Leaving his teenage genre hopping days behind him, 2008 saw a house music epiphany, as a deep rooted interest in electronic music began, bringing Finnebassen to the sound he relays today.
Although he has been producing music and playing gigs in his hometown of Oslo for a long time, 2012 has finally seen the first attacks of Finnebassen on the worldwide electronic music scene, in both performance and production.
UK label Electronique, took hold of his own production ‘If You Only Knew’ and provided remixes by Matt Fear, The Mekanism and Balcazar & Sordo.
The original was seen prior to the full EP release and reached number 3 on the Beatport Nu Disco Chart.
May 2012 saw Finnebassen release two tracks on Noir Music’s “Second Chances and Romances EP”, entitled “Touching Me” and “Such a High”.
These releases have gained support from Solomun, Hot Since 82, Sasch BBC, Motorcitysoul, Atapy, Djuma Soundsystem, Alex Niggemann, Gabriel Sordo, Hunter/Game, The Mekanism, Blond:ish, Toky and MORE.
“Touching Me” reached the number one spot on Beatport’s Deep House chart, and was also played by Pete Tong, on Radio 1, in his ‘Wonderments’ section.
They have also featured his track ‘Bleedin Out’ on their recently released ‘House of Dikso’ compilation.
Warner Music are soon set to release a remix from Finnebassen of Parachute Youth – Can’t Get Better than This.
Respecting the work of his peers, he lists artists such Maceo Plex, Solomun, Art Department and all of the major players in house music of today as his influences.
But, it is his own version of silky smooth house by which he intends to impress.
As well as regularly playing at massive Oslo night spots Jaeger and The Villa, Finnebassen also has regular gigs worldwide, with recent visits to Berlin, Greece, Brazil and many appearances around the UK just to name a few.
