“Weird fun, Scandinavian style – clean, convival and utterly wonderful” (Mojo)
On his records Kim Hiorthøy combine weird beats, lo-fi/leftfield electronics, field recordings, electro-acoustic sounds and samples, resulting in a sound all his own. His debut album “Hei” was released in 2000 to rave reviews around the world. His second record, “Melke”, a collection of remixes, 7 inches, rejected tracks and tracks for compilations, was released in 2002. His live sets differ somewhat from the records; with faster speeds and louder beats they sometimes end up as tiny techno raves, if perhaps weird ones at that. Hiorthøy is also a graphic designer, mostly recognized for his work for the Rune Grammofon label and rock group Motorpsycho. A book, “Tree Weekend”, was published by Die Gestalten Verlag in 2000.
