The Norwegians are back to deliberately scandomentify the turntables of Kleine Reise. Stop!Dancing is here for the third time to discuss the fine arts of wierd House rythms and analog lights.
If you have been clubbing in Oslo, you have per def been dancing to the Norwegian prince of House, G-Ha. His rythmic excelency has been voted both the 5th most handsome dude AND the best dj of norway. Its not without reason. G-Ha has been there since housemusic arrived in Oslo in the late 80's. Together with chef Olanskii and Vinny VIllbass, he is running the 10 year old Sunkissed clubnight. The night has resulted in a residency at the Robert-Johnson in Frankfurt and irregular nights at fabric in London and one-off’s as far afield as Australia, and Gothenburg. Ranging from dubby disco to minimal the only red thread is a base of funk and leftism tying it together. SUNKISSED: “...for lack of a better parallel, the city's Hacienda Club” - PitchforkMedia.com
