Charlotte Thorstvedt is a Norwegian model, DJ, and television host (with MTV and X factor among her hosting credits). Her latest endeavor is producing, and in February 2012 she released her debut album “Salome” on Universal Music Norway.Charlotte is also an sought-after DJ, and has spun in London, Berlin, Ibiza, Rio de Janeiro, Bali, and of course her hometown Oslo, where she regularly appears at respected clubs such as The Villa, Jaeger and Fisk og Vilt.


Taigatrost is a duo consisting of Anette Tunheim Jakobsen and Gaute Barlindhaug from Tromsø, Norway. Taigatrost has since 2008 worked to develop their own sound that can both merge with the pop genre, but also refers to several sub-genres within the humongous genre, electronic music. The soundscape of Taigatrost is a separate habitat where the audience them selves must shape the history and underlying message from sound and lyrics. The soundscape of the band has a complexity that is rare in the pop-segment. At each round of listening, new elements are discovered. Despite its complexity, it is playful and light, yet with a touch of darkness for those who seek it.

Taigatrost released the EP “Awakening” in march 2013 on Beatservice Records.


Elina Waage Mikalsen is a girl with many talents, notably filmmaking, music production and utilizing her beautiful voice. She also knows her way around the decks where she makes soulful beats and old school hip hop collide into a nice mix.
