Maybe you’ve already read about it flicking through various blogs, Facebook pages or speaking to a friend of a friend who’s heard; or maybe the news hasn’t reached you yet.
On 8 September, Patrizia Pepe’s Vogue Fashion Night’s Out is going to be something else: the RÖYKSOPP DJ set will be putting some serious energy into a night made for fun. The Norwegian duo, one blond the other dark-haired, have been mixing very subtle, very compelling melodies since they started working together.
Svein Berge and Torbjorn Brundtland have been playing the international music scene since 2001, combining ambient, lounge music and electronic funk with flashes of dance and Afro-American beats; all flavoured with Nordic influences. It’s this balance been warm and cold sounds that make Röyksopp so unique.
To date, they have released four albums, worked with Robyn, Karin Dreijer (lead singer of Swedish group Knife), Likke Li and made some fantastic remixes of tracks by Beck, Coldplay, The Streets and Felix da Housecat; their live performances would even get the the biggest of couch potatoes off the sofa!
They certainly know their stuff these Scandinavian boys; always on the lookout for catchy, new sounds, they still have so much more to say, and there’s so much still to be said about them.
To get ready for the big night which will be upon us in just a few days, here’s a few of our favourites..
