Oscar Mulero (PoleGroup/Warm Up) | Shifted (Mote Evolver, Avian, UK) | G-Ha & Olanskii - Jaeger/Sunkissed/Oslo | RLOC
Techno lands at Jæger in an absolute show of its force, the likes of which has never descended on Oslo before. Featuring not one, but two of its most significant contributors, Frædag and G-Ha & Olanskii has given the keys to our basement to Oscar Mulero and Shifted, as two of the leading lights of the genre for a night that promises to be like no other booking.
Oscar Mulero’s DJ career has been as prolific and long lasting as the development of dance music. As a key figure in the evolution of electronic music, Oscar has always absorbed new trends and kept his finger on the pulse of electronic dance music right up to the present day. His tireless work behind the decks since almost 3 decades, today is an uncompromising sound of Techno.
A prolific producer in his own right he has been making waves since 2000, with his first solo outing on the French label Kobayashi, while at the same time establishing his own labels Warm Up and its subsidiary POLE nowadays called PoleGroup. All Oscar’s efforts has focused on releasing his own material, whether home or away, on the very best TECHNO labels on the planet, such as Coda, Pure Plastic, Tresor, Sheep, Main Out, Semantica, MORD, Token, Detroit Underground, Modularz, Soma, Warm Up and Polegroup and establishing the name Oscar Mulero in the upper echelon of Techno artists.
Today Oscar Mulero's international career has definitely been secured, a favourite regular at some of the best festivals and clubs in Europe, while expanding his area of influence to North and South America and Asia, making his next stop at Jæger with Shifted.
Since inception, Brewer’s Shifted moniker has grown into a unique yet encompassing mastery of sound and space, texture and tonalities — a pure spirit of experimentalism with a foundational functionality. From his debut on Luke Slater’s Mote Evolver label, to Dominick Fernow’s (Vatican Shadow) Bed Of Nails and to his recent recordings for his own smartly curated imprint, Avian (home to techno experiments from Alessandro Cortini’s Skarn, Peder Mannerfelt, SHXCXCHCXSH, and more) Brewer’s work radiates in its’ capacity to meld to context and circumstance without artistic compromise, and at once to colour outside purist lines, pushing boundaries and provoking thought in a call to progressive techno, electronic, noise and experimental music as a whole. In this versatility there is a steadfast dedication to a perpetual movement forward — arguably leaving Brewer to embody a pure, unadulterated spirit of what it means to be an electronic musician: a rebel artist treading new territories with a fascination and fixation to craft brilliance with a new noise.
RLOC rounds off the lineup in our courtyard with G-Ha & Olanskii, as Frædag makes room for the two Techno stalwarts down below. Focussing on a more varied palette of music, G-Ha & Olanskii and RLOC will be our shallow end for the evening, allowing us to dip our toes into club music, before we plunge head first into the subterranean level with Oscar Mulero and Shifted.
