Todd Terje saunters into the Button Factory this Saturday for his next Irish appearance after a huge night in Workman’s last November. Having been at that gig, I was blown away by the breadth of this lad’s setlist, accommodating everything from 80s disco to straight-up house, fresh off the Ibiza shores. Far from being a one-hit wonder – as the sensational “Inspector Norse” of 2012 would have him depicted – Terje’s reputation in the industry is pristine. His tracks don’t follow traditional routines, often veering off the beaten-track and representing amalgamations of every influence imaginable. His sets don’t differ greatly from this practice, with those in attendance bombarded from every stylistic angle.
With a rightful place on many festival bookings, Terje’s summer is looming, and you’d be wise to catch this gig.
