Biography

  • Bergen-Rimini-Chicago-Honolulu-Detroit-Jupiter-Manchester is the sonic route on which Telephones travel.
    Starting with primitive PC-software and DJing in the late 90s, Telephones debuted in his hometown Bergen, Norway at the turn of the century as an underage, snuck into clubs and put behind decks by the lively scene around Tellé Records. Since then he has equally focused on production and DJing, now with nearly 20 years experience behind the decks. A firm believer in quality over quantity, Telephones has released a sparse, but highly sought after discography on acclaimed underground-lables like Running Back, Sex Tags UFO, Acido, Klasse Wrecks, Love On The Rocks and Full Pupp. In 2015 he was responsible for production and remixing of Jose Padilla's much celebrated "Day One" single on International Feel, following up Telephones' sound and success of "The Ocean Called EP" from 2014, whereas the track "Blaff" became an international underground-hit, awarded as #16 on Resident Advisor's list of 2014's Best Tracks. In 2016 he released his debut album, "Vibe Telemetry" on Running Back, taking his eclecticism and sound one step further, expanding the palette with influences from early Norwegian club-roots, Ambient House, NY House and Disco, 90s UK Balearic, Italo House, Underground Resistance and Detroit Techno. The album received praise and reviews from publications such as XLR8R, Mixmag, iDJ, Future Music, Resident Advisor, DJ Mag and Testpressing. 2019 saw the birth of his new label, European Carryall, kicking off with the series "From The Vaults 1998-2018 Vol 1 & 2", the first 12" selling out in a matter of days. The last years has taken Telephones around the world with frequent tours in Asia, Australia and the Americas, playing diverse locations like Sao Paulo, Taipei, New York, Mexico City, Tokyo, and Melbourne, as well as frequently laying it down on his Berlin/EU home-turf at some of the best underground clubs like Berghain/Panorama Bar, Bassiani, Corsica Studios, Griessmuehle, Jaeger and festivals like Dimensions, The Garden, Love International, Nuits Sonores, Pitch and Splendour In The Grass.
