Biography

Ørjan Nilsen, born the 14th of June 1982 in Kirkenes in Norway, started his interest in music at an early age. He started banging on drum sets at the age of 1 and was thoroughly instructed by his father and brother for the first 9 years of his life.

At the age of 7, Ørjan got his first keyboard, and started to practice on it every single day for the next couple of years, but started to think this little keyboard lacked what he was looking for… And then it began…

Melodies and rhythm were increasingly becoming a more important part of Ørjan’s life as he was reaching for the teen years. And one style in particular caught his attention more then anything else… TRANCE After listening to various Trance compilations from Holland, he now started to be more and more mesmerized by this unique sound which merged beautiful melodies and rhythmic patterns so beautifully. Ørjan wanted to make this as well, but with the lack of funds and the knowledge how to, stopped him from it for a couple of years.

At the age of 16, Ørjan got his first very own synthesizer, with onboard sequencer and drum machine, and from now on, things were evolving quite rapidly.

He learned how to set up drums, basslines, melodies, strings and chords on his synth and then also how making music really worked.

After a year, he learned how making music on a pc worked, and what magic that was contained in a small grey box…

Evolving in his productions year after year, Ørjan now decided to take things a step further and bought more equipment to make his tunes reach another level

    Most of his new stuff isn't too good. If you want more like Violetta, try Viking if you haven't heard it yet.

    such a talented producer, though my favourite will always be La Guitarra (Balearic Mix)

    Violetta is a step in the right direction from Orjan, it's much better than his previous tracks.

    Orjan Nilsen - Copperfield (Original Mix): Decent synth melody based break in a noisy, raucous Tech Trance sandwich. “Magic”? Try ‘generic’. Has potential and could be improved by a decent remixer. 6.5/10 - More Reviews at www.trancefixxed.co.uk / @TranceFixxed
