Mon 16th March – Cajsa Siik, Shacklewell Arms, London – Tickets

Tues 17th March – Kamchatka, The Unicorn, London – Tickets
“ROCK ON FOLKS !!!!!” hails the tagline of Swedish power trio Kamchatka. Synth pop might have a big representation in the Nordic Countries but bands like Kamchatka are still keeping the 1960s and early 1970s blues rock alive, check them out on Tuesday at The Unicorn.
“Three producers from Copenhagen who meet in cabins that are close to the water all around Scandinavia producing albums” is one of the more intriguing band introductions we’ve ever read. It should make you to buy a ticket to the electronic group AV AV AV‘s gig too, and rightly so – this trio is comprised of three of Denmark’s hottest producers, ELOQ, UNKWON and DJ E.D.D.E.H. They’re sure to set Club NME alight with their floor shaking anthems, so make sure you’re there to see it!
As the hottest electronic music in the world right now is coming from the Nordics, it’s time to celebrate this with a night dedicated to some of the artists leading the way. Norway’s Lindstrøm has gained cult status within dance music circles, and will be followed by newcomers Art Alfie & Mr Tophat – it’s going to be electronic heaven, so we’ll see you there.
