g-HA celebrates his birthday in December. The resident and DJ legend has played a significant part in establishing house music in Norway. We look forward to honouring him and his career today. Back when he started, it came from outer space! A sound crafted from the groovy fundamentals of Disco, expropriated through a wormhole of technology and spat out on the dance floor on the other side. They called it House music, and as it continues to fork off into the many tendrils that touch everything from Techno to Pop music we still pay homage to the archetypes every Frædag. Prins Thomas leads the procession of Norwegian House music icons into the night with g-HA & Olanskii and Øyvind Morken, bringing their own interpretation to Jaeger’s DJ booths.

Prins Thomas’ contribution to the Oslo music scene is unmatched, but his beginnings are humble. Back, way back in time, he started playing around as a DJ at a puerile age. Viewed as an extension of his break-dancing efforts, belt-driven turntables were enough to support his mix of hip hop, electro and an array of Arthur Baker’s and Shep Pettibone’s jewels. That passion for the music and the legacy of places like paradise garage has been channelled through every aspect of Prins Thomas’ being. Through his label Full Pupp and through his sets he is a musical connoisseur with unparalleled skills in the booth.
g-HA & Olanskii
Two pivotal bodies in the sphere of Norwegian electronic music, g-HA & Olanskii are an event, a club, a DJ duo, and a musical authority for Norway. Individually adept as DJ, selectors and tastemaker, Ola “Olanskii” Smith-Simonsen and Geir “g-HA” Holger’s musical voices unified for Sunkissed, an events series that has become the backbone of Oslo’s electronic music scene and beyond.
Oslo`s Øyvind Morken (pronounced Oy-vind) has a unique ability to play everything from A to Z of what genres concern. Working the dance floor in the most unexpected ways. For the last nine years he has held down a residency at Jaeger. Eight of them weekly under the Untzdag banner, a wordplay for Onsdag, Norwegian for Wednesday. It became an institution in Oslo. Drawing in a crowd of open-minded party freaks for nights of wild abandon, and where musical diversity and self-expression was encouraged.
