Pasha and Coucheron has already built a solid standing in each of their respective fields.
Pasha came up through the Norwegian underground hip hop scene, crafting his skills and showcasing his live performances through every opportunity he got. Buzzing through word of mouth as well as via praise among international tastemakers such as NME, Ebro on Beats 1 Radio and Highsnobiety, Pasha’s explosive energy eventually caught the attention of international festival bookers, securing spots at the line up at festivals such as SXSW, Kadetten, X GAMES and Appletree Garden to name a few. With songs such as “Colorblind” and “I Don’t Speak French”, Pasha has now millions of streams, a strong, recognizable brand in Scandinavia and making his first moves into the U.S. and rest of Europe while being nominated for “Live Act of the Year” at this year’s P3 GULL.
Coucheron built his reputation in the studio; signing to Atlantic Records at the age of 18 after multiple chart-topping remixes over at Hype Machine, the young producer and artist became a go to guy for some of the hottest international A-listers. Producing for artists such as Kehlani, Nick Jonas, Kyle and Don Diablo, Coucheron quickly made a name for himself and later rolled out his first original tracks, charting on college radio in Germany, the U.S. and Norway in addition to harvesting millions of streams across all platforms. Touring Norway and the U.S., the artists became notorious for his upbeat sets, setting fire to dancefloors while releasing tracks guesting the likes Mayor Hawthorne, Matoma and Ary to name a few.
Deciding to combine Pasha’s retro flavored, upbeat bars with Coucheron’s playful approach to electronic dance music, the guys isolated themselves into a cabin in the Norwegian mountains to craft something special for both of them. Serving as a creative outlet for ideas too radical for them to pursue on their own, they decided to dig into the project as equals, mashing the madness in a careful but including process. Creating an entire universe of sounds and references, we’re pleased to see them release and perform the project as equals as well, this coming spring and summer.
The project became a melting pot made with ingredients of disco, french house, 90’s hip hop, modern electronica and hard hitting trap. With elements touching upon literally every part of the emotional spectrum, the project is filled with vibes of pure nostalgia, reminiscent of the work of Gorillaz and Basement Jaxx.
The second single off the project, Lighthouse, is a clubby delight. Packed with funky beats and retro house sample esthetics, the new single features 90’s inspired rap verses and a catchy disco flavored hook. Reminiscent of the works of Gorillaz and Basement Jaxx, “Lighthouse” is sure dancefloor-killer.
