Norway’s biggest producer/DJ export is coming home. Finnebassen brings a new residency to Jaeger, tracing the footsteps through House music on Thursdays. Ever since breaking into the dance floor charts with his 2012 hit “If you only knew,” the DJ and artist has been an unstoppable force in the world of electronic dance music in Norway and beyond. Respecting the work of his peers, he lists artists such as Maceo Plex, Solomun, Art Department and all of the major players in house music of today as his influences, it is his own version of bass heavy house by which he intends to impress and has. Touring the world on the strength of his releases, playing to festival crowds and intimate clubs alike from Europe to Asia, and Australia to the USA, Finnebassen has carved out a niche career from the DJ booth with people lining up around the block for his all-night sets back home.
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.
Leaving his teenage genre hopping days behind him, 2008 saw a house music epiphany, as a deep rooted interest in electronic music began, bringing Finnebassen to the sound he relays today. Although he has been producing music and playing gigs in his hometown of Oslo for a long time, 2012 saw his first releases, which gained huge support and landed him at the top of the beatport charts. You will regularly find Finnebassen touring the world; he has played to crowds from Europe to Asia, and Australia to USA.
