It’s a Norwegian lineup on the home-front for this edition of Frædag as g-HA & Olanskii hand the night over to some local guests and residents. Frædag’s window to the world looks towards home with Charlotte Bendiks and Olefonken in the sauna while Simon Field and Blichfeldt are back together in the basement after the release of Simon’s debut LP two months ago. And Simon is not the only one with a recent release under their belt, as Charlotte Bendiks heads here off the back of her Optimo release, “I’m Home, I’m OK.”

She likes dogs, Jacuzzis, riding a bike, bålkos, å få napp, her own oceans of emotions, hummus, Rhabarbersaftschorle, free WiFi, Mezcal, dark days and dark nights, talking fast, dancing slow, serious shit, funny shit, singing, getting dirty, staying away, getting close, going hard, being active, being passive, being together, being there, getting it all. A DJ, a producer, and a positive thinker, she spent the last years exploring music, people, life and places. Playful and silly, and therefore confident and sexy, whether as a DJ or playing live, her music is deep, dark, and psychedelic.
Meera grew up with house music blaring from her dad’s basement. Being surrounded by music – it wasn’t long till she tried her hand at it at 13 and fell in love. Meera has always been an all-embracing soul, with some early influences being Burial, J Dilla, and Daft punk for their unorthodox approach to production. Her DJing and productions are clear reflections of her and her taste. Blending afro- and latin rhythms with janky house grooves, strange off-beat lead instruments, and rich enveloping pianos. In 2023 she released her debut single “Music For Humans” which immediately found it’s way on the setlists of DJs like Black Coffee, Damian Lazarus, &Me, and Jimi Jules, to name a few. And her followup is already making the rounds, setting 2023 up as an exciting start to a blossoming Meera.
Olefonken is a musical savant. A musician, an artist, a producer, a DJ, a label owner and a promoter, he embraces and works in every faction of music. An eclectic soul, Olefonken’s rich biography is reflected in his work in the booth. He first started making music, playing in various bands in school, and eventually formed hubbabubbaklubb. hubbabubbaklubb got a lot of early attention with their single Mopedbart, which they followed up in 2018 with the acclaimed LP, drømmen drømmerne drømmer. While working in that group Olefonken has concurrently established a career as a solo artist with two EPs Quaaludes and Till Hanne finding the ears of Norwegian listeners and audiences abroad.

With a still young name in the clubbing scene, the Oslo based DJ Blichfeldt. is interpreting the gap between house and techno from the booth, he is known for his deep and minimalistic, percussion heavy sets, with groovy bass lines, and a teethy sound. His specific style has already given him high recognition from prominent producers, DJ’s and club owners in his local scene.
