One of Norway’s most coveted emerging producers, Pandreas, is set to play next week’s Ja Ja Ja club night in London.
Young Bergen resident Andreas Kleven Rasmussen, aka Pandreas, has released three acclaimed EPs over the last six months; last autumn’s ‘Rås’ and ‘Rube’ as well as ‘Beluga’ released through Sellout Music! in April. The EPs mirror his live performances that bear the mark of a confident musician that delves into disco/house/electro jams that are wonderfully insular sounding, giving his tracks an introspective feel beneath their club-friendly sensibilities.
Pandreas’ Beluga EP, released in early April, has racked up an impressive array of reviews:
“… palpably ambitious, adventurous long-form disco that’s unafraid to eschew easy brightness for a darker, more tempestuous atmosphere.” – PITCHFORK
“The result is almost cinematic” – THE PLAYGROUND.
“Thrilling, edgy and brilliantly intense, it’s a mightily impressive introduction.” – GOLD FLAKE PAINT
“Typical (i.e. amazing) Norwegian atmospheric/epic disco from Bergen based Pandreas.” – 2014.se
