Confidently riding the wave of tropical and melodic house that is sweeping the World Of Popular Music, the 22 year old producer and DJ from Bergen (Norway) has built his reputation through an astonishing outlet of highly sophisticated originals and remixes over the last year. A University student of electronic music, Sonny’s technical chops are impeccable and have given him a unique position among his peers. The diversity of his musical tastes are extraordinary, one moment remixing acoustic originals by the likes of Angus & Julia Stone and Australian folk darlings Little May, the next releasing official remixes of Swedish dance icon Alesso or the one and only Tove Lo – each time surpassing himself in style and amplitude. It is the accessibility and easiness of his productions that truly impress however, resonating with the very core of his generation and putting him in the vanguard of the booming Scandinavian electronic scene.
Sonny’s new single “Our Youth”, featuring talented Australian songstress (and Taytay favourite) Emmi, is already a huge hit in Norway, and has secured him status both as UMG Nordic Priority Act and Spotify Spotlight Artist for 2016. Next year will kick off with the international campaign for “Our Youth”, with focus on UK, France, Germany, North- and Latin America (via Republic Records), Holland and Italy in addition to the Nordics.
