McSKWEEE LIKE A PIG ABERDEEN!!!
A skweee showcase introducing one of the best known labels in the genre, direct from Norway and in the UK for the very first time to launch the debut Dødpop artist LP, 'Kosmik Regn' by Beatbully. Having sent the dancefloor into a mass skweee sprawl at Unsound in Poland, By:Larm and Øyafestivalen in Oslo last year - this exclusive Scottish date as part of a UK tour will deliver live sets from key members of the Norwegian imprint:
Formed in 2008 in Oslo, Dødpop instantly made a hit on the Skweee scene with a series of essential 7" and a critically acclaimed compilation. Taking in all the influences of the Skweee pioneers and combining it with a fresh Norwegian boombap punch: the sound of Dødpop is bright, funky and primed for the dancefloor. The 2nd Dødpop compilation, released late last year, confirmed their position as one of the leading international 'Skweee' labels and as one of Norway's most exciting music movements in recent times. This tour will introduce the unique sounds of skweee and the very first Dødpop artist album, 'Kosmik Regn' by Beatbully.
With DJ support from DO IT! residents (Uraki Riddim, Kid Bell & White Chocolate) and Hush Hush honcho Giles Walker, live visuals by Uber AV and an almighty Funktion One soundsystem - the event promises to be an exciting introduction to the conflict r'n'b and synthetic funk sounds of this Scandinavian analogue movement that has gathered international interest.
