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.

DJs – Bjørn Torske & Mental Overdrive

The official Northern Disco Lights after-party has two of Norway’s originators playing all night long at a brand new Dalston basement venue, Junction House.

Bjørn Torske is one of the world’s most unique producers and often called the Godfather of Norwegian dance music (or more recently the Codfather) with people like Todd Terje and Prins Thomas lining up to work with him. Behind the decks he stitches together leftfield disco wonk, house, techno, psychedelia and curveballs in to a dancefloor meltdown.

Alongside is the man who can claim to have kick-started the whole scene, Mental Overdrive has also witten the sound track for Northern Disco Lights. Although best known for techno Per Martinsen can slip between genres behind the decks and in the studio and continues to get booked everywhere from LA to Berlin.

This is a rare opportunity to hear two of Norway’s groundbreaking electronic pioneers performing together all night long.
