I’m looking forward to head over to Bergen tomorrow for a Ploink evening marking the release of my new album “Hardware”, which will hit the shops on March 6th. I’ll be doing a live set, and DJ’s for the night is Thomas Urv and U-Teq.
I’m looking forward to head to Kirkenes this week for the opening of the Barentsspektakel arts festival, where I’ll be performing a new piece together with Aggie Frost and vertical dance troupe Bandaloop for the opening show.
I’m happy to announce that my next Mental Overdrive album, “Hardware”, will be released by Bergen’s own PLOINK on March 6th. The material goes pretty much back to basics, with live techno jams recorded straight down to tape and then edited slightly before sent off to mastering at D&M. More info to come soon.
This Sunday will see the premiere of “PUST” at Dansefestival Barents in Hammerfest. The performance is a collaboration with Liv Hanne Haugen and Lawrence Malstaf, and incorporates text, movement, light and live modular music, all set inside a 700m3 polyester bubble.
This coming Saturday, November 5th, I’ll be heading to London for the UK premiere of “Northern Disco Lights” – a documentary on “the rise and rise of Norwegian dance music”. The film will be screening at Rich Mix at 9PM, whereafter we move to Junction House for an afterparty with Bjørn Torske and yours truly behind the decks. Hope to see you there if you’re in town this weekend.
