[Interview] André Bratten

André Bratten is one of Norway’s leading artists in terms of electronic music. We caught up with him at Sommerøya, and spoke about everything from black metal to Prins Thomas. We’re sitting in a small tent behind one of Sommerøya’s two stages. It’s the only electronic music festival that caters to solely underground music in the entire country. André is well spoken, and seems the perfect person to shed some light on the mysteriousness of Norwegian electronic music. Growing up in Norway, how did you first get in touch with electronic music?
