What if I tell you that a warm summer Sunday has been hit by a tornado during the Electronic Family festival in Den Bosch?
Oh yes, a tornado named Ørjan Nilsen!!
Our beloved trance master mind struck the stage with his usual big smile and tons of bangers, pampering his crowd as always.
His powerful and euphoric signature sound made us jump for the whole gig, and when he dropped some dancefloor destroyers like ‘Iconic’( celebrating its first anniversary with a bang indeed) and ‘Drowning’ our day has been made!!
When he left the stage leaving us begging for more we had to go back to reality knowing that all good things must come to an end.
If you are familiar with The Backstage Access, you know already how much we love this artist, both for his music and for his great charming personality, so we really could not miss the chance to have a little talk with him.
We must thank Ørjan and his entourage (really amazing people) for meeting and greeting us backstage for a quick friendly chat.
TBA: Hey Ørjan, nice to meet you again and thank you so much for supporting us!
ØN: Well…Thank you, for supporting me!
TBA: How are you doing lately?
ØN: I’m doing great …It’s so busy, and so fun, even if I am getting a bit older, I still feel like a kid!
TBA: Well, you are a kid!! Your set is always so energetic and powerful!
ØN: I think I have disorder…I cannot stand still when I play music…but it’s a good disorder to have I think!
TBA: Absolutely, we love to see you jump with a big smile on your face and giving it all!
ØN: Thank you, and come on, how could you not love this?? (pointing towards himself 🙂 TBA note )
TBA: True!! Any insight you can spill about your new album?
ØN: Well my album is basically almost done, all the tracks are done, just the last touches are left, I do think it’s gonna be a winter release for this year, so that’s good. So that’s also why so many of my singles are coming out now, cause I have so many tracks finished.
TBA: Cool, so we will (almost) patiently wait for it. So, you are kind of a geek in the studio, any new tools you are using lately?
ØN: I Just bought a new sound chord from Universal Audio which is amazing and has so many fantastic plugins and it makes my tracks sound a lot more fat and analog
TBA: What about your schedule these days?
ØN: Well I have at least another month of touring and then I hope to get 10 days off to stay with my daughter, daddy is gone all summer so of course she is getting angry, after that I am gonna have other gigs and then again 10 days off…So not really an holiday, but when fall comes I can relax a bit.
TBA: What is inspiring you the most lately?
ØN: I think what inspires me the most are the festivals, like listening to different kind of music on different kind of stages of different kind of djs, this is actually fantastic because I am always looking for that new sound, that one thing that tickle my fancy and I think I found it this year, actually at Tomorrowland…
TBA: And how was playing at Tomorrowland?
ØN: Well even if you are kinda seasoned dj like me, it’s so big so massive, the audience is so overwhelming, I think for me it’s the best place in the world to play, there are so many good festivals out there but for me, it has a special place in my heart.
TBA: Thank you for the chat, and please keep us up to date on all your new releases!!
ØN: Ok sure, there are going to be a lot of them!!
