In celebration of one of the Norwegian music scene’s strongest traits; its diversity and cross-pollination between genres and styles; DJ 99, aka Guttorm Andreasen, has put together a veritable smorgasbord of tracks that range from cutting-edge electronica to traditional acoustic folk music, jazz and indie.
The first instalment in a long series, the inaugural edition of ’99 minutes’ features tracks by Datarock, Fjorden Baby!, Serena Maneesh, Årabrot, Elephant9, Jaga Jazzist, Diskjokke and Unni Løvlid Ensemble to name a few of the playlist’s strong names.
Exclusive Jaga Jazzist interview
Joining DJ 99 in the studio is also Jaga Jazzist member, exceptional drummer, as well as noted producer and composer Martin Horntveth:
Few DJs can rival Andreasen’s ability to blend styles and genres as witnessed by the programme’s seamless transition from vintage electronica courtesy of Sternklang, to traditional folk by fiddle master Gjermund Larsen and Hovedøen Social Club’s Scandi-Cuban salsa, Sami electronic melancholy by Niko Valkeapää as well as Side Brok’s weird Western-Norwegian dialect-tinged rhymes.
