The Norwegian Trance Viking shares five of his Selected Cuts, demonstrating the blend of all things chunky and groovy he will bring to his Egg London debut at Flotation Day Time Mad Hatter Trance Party, June 15th. 

Universal Nation - Push 

This was the track that got me into trance and it has this most incredibly powerful melody, awesome bass and beats and just took me to a place where I thought ‘’ok, this party will never end!’’ So for me this is definitely my number 1 track.

   

Jurgen Vreis - The Theme 

As it has sort of coloured my own style as well - that mono lead thingy with an amazing melody and the piano… the drive of the track just takes me to a whole different level and it’s a track I have so many memories with that it makes it one of my most favourite tracks of all time.

 

Andain - Beautiful Things 

Possibly one of the most beautiful tracks I’ve heard in my entire life. It reminds me of summer 2003 which was an absolutely amazing summer and also it’s never been as hot in my city ever since. 

So it was just a very good period for me.

   

Quintino - TUTUTU 

Right now I love playing this track with its very cool melody and I absolutely love its drop! It’s a track I love playing out and it’s also cool to listen to at home, and this is something I don’t usually do myself!

   

Axwell - Watch The Sunrise 

Sort of a vix-dub thing which is a bit more progressive but for me, it’s the perfect summer track…imagine just partying with a drink in your hand and you just let everything else go. I love this track to this day! Go check it out, although it’s kind of old now, but I love it so much.
