Aslak Hartberg's The Fuzz

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The wider public will know him as Alis from Klovner i Kamp. Jazz aficionados will remember him as the bassist from Shining and Jon Eberson Quartet, Now, ten years after his previous release, he is back with a project which putting it very simply, is a bit of a roundup of what he’s been up to musically in the interim. Get ready for sampled beats, massive synths and experimental basslines, but not without some catchy licks of course. There are two reference points that are clear as day here: Kanye West and Miles Davis. Davis’ 1985 release “Tutu” is a record that Hartberg always points to in interviews. A record where Miles Davis has a field day over the contemporary programed backing tracks by producer Marcus Miller. Likewise Kanye, the boundary breaking hip-hop producer was also a key role model for the project. With some wacky programming, dancey beats and nigh on shameless use if taboo effects like autotune and ostentatious 80s sound West is an obvious inspiration. Aslak Hartberg is a composer and author as well as a rapper and a bassist. He’s won Spellemann awards for both his work with Klovner i Kamp and the rock band Yoga Fire. He also won a prestigious Alarm prize with Shinning, TONO’s Edvard award for best film soundtrack for his performance at the Kosmorama Trondheim international film festival in 2008. He’s done soundtracks for films such as ”Kompani Orheim”, ”I et speil i en gåte”, ”Keeper’n til Liverpool” and ”Tatt av kvinnen” as well as the Danish TV series “Pakten”.
The line-up on the record is Sjur Miljeteig (trumpet), Bugge Wesseltoft (keys) and Aslak Hartberg (bass, vocals and other instruments).
