EMILE THE DUKE

Emile Aasen aka Emile The Duke is a norwegian producer and rapper which has working with music since 1998. He has released several internet albums and has been a steady outsider in the Norwegian hip-hop scene. Things have however gotten to the point where its only right that people should recognize. The tunes revolve around life in Oslo, or the Big Potato as he refers to it. Witty and ironic yet with a strong sense of harsh reality. He is according to himself sounding like Woody Allen, Bill Evans, Steely Dan, Vincent Gallo, Michelangelo Antonioni, Frank Sinatra & Madonna. Always in search for new contacts and inspiring experiences, he hopes to touch both the bourgouis and the working class people

About the Produced in Norway series: For the last years the number of releases of quality Norwegian hip-hop and experimental music on vinyl has declined, even though there are more talented rappers and producers than ever before. Digital technology has allowed new artists to merely MP3 their tracks, after they are removed from the MySpace playlist, most of the music disappears. The Produced in Norway series tries to document the vast landscape of music laying on dusty harddisks all around the country.
