Imagine Charlie Mingus plucking the bass. Along comes Gene Krupa on the drums - only with four arms, and playing like an evil spirit possessed him. Behind the decks Amin Tobin are sneaking in everything from samba rhythms to piano and horn samples. You are now beginning to get close to the sound of Xploding Plastix - a duo from Oslo, Norway, who could have been booked permanently at the residents of Jabba The Hut in "Star Wars". Øyvind Holen, Dagsavisen, Norway.

Xploding Plastix is Hallvard Wennersberg Hagen and Jens Petter Nilsen, and together they are some of the most interesting and refreshing thing that has happened in Norway for a very long time. With their mixture of obscure jazz-samples, cool beats, melodic feel, an "anything goes"-mentality and quite a bit of humour, they have created their own unique style. A kind of older Amon Tobin meets Scott Walker on a smoke filled sleazy jazz-club. Throw in an exquisite taste for film-noire, and we are getting closer. This is Balearic beats, lo-fi, state of the art fuck-upz, simply sweet!

Xploding Plastix have also made a reputation as quite a live experience, with legendary performances on the Blå (Blue) jazz-club in Oslo, Norway, and during the In The City festival in Manchester last year. NME wrote: "Meanwhile, over at Jam, Norwegians Xploding Plastix - two nutcases with lots of small boxes and a terrible name - are offering upheaval of a different kind. Theirs is a big, disorienting future-jazz racket, splicing DJ Food's mad drums, Aphex Twin's time signatures and The Herbaliser's moodiest, cinematic bits. Awesome."

About Xploding Plastix:

Xploding Plastix is the musical child of Jens Petter Nilsen and Hallvard Hagen. Both based in Oslo, they started making music together somewhere late 98-early 99. After about a year of playing, sampling, programming and focused tune writing; they decided it was time to let the public hear what they'd been up to. This resulted in a 6 track demo late 99. About 22 hours after first shipment, record companies were on the phone, and now 4 months later, 5 out of 6 tracks have been released on various lables.

Xploding Plastix has a very organic sound; throwing saccharine analogue melodies to foreground the acoustic quality; imposing a distinctive live feel. A certain raw edge. An oeuvre of an ear-opener: Zipping and unzipping the beat, a beat-science out-of the ordinary. Emphasizing the flowing warmth and organity of the rhythms. Triggering flailing, skittering, skipping and spinning breaks, makes this pure nigthvision!

Xploding Plastix has a sound like irradiated neon was...
