Jonas V (N)
    Thursday February 16, 2012 10:00pm - 10:30pm @ Nokia teltet, annex
    He recently released the mixtape 21 gram (www.21gram.no) with contributions from big names such as Ralph Myerz and old heroes from the Bergen rap community, such as Peter Beyer and Mike “Kazaam” Tamba (from the former rap group Freakshow). The mixtape received good reviews in including Bergens Tidende and Natt & Dag. Jonas V and Hkon has played at most notable nightlife clubs in Bergen, both together and separately, and have opened for, among others, Devin the Dude (U.S.) and Slaughter House (U.S.). His lyrics deal with both sides of the life (assuming that there are only two sides to life) of a young generation of people who enjoy life in one of the world’s richest countries and portrays a life of partying and drugs with a hint self-irony, but still honestly, often in a gangsta-rap style.

Highasakite (N)
    Thursday February 16, 2012 11:00pm - 11:30pm @ Nokia teltet, annex
    Ingrid Helene Håvik from Your Headlights Are On and Trond Bersu from Pelbo are the core of HighasaKite. Vocals, zither, electronics and drums form the basis of the band’s sound. In the studio the band are joined by Krøyt’s Thomas Dahl on guitar and live the band are augmented by Sacred Harp’s Øystein Skar on keys. HighasaKite are a relatively new proposition, but even in a short space of time, a lot has happened. They won the 2011 Momentum prize netting them 15 days at the Ocean Sound studio and a slot at now key event Sommerfesten Giske. In addition they’ve had a couple of nods from NRK Urørt and that’s resulted in airplay on P3 as well as being playlisted on a number of other regional stations. Their debut album is now complete and will be released via Riot Factory. “Like a warm breeze HighasaKite swathe you in mystery, something that feels both comfortable and healthy. “Indian Summer” has qualities that sound like they’re from the world that Lykke Li plays in, cool electronic pop with a good ear for melody and stunning vocals." – NRK P3 Urørt

Dante (S)
    Friday February 17, 2012 12:00am - 12:30am @ Nokia teltet, annex
    Dante is perhaps best known as the drummer and a key creative force behind The Concretes for the last five years. But earlier this past year he made his debut as a solo artist with the critically acclaimed single “Next To You” receiving both national and international plaudits. Since then Dante has released a follow up single, “Runners” which was subsequently picked as track of the year by P3 presenter Märtha Myrstener. The music is influenced by commercial pop, Drake, The Dream and the cream of the R&B crop, the result though is a sort of cross between Phil Collins and The Weekend. Dante self produces all his material, and is also working with other artists including his own father Toni Holgersson who he’s assisted with the production on his Swedish Grammy nominated album “Ibland kallar jag det kärlek”. Dante’s own self titled debut will be released in the Spring by Baseline Music.

Megafon (DK/NO)
    Friday February 17, 2012 1:00am - 1:30am @ Nokia teltet, annex
    Megafon are a duo based in Denmark, comprised of vocalist Marte Schow who is Norwegian but of Gypsy extraction and Danish multi-instrumentalist Mikael Fleron. Live they are joined on stage by a bassist and a drummer. Megafon hop backwards and forwards between incalculable number of genres, Balkan meets nordic folk, Middle Eastern bazar meets metal and electro. Mikael plays Balkan sax until he sweats buckets and Marte sings so hard her soul almost springs out of her mouth. Her vocals have roots in Bulgarian traditions but she’s also been strongly influenced by Norwegian, Indian and Arabian vocal techniques and yes, you’re reading this correctly, heavy metal. They have just released “HURRA”, a cornucopia of strong emotions and meaty beats. The lyrics are delivered in Norwegian, English, Bulgarian and Danish, a crazy mix, just like the music. The members in Megafon are full-time musicians in their own right and work with the likes of Trentemøller, Bjørn Svin, Fleshquartet, Jacob Groth, Frans Bak, Mikael Simpson & Sølvstorm, Kira Skov, Düreforsøg amongst others.

Grande Roses (S)
    Friday February 17, 2012 2:00am - 2:30am @ Nokia teltet, annex
    Grande Roses play loud and proud classic rock but without falling into the age old trap of making something generic and stale. Think Gun Club, Union Carbide, National, early Springsteen, Madrugada and er, Sisters of Mercy. Grande Roses began life in 2003 as the brainchild of Göran. Because he wasn’t a good enough musician to be able to master anyone else’s songs he wrote his own, which in time turned out to be some cracking tunes. Later that same Summer Göran was supposed to play a festival and needed someone to play pedal steel. He got the number for a guy in Östersund but it turned out that the chap had never played pedal steel. Göran tried to give him a bass but he took a guitar instead. This was the first time Göran and Johan has met. In the aftermath of the festival show they recorded a demo of post-apocalyptic rock and were subsequently signed, split up and got back together, then took a long break before getting back together a second time. Just the usual band stuff. As to how Grande Roses started for real; Johan had played with Erik and Magnus. Johan hinted to Göran that these could be smart choices for drums and bass for the band. And that’s how it was for the first few years, until Emil came along and took over on drums and Magnus moved up to play guitar alongside Johan.

Oter (N)
    Friday February 17, 2012 9:00pm - 9:30pm @ Nokia teltet, annex
    Oter is one 27 year old Stian Ottesen from Tromsø. Oter has been part of the so called hip-hop underground for years now. Originally as the driving force behind Oslo-based studio / collective Cracklab alongside such luminaries as Svartepetter, Herreløse, OnklP amongst others. Almost three years ago now though, he moved back to his home town of Tromsø in the North of Norway. As chance would have it one of his contemporaries, Poppa Lars of Tungtvann fame moved at the same time and the pair have been working together ever since. The results are striking, creating some of the best hip-hop to ever come out of Norway. In danger of laying waste to all that has gone before, this is next level shit. In October 2011 their debut proper was released, the single “Karusell”, produced by Bergen based electro act Souldrop. The released was launched with an explosive video directed by Carl Critical, an insight into the murky psyche of Oter, ex-hitmen, armed robbers, Russian coke, mental institutions, violent flashbacks, a disasterous killing and not least a rather sexy nurse. See it in full at the NORDalliansen.org website. The album, with the working title “Kollektiv Kollaps” is expected to be finished in the coming year. Over the past year or so Oter has played at Døgnvillfestivalen 2010, Parkenfestivalen in Bodø (2010), Sparebanken Nord-Norge’s 175 year jubilee, Rock Against Drugs in Andenes and opened for Yelawolf in Oslo and Xzibit / DJ Quik in Tromsø, played alongside Lars Vaular and A-Laget as well as a bunch of his own gigs. On stage the duo often are joined by Klisne Fingra, who’s also originally from Tromsø byt now resident in Oslo. Their gig at by:Larm will be an unprecedented, explosive show.

Daniel Norgren (S)
    Friday February 17, 2012 11:00pm - 11:30pm @ Nokia teltet, annex
    Daniel Norgren makes traditional rootsy Americana music filtered through the sound of Swedish forests.
    He first came to public attention with his 2007 debut, “Kerosene Dreams”, which was followed a year later with sophomore effort “Outskirts” and more recently “Horrifying Deatheating Blood Spider” which earned him a nomination for best Singer / Songwriter at the Manifest awards.

    Since 2009, Daniel Norgren has toured all across Europe, Scandinavia and has even visited the United States. On stage he plays his guitar and drums at the same time, and is joined by Anders Grahn on upright bass and Pelle Nyhage on the organ.

    In late September 2011, a new EP “Black Vultures” was released, including the track “Moonshine Got Me” amongst others. The 6 track EP is a studio quality live recording that was recorded for Mark Lamarr’s “God’s Jukebox” program on BBC Radio 2.

    “If blues singer Robert Johnson actually sold his soul to the Devil to become the world’s best guitarist, as legend has it, Daniel Norgren has probably offered the latter a similar deal.” – Roskildefestivalen

Jørn Åleskjær (N)
    Saturday February 18, 2012 12:00am - 12:30am @ Nokia teltet, annex
    Jørn Åleskjær finally makes his solo debut after having been a songwriter for four studio albums with Loch Ness Mouse as well as having worked with the likes of Brooklyn based band The Ladybug Transistor and somewhat closer to home, I Was A King. A whole host of members of the extended “family” feature heavily on the record. The album features a duet with Elvira Nikolaisen and former Loch Ness Mouse member Emil Nikolaisen (Serena Maneesh) who plays drums, bass and guitar. Likewise another ex-Loch Ness Mouse man, Håvard Krogedal (I Was A King, Serena Maneesh, Mirror Lakes) plays most of the bass parts on the record. Other players include Gary Olson (The Ladybug Transistor), Fred Strand (Lionheart Brothers, I Was A King, The Loch Ness Mouse) and Rebekka Markstein (Maribel). The record is produced by Jørn’s brother Ole Johannes Åleskjær. The record’s musical reference points range from Todd Rundgren-like 70s pop-sould to Beach Boys type orchestral antics, but at the very core of Jørn Åleskjær’s music is, as characterised by the duet with Elvira “I’m so glad I spent this day with you”, muted Dennis Wilsonesque tender pop.

Emilio (N)
    Saturday February 18, 2012 2:00am - 2:30am @ Nokia teltet, annex
    Emilio is an unknown artist for many people in Norway, but the 20-year-old rapper from Oslo has been behind the scenes of the music industry in Norway for many years. With an active participation in Gatekunst (Street Art) Projects and releases by Sama D, Emilio started a humble but solid career when he was just eleven years old. He has done warmup gigs for Karpe Diem, Madcon, Lars Vaular, Lloyd Banks, Ken Ring, Gatas Parlament, and the future looks promising for the young artist. Emilio is a part of the creative collective “BAWS”, and you may have seen him in Baws videos with rappers such as Phil T Rich, Rob Banks and Aon. In the first week of September 2011, his first EP, “While You Were Sleeping,” was released. “While You Were Sleeping” is a reflection of everyday life with influences from a very colorful environment, and describes moods and love. The title is inspired by a sense of being underrated and “slept on”, and perhaps it is due time to wake up and download Emilio – “While You Were Sleeping”.

Kaveh (N)
    Saturday February 18, 2012 11:00pm - 11:30pm @ Nokia teltet, annex
    Despite his young age, one can safely say that the Oslo rapper Kaveh has worked his way to being one of the hottest names in Oslo’s underground hip-hop scene.

The line-up in 2012 features Stockholm-based singer Johanna Kalén, founding member / key composer Marko Nyberg and guitarist Antony Bentley. In addition to their exciting live performances, the plan is to release several audio and music releases during the year.

I Got You On Tape (DK)
    Sunday February 19, 2012 1:00am - 1:30am @ Nokia teltet, annex
    “We believe that you have the ability to write big, important songs, and to reach a much larger audience” was the justification when I Got You On Tape in January 2010 received the prestigious P3 Gold Award. An award that was the beginning of a new musical journey for the band. With two sold-out tours in Denmark during the past year, SXSW concerts and a successful Benelux tour, the band has now truly tapped hole in the abscess. From being indie darlings and critic’s favorites, yet still a well kept secret for the few, they are now establishing themselves as an international name. Eighteen months after receiving the P3 Gold Award I Got You On Tape are finally ready to unveil what they’ve been working on, and a first taste of their new album is ready in the form of single “Run From The Rain”. As a natural response to I Got You On Tape’s last and very introspective album “Spinning For The Cause” the band members have applied a brighter and more open expression. Keyboards are used far more explicitly than previously, and the sampled drums takes the tempo on the record up a notch. Several of the heavy and dark layers are pealed away to achieve a simpler, more playful sound, still with the characteristic I Got You On Tape-feeling and with Jacob Bellens sonorous vocals as the focal point. “Church Of The Real” was released in September 2011 hitting number one in the Danish album charts.

Reptile Youth (DK)
    Sunday February 19, 2012 2:00am - 2:30am @ Nokia teltet, annex
    This band is so awesome they haven’t even released one single track. Instead the two renegades Esben Valløe and Mads Damsgaard Kristiansen in Reptile Youth have focused on honing their sonic cocktail with frequent brushes with the law and a musical horror show at every concert that makes everyone go crazy. You would most definetely do the same. In September Reptile Youth recorded their debut album in London with Dave M. Allen (The Cure, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk) and Marc Ralph (Lady Gaga, Hot Chip). Reptile Youth have already played Iceland Airwaves, Roskilde Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival, Trailer Park Festival, Spot Festival, Reeberbahn Festival, Berlin Independent Night amongst others.
