Following the success of Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas comes diskJokke, a.k.a. Joachim Dyrdahl, the latest in a string of exciting and innovative artists hailing from the respected Oslo electronica scene. diskJokke was discovered by Oslo-Disco luminary Prins Thomas, who immediately signed three tunes to his Full Pupp label. Almost simultaneously in Germany, M.A.N.D. Y and the Get Physical gang signed diskJokke for five other tunes to their new Get Physical sub label, Kindisch. Following these releases, word quickly spread about diskJokke’s quirky, spaced-out and dubby mixture of house, Italo and disco, and he was soon asked to remix tunes for a number of artists, including Lindstrøm, Lykke Li and Bloc Party. In the years to follow he has released three albums, one which was nominated to the Norwegian Grammy award, and had his music used in films and TV shows such as the Banksy movie “Exit Through the Gift Shop” and HBO’s ”Bored to Death” while producing 60-70 remixes for people like David Lynch, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Crystal Castles, Foals and Sander Kleinenberg.
