Souldrop (N)
    Sunday February 19, 2012 12:30am - 1:00am @ Nokia teltet
    After gaining increasing recognition from the Norwegian music world with their bass heavy, catchy, clubby remixes for the likes of Lars Vaular, Datarock, Razika, Susanne Sundfør, Thomas Eriksen, Gatas Parlament, Fjorden Baby! and many more, Souldrop are now ready to drop their debut E.P. of their own material. The idea to make the leap from remixers to artists in their own right came when Even Brenna, Pål Myran-Håland and Thomas Knudsen realised that the way they created the remixes was not to far off the way they would go about creating original tracks. Why not put a few together and see how it goes? The first track out, “Om Igjen” with vocal contributions from Lars Vaular and Store P went straight in at number one on the iTunes electronic chart and quickly became a DJ favourite. Souldrop decided to take it all a step further and begun to work on a live show. After a full house at the live debut and absolutely smashing it at their second show at Slottsfjell / Kastellnatt, the boys knew they were on to something. On “Prelude E.P.” Souldrop have put together a varied spectrum of guest appearances. From Swedish rap star Adam Tensta, to Norwegian pop hopeful Kinee, the band have clearly experimented somewhat whilst honing what defines Souldrop. Aftenposten described Souldrop’s remix of Gatas Parlament’s track “Jobbe litt mindre og tjene litt mer” as “…a production that Robyn would love” and decreed that “the track deserves to be a hit”. Head of music at NRK P3, Mats Borch Bugge, picked out Souldrop’s Lars Vaular remix as a personal favourite when writing on P3.no: “The remix takes the track’s clubby vibe seriously and and takes it in an out and out dance direction. The build-up and the drop are absolutely phenomenal, and reminds me of the feeling I had at Hyperstate in 1995”.
