FRIDAY
Frædag: Todd Edwards

Todd Edwards | g-HA & Olanskii | Øyvind Morken | Jokke & Jesper Dahl 

One of the greatest amongst the greatest Todd Edwards comes to Jaeger!  Another legend joins the Frædag alumni and this is one for the books. You don’t earn the moniker “The God” likely but Todd Edwards owns it. From the first day, Todd Edwards was the original godfather of UK Garage, and he saw all he created, and it was good! He redefined Sundays for a whole generation of Britains as the sound of speed garage. Recently he’s enjoying a resurgence through a stack of re-issues on Defected and it’s in this momentum we’re bringing him to Oslo. g-HA & Olanskii pull out all the stops, inviting the legend to take on the wall of bass while the residents are int he sauna.

Todd Edwards

Very early in his career, Todd developed a unique way of utilising sampling, particularly vocals, and would often use this technique instead of a musical instrument in his productions. This hypnotic collage of cut-up samples over swung beats and lively disco-flavoured baselines helped set him apart from many of his peers. It resulted in him being credited as one of the godfathers of UK Garage, being referred to as Todd ‘The God’ Edwards amongst fans. A succession of releases followed over the years, cementing the admiration fans and producers alike have for Todd, each track highlighting his unique production style.

Respected and idolised by fans and peers worldwide, Todd’s discography is a staggering list of productions which in 2020 will see 140+ records reissued by Defected Records, a label Todd has a strong bond with. In 2019 Todd made his debut on Defected Records with ‘You’re Sorry’, which charted at #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart. The follow-up single ‘Deeper,’ a collaboration with Sinden, soon followed to great success.

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.
