Todd Terje, born Terje Olsen, arrived on the Scandinavian dance scene in 2004 and, in short order, became one of its prominent figures beside early supporter Prins Thomas and Hans-Peter Lindstrøm. Terje channeled a voracious appetite for several styles of music — including dub, disco, synth pop, house, and techno — into warmly received edits of tracks by Bee Gees, Michael Jackson, and Santana. He also made a splash in 2005 with “Eurodans,” one of his own productions, released on Thomas’ Full Pupp label. By 2006, it was difficult to keep tabs on all of Terje’s remix work, though the man’s looks at Lindstrøm’s “Another Station,” Studio’s “Life’s a Beach!,” Kaoru Inoue’s “The Secret Field,” and Dølle Jølle’s “Balearic Incarnation” weren’t easy to avoid in discerning DJ sets. On Remaster of the Universe, released on 2010 through Permanent Vacation, Terje served up a collection of his edits and remixes in the form of a continuous DJ mix. A year later, he released one of his most popular tracks, “Snooze 4 Love,” on Gerd Janson’s Running Back.
