Thorgerdur Jóhanna (Þorgerður Jóhanna), originally from Iceland, now Oslo-based. A DJ, composer, singer and a pianist. Falling in love with house/techno music in 2010 after frequent visits at Kaffibarinn in Reykjavík, her interest has only grown. Starting playing vinyl at home late 2014, she’s already spinning records around Oslo as of July 2015, now followed by GOYO events at Skuret and most recently at Påfuglen, where she played b2b with A:G. The energy filled with positiveness and grooves that make you feel the music are what she brings to the table. Her favourite records are bought in Berlin and her inspiration is simply the music.
She doesn’t like to define the music she plays, but everything from groovy house to almost melodic tech-house, techno and dub/minimal with great beats is what you can expect in her set.
“For me music isn’t something that’s just there, it’s something that moves people in so many, different and beautiful ways and helps us define ourselves.”
