This is the debut single on 'Moshi Moshi' from diskJokke! and here is a
quick bio on him...
Hailing from the small town of Svelvik, located just southwest of Oslo,
Norway -- an unlikely but proven city to breed and export influential
electro artists -- Joachim Dyrdahl, otherwise known as diskJokke, makes
acid house beats perfect for moving dancefloors and lays down chilled
cinematic pop ideal for lounging. At five years old Dyrdahl started
playing the violin, and at 14 he started spinning records. After going
to school to study mathematics in a Trondheim university, he relocated
to Oslo and started combining his classical and electro-disco
backgrounds as a producer. He met up with Prins Thomas, who released
two of diskJokke's tracks as 12" singles on his Full Pupp label. As
word spread, Get Physical offered to put out two more of his 12"s on
the label's Kindish imprint. He took the position of resident DJ at one
of Norway's premier clubs, and appeared on a Sunkissed compilation,
resulting in subsequent offers to do remixes for other artists.
Eventually, one of these led to a connection at Smalltown Supersound,
an up-and-coming label that put out discs by Lindstr°m (one of
Dyrdahl's main inspirations). After picking ten of his most groovy
tracks, Smalltown released his first full-length Staying In in Norway
in late 2007, and overseas in February of 2008. An 11-minute diskJokke
remix of Bloc Party's "Sunday" was scheduled for release later that
year on Vice Records.
