KSMISK were back at Jæger this week, but it was not in the role you’d expect. The production alter-ego and from Oslo stalwarts, Trulz and Robin, is a studio and live project, but this past Sunday they stepped into the booth in Jæger’s courtyard to lay down a DJ mix for the Jæger mix series.
It’s a mix that moves from beguiling atmospheres to abstract noise, sculpting a narrative from the chasm of primordial impulses to the sublime as it paces through the hour. There’s a stark, intimidating overtone that embraces the outer fringes of the lattice like percussive movements of acts like Psyk and Antigone, finding some common trope between the selections and the atmospheric sounds of KSMISK.
The mix follows the release of their much-anticipated LP, Mikrometeorittene on PLOINK and an upcoming live show at Sommerøya where Trulz and Robin will be re-united on stage as a duo. You can find out more about the group in our interview with them from earlier this year, and you can read the follow up to that interview down below, where there’s talk of a new album, Surgeon, silence and cheap records.
“Come dance with us.”
Hello KSMISK. What’s been the musical highlight for you, since releasing the debut album?
One thing we got from that interview: You’re playing on the same stage as Surgeon for Sommerøya, something we know you’re looking forward to, completing a circle for the KSMISK project. What was it about that sound that stuck with you through all these years?
Surgeon has always been a inspiration for us not only for his off-beat Techno but also for his coolness and good looks. We are very much looking forward to playing at the same festival the Surgeon and hope to meet him.
Only good music .
It’s the cheap record: Keimola ep
Thermionic culture vulture
Dogs and biking at night, silence.
Come dance with us.
