Oyhopper is growing as a name for techno music in his native Norway. Growing up in Oslo, but wanting to move somewhere that reflects the production style of his dark and atmospheric soundscapes, he soon found himself travelling.
Being an anarchist label manager of his own Oyhopper Records imprint, he moved to a barely habited island off the coast of Southern Norway. Oyhopper literally means Island Hopper and his tracks represent his current surroundings.
Fusing dark, hard kick drums, amidst moody bass grooves and tonnes of atmospheric effects and field recordings, hei is specializing in techno music in its darkest, dystopian forms, exploring the journey into complex beats and experimental, raw soundscapes.
