Biography

Norwegian producer and DJ originally from Tromsdalen, Norway. Torske’s debut release was the “T.O.S. EP” compilation where he appeared as Alegria and with Ole Johan Mjøs as Radikal Buzz. Torske and Mjøs then formed Ismistik and released 3 EPs on Djax, as well as collaborating with Rune Lindbæk in Open Skies and Volcano. Torske then moved to Bergen and continued Ismistik as a solo project without Mjøs, recording the classic “Remain” album which was released in 1995. Ismistik seems to have been abandoned since then, Torske preferring to record under his own name, occasionally using the Krisp moniker for his more techno-ish ventures.

    I find this quote particularly appropriate: "We are the music makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;— World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams: Yet we are the movers and shakers Of the world for ever, it seems."

    "Kokning" is an incredibly accessible album to have come from the Norwegian space disco scene. I might have found the gateway drug for my unconverted friends.

    "Soloppgang Over Yukigaya" may very well lay claim to the best song to come out of the Norway-centered space disco scene. No lie.

    All my covers say Bjørn Torske, as does his myspace. And it's the correct norwegian way to type it. No need for voting.

    It's a very good album. Good late summer/early autumn music. :)
