GiddyGang is an Oslo-based collection of talented musicians wanting to make the world a giddier place. Their music is built on solid old school hip-hop beats, heavily indebted to the likes of J Dilla or the Roots. However, as the members have musical backgrounds in gospel, Nordic jazz and soul, the band swirls in sounds from all kinds of beautiful places. The result is surprisingly cohesive, confident and – less surprisingly – fun and uplifting. As part of a young generation inheriting a world filled with strife, stress and difficulties, GiddyGang wants to inspire kindness and help people cope.
Their debut mixtape was put together during lockdown to be a beacon of positivity and joy in extremely challenging times. Collaborators on their first release include rapper and trumpet player Tennishu from Butcher Brown and South African/ Norwegian rapper Vuyo who rejoined the group for their latest release «Sour». Vuyo will also be part of the live show, delivering laid back bars with his perfect flow.
