Olle Abstract | Keecen | MC Kaman
Olle Abstract curates a night of music between the stage and the booth with a host of new- and established Norwegian music acts as he segues a soundtrack from new Norwegian sounds to the great beyond as accompaniment. The DJ and radio host has a finger firmly on the pulse of this music, playing through the unadulterated classics of House music to the latest from Norwegian shores. He counterpoints MC Kaman, in the basement playing a heady onslaught of guilty pleasures for the steppers at Nightflight. Saturday is a day of contrasts, between an accessible melody and the primordial beat, with a focus on the dance floor. Ever the iconoclast, there’s no musical taboo that MC Kaman is willing to accommodate and the music in his record box is the music of an innocent youth, carefree and unperturbed by the opinion of others. There is no irony to be found here… only a good time in the company of good, popular music.

He’s a nonpartisan tastemaker that is as comfortable in the company of the latest pop sensation as he is sampling the delicacies from House music’s more obscure origins. His monthly podcast, LYD in which he introduces us to new Norwegian music is an imperative part of our ongoing musical education at Jæger and when we do have the honour of his larger than life presence in our booth, we’re always amazed by the versatility of the DJ. His mixes burn through the rings of Space Disco, passes by the lunar stations of Afro-Beat, and gets sucked into the black-hole of acid into the furthest possible dimensions of House, Techno and Disco.
From the edge of the Arctic circle, Keecen rises with his Tromsø-funk sounds showcasing warmth and musical diversity from an otherwise cold and monotone habitat. In the deep and snowy footsteps of great Norwegian artists such as Röyksopp, Biosphere, and Bjørn Torske, Keecen paves the way for a new generation of Tromsø-based artists. With a forthcoming EP on Mhost Likely Green, ‘Midnight City Joints’, the producer and DJ is nothing but a Nordic Funk phenomenon, smoothly blending warm sound combinations, from soul samples to groovy basslines, and piano melodies into well-produced electronic records for your heart and soul. It’s a sound that comes together perfectly to create a warm feeling that is deeply grounded in the Scandinavian house music traditions. Keecen has previously released a series of tracks under different aliases and worked with labels such as Mhost Likely, Full Pupp, Paper Recordings and lately his own imprint Mellom.
A larger than life figure and one of the proprietors of Oslo’s “hard core clubbing” (sic) institution, MC Kaman might play underground, but his sole purpose in life is cultivating a convivial atmosphere. His CD cases quite literally bulge with guilty pleasures and affable arrangements from the charts. There’s no musical taboo that MC Kaman is not willing to accommodate and the music he plays. There is no irony to be found in an MC Kaman set… only a good time in the company of good popular music. MC Kaman POPs!
