Vinter in Hollywood a.k.a. Aleksander Vinter
Norwegian musician, born in the 80's, and composer and producer behind the epic electrofunk project Vinter in Hollywood.
In July 2007 Vinter dubbed the industrial noise/club that went down in the studio, Vinter in Hollywood. Later that summer a Noir video was created for the song "pain control".
Raised in the extreme metal and trance scene of the 2000 era, the influences were many. The diversity of his sound was nailed when the french disco scene came to Vinter's attention in 2001. And on top of this movement in France, the inspirations were clearly bound to 80's electrofunk and breakdance music.
In January 2008 he made "Virus", which was broadcast almost immediately after arrival at the radio station NRK P3, Norway's biggest radio channel for youngsters and hip new music. The receptions were wide and diverse but, all in all, it seemed to be the start of something big.
Since then a lot has happened in VIH HQ, an album soon to come, being nominated for the prestigious award "Årets Urørt", which is an annual award for young upcoming Norwegian artists.
