Tony Humphries

FRIDAY
Frædag: Tony Humphries + Kid Simius (live)

Tony Humphries | g-HA & Olanskii | Kid Simius (live)

The man, the myth, the legend, Tony Humphries takes his rightful place in our booth again for an all-nighter in another visit to Oslo for the honorary resident. Disco, House and the future of club music owes much of its existence to this DJ. From Disco’s heyday, he has been a barometer for the dance floor, playing an important role in establishing House music and the early days of the nightclub from his home in New York in New Jersey. Our yearly visit from Mr. Humphries comes with an all-night set in the sauna while Frædag’s g-HA & Olanskii hosts return guest Kid Simius in the basement.

Tony Humphries    

When thinking about Tony Humphries, you might be minded of his epic stint at KISS FM-NY as one of its greatest Mastermixers; or of his residency at one of the greatest US clubs, The Zanzibar; or, even, the walls that are lined with gold discs, from Indeep to Janet Jackson; or his legendary eclecticism for throwing whatever works into the mix, from The B-52’s or Rhythim Is Rhythim to Blaze. Heck, Tony Humphries is, of course, all of those things and more. But then, there’s the Tony of today, restless, questing, searching for new challenges

Tony Humphries has now been DJing nearly 35 years, an incredible achievement that in any other industry would have been rewarded with a carriage clock, service medal and a free bus pass. His lengthy stints at radio stations like Kiss FM were not simply an exercise in career furtherment, but a way of introducing new music and acts to the city of New York – and further afield, as a continuation of what he was doing at his weekly residency at the legendary Zanzibar.

Kid Simius

Adept, versatile, dedicated and full of positivity, Kid Simius is a wizkid who has dedicated himself to the ethos: ‘There are no labels, no tags, just music’. Born in Granada, Spain, and currently based in Berlin, Kid Simius circumvents genre limitations to embrace and merge a myriad styles. Delving into electronic music, ambient, surf-inspired electronica, Balearic, disco and lots more, this is an artist who puts good energy and human connection above genre labels

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.
