Fehrplay | MC Kaman
Norway’s prodigal son returns to his roots after a long-awaited reprisal for a gig that never was from April 2020. The Norwegian producer and DJ whose star has risen over the North Sea from the west in England where he’s carved out an impressive career, arriving on the scene through the Pryda camp.
Saturday at Jæger is about guilty pleasures and heady dance floors. Saturday is a day of contrasts, between an accessible melody and the primordial beat, with a focus on the dance floor. MC Kaman is back in the cellar as we head into winter. Ever the iconoclast, there’s no musical taboo that MC Kaman is willing to accommodate and the music in his record box is the music of an innocent youth, carefree and unperturbed by the opinion of others. There is no irony to be found here… only a good time in the company of good popular music.
Never one to talk down his Norwegian roots, the life and times of Jonas Fehr have not been limited to one global locality. Taking to the dance mecca that is Manchester as a student, the young producer quickly found solstice in the city’s underground nightspots. Upon realisation that education could never provide the hands-on experience Jonas craved, a degree in music production was promptly replaced by a first-hand ascent of the UK club circuit. The pieces would form together to see ‘Meow’, Jonas’s breakout offering, rack a considerable milestone and the first of many seals of approval from Pete Tong. An infectious landmark by all counts, Fehrplay has gone on to emulate that initial thrill of industry approval into his every musical venture.
A larger than life figure and one of the proprietors of Oslo’s “hard core clubbing” (sic) institution, MC Kaman might play underground, but his sole purpose in life is cultivating a convivial atmosphere. His CD cases quite literally bulge with guilty pleasures and affable arrangements from the charts. There’s no musical taboo that MC Kaman is not willing to accommodate and the music he plays. There is no irony to be found in an MC Kaman set… only a good time in the company of good popular music. MC Kaman POPs!
