Revolver presents:

WATERS (US/NO)

CC: TBA

Revolver, Møllergata 32, Oslo

Spring 2010 saw the demise of Port O’Brien, and founding member/front man Van Pierszalowski needed a break from the hectic, wonderful mess that is touring. He stumbled into respite in Oslo, Norway, and spent some time away from making music. Van explored the new city, swam in the Norwegian fjords, enjoyed the weather and the experience of seasons changing. He found his bearings and fell in love again. Van gave his new project a name: WATERS. These new songs he wrote veered away from the frequently loose, punchy anthems of Port O’Brien, and as he intensively pieced each one together, he sought a bigger sound – something louder than he could play on his own. So Van returned to Oslo, where his new journey had begun. He put together a band of fine Norwegian gentlemen and spent every day of the next two months rehearsing in a small practice space outside of the city.

Juan Atkins is one of house and techno music’s great legends, he has been called the godfather of techno. The Detroit producer has been around since the beginning of the 80s. No UFOs, The Chase and Clear are just some of the songs Atkins has been responsible for. He has helped to lay the foundation for modern club music, and is a big inspiration for different musicians, from James Murphy and Morgan Geist of New York, to Joy Orbison and Ramadanman in the UK. Last year he got his Model 500 project going again. The plan is to release several EPs on the renowned label R & S Records throughout the year. Lot Lot are incredibly proud to present Juan Atkins at Dattera Til Hagen on Thursday 9th of August. Øyvind Morken is a great house DJ and the closest to the authentic and raw Detroit-feel in Oslo.

ABOUT NIGHTTIME ØYA:
Nighttime Øya are concerts and club concepts around the city center after the Medieval Park closes at 23.00. This is an excellent opportunity to hang on to that great festival feeling and bring it along to the city. Nighttime Øya is arranged in cooperation with the best organizers and clubs in Oslo. Due to varying conditions and the need for organizers to get these gigs/ club concepts to go round, it is not possible to include Nighttime Øya in the festival pass. A valid Øya ticket for the day of the event (or a full festival pass) offers discounts at Nighttime Øya.
