Hailing from Oslo, Norway, Ost & Kjex have come a long way since their debut album, Some But Not All Cheese Comes From The Moon in 2004. Now, teaming up with fellow Norwegian and vocalist Whalesharkattacks, the duo paid tribute to one of Tina Turner’s classic hits with “Private Dancer.”
“We had a fascination with Tina’s Private Dancer since first being exposed to it by Pat Sharp on Sky Trax in the 80’s. Whalesharkattacks personifies everything that’s cool about the 80’s, so when we met her we knew we had to cut a version” – Ost & Kjex
The track includes a dark, yet melodic array of steady house beats and 80’s disco synths, which fuses perfectly with Whalesharkattacks’ distorted vocal style.
“Private Dancer” officially releases Friday, May 25 on the UK label Crosstown Rebels. Head here for the pre-order link.
