Gidge, the duo consisting of Jonatan Nilsson and Ludvig Stolterman, is rooted in the city of Umeå, Sweden. Their electronic music is shaped by field-recordings of nature and is both comfortable on the dance floor and in a more relaxing environment. Each and every Gidge track creates its own sense of atmosphere and emotion. Their work evolves naturally, often building to powerful peaks from a silent break that is tweaked with vocal samples and neo-classical influences.
While being adored for the inspiration that is drawn from the forest, nature, and the north of Sweden, the music of Gidge has in fact been of an absolute international caliber and is listened to by people from all over the world. Gidge sold out club-tour shows in London, Amsterdam, Paris, and Stockholm, and played their live-set to crowds on festivals in Mexico, Georgia, Turkey, and Thailand. Blogs such as Pigeons & Planes, A Closer Listen, and Ransom Note wrote about their music – Pitchfork staffers chose Gidge amongst their favorite artists to listen to on snowy days – XLR8R readers voted Gidge to the #1 spot of ‘best new electronic act’ in 2015 – Bandcamp highlighted “LNLNN” as ‘album of the day’ in 2017. The list goes on…
The Gidge discography includes the album “Autumn Bells”, short-film “Lulin” (in collaboration with Lampray), mini-album “LNLNN”, and debut EP “For Seoul”. November 6th of 2021 sew the release of their latest album “New Light”, which was also received to critical acclaim.
