Dirty melancholic house music is the produce of much musical soul searching for Norwegian DJ Finnebassen. Leaving his teenage genre-hopping days behind him, 2008 saw a house music epiphany, as a deep rooted interest in electronic music began, bringing Finnebassen to the sound he relays today.
Although he has been producing music and playing gigs in his hometown of Oslo for many years, 2012 has finally seen the first attacks of Finnebassen on the worldwide electronic music scene, in both performance and production.
UK label Electronique, took hold of his own production ‘If You Only Knew’ and provided remixes by Matt Fear, The Mekanism and Balcazar & Sordo. The original was seen prior to the full EP release and reached number 3 on the Beatport Nu Disco Chart.
Respecting the work of his peers, he lists artists such Maceo Plex, Solomun, Art Department and all of the major players in house music of today as his influences. But it is his own version of silky smooth house by which he intends to impress. As well as playing at massive Oslo night-spots Jaeger and The Villa, Finnebassen regularly plays international gigs, with recent visits to Berlin, Greece and appearances around the UK... and now Australia!
