With the highly anticipated release of Thorsteinssøn's ‘Academy of Heroes' album on the horizon, Pets Recordings have decided the flip the switch early and precede the longplayer with a fantastic trio of remixes. Academy of Heroes is described as ‘deliciously cosmic and cheerily schizophrenic' and looking to break down and reconstruct some of this glorious frenzy are three exciting producers, each of which have chosen a track from the album to remix. First up is London based Pets pal Ashworth, who returns to the label for the first time since December's ‘Collapsed' ep. 'Sixtrack Blues' is the track of choice with Ashworth harnessing the originals dreamy vibe and adding a punchy guitar driven groove. Talking of ‘punch', Gerd steps up, under his Geeeman guise, on a rework of 'Sammy'. Taking the original's liquidy and acidic melody the Dutchman straightens and replays, replacing the original's loose drums with a raw, kickass rhythm of his own to turn Sammy into a warehouse weapon. Fresh from their Boiler Room debut, Berlin live act Cab Drivers select the bulbous cosmic disco of ‘Midnight At Taffey's' to resculpt. A driving drum pattern turns the original slomo groover into a stellar swinging workout. A superb selection of remixes, each far removed from Thorsteinssøn's originals. Making the anticipation for the Academy Of Heroes that much greater. Enjoy

Meet Thorsteinssøn. The Iceland-born-Denmark-bred Gunnar Thor Viggosson better known as one half of 76-79 with Tommy Vicari Jnr and bossman at Comfortable Records and Vanity. Right now, though, we’re calling him the man behind the first Pets artist album this year… Deliciously cosmic and cheerily schizophrenic, ‘Academy Of Heroes’ is inspired by a brilliant creative project Thorsteinssøn practiced during his years living in Amsterdam: Solar Industry Radio. A project that would begin with a made up artist or band name in styles ranging from cosmic funk,scandinavien disco to noise collages of the galaxies. A joyously backwards project that inspired a rich rainbow of styles, the content was then represented 24/7 online, collaged with strange jingles and sifi snippets. Genius. Returning to those creations, Thorsteinssøn and Pets have weaved together a full album that cherry picks from his thunderous proliferation: from the strutting west coast deep house of ‘1976’ to the introverted electro boogie of ‘N M T F R’ by way of the poignant chords of ‘Untitled Disco Six’, the wry acid wriggles of ‘Channel DISQ’ and the Trans Am twinkles of ‘Beneath A Steel Sky’, the 14 collection acts as an immersive, timeless collage. A smorgasbord of synthetic exploration, rich in sci-fi, space and robotic sympathy, pieced together with the same spirit of his cult radio transmissions, it works just as well on the cans as it does in the dance… And it’s en route with an equally alluring package of remixes. An album, a radio show for freaks or simply a journey into Thorsteinssøns world.. Whatever… He really is a creative maverick. !
