As the police killings this summer of innocent black men never seemed to end, the great producer Theo Parrish felt the need to adress a major misunderstanding: No one seemed to remember that house and techno was created as a survival mechanism by the oppressed in the US.
Anyone who has been on a really good club night has surely felt how the dancefloor breaks down the barriers between people; how shaking your butt makes it possible to meet complete strangers as fellow human beings. Oslo World Music Festival is founded on such a vision.
That’s why we couldn’t have had a better partner than Jæger, the spot in Oslo which more than anyone else takes club music seriously. Their eminent house djs will hold the fort during the entire festival.
