Northern Disco Lights – The Rise and Rise of Norwegian Dance Music – really cool new documentary about the rise of the Norwegian electronic dance music scene, affectionately known as “Trømso-techno” or “Space Disco”. It also has an awesome soundtrack featuring artists like Biosphere, Bjørn Torske, Prins Thomas, Mungolian Jet Set, Mental Overdrive, Rune Lindbæk, Lindstrøm and more!
Northern Disco Lights tells the untold story of a group of teenagers in the arctic city of Tromsø, who set off a chain of events that would go on to transform their country. To escape the boredom of growing up in a remote outpost they created their own music scene, setting up radio stations, parties, building synthesizers and making tunes. Word spread as like-minded souls recognised the call to arms and inspired a generation of kids who would go on to change dance music and Norway forever.
