We’ve talked a lot about Sonny Alven on the Nordic Playlist in recent months, and we finally got to meet the Norwegian producer and DJ in person at by:Larm in Oslo!

The 21 year old Norwegian producer Sonny Alven has been building a huge reputation through a steady stream of highly sophisticated original tracks and remixes over the last year. The diversity of his musical tastes is remarkable, and his first original ‘Where Do We Go’ became an instant hit in the Nordic countries.

The mega-smash-hit ‘Our Youth’, a collaboration with the up-and-coming London native Emmi, catapulted the Norwegian DJ to a whole new level of fame and credibility however, with the track being streamed 13.5 Million times on Spotify alone. The song also caught the attention of executives at Pepsi who decided to use it for their viral campaign ‘Dancing in the Rain’.

Since the beginning of 2016, Sonny has been busy working on his new EP consisting of four new songs. One of the four tracks is released every Friday, with the first one being ‘Make It Personal’, where the young producer worked with electro pop duo ENDEMIX. Followed came the recently released ‘One Last Night’, a remix of a track by the same name by London outfit Vaults and a collaboration with UK based vocalist CAYO.

We invited Sonny to join us in the Nordic Playlist caravan during by:Larm in Oslo, discussing his new EP, as well as his approaches to remixes and collaborations …
