80’s acid feels and a wobbly bassline. Thorsteinssøn premieres his new track ‘Model999’.
Better known as one half of 76-79 with Tommy Vicari Jnr and bossman at Comfortable Records, the Denmark bread Gunnar Thor Viggosson is also knows as Thorsteinssøn.

Whilst living in Holland’s very own creative hub that is Amsterdam, the producer conjured up a a masterplan from being inspired whilst working for Solar Industry Radio.
