Are Mokkelbost – my partner in the Dausteg DJ concept has added a new plush looking Dausteg page to his spanking new website (click on image). It includes all the live sets we managed to record, plus photos, video footage and flyer/poster designs. Be sure to check out Are’s myriad other works whilst you’re there.

Loefah @ Acid Grime by Erik Knive Skodvin

Acid Grime was my naive attempt at a Grime/Dubstep inspired club night in Oslo at BLÅ. The logo was designed by Stian Westerlund Eriksen, my DJ partner in the ongoing (2007 – present) more low key concept Dubious (he also DJed alongside me at Acid Grime).The first Acid Grime on 6th September 2007  featured DMZ regulars Loefah and Sgt. Pokes.  On February 15th 2008 Glaswegian Warp and Hyperdub alumni Rustie was Acid Grime’s second guest and played once more the following year. Ultimately, the concept wasn’t  popular enough to warrant a Friday night spot at BLÅ . Acid Grime was permantly retired in 2009 and replaced with a Breakcore night. The same year, my earliest Oslo club concept Dausteg (together with Are Mokklebost) collaborated with Oslo’s Ultima festival on a night which took place in a huge church (St. Jakobskirken). For this I was able to book Mount Kimbie who brought along their buddy James Blake to play beside them: A vindication of sorts.

DAUSTEG: 04/10/2007 BLÅ, Oslo

An earlier Dausteg set stemming from the period when we were still named Deathstep. It dates from 4th October 2007 and followed an evening of concerts by Svarte Greiner, Kevin Drumm and Lasse Marhaug at Oslo’s BLÅ venue. It caused slight controversy at the time when Oli Marlow of  Sonic Router posted it on Dubstep Forum: “If I’ve never heard of Deathstep before, and I see it on a flyer, am I going to be able to call up my girl and say…hey..will you come out to the Deathstep night with me?”  I quickly and half jokingly came up with the name for our original nights at Spasibar, Oslo in 2006. Some US Breakcore/Industrial types had also used Deathstep for their noisy D&B events and have since claimed it as their own, they’re entirely welcome to it. Deathstep entered the Urban Dictionary in 2010 as  ‘A music genre based upon deathcore/death metal, remixed dubstep style’ – so nothing at all to do with us: We tended to prefer our metal of the Black and Doom variaties.
