Ugress


Ugress is one of several projects from norwegian producer, composer and remixer Gisle Martens Meyer from Bergen. The music is built upon a massive bed of samples, loops and sounds, aswell as recorded with live musicians - everything from complete symphonic orchestras to bandoneon to vocalists.

The Music

Ugress dives into a groovy, spooky and cinematic landscape of weird samples, loops and sounds. Strong rythms carries soundscapes and melodies forth. The sources of sampling include easy listening records of the 60ies, unknown and well known classic funktracks of the 70ies, computer games, television commercials and the oldest aswell as latest sci-fi b-movie. The compelling groove of a breakbeat (or two, or three) is, of course, always present.
