Video for Level Up (Paper Work vol. 1)

First video in a series of thirteen accompanying The Famous Biting Guy’s sample based album “Paper Work vol.1″ is out! Fittingly enough, the visuals consists of work we have done playing around with paper – or to be more precise; b0kart. This one is the energetic little snack called “Level Up”, enjoy!

New Track… Techno Color!

b0kart by E. Lundgaard

In the b0ka roster of producers, there is a man who seems to take his tracks to the extreme, whos use of contrasts and controled chaos reveals a strangely beautiful universe of sounds. We are of course talking about Edit, who recently sent b0ka HQ a schizoid instrumental techno demo called Techno Color, with saxophone by Tenor Nudler. He could also reveal he plans to lay down some vocals on the album version, but was reluctant to give more details. Check it out below:

Now the time has come! For a long time now, many b0kaists have been working with photography. We are now starting a series where members of b0ka will show some of their work. First photographer out is aeaoea:

You probably know aeaoea best as a producer and multi-instrumentalist who has been working mainly with Jesse. aeaoea was born on the west coast of Norway, and took an early interest both in music and art. Lately, music has taken up most of his time, but he has been able to dig out some old photographs from his photo-years. aeaoea about his first photo-series:

“Well, I’m first and foremost a producer and musician. But visual art, both photography and drawing, has always been a part of me. The five photos I’m showing you are all a result of a photo-shoot I did in Svalbard in 2000. The one “model” I had, resulted in many fine photos. I feel that my Norwegian heritage is being portrayed in this conglomerate of light, darkness, openness and solitude, and I hope all b0kaists and b0ka-fans out there will feel the same mood of ice and fire that I had in my soul the day these photos were taken.”


Happy New Year from b0ka HQ!

2011 is coming to an end, leading us into the myth-inducing year of Donkey Tails; 2012! It’s been a b0kayear extraordinaire, with radio shows and b0ka Live! and remixes and b0kaløv. Why not celebrate with a suitable parting gift; a b0ka Live recording from Tegleverket, Bergen of the romantic disco tune Langt Herfrå.

Happy New Year and Pink Donkey Blessings from us at b0ka HQ!

b0ka Live @ Landmark + Jesse & Etoh preview

Yes, it’s true. b0ka HQ got the word today and we are just as surprised as the b0ka Live boys are by the extremely short notice. b0ka Live is, as you might already know, b0ka Recordings’ own strictly b0ka cover band; five guys who decided they were tired of never getting to hear their favorite music live. They usually perform with computers, synths, a vocoder, talkbox, tambourine, guitar, bass, saxophone and trombone in addition to vocals, and their live show often comes with a projected video of b0kart.

It will take place this thursday (12.05.11) at Landmark in Bergen, alongside Admir and Velferd who will DJ before and after the concert.


It’s no secret that when Jesse hooks up with the right producer the result is magic. Not long ago Edit gave us a track called See Jesse that ought to blow any b0ka mind. This time Etoh hooked up with Jesse and produced a romantic disco tune. A song for both mating and dancing!

See Jesse!

And here he is:

Edit and Jesse join forces, Jesse (“from the street”) on the mic and Edit “on the beat”, as the song goes. We don’t yet know who Dikembe The Walruss is, or Patricia Bolores; apparently the same person. Or who wrote the lyrics for this track; they didn’t say. But we do know we love it! And the b0kart.
