Bio

"It sounds like... I don't know, noise without the noise in it! And like nothing else!"

This is an actual quote from a guest at one of KAOSS 99s gigs. The guy himself couldn't have described it better.

KAOSS 99 is the solo-live-laptop-synth-ambient-dubcore-noisetronica band project of renowned norwegian DJ and journalist Guttorm Andreasen.

KAOSS 99 makes music in the experimental borderlands of noise, electronica and ambient. People seem to enjoy his live mix of a green Alien Head theremin, a couple of oscillators, noiseboxes and a homemade synthesizers. KAOSS 99 also makes remixes for friends, colleagues and others, both live and in his homebase, STUDIO 99.

Guttorm Andreasen has been around music in as many ways as possible for as long time as he can remember. In his native Norway he is known as the multirhythmic DJ 99, as a club promoter (for instance the award winning club night Soria Moria Dancing) and for his many years as a radio and tv host, presenter and producer at the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, the NRK. Up to 200.000 people tuned in to his daily radio DJ show WASABI, where he played music with drums, without any other constraints. WASABI ran daily for 3 years at NRKs cultural channel, Channel 2. As DJ 99 he has played in every club and festival there are in Norway. He has gigged at the prestigious SONAR Festival in Barcelona and at the WOMEX in Seville. In 2005 he reached the finals of The International World Beat DJ Competition in London.

When Guttorm Andreasen quit the NRK (after 17 years) in 2008 in order to be a freelance musician, DJ and, journalist, the old garage band guitarist finally had some time to make music again. It came out as KAOSS 99.
He had his first gig at an underground noise/gabber/hardcore night at HAUSMANIA in Oslo in december 2008 and has since played gigs at Tou Scene, Mir and several other venues in Norway. He performed at several festivals in 2009 and continues to make music and do more and more collaborations with other musicians in the same sonic landscape.
