Hailing from the renowned Oslo electronica scene, producer and DJ diskJokke (a.k.a. Joachim Dyrdahl) has released a brand new single ‘Now Dance,’ a quirky, spaced-out blend of house, italo, disco, or as Stereogum calls it a “bouncy electro-funk jam.” This single, accompanied by a remix from UK artist Bright Light Bright Light, contrasts Dyrdahl’s more recent ambient work, which makes the stand alone track perfect for Oslo-based label Splendour’s limited edition 7″ vinyl series. Pitchfork said, “hopefully this is a signal of a proper followup to 2010’s ‘En Tid Fid.'”
With 3 critically acclaimed LPs and a great remixography (including official remixes for David Lynch, Lindstrøm, Foals, the xx, Lykke Li and Bloc Party) diskJokke has become a respected name in the electronic music world. He is a classically trained violinist and has played since he was 5 years old. Classical music has always been and continues to be an important part of his life. diskjokke became interested in electronic music at the age of 15 when he discovered Norwegian DJ legend Olle Abstract`s radio show, and he’s been hooked ever since.
Splendour first released a split from artists His Clancyness and Shimmering Stars this past October, a Half-handed Cloud and I Was A King split earlier this month, and now diskJokke’s latest.
