Jiska Huizing & Rudi Valdersnes
Jiska Huizing (NL/NO) is an artist, musician and DJ based in Oslo; Rudi
Valdersnes (NO) a musician, DJ and producer based in Bergen, Norway.
Together they make club music for the edges of the dance floor. Their
music together is playful and grounded in the organic, based on improvisation, and often built with rhythms and sounds coming from
Valdersnes' home-made percussion instruments and Huizing's field
In 2018, they released their first collaboration, Drum & Trails, which finds its core in the melodies and rhythms of sheep bells. This record was followed by IDE002 in 2019, containing 4 tracks that each take place in a different location and space. Both releases are recorded live and contain experimental club music that builds on hypnotic rhythms, flirts with the electroacoustic and sometimes hints toward ambient. This year, Huizing & Valdersnes were selected for SHAPE's artist roster 2021-2022.
Together with Julie Silset, Huizing and Valdersnes also run the record label Ideophone Records.
