#NewMusic from Tromsø, Norway
Dagny is from Tromsø, Norway (like way in the north where it’s seriously cold). She sure knows how to pen a catchy pop tune with plenty of warmth. Her latest track ‘Love You Like That’ is exactly that. It also made us want to find a lighter and hold in the air during the intro. Just saying.

Showing his soulful side, Drums Eat Everything have pulled an absolute beaut out of the bag with this track. Charlotte Dos Santos is a Norwegian composer / producer based in New York.

We’d not heard much from Norway’s Marius before his new track ‘Easy’ but this one hit us round the chops hard from the very first beat. The lo-fi drum madness that opens the track steps aside to welcome a gleaming synth chord stomp before rejoining the party in a big way. It’s like the love child of Dorian Concept and Hudson Mohawke.
Marius ‘Easy’ is out now.

We’re suckers for a good electro-pop bounder of a tune. Well, Norwegian producer WNDR has hit that sweet spot with his new tune ‘Human’.

Hello Monday! Straight in this week with a new release from Jerry Folk. He flexes his warped hip-hop style on the bubbling ‘Purple Feelings’, topped off with a sultry vocal performance from Rainsford.
Toybox tinkles introduce you before the distorted toms build, preceding the siren sounding to announce the arrival of another punchy beat backdrop from Folk. Like the previous EP, ‘Purple Feelings’ holds no firm ties to any genre, taking influences from many from R&B vocals to pop chord progressions and flourishes. There are hip-hop beats and chopping and stretching of sounds to rival a DMC contender.
Norwegian producer Jerry Folk, who released his debut EP ‘The Kids Tape’ last year, will be circling the US on tour in June and July. His new mixtape ‘Purple Evenings’ is due early June 2017.
Spotted on The Record Stache.
