Album " Telemark " -reviewed :
" Marius Vareid has long been part of the furniture at Prins Thomas' Full Pupp label, releasing a string of typically Scandolearic 12"s over the last few years. Here he presents his long-promised debut album, a dewy-eyed journey that's as Balearic as stumbling out of Space at midday with a mile-wide grin on your chops. While there's plenty of delicious synthscapes, dreamy downtempo grooves and soft-centred Norwegian disco to enjoy, the album's best moments are more obviously bright, breezy and rush-inducing. The wonderful title track and piano-heavy "Sandstrand", in particular, are utterly beguiling, as is enchanting closer "Tropisk Storm". Highly recommended. " JunoDownload.

It was the Swedish radio show soulcorner with radio legend Mats nileskjar that got Marius interested in djing and music production. Starting out with a dynachord tape echo mixer, a fender rhodes and two turntables, Marius waited a good twenty years to release his first solo album, now ready to launch from the safe havens of Prins Thomas' Full Pupp label.
