"Not only is his work bound by a love off of all things electronic, Atroxity’s work is marked by a playfulness, flair for groove and precision beat-work." - Barry Gruff Music Blog Never being one to adhere to any specific genre, Atroxity has evolved into a producer and composer of electronica across a multitude of styles. From hard hitting beats and playful arrangements to cinematic themes and ambient landscapes, the many facets are painted with a unique palette from his cyberpunk and post-apocalyptic universe. Atroxity has been a part of the media industry and the local clubbing scene since the nineties: A radio jockey for almost a decade, a club DJ since the turn of the century, and was the founder and the editor-in-chief for the main online concert and club culture magazine in Oslo since the mid 90s. The characteristic sound of his music is a symbiosis of the influences during all these decades: From childhood legends like Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Jean-Michel Jarre and Prince, the rise of club music in the late eighties (The KLF, Bomb The Bass, Coldcut, M/A/R/R/S), the thriving underground club scenes of the 90s and the house and techno genres that shaped the new century. Today he finds great inspiration amongst a wide range of his contemporaries, not only within the electronica genres but also modern jazz and alternative pop.
