The Midnight Sun Festival x Iceland

Hausar [IS]


Hausar [IS]

The leading drum & bass collective in Iceland founded by Bjarni Ben, Croax and Nightshock. Hausar started streaming private house parties in 2012 that evolved into club nights at legendary venues like Faktorý, Dolly and current home, Paloma. Long time Icelandic drum & bass veterans Junglizt and Untitled joined later. Hausar play everything from liquid rollers to banging neurofunk with influence from artists such as Ivy Lab, Alix Perez, Friction, Andy C, Dom & Roland and Bad Company.
Bjarni Ben is known for high energy bangers, double drops and back 2 back sets with Croax who mixes rolling neurofunk with headbanging dirty beats. Nightshock, also known as the Icelandic encyclopedia of drum & bass digs up the anthems before you hear about them and is competent mixing any style. Untitled was raised in 90s jungle and tech step but discovered his smooth side early on in liquid funk. Last but not least is Junglizt, not for the faint-hearted, known for
unexpected u-turns and the darker side of drum & bass. In Icelandic, Hausar means heads:
“Everyone here is a head, everyone is here for the music.”
