DJ 99 aka Guttorm Andreasen continues to delve deep into the cornucopia that is Norwegian music, returning with a strong a highly varied playlist and an exciting interview with jazz pianist Tord Gustavsen.

DJ 99’s latest playlist spans the stylistic gap from contemporary post-classical pieces courtesy of the late Arne Nordheim, to folkesque fiddle bow strokes by Valkyrien Allstars, retro guitar-fuelled swing jazz from legend Robert Normann, German/Norwegian funk (that actually grooves!) laid down by The Whitest Boy alive and hard-hitting hardcore from Kvelertak. Rounding out the mix is contributions from Motorpsycho, Anne Marie Almedal, In Vain, Todd Terje, Tindra, Ephemera, The Samuel Jackson Five, Koumae Sereba & Erik Wøllo, Transjoik, RockettotheSky!, Håkon Kornstad and Masqualero.
