Geisha: Finnebassen (Fri 16/12)

Geisha presents Finnebassen

Dirty melancholic house music is the produce of much musical soul searching for emerging Norwegian star Finnebassen. 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 sees his first releases, as his creations are set to attack a scene which he has been passionate about for so long.

Finnebassen’s remix of Brandy track ‘Baby’ was picked up, and now soon to be released by UK based bloggers and label, The House of Disco.

Another UK label, Electronique, have taken hold of his own production ‘If You Only Knew’ and provided remixes by Matt Fear, The Mekanism and Balcazar & Sordo. The second track to what promises to be an impressive EP is already being worked on by Finnebassen. Purp & Soul Records have also jumped on board, releasing another of his tracks ‘I’m In Love With You’. The guitar you hear on both tracks is Finn himself playing: a note to his true understanding of music.

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 bass heavy house by which he intends to impress, as he also holds residencies at massive Oslo night spots Jaeger and The Villa.
