Exit DISTORTION. Enter START!

11 Jun

I still haven’t quite absorbed this years DISTORTION festival, so I haven’t decided on the favourites … yet! But I’ll get there soon.

Meanwhile …. I’m slowly getting ready for the START! festival, which takes place just 5 minutes away. (Yei!)

The START! festival focuses on new, mainly Danish, bands. No particular genres, just the acts that the festival jury find the most exciting right now. Judging by this years artwork, one might think that they’ve gone completely overboard in some 60’s hippie Hendrix guitar frenzy … BUT luckily the program has a lot of promising new talent in my favourite genre, the electronic one.

I’ve got my eye set on one artist in particular. Danish act: Rangleklods. Which translates into something like … ehm … rattlebox … rattlebrick … ehm … no, it doesn’t actually translate that well. At all. Luckily the music speaks for itself! I’m looking forward to this.

Young and dumb.
Enjoy.

 

They made this possible!!!
Thanks to Kronvold at Club Dish for a heads up on this one!

Have a nice weekend!

SPOT update!

2 Jun

Busy, busy so just a short update from a really nice SPOT festival last weekend.

3 videos from my top 3 concert list, which could just as easily have been a top 14.

For me it was the Norwegian year.
For starters, lovely diverted experience with Harrys Gym.

 

Next up is something also Norwegian. Nothing new, new, new!!!! – but a first time for me to experience Jarle Bernhoft.
He’s really amazing.

I’m usually all about synth, dub and heavy baselines, but all though scaringly r’n’b funk-like, this really got to me.
Insanely talented!


And then finally for something completely different!

Danish act, Brother Grimm.

Of course I’m totally overboard on the lyrics-part of this. The act of rapping on funny issues, and still managing to keep it real and making one hell of a pa-har-ty-hay!
Is da WiggedyWack.

For more on SPOT
For another one of my favourites who does words
For instant fun – COME TO COPENHAGEN NOW and join the DISTORTION street festival!

I bet you can still make it here!

DISTORTION!!!!

27 Apr

My favourite time of year is almost here!
Summer!

If you haven’t ever been to Copenhagen in the summertime, then maybe this is the year to go?
And maybe you should make sure to visit in the beginning of June, as it is here the infamous DISTORTION festival hits the streets!!

Beginning on the 1st of June and carrying on through the weekend, DISTORTION is like something you’ve never seen before. Every day is a new block party in a new part of town, and in the weekend final parties with some really amazing artist from both Denmark and abroad seem to go on and on and on.

As Denmark seem to get increasingly unpopular for its strict foreign policies and the as the whole political scene seem to turn into nothing but a big charade of worthless chit chatting blah blah blah mambo jumbo – THIS is still something Danish I’m totally proud of!

Tickets are on sale at staggeringly low prices, people are getting restless as the lineup is slowly being reveled. It’s almost time! Jump on board! : )

Get your tickets here and go to the Distortion website for more info.

Yei!! : )
