Flash back – Black Eyes and Blue

While I’m busy creating a new music video for you guys, I’ll take you down memory lane once again, and remember the ‘Black Eyes and Blue’ video with you.

Fun facts about ‘Black Eyes and Blue’:

  • This song is really about domestic violence, and is to me quite a tragic song. But most people experience it as a euphoric happy song.
  • A few of the people crashing the pool party at the end is actually on the Norwegian national team of snowboarding.
  • This song marked our ‘break-through’ in the music industry, when it became the official after movie track of the Ultra Festival, something we were the only Norwegian artists to achieve, until Kygo came along and did it, and people totally forgot about us already having been there.
  • Songwriter and vocals on this is the incredible Ingrid, the lead singer of HIGHASAKITE.

Thank You, Stavkroa!

The gig at Stavkroa was as fun as ever. Thank you to everyone who came out, and to Calle and his crew for the superstar treatment. Can’t wait to come back ❤

Getting ready for Hemsedal

It’s such a pleasure to play in Hemsedal. This place does not only hold one of the wiildest afterskis in the world, but it’s also home to the best promoter and host, Calle. I love doing gigs in collaboration with him. He’s such a pro and great guy. Make sure you stop by Stavkroa or Hemsedal Café if you’re in the area!

Today we’ve spent some time getting ready for tonights show, which means drinking prosecco in the slopes, without actually getting any skiing done. Even though we’re avid skiers, we forgot to take our skis with us. Maybe thankfully so, as there was an avalanche in the slopes today (nobody was hurt), and with our luck we’d probably be the ones who got the blame for it.

Anyway, so ready for tonight!

Baph wasn’t happy about the cold and snow, but he was kept warm by his Canada Pooch jacket my mother gave him for Christmas.

Thank you, Stockholm!

My first ever gig in Stockholm, Sweden is over and done with, and let me tell you – those Swedes know how to turn up. I had an amazing time playing Berns, and I’m so grateful for every single one who took the time to come out and party with me! The club was packed and I got to play a set that was completely next level for me. Had so much fun! On top of that, we managed to squeeze in a studio session in Axwells old studio, Sebjak and I.

Perfect techno-themed weekend!
