Norway’s Helge Boge, known to his fans as DJ Boge, first caught notice on the hip-hop scene as a DJ for the rap group A-Laget back in 2008. Since then, he’s incorporated house, disco and funk into his sets while performing at festivals and clubs throughout Scandinavia.
In 2013 Boge launched his Night Owl Music label releasing house tracks under his own name and through 2015 as the duo Boge and Scandal. The duo also released tracks on miniMarket, Function, and Housebloggin’ and were in-demand remixers for Warner, Sony and Universal
This summer Boge is also touring the Norwegian festival circuit as one-half of Kickslip – a turntablist and drummer duo.
On the genesis of his newest track, “Summer Haze,” Boge remarks, “I’ve always loved the funky laid back house vibe and started out just wanting to make a funky bass line, with some floating soulful chords. By luck I met Kaye at that same time and even though she never had sung on a house track like this before, I felt that she suited the track perfectly.”
Boge’s debut release on Disco Pinata, “Summer Haze,” is out on August 3.
