaning in no time.
Following on in the same uplifting vein we have ‘My Life Is Perfect Now’ – this time the lead vocals are the responsibility of Jannie Linnebæk and boy what a great job she does too. Again that all important boogie bassline is clearly evident and the lush pads, strat licks and synth swells make this a real dancefloor treat.
Next up… Got To Get Out – a delightful rhodes driven groover that’s simply jam packed full of F.U.N.K. and continues DATO‘s theme of catchy chorus-lines, uplifting Nordic melodies and the general feeling that even when life gets tough, a way of getting out and experiencing positivity again is just around the corner.
So to sum this release up – the ‘Hard To Find EP’ does exactly what is says on the tin, and by this we mean that in this day-and-age it’s very ‘hard to find’ Dance music of this hi-end calibre… this is contemporary Scandinavian Nu Disco at it’s finest!
We hope you ENJOY! :o)
