Heaven & Hell
Himmel & Helvete
The Athome Project er Stian Jacobsen fra Stord utenfor Bergen. Hans debut 10" Fjord EP ble sluppet på Kristiansand/Oslo-selskapet Groovecentral Recordings vår 2000, og ble re-utgitt i desember på tyske Stereo Deluxe i en litt omarbeidet versjon. Han har også bidratt på samlere fra Kikkin'/Slip'n'Slide og Pork, og har komponert musikk for U på NRK, samt teater og kortfilmer.
Hans debut for Beatservice er en 7" med to versjoner av Heaven & Hell, en cool downtempo/triphop-låt med deilig jazza sax-tema. Versjonen på b-sida inneholder samplinger fra en viss anti-dop-film fra 60-tallet…
Flere Athome-utgivelser kommer i 2001 på Stereo Deluxe.
The Athome Project is Stian Jacobsen from Stord, an island outside Bergen, Norway. He has been studying music at high school, and has worked on various music shops. But it wasn't until the springtime of 1998, when he got problem with his back and had to quit the daytime job, that he got all the time he wanted to produce music and explore the outer limits of electronica. The result of this was a huge output of music, most of it in the downtempo / jazzy beats / leftfield area.
His debut 10" Fjord EP was released on the Norwegian label Groovecentral Recordings in the spring of 2000. Although it only was released in a limited amount, it got quite a lot of attention, especially his version of Summertime. The EP was picked up by the German label Stereo Deluxe, and was released in December in a slightly re-worked version. Summertime was also picked up by UK Kikkin'/Slip'n'Slide for their Chillin' 2 compilation, and he has contributed with an exclusive track on the Pork compilation "Dub Plates From The Lamp".
He has also composed music for Norwegian television (NRK), and has produced music for theatre and several shortfilms.
His debut for Beatservice is a 7" with two versions of Heaven & Hell, a cool and jazzy downtempo track. The b-side contains samples from a Norwegian anti-drug movie from the 60's.
