Biography

Xploding Plastix is the musical child of Jens Petter Nilsen and Hallvard Hagen. Both based in Oslo, they started making music together sometime in late ‘98 or early ‘99. After about a year of playing, sampling, programming and focused tune writing; they decided it was time to let the public hear what they’d been up to. This resulted in a 6 track demo in late ‘99. About 22 hours after first shipment, record companies were on the phone, and 4 months later, 5 out of 6 tracks had been released on various labels.

The duos debut album Amateur Girlfriends Go Proskirt Agents was released in 2001 via Norwegian label Beatservice. Subsequently they moved over to Sony and recorded The Doncamatic Singalongs, which was never released outside Scandinavia, despite the announcement of an international release date.

With this, Xploding Plastix took to different mediums for a few years, working on various short films, movies, TV, and radio-productions. Also starting up a side project “Electones”.

Xploding Plastix released a new album in September 2008 entitled Treated Timber Resists Rot on Beatservice Records. This is to be accompanied by a revisited re-release of The Donca Matic Singalongs which was not originally distributed outside of Scandinavia, and a new EP called Devious Dan featuring tracks from previous music videos.

Xploding Plastix has a very organic sound; throwing saccharine analogue melodies to foreground the acoustic quality; imposing a distinctive live feel. A certain raw edge. An oeuvre of an ear-opener: Zipping and unzipping the beat, a beat-science out-of the ordinary.
