TORGNY, Sprutbass, Intertwine
9 April, 2014
Kaltblut ”The perfect track for you to dance Xmas away!”
Hailing from Oslo, TORGNY‘s offerings are often melodic and gloomy, but also restless and energized. The former hardcore singer turned electronic solo man is seemingly inspired by everything from expressionist stage dives to post-club-pre-dawn existentialism. TORGNY is a very expressive, interesting character and enjoys collaborating with film makers, photographers and other artists. His new album Oil Panic is a nine-song burst of blaring beats, hypnotic vocals and unpredictable melodies. Oil Panic is a conflicted work of beauty and aggression, it packs many surprises.
BBC Radio 1: “One of this year’s highlights at Øya Festival.”
Over the course of the last five years, Norwegian Sprutbass has gained major attention on the international music circuit with his analog synth-based Electro Funk. The critically acclaimed 7” Ulykke has been described as “the best synth work since the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack” and “Friday night at EDMX’s place”.
nothingbuthopeandpassion: “Strange melodies soaked in trumpets, drums, funky basslines, resonance and reverb. Synthgaze sounds that now and then remind of the beautiful Korallreven.”
Intertwine was started in 2006 by then 17-year old Tarjei Ekelund in his bedroom in Larvik, Norway. Tired of reading piano and trumpet sheet music, he started creating his own tracks, weaving distorted and repitched piano-, cornet- and vocal sounds together into melancholic reverb carpets – giving the name of the project: Intertwine. In 2011/2012, three tracks were postet on Urørt, all picked up by the staff and played on national radio, while “So what” was awarded Urørt of the week.
