To listen to a preview of the new single from Kohib feat. Mari

For this latest release from Norwegian imprint Beatservice
and rising producer Kohib, the artist
is joined by celebrated Norwegian Sami vocalist Mari Boine.
Hailing from the far north of Norway, Boine is known for embracing the musical history of
her indigenous arctic heritage, most famously on the Gula
album release in 1990 on Peter Gabriel's Real World label. Mari Boine
has made steps into electronic music with two 'remixed' albums, the first containing the
popular Chilluminati mix of "Gula Gula" which was licensed to the Cafe Del Mar series. The
second album of remixes, 2008's It Ain't Necessarily Evil,
included Kohib remixing a version of "On Fells Of The North." Kohib's remix made Mari
Boine a mutual fan, and the two had planned an imminent collaboration. Finally, tight
schedules coincided and a studio session commenced. The result is two superb tracks found
on this single, "Tirakan" and "One Hundred Of

"Tirakan" features Kohib's trademark icy mid-tempo groove,
accentuated by expansive synths, a bold bass line, and dreamy dance floor textures. Mari
Boine's evocative vocal floats beautifully on top, adding extra depth and gravitas to an
already deep affair. The combination is magical. This is followed by "One
Hundred Of Them
," opening with a syncopated synth pattern before the slinky
four-on-the-floor takes hold. Here Boine's vocal line is at its most exotic and worldly,
seeming to deliver invocations as the music builds and coalesces into a cosmic delerium.
Kohib and Mari Boine play off each other with washes of tension and dynamics creating a
bit of sonic drama that discerning listeners will cherish. It's definitely not a
run-of-the-mill dance floor track.

Kohib, AKA ivind Sjvoll from Sortland in the north of
Norway, has been an important part of the club-scene in the town of Troms since 1997,
first as a DJ, later as a club organizer. In 1998 he started the legendary club Yaz'n with
a few friends. It was Norway's smallest club, but famous for its sweaty funk nights.
ivind had his musical debut with the band Parliavox in 2001, mixing funk and jazz with
electronica/house elements. He started his solo electronica production in 2003, and had
his recording debut with the track "Truger" on the Prima Norsk
compilation in 2005. Kohib is the name of ivind's mostly instrumental
electronica / house / dub project which performs live in collaboration with Simen Justdal
from TANK design on the visual side. Kohib released his debut album Make
in 2010 on Beatservice. After the release of the album, several
friends from the Norwegian electronic scene were asked to create reinterpretations of
tracks from the album which resulted in the well-receivedMake FIre - The
collection. Kohib's also known for his recent and acclaimed
Solar Day EP, his prior release on Beatservice Records.

Djuma Soundsystem - "Lovely tune, fantastic vocals!"
Dave Seaman - "Wicked vibes."
Q-Burns Abstract Message - "An icy triumph, this. The upward
crawl of 'Tirakan' is fascinating, and Mari Boine's vocals make it even more so. 'One
Hundred Of Them' and its dark build is impossible to ignore as well."
Ilya Santana - "Love it. Super slow burning madness!"
Jim Stanton (Horse Meat Disco) - "'Tirakan' is superb the
drama! 'One Hundred Of Them' is solid, as well."
OOFT! - "Really feeling both tracks. Excellent work!"
Psychemagik - "Loving the blissed out Balearic vibes of both
tracks, and feeling the deep ethnic vocal on 'Tirakan'."
Irregular Disco Workers - "Both are beautiful, slowed down
and epic disco tracks."
Rune Lindbk - "Djkelsk bra!"
