Rhythm Cast A Spell On Me (featuring Lydia Waits)


Press info

Delightfully eclectic sonic explorer Kohib makes a welcome return with the scintillating new single, 'Rhythm Cast A Spell On Me'.

DJ, producer and club organiser Øivind Sjøvoll has been actively producing exquisitely formed and far-reaching music for two decades, releasing cosmically-centred sounds on labels including Paper, Sprechen, and Lost Paradise. Ranging in glorious tone from the sweetest sunset soundtracks to throbbing meta-disco deviance, his expansive sound palette is both rich with vibrant luminosity and refreshingly difficult to predict. Following on from his hauntingly beautiful 'Armoured Boy' collaboration with Anneli Drecker, he's back in Beatservice action with a similarly seductive leftfield composition.

'Rhythm Cast A Spell On Me' sees Kohib welcome back singer Lydia Waits to provide a uniquely bewitching vocal performance. The profoundly atmospheric track meanders over a subtly effective rhythm track, with captivating instrumentation immaculately orchestrated to encompass delicate keys, dramatic bass notes, sprightly xylophone hits and otherworldly bass-clarinet refrains. The music blissfully caresses Waits' ethereal vocal, while hypnotic percussion elegantly embellishes the sublimely mesmeric groove.

The single release serves as a tantalising taster to a full album that's set to follow later in the year, and judging by this most spell-binding single, a supremely refined sonic delicacy awaits us.

Fake Fur (featuring Helle Larsen)


Press info

Talented meta-disco maverick Kohib is back in action for Beatservice Records with his latest reliably dazzling studio offering, 'Fake Fur'.

Øivind 'Kohib' Sjøvoll needs little in the way of introduction. The Beatservice mainstay routinely delivers ultra-refined sonics from across the board of eclectic wonderment, from sunset soundtracks to rousing disco deviance. The DJ, producer, and club organiser has released exceptional music on revered labels including Paper and Sprechen, featuring an expansive sound palette that is both rich with vibrant luminosity and refreshingly difficult to predict. Following his recent exquisite 'Rhythm Cast A Spell On Me' single – forged with vocalist Lydia Waits – Sjøvoll returns to collaborative action for the new single, this time pairing with his High Heeled Giants bandmate, Helle Larsen.

'Fake Fur' arrives with deliciously brooding intent, with Larsen's bewitching vocal gliding over immersive instrumentation and otherworldly textures. Evocative harmonics combine with ethereal synth leads and dramatic aural waves as hypnotic percussion gently drives the intoxicating groove. The vividly atmospheric music conjures the half-light of a crisp autumnal haze, warmed by the fire of the honeyed lead vocal, guiding the listener in from the chill of the night air.

This is the second single presented from Kohib's forthcoming long-player, and, once again, the immersive music leaves us ravenous in anticipation of the full release, while tantalisingly whetting our appetites in anticipation of what's to come.

Sidewalk Confessions (featuring Helle Larsen)


Press info

DJ, producer and club organiser Øivind Sjøvoll returns to his ever-welcoming home label to deliver the latest in a string of utterly engaging sonic delights. Following on from the recent 'Fake Fur' release, Kohib once again teams with the distinctive vocal flair of Helle Larsen to present the third exquisite morsel lifted from his hotly anticipated 'Today's Tales Of Tomorrow' album, which is due for release early next year. Once again blurring genre lines, Kohib serves a richly atmospheric track – with smokey hip hop beats combined with dreamy instrumentation and infectious atmospherics while Larsen's sweet-yet-provocative vocals add focus to the music's mysterious haze. Magnetic chords, levitating solos, and deeply-weighted bass provide the bed for the memorable lyrics to discreetly charm the captivated listener.

As ever, the production quality is supreme, and – as with the two singles that preceded it – 'Sidewalk Confesions' leaves us purring with the prospect of diving deep into the forthcoming long-player.
