Bio

The man behind Blue Paper Project, Jon Berntsen, has a big interest in sound and technologies in music production.

New album in the making (2013/2014)

At the moment, Jon participates in several music projects/bands, including Blue Paper Project, Massive Sound, Groove Alliance and Distorted Personality.

Second album and growing record company (2011)

Through 2011 his record company Smash Fabric Records split in three, one sublabel for different genres. More artists were signed, and a lot of hours were put into this. At the same time, he's been working with a new album since 2010, and by autumn 2011 almost all new tracks were finalized. Some rounds of revisiting were done as usual, but now the new album is finally ready for distribution. The album has got the name Recharge, and will be out in all huge digital stores 2nd December 2011.

Record label, first album, and present (2008-2010)

In 2008 he founded the record company Smash Fabric Records to get more control over networks, events and releases. As Jon is an entrepreneur in mind, he wants to build up this label further, to achieve respect and acknowledge to the public masses, backed up with a great concept and great artists. Early 2009, Jon decided that he had so many tracks on the table that the original planned EP could turn into an album. He worked throughout 2009 with his tracks, and finally in december 2009, Blue Paper Project released the 11 track album “City Lights”. It contains 10 new original Blue Paper Project tracks plus one remix by the great american artist Brian Roche.

Progress with Blue Paper Project, plus other projects (2004-2008)

In 2005, Jon and his DJ friend Ingar Hessenschmidt started the tech trance-group Distorted Personality Now, pushing out the harder tunes on this project, he could finally dedicate Blue Paper Project for what it is today, mainly urban and ambient electronica with a touch of modernism and pop.

The beginning of Blue Paper Project (2001-2004)

The history of Blue Paper Project starts back in 2001, when Substation had been closed down for good. It’s been some genre switching through the years, going through almost every genre in the electronic music specre, and it’s been an incredible progression in production methods and access to gears. Through these years, Jon attended NISS, the biggest school in Norway for educating people in the technical and musical aspects of the music business. It sure helped a lot with the growing ambitions.

Early career (1997-2001)

Jon’s music and production career started with Fast Tracker II when he was 14 years old. Unfortunately many of these old tracks have been lost in several major disk crashes. In 1999 Jon and Christoph Schmitz founded Substation, a dance/electronic group with ambitions, creativity, and drive. Totally, they had finished enough tunes for two albums, but the technologies and techniques used in the production process wasn’t top notch. This resulted in a lot of experimentality and some “strange” sounding tunes without a big future, really. But he learned a lot from this period, getting his first stage experiences as well.
