In today’s Internet age, it can be hard to decipher and segment cultures. Musically speaking, cultures have historically been subdivided mostly by genres and locales, but that’s becoming an increasingly hard challenge. As sounds and scenes meld across the globe in an unprecedented fashion via the Internet, stars can seemingly be born out hype and blogwork, but the reality is, some places really just have something going on in their water; Scandinavia certainly does. Sweden at the very least has played a significant role in the development of house music, and specifically their iteration of saccharine sweet progressive house (Eric Prydz, Avicii, Swedish House Mafia), but they are not the only ones. In the last couple years especially, Norway has emerged as it’s own electronic music hotspot. Today, some of the biggest and brightest are Norwegian. Check out these Norwegian electronic acts that you need to know.
