Northern Disco Lights is the secret story of the Norwegian disco scene as told by UK record label Paper Recordings.
Featuring interviews with dance music influencers Greg Wilson, Bill Brewster and our very own DJ Mag editor Carl Loben, the film tells the tale of how a group of teenagers from a town in the Arctic north called Tromsø turned dance music on its head. Cut off culturally and geographically they set up a radio station, made synthesisers and threw parties, with pioneering artists like Todd Terje, Prins Thomas and Lindstrøm just some of the famous producers/DJs featured in the film.
But the good people at Paper Recordings need your help! The film is being crowdfunded and is close to hitting its target of £10,000 to help with licensing, distribution and more.
