Erlend Øye's Fireside Chat

"One thing I really like in life is to make people dance. I love to be the guy that comes into the party and realises 'oh..I think everyone wants to dance but they are just too shy to dance!' - and so I start dancing on the dancefloor on my own and ... after they see me dancing around it feels much safer for them to go there!'
Whitest Bergen boy alive, King of convenience and emperor of dreaminess Erland Oye talks about getting into music, deejaying and the different bands he's been with - and there's a bunch of his solo,  KOC and WBA tracks thrown in. Very chilled, apart from the Kakkmaddafakka track!
