Nordic ice meets Spanish fire in the latest offering from Fine Grains Records collaboration series. 'Blåis' is a split EP featuring Norwegian skweee boss Beatbully and Barcelona-based Fitzroy North. The release is complete with distinct remixes by young Scottish grime producer Inkke, synthetic funk master Joe Howe (fka Ben Butler & Mousepad) and one of the finest beats producers this side of the Atlantic, Mwëslee. The artwork comes from Norwegian graphic artist Halvor Bodin. 'Blåis', one of over 100 Nordic words for snow and ice, occurs when snow falls on a glacier, is compressed, and becomes part of the glacier. Over the course of 8 tracks, Beatbully & Fitzroy North squeeze the maximum from their respective MPC & synth setups to deliver an unpretentious mix of synthetic funk with a punch.
