Anders Bolstad aka DJ Bols
Hails from a little place in Norway with a big reputation for adventure, which happens to be synonymous with his DJing style and the way that he’s swept the Bergen underground in recent years. Bols bought his first turntables with money from his confirmation and while he dabbled in extreme sports, his love always returned to music, which grabs his full focus these days. Even though initially being a Trance and Hard House fan, he has spent the last 5 years exploring the underground techno scene with Bergen Underground Armada, Klubbkveld and Sista Låten collectives. It is the combination of Bols’ passion for history, urban exploration and throwing raves that has seen him more and more inspired to drop deeper, darker and harder techno tracks over the years which is what has made him known for creating unique atmospheres that few bunkers, warehouses, forests and mountaintops have missed out on.
His Dutch background and a long stint in Spain has filled out Richard Blanco’s musical repertoire nicely with an unmistakable signature Spanish tech-house sound. With almost 2 years in Bergen under his belt, Blanco has become a well-known name in the Bergen club scene, both over and underground. Blanco enthusiastically shares his wide knowledge for electronic music after nearly 15 years behind the decks with dance floors everywhere. His skills as a selector and mixer are an obvious result of hard work, dedication, and love for the music that gets people moving.
