Gidge is a duo consisting of Jonatan Nilsson and Ludvig Stolterman. Rooted in the city of Umeå, Sweden, they make electronic music that is shaped by field-recordings of nature that is both comfortable on the dance floor and in a more relaxing environment.
Each and every Gidge track creates its own sense of atmosphere and emotion. Their work evolves naturally, often building to powerful peaks from a silent break that is tweaked with vocal samples and neo-classical influences.
While being adored for the inspiration that is drawn from the forest, nature, and the north of Sweden, the music of Gidge has in fact been of an absolute international caliber and is listened to by people from all over the world. Gidge sold out club-tour shows in London, Amsterdam, Paris, and Stockholm, and played their live-set to crowds on festivals in Mexico,Georgia, Turkey, and Thailand.
Blogs such as Pigeons & Planes, A Closer Listen, and Ransom Note wrote about their music – Pitchfork chose Gidge amongst their favourite artists to listen to on snowy days. XLR8R readers voted Gidge as ‘best new electronic act’ in 2015. Bandcamp highlighted “LNLNN” as ‘album of the day’ in 2017.
