Skatebård | g-HA & Olanskii
Born in a crimewave in 1989, raised on the dirty beats of Hip Hop and travelling between Disco, House and Psychedelic Techno, Skatebård is back at Jaeger. g-HA & Olanskii constitute the welcome wagon, as Frædag invites it’s first non-Oslo guest of the post-lockdown era. The backyard sound system has been stretching its legs all summer, with our residents and local guests playing under the firmament of an endless dawn, and as we open up our doors further afield Skatebård travels from Bergen to our courtyard to do what he does best.
Clubbing in the time of a pandemic
This is not going to be a summer like every other, as we continue to grapple with a pandemic that has had an incredible impact on our culture and has completely changed everyday life in our society. As covid-19 regulations relax, however we can stay open a little longer, push the volume a little louder and eek out the tempos a little further, but we’re still operating under a limited capacity with seating room only. Table service is in effect, but there’s some room for movement now and on reserved nights we’ll be accommodating a social-distancing dance floor in our basement, while our weekly residencies continue to pursue a virtual dance floor from expanding record collections.
We’re streaming everything live across our two floors throughout July as we continue to adapt to the situation. You can stream every set live from mixcloud.com/JaegerOslo/ with selected episodes from Ticketco and our facebook page, archiving the odd recording from our youtube or mixcloud accounts.
Skatebård is a national treasure. The Norwegian producer of all things electronic staked his claim with his debut LP “Skateboarding was a crime in 1989” and never looked back from there..Connoisseurs know that his catalogue oscillates between emotional techno, neo-italo, electro from an alternative future and a Scando-cosmic reinterpretation of pure Detroitian house which he channels into enigmatic and enthusiastic DJ sets that have one him the acclaim from the international Dj community and its audience.
