In early May we reached the 5 year mark of our activities with promoting and releasing all the best of future music from Denmark. This calls for a party and on this coming Saturday we are happy to invite you to our birthday celebration on the first floor at Stengade were it all began 5 years ago.

Bitchslap Magazine recently put out their 20th issue. The founding fathers of SOUNDesc got interviewed by Fergus Murphey about beat culture in Denmark and much more. Find it in selected shops around Denmark and Europe.
This Thursday Lotte Rose will be opening her first solo exhibition at the IMT Gallery in London. The exhibition involves wide range of video, installation and audio made in response to the productivity of some US hip hop acts:
“They are releasing several albums a month,” she says, “creating ripples, that later on became major waves in the heavy pop music industry. Likewise I wanted to produce a crowd of works with more concern for process than outcome. I am accumulating multiple self-portraits that become a crowd supporting each other, artificially enhancing the justification of their existence.”
Watch the trailer:
Private view: Thursday 23rd January 6:00pm – 9:00pm
Exhibition: 24th January – 2nd March 2014
First Thursday late opening: Thursday 6th February 12:00 – 9:00pm

Last week we announced the arrival of the new artist Jagan Mai. Today his EP “Mana Pool” is out.
Playful melodies, a lingering bass, organic percussion drowned in reverb and dreamy field recordings of singing birds and creaking forest floors are among the elements that all together creates the marvelously lo-fi beats that Jagan Mai is behind. Now he is ready with his second release, the roughly 20 minute EP entitled ’’Mana Pool’’, that greatly explores the magical and dreamy elements of music.
The release is available now as a pay-what-you-like download below via Bandcamp:
– coming on iTunes shortly.
The only 17 year old Gustav Berntsen is the artist behind the moniker Jagan Mai and is the latest addition to our roster. Earlier this year he released his debut EP ’’Clouds’’ on Bad Panda Records. It was well received by, Andrew Jervis (Ubiquity) among others, who featured it on his weekly Bandcamp radio show two weeks in a row.
