Röyksopp DJ Set


"A two-headed Norwegian monster, dealing within the realm of contemporary electronic music," is how the Norwegian duo born in 1998 describe themselves. Four consecutive number one spots on the Norwegian music charts, award winning videos, eccentric costumes, active touring across the globe, experimenting with various genres pertaining to electronica – what more could one want. Maybe only to have a force of nature such as this in our own backyard... or in the EDM-tent at Rock Summer 25! Röyksopp, meaning puffball mushroom in Norwegian, is Torbjørn Brundtland and Svein Berge. Their debut album "Melody A.M.", released in 2001, sold over a million copies and landed on the first spot in the Norwegian music charts. The same fate awaited their second album "The Understanding"... and the third "Junior"... and the fourth, "Senior", released in 2010. The duo´s second album also hosted the song "What Else Is There?", the video of which has gotten over 5,5 million hits on YouTube. We offer you their latest clip "Running to the Sea" released this Januray in collaboration with the Norwegian singer Susanne Sundfør. At Rock Summer 25 the successful duo will perform as a DJ Set.
