Biography

Wunderkind. Multi-talented. A miracle. Unique. Young pup.

These, and several other adjectives, were used to describe Mathias Stubø (19) from Tønsberg, Norway when he released his two first albums in 2011. Under the name of Proviant Audio he released "Real love tastes like this", and not long after followed "'1979" as Mathias Stubø.

The startling thing was that the reviews from abroad were as good, if not better, than the ones he got in his native Norway. The so-called credible niche magazines seemingly competed in throwing superlatives Mathias' way, and the collective, pan-european music press seemed happy to agree that a new star was born on the electronica sky.

Plaudits like these are few and far between, and in most cases even the most experienced artists could have lost their focus. But Mathias Stubø, an old soul in a young body, is thankfully oblivious to it all.

In his tiny studio on St. Hanshaugen in Oslo he's been working tirelessly to create and execute all the musical ideas floating around in is head. And less then a year after his two records in 2011, his sophomore and eponymous album as Mathias Stubø is already here.

Reviews from 2011:

“1979”:
Mowno Mag: "One can clearly trust BBE when it comes to finding talent as a force-fed to disco to funk. The label has sensed the wonder, and offers him a place in its prestigious catalog with his first album ingenious.”
