Did you ever immerse yourself in joik, Moog Matriarch and the Iranian santoor, all at the same time? Dive into Niilas’ river of sounds – and don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes!
Niilas is a composer and electronic music artist that blends genres, instruments and electronics into a unique expression of club music. Weaving beats, deep bass and melancholic melodies, he creates glittery textures of sound, all tracing back to his indigenous Sámi background and Arctic aesthetics. Known for energetic live performances, his debut album ‘Also This Will Change’ gained him a Norwegian Grammy Award (Spellemann) for ‘Electronic Music Record of the Year’ in 2020.
Elegantly manoeuvring the borders between house, techno, ambient and sound design, Niilas released his third solo album ‘Stone Skipping’ in 2022. Also serving dripping soundscapes on the new ambient album ‘Hydrophane’ and rock solid house music on his second release ‘Also This Will Change’, Niilas is hard to pin
down - and always leaves his audience wanting more.
