Strap on your jet packs and get ready to take off this Friday when Prins Thomas arrives to play Night Flight at the Button Factory. The Night Flight boys have been putting on some of Dublin's best nights since they started this summer, bringing over the likes of Claude Von Stroke, Aeroplane, and Todd Terje, and Prins Thomas should be no exception when he plays all night long in an immense 5-hour set.
Prins Thomas is a bit of a Norwegian musical polymath, releasing his own music as well as working as a producer, remixer, record boss of his Full Pupp and Internasjonal labels, and collaborator with compatriot Hans-Peter Lindstrom, with whom he is responsible for pioneering the nu-disco/cosmic disco/space disco sound. Not that Prins Thomas himself is too bothered about genres: "It could have been a lot worse than nu-disco or cosmic disco…. I’m just happy it’s not called syrup or crunk or something really stupid like that." (from a Resident Advisor interview, check it here).
As with all things in life, we think its best for you to listen and make up your own mind. So have a listen to some of the tracks below, as well as his absolutely storming Essential Mix with Lindstrom, and if you are around Dublin town, get your ass down to the Button Factory this Friday. We've got two passes to give away too help you along: shoot a mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org with your name to be in with a chance. Failing that, tickets are on sale now here.
