The Belgian producer Olivier Grégoire aka Kolombo is hitting Norwegian shores this coming friday. He doesn’t really need much of an introduction. His music clearly speaks for itself, he knows his shit inside and out and he’s guaranteed to make you dance. So yeah, head down to Fisk & Vilt this friday, the talented duo No Dial Tone will be warming you up real good from 10pm. But before that, we’ve had a little chat with Olivier so that you can get to know him a little better…
What are you doing right now?
Well, many production projects on the way. My partner Geoffroy and I just finish the “Mugwump” album after 3 years of work. Kolombo; many releases & rmxs coming out soon on Noir, Kompakt, Eskimo & This Is. Loulou Players projects still on our label “LouLou Rec” and a release on Nervous coming out soon and some collaborations with friends such as Djuma Soundsystem, Oliver Klein, DeMarzo & Ante Perry.
Who are your musical heroes?
Syl Johnson, Bob James, Zapp, Funkadelic, Dj Premier, Dj Craze, The Human League, Portished, Todd Terry, Dopplereffekt, Carl Craig, Daft Punk, just to name of few…
Whats on repeat at the moment?
It depends my mood..But I listen to old rare soul funk from the 70s and some underground disco stuff. I also listen to oldschool hiphop mixtapes or trip hop like Ninja tune.
Will this be your first visit to Oslo?
Yes it is. I’m looking forward to the party, happy people, dancing & drinking all night long!
