Thor De Force is the solo project of guitarist and producer Thor Madsen. Since signing with Philadelphia based label Ropeadope Thor De Force has released two albums and a mini EP.
The Build (album) – Ropeadope 2020
The Build is a nu-funk future-jazz album released in 2020.
Armed with an arsenal of equipment Thor De Force creates a funk odyssey of 12 genre-bending tracks.
With Abdullah S, Stunn Gunn, Mads Michelsen, Lis Wessberg, Benjamin Kissi and Boe Larsen. Recorded, produced and mixed at Mazza Mansion studio.
The Build is a seriously cool record. It’s well produced, the right level of complex, engaging, and most of all, funky as hell. […] Thor De Force is indeed a force to be reckoned with, and the hypnotic effects of its ultra smooth sounds are long-lasting. We can only give thanks to Mr Thor Madsen and his band for sharing their immaculate talents, and for putting all of us less funky humans to shame. We’re not worthy.Ashley Jacob – Everything Is Noise
