Welcome to a New Year special edition of THE SUNRISE SESSIONS, kicking off the new year with a lovely mix from Norway’s First Lady of all things eclectic, ambient and cosmic, Helene Rickhard. Helene is a record collector, DJ and producer from the coastal town of Arendal in southern Norway, where she lives with her synths, records and a cat called Enya.
Well known for her eclectic musical taste, she is often to be found behind the decks at clubs and festivals across the Nordics, most notably Camp Cosmic, Zone Disco Autonome and Skogsfestivalen in Sweden. Her cassettes and mixtapes for Dream Chimney, HMD Records, Origin Peoples and Dublab are definitely worth checking out.
Check out the official video of her most recent track ‘Melodi Os2’ which appeared on the Drum Island Records compilation album Sommer 3 – Ambient, Balearic & New Age from Norway compiled by Rune Lindbæk.
A big thanks to Helene for finding the time to record this mix for the series!
