How does one describe a DJ who can do anything in ways no one else can? A true legend in the game and the very definition of a DJ's DJ. Puls embodies a blend of technical prowess, selectional skills and a situational savvy that lets him light any floor on fire regardless of context.
Besides his plate jockeying finesse, he is also one half of both the immortal Floora and the immaculate Itza Itza as well as the founder of Bodø's own Draug Media collective.
Starting out as a turntablist/dj with a predilection for noise, hum and dirty vinyl, Buddy Pitch advanced to be a sound engineer, sound designer, producer and even visual performance artist. His first EP, "Lang Sang" dropped february 2014, and he has been producing, twisting, scratching, fiddling, distorting and sequencing every day he could the last ten or so years. His music somewhat mirrors the ambience of his birthplace: A city by the fjords,
in between jagged mountains. Bass, pads and beats.
Dave Nice / DVNC
Some people learn to play the piano or guitar. Some people learn to sing. Dave grew up with a computer and demo disks. On these disks, among shareware games and early CG .gif files, resided .mods and trackers, moreoften than not Fasttracker II. Despite having no discernible talent for music Dave decided he would take his passion for nineties era rap and jungle and try to recreate this in said music software. The result, some twenty years later, is the weird mishmash of styles, techniques and sounds that makes up Dave Nice. Sometimes it’s downbeat bass music, sometimes it’s hardcore drum’n’bass and sometimes it’s good old-fashioned techno. One way or the other you get a slow cooked, variously spiced pot of influences and sounds crafted over the flames of decades of musical passion.
BAMSEFAR has an ear for the wonky beats and that groove that makes every head start nodding. In between his dj sets he produces some really amazing music, some of which is about to drop this very summer. DJ BMSFR possess a unique ability to kickstart the party right at the top of his set. Although he represents the youth in Draug Media, BMSFRs bag is already stuffed with a wide variety of tricks. He loves to pull them out and does so with slick technique and a keen eye for what's hot. He is one of the collectives favourites, an up and coming producer and a genuine good guy.
..has been making computer based music ever since trackers were the state of the art. He has been investigating a wide variety of electronic music ever since. Most formatively genrewise are house, techno, dub and hiphop. His work of late is clearly music of a more dark and dubby universe. Widely regarded by the collective as one of its most profound and interesting producers, there has been a few number of releases as well as a couple of groundbreaking appearances. Rumour has it that he is refining and perfecting his already amazing sound at a secret location as we speak. BTW - we do mean groundbreaking in the most literal sense of the word. Torshas music is a true combination of inner and outer space.
A bit of the point behind the name "Identisk Entitet" (Identic Entity) is to insinuate that I am you, and you are me.
Is it not the same spark that keep us all alive? Identisk Entitet have four mixtapes behind him with some local produced beats here and there. Existential underground hiphop made for all who has ears to listen with, but maybe especially for those who listens with they're heart

Jens Kirkvåg / Julius Androide
Jens started his electronic music studies through his toy casio keyboard and continued on through Dance- and Rave-Ejay, to make music with fasttracker 2. The epiphany of listening to artists such as Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada lead him to creating music that is everything between crazy ADHD inducing IDM to calm and nostalgic chillwave. Jens is also a visual artist and VJ, and has worked on several album covers for Draug Media, aswell as Vjing with 3D mapping on several concerts and arrangements.
Ｉｖａｎ Ｄｒｙｇｏ is an electronic music artist who is mainly focused on synthwave as well as scoring and producing soundtracks for films and media. Hailing from the sparsely inhabited Nord-Arnøy island off the coast of Northern Norway, he combines elements of 80s soundtracks, funk, techno and demoscene music with a strong flavor of synthwave and darkwave to create a unique musical blend of his own.
With a background as a jazz and funk musician, Ｄｒｙｇｏ’s works often combines the static and tight with the playful and organic.
A huge synthesizer nerd, his tracks features both fat analogue polysynths to the clean and cutting sound of digital synthesis – mangled through VHS tape recorders to give you that sweet injection of euphoric nostalgia.
Though a relatively new artist, he has collaborated with the Volda University College - providing soundtracks for several animated projects - and is currently working with Aninaut Studios as well as working on his first EP, which is slated for a summer 2017 release.
