Smalltown Supersound is proud to present our new signing Bendik Giske from Oslo, Norway.
In addition to original track Adjust this EP also contains remixes from his friends Total Freedom and Lotic, as well as Rezzett and Deathprod. The EP will be released 26. October on LP and digital.
Giske finds a natural home in Smalltown Supersound as he cites Lindstrom’s arpeggio sounds and Evan Parker’s circular breathing as references, both of whom have released on the label. By combining the two extreme sides of the scale, he seamlessly fuses free jazz and club music.
'I take the building blocks of electronic music and play it live—without layering or looping, to the best of my ability. All the faults of being human come through.”
The performance artist and saxophonist’s mesmerizing debut takes listeners on a true journey through the euphoria and wanderlust of nights spent clubbing—using little more than his voice, saxophone, his instrument of choice, and more than a few well-placed microphones.
“‘Adjust' represents a period of time when you adjust to your circumstances—when you get into it, before you’re into it,” says Giske. “I’d been playing different riffs and challenging myself to play something that lies well in the hand, so the approach was physical—what my body does as opposed to what I want to create.'
