After a world premiere in Bergen at last month’s film festival, join us for the Tromsø premiere (and second venue worldwide) of the film that explores one of the surprise big influences in club music: Tromsø!
Norway wasn’t traditionally known to be a large player in dance music or club culture, so it was a surprise to everyone when Norwegian club music began to gain popularity in the 1990s. A small but creative group of artists emerged out of Tromsø and Bergen in particular, including Mental Overdrive, Bjørn Torske, Röyksopp, Eroy and Annie. This documentary tells the story of the unique Norwegian sound and how it redefined international dance music, turning club sounds into what we know today.
There will be a Q&A session with the producer and filmmakers held after the film screening.
