Northern Disco Lights Hits London

What were clubs playing before they got switched on to dance music?”
“Mostly shit music”

The untold story of a group of teenagers from the remote cities of Bergen and Tromsø set off a chain of events that transform their country.

We are truly excited to announce the screening of the incredible documentary, Northern Disco Lights. In a country where the ripples of disco were never able to reach, it takes an entire new generation to discover the unstoppable force of dance music.

The first half of this evening will feature the Northern Disco Lights screening, beginning at 8pm sharp and with just 200 tickets available. Followed by a Q+A with the film’s creators and Lindstrom and Bjorn Torske who feature in the film.

After the screening, we’ll be throwing a party til the early hours. With Norwegian space-disco wizard, Lindstrom, performing live along with fellow Norwegian cosmic disco star Bjorn Torske. North London duo Idjut Boys, Bill Brewster and resident Dorado. To complete this cosmic lineup is Flash Atkins, director of the Northern Lights film.

Rune Lindbaek 1997 DJ Mix

Paper Recordings chum and mad professor Rune Lindbaek has found a mix from back in the day so GET IT HERE

I’ll let him explain!

I almost never make mixtapes but I made this one to my very good friend DJ Robin Jackson on a DAT in the legendary hot summer of 1997. We both had completely, utterly forgotten about this until it resurfaced tonight!

It’s a collection of some of the biggest tunes for me at that time, semi-sloppy and hazy ‘white widow’ mixed in the first take, containing a healty dose of Harvey, Idjuts and friends, Those Norwegians and my first solo 12″,  that I often played at places like Skansen, Jazid and Headon etc. in Oslo but also when guesting Sankys Soap and Roundhouse in Manchester – and Plastic People in London. These kind of tunes was also the basis for Klubb Kebabb (1999-2001).

I’m really glad Robin found this mixtape. Please push in the loudness button and play it loud!!
