Asle is however a child of the acid house era and so chose to put his classical training to use within the synthesized world of electronic music. The combination of raw talent and passion for dance music has resulted in an impressive rise to prominence within the global dance scene.
Stand out releases for some of the coolest house labels around including Cr2, Size and Yoshitoshi have cemented Asle reputation as one of the best around at creating a cool but accessible sound placing him in the same league of “turn to guy” as Seamus Haji, Steve Angello and Raul Rincon.
These skills have led to invitations to work with labels such as Sony, Universal, Positiva, Ministry Of Sound, Southern Fried, London to provide remixes for frontline acts including New Order, Luther Vandross, Nickleback, The Source ft Candi Stanton and Funky Green Dogs.
Asle has twice been no. 1 on the DMCUpdate Buzzchart (Full Blown “Some Kinda Freak, Asle “Golden Sun”)
With a strong production portfolio secured Asle has spent the last five years developing his own Blow Out Records label in to the main outlet for his music. The culmination of this journey was the release of his debut artist album, My Places in 2008.
It is clear from the first listen of My Places that this is a piece of work that is as close to a pitch perfect cross-over dance album as you could ask for. Asle has stepped up his game, by fusing pop-standard song writing and radio friendly production with a beautiful and subtle sonic palette.
Coming up over the summer 2011 Asle has releases lined up an CR2 and Pool-E music, Yoshitoshi and Blow Out.
Asle is also currently working on an album with his partner in crime, Engelina Andrina, which will see him jouney into what can best be described as Indie Rock.
