MIKE SIMONETTI (Italians Do It Better rec.)
DOLLE JOLLE (Oslo - Permanent Vacation rec.)
Dølle Jølle is the newest tentacle to the evergrowing octopuss which some people might call the Oslo disco scene. He grew up in the dark and hilly woods of Mjøndalen - a place which has bred a another discoid producer and dj, namely the mighty Todd Terje. Dølle and Todd went to school together and soon became friends, sharing the same passion for the odd and enticing electronic music coming to rural Norway through the ether from djs such as Strangefruit, Rune Lindbæk and Prins Thomas. This sparked the first attempts at creating dance music with outdated computers and tracker software, and later record collecting and djing. Upon moving to Oslo in 2001 he soon got into the dj-culture and met many of the like-minded people in town. This further fueled the djing and record collecting, and since 2006 he has, together with his long-time friend Todd Terje, been running the club-night Shari Vari, which has hosted djs like Baldelli, Nishimura and Lindstrøm. Musically his biggest influences are the underground disco sounds of the late 70s and early eighties, though new electronic music and,more recently, prog, kraut and folk is an important part of the mixture.
