Norin & Rad is a name you better get used to hearing. Tipped as stars of the future by Above & Beyond back in 2011, Bruce Karlsson and Nick Sember have lived up to that billing and more. Since their breakthrough smash "Bloom", the Californian upstarts have been producing the most futuristic trance-influenced grooves and progressive EDM around with a string of Anjunabeats anthems such as "Zion", "DeVas", "Pistol Whip" and "Five Finger Death Punch".
Always standing out from the crowd, Norin & Rad's sound is a melting pot of influences that is entirely their own. Influenced by all forms of EDM and beyond, their current production output varies from the anthemic rush of "Aldo" to the rave-influenced progressive house riot that is "Bird Is The Word" through to forthcoming glitch-hop bomb "Rectify".
As full of energy as their music, the duo's unique approach behind the decks and fast-cutting DJ style has earned them rightful reputations as party starters of the highest order. In the last 12 months alone, these two Southern Californian boys have played some of Australia's biggest arenas with Above & Beyond, as well as rocking everywhere from New York's legendary Roseland Ballroom to India's Jayamahal Palace. On the festival circuit, they have already conquered the stages of Miam's Ultra, EDC Las Vegas, Electric Zoo in New York and Tomorrowland in Belgium. This summer will bring a highly anticipated appearance at Creamfields UK, a show at Amnesia for Cream Ibiza and a full European tour.
Respected as serious and highly talented producers, the duo have also found time to remix the soundtrack from the world's most prestigious video games franchise - Halo 4 - as well as "The Way You Are" by Australian outfit Peking Duk.
With big things planned for 2013 and beyond, Norin & Rad are going to be impossible to ignore before long.
