New Todd Terje remixes

Earlier this week, the producer maestro released two much-welcomed remixes of ‘Leisure Suit Preben’ from his hugely successful 2014 record It’s Album Time.

Since its introduction in 2010, the award has celebrated the full length album as an art form, not bound to genre, critiques or sales, but solely to the album content. The winner of Phonofile Nordic Music Prize, which will take place during by:Larm, will receive a NOK 30.000 prize, presented by GramArt.
