From Stockholm to Oslo…
We traveled around a lot while we were there (it was that or attend school), and my favorite country was Norway. It was the most beautiful place I’d ever seen. See…?
That’s just a small sample of their power…
Anyway, I was over at Scissorkick (an electonic music blog) today, and lo and behold, another post – this time from Steve – about a Scandanavian musician. This post is about Joachim Dyrdahl – aka DiskJokke – a 28-year-old violinist who seems quite adept at putting together some pop-electronica.
You can listen to “Folk I Farta” here (with credit to Scissorkick… enable your popups for this one):
In my opinion, the cut seems pretty cold and stark, but definitely dancefloor electonic. To me it sounds distinctly 80s in a lot of ways, but with present-time approaches and sensibilities. Either way, there are a lot of influences at work in his music, and I’m definitely motivated to check out more.
Hope you’re enjoying your trip to northern-most Europe.
