Sprutbass comes straight out of the Scandinavian Skweee scene centered around Dødpop Records. Keeping with the central tenets of the sound Sprtubass produces odd, spaced out sounds of vintage synth leads over funky old school beats and heavy synthbass. His 2010 reimagining of Jaga Jazzist's 'One-Armed Bandit' sounds as if three million synths are riding to Valhalla on the back of a giant mechanical bird built on the offcuts of Chic's leather jackets. Sprutbass is set to release his debut EP on Dødpop September 1. 2012. The EP is mixed and produced in collaboration with the Norwegian producer and DJ Prins Thomas.
Sprutbass has done extensive touring all over Europe and the US the last years as a proud swordsman representing the Norwegian skweee- movement, hammering his old synths and samplers - filling floors at clubs in New York, Brighton, Barcelona, Paris, Vienna and Oslo, and rocking out festivals like Roskilde, Øya, Slottsfjell and NuMusic. Sprutbass is set to release his debut EP on Dødpop September 1. 2012. The EP is mixed and produced in collaboration with the Norwegian producer and dj Prins Thomas.
Some words from the Press
"Here at XLR8R, we've had our ears blown away by the recent skweee sounds coming from Scandinavia. A new compilation from one of the genre's flagship labels (dødpop, edt.remarks) features this monster, a squeaky, anthemic take on dubstep rhythms featuring frenetic synth modulations and acidy flourishes. Watch out for future Sprutbass releases, as his diversity of influences and textures is quickly making him one of the stars of the Oslo scene..."
".........it sounds like a more uptempo and cheesy version of dubstep, where the swaying and unpredictable rythms is kept, but the main expression is more humorous and smart. The best synth- work since the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack! Ingenious!......" - Tiger 09
"........- one of this years highligths on the Øya-festival.."
".........Label stalwarts Beatbully and Sprutbass turn in an impressive myriad of jerky beats and crazy filtered synths, all bathed in a hip-hop feel......” - Matt Earp,
