The rise and rise of Norwegian dance music.
Northern Disco Lights tells the untold story of a group of teenagers in the arctic city of Tromsø, who set off a chain of events that would go on to transform their country. To escape the boredom of growing up in a remote outpost they created their own music scene, setting up radio stations, parties, building synthesizers and making tunes. Word spread as like-minded souls recognised the call to arms and inspired a generation of kids who would go on to change dance music and Norway forever.
This screening will be introduced by Prins Thomas, one of the leading figures in Norway's 'space disco' sound along with contemporaries Todd Terje and Lindstrøm. He takes inspiration from jazz, electro, house and everything in between to develop some of the most exciting and interesting music to hit the dance floor in the past decade. After the credits roll around 11pm, Thomas will be playing in the Sub Club until 4am.
All tickets £15 (screening + club). The entire event takes place in the Sub Club, 22 Jamaica St, Glasgow G1 4QD.
