Third Attempt



Norwegian producer, Third Attempt, has wasted no time making his uniquely indelible mark on the subaquatic musical universe. The Oslo-based artist has released impeccably produced music on a tight selection of renowned labels, including finding a regular home on supreme Norwegian imprint, Beatservice Records, as well as benchmark UK disco imprint, Paper Recordings.

Aged just 23-years old, the depth of his musical wisdom and the influences he carries into his essential productions are nothing short of staggering. Traversing dreamy soundscapes that blissfully range in tone through lounge, jazz, ambient, trip-hop and house, his work is endowed with a supple musicality that belies his tender age.

His accomplishments are all the more impressive when you take into account that he's completely self-taught in music and production - having travelled a winding path deep into the electronic underground following his earliest exposure to the more commercial shades of the spectrum. Journeying through the experimental sounds of Ambient, Trip Hop, House, Techno, he's diligently studied masters to arrive at his extraordinarily refined and evolving sound signature.

Gleefully embracing the work of UK heavyweights like LTJ Bukem, Mr Scruff, Floating Points, Aphex Twin, and Four Tet while continuing the bountiful lineage of Norwegian luminaries such as Todd Terje, Lindstrøm, Prins Thomas, Bjørn Torkse, Biosphere. He's carefully studied some of the most revered talents in the industry – filtering and refining his influences to create a sound that's searingly personal.

It was following a move to the mythically Norse disco-rich topography of Tromsø in 2017 that he encountered his first experience of club music. This marked the beginning of his ongoing relationship with Beatservice Records, striking a chord with the well-tuned ear of label manager, Vidar. His very first live performance took place in Tromsø, too, at the Insomnia Festival, and he's since gone on to move crowds at gigs and festivals throughout Norway and beyond.

His shows are ever-evolving, incorporating stunning visual imagery to create a vibrantly visceral audio-visual experience. His sparkling discography includes a pair of expansive albums – 'The World Is Too Loud' and 'Beats From The Quarantine' – and has generated enthusiastic support from key players from all corners of the underground with Ron Trent and Bill Brewster as his fans.

With a sound that's equally well-suited to at home meditations or joyous dancefloor exchange, he's expertly crafted a catalogue of sounds that are uncommonly well-suited to the spirit of the times. On top of this, his hunger and desire to advance his sonic quest creates an unshakable sense that there's a great deal more to come from this fast-rising artist.
