Beatbully, known as Oslo’s ambassador of Skweee, has spent the last few years refining and polishing his sound. The result is a seamlessly blend of Ghettotech, Jungle and Reggaeton. Working as a sound designer for film and television by day and a musician at night, seem to have given him an edge when it comes to bullying beats and creating new sound. Ever since the release of Robot i tromma in 2008, Beatbully has been championed as one of the most promising new Electro Funk talents. His productions have garnered critical acclaim and recognition by the likes of The Guardian, XLR8R, Spin Magazine and BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens. On March 11, the Oslo-based beat creator will release a the six-song Set You Free EP on Dødpop.

Over the course of the last four years, Norwegian Sprutbass, or Eivind Henjum if you want to call him by his birth name, has gained major attention on the international music circuit with his analog synth-based Electro Funk. Sprutbass made his debut on Dødpop in 2008 with the critically acclaimed 7” Ulykke and has since then released music on Finnish Harmönia and UK record label Ninja Tune.
Critics have described his music as “the best synth work since the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack” and “Friday night at EDMX’s place”. Nevertheless, Henjum made a claim as to why he deserves the amount of buzz he receives when he set a new record for attendance and created a mosh pit at the Apollo stage at this year’s Roskilde Festival.
Over the last few of months, Sprutbass has been touring solidly overseas and filling up dance floors in Paris, New York, Barcelona and Berlin. When not on tour, the Oslo-based talent has been working extensively in the studio with Space Disco pioneer Prins Thomas, a journey that has resulted in the new Sprutbass EP.

Gretta Gunn was born from a dis-ease with the folk/indie scene, having herself spent a long time in the bands of others, always keen to break free and bring her own unique sound to the table. She produces, writes and records everything you hear today. She is very proud of the array of synthesizers she has accumulated over the years; the Little Phatty Moog, prophet 8, Nord Lead and Virus are among her beloved family, and it’s safe to say she’s a lover of the analogue sound.
Gretta has a dear love of the Ballad side of the eighties, an era when melody mattered, and the movie soundtracks that made us all feel invincible. Hook after Hook is what made those songs exist. She describes her music as a soundtrack from the eighties movies rather than the classic eighties sound. She mixes this sound with elements of breakdance and even metal at times.
The need to be in the country is an essential ingredient to making her music the-se days. Gretta chooses a more solitary life to assure the focus of the sounds she fell in love with as a child, having created a small magical studio for herself in her little country cottage in Ireland. When she does venture out to perform, she brings a feisty attitude, appearance and songs to match. Gretta is helped out live by her co-pilot Paul Hammock (aka Cignol) who plays a big role in the sound quality overall and triggering drums live, leaving Miss Gunn free to enjoy the per-formance.
The Target is part 2 of a 4 part album by Miss Gunn. Which should be described as another Snarling musical Cerberus. Three more tunes to add to the building army, all presented once again in 10-inch form with quality, glamour and style. This time around we see a release from Norway’s Dødpop label. Gretta Gunn meets skweee with some promising remixes to come. 6 months of hunting out her audience she now has her eyes firmly set on the Target. Gretta Gunn brings a fresh twist to an old sound with feisty lyrics to match.
