Artists


PHLAKE

Consisting of producer Jonathan Elkær and singer Mads Bo, PHLAKE has rocketed to the very top of the Danish music scene in a very short time. With singles like ‘Angel Zoo’ and ‘Pregnant’, 2016 was indeed the year of PHLAKE! - cemented by the take-home of five statuettes at the Danish Music Awards in November.

Playing a full set of 75 minutes, PHLAKE will undoubtedly ensure an ecstatic and euphoric take-away for everyone in the audience. Anyone present at their set at Roskilde Festival 2016 will nod in strong acceptance of such statement. Their self-proclaimed Rhythm & Balls genre managed to attract one of the biggest crowds the ‘Rising’ scene of Roskilde has ever seen and the duo is ready to deliver the exact same atmosphere on the 20th of May for all of us.

AV AV AV (DJ-SET)

It was an experience of electronic superiority, when Danish electronic trio AV AV AV took the Countdown stage at Roskilde Festival 2015. Comprised of experienced players Eloq, Unkwon and DJ E.D.D.E.H., AV AV AV is something of an electronic super group on the Danish music scene. With filthy synths, bass and beats moving from subdued electro to monkey-goes-bananas-style house music, AV AV AV has the audience in a firm grip.

Their latest album 'Everything is True' was released just this month and has landed very positive reviews. Soundvenue describes the main track of the album 'About You' as 'meandering synth, echo-filled guitar and the mechanical voice manages to strike a rare balance between the sympathetic and the ecstatic'. Fear not electro-loving students of CBS. AV AV AV got you covered.

KATIE KELLER

2017 is the year that Katie Keller goes from being an underground urban artist to performing on the biggest stages. The talented youngster’s most prominent song ‘Eller Ik’’ ft. the one and only Bai-D from Suspekt is now a year old, but with her latest release of ‘Jeg Sagde Det’, the hip hop inspired R’n’B singer once again shows off her rebellious attitude in successful combination with an overly catchy chorus. The end result is an elegant yet attitude rich straight middle finger to the established music industry and its gender roles.

Katie has promised the release of various singles coming up this spring, and we simply cannot wait to get a sneak peek at these on the 20th of May at DR Koncerthuset for the PARTY OF THE CENTURY!

EMIL KRUSE

2016 was the year when EMIL KRUSE’s melodic vocals and rolling 80’s funk bass started crawling up on the Danish charts. His name began to be on people’s minds after performing at Distortion 2016, and receiving the Universal Music and Royal Beers Spinnup Scholarship - which is given to artists who are predicted to have a significant future on the Danish music scene. Chosen mainly on the basis of his most prominent song "Hvorhen” which became a solid hit on Danish radio, the Danish rapper still insists on pushing his music in new directions with the debut album ‘Slumromantiker’. The album landed the young and talented rapper with underground pop-inspired vocals a prize as one of ‘VEGAs Udvalgte(Selected) 2017’, proving once more that the year 2017 will be the year of EMIL KRUSE.

DJ Kenno, DJ Bjelke and DJ Roland

With live music at all times in all four studios of DR Koncerthuset each with a given theme and music genre, the evening will provide attendees with a sensation of being at a mini-festival. Phlake, Katie Keller, Emil Kruse and AV AV AV will not be performing at the same time, so you have the option of hearing all of them if you want. When these guys are not performing we have DJ Kenno, DJ Bjelke and DJ Roland firing up some heavy beats, sure to make all rooms stay vibrant at all times. You will not encounter a studio lacking a party at any given time!
