plumbo_smallHåkon Drange is based in Oslo, Norway, and goes by the alias of “plumbo” when he play records. His interest for music goes way back to the early days of his childhood, playing the keyboard and other instruments in the school orchestra. It was when he listened to the Norwegian National Radio he first discovered electronic music, and from that time he was hooked.

He started as a DJ in 1998 when he was fourteen, and as the years went by his taste in music developed along as he got to play in pubs and nightclubs in his hometown. Originally born on the Norwegian west coast, the possibilites for playing house music out were very limited, and in 2004 he moved across the country to study in Oslo. Here he finally got the opportunity to share his music with a bigger crowd.

In Oslo the hard work started to pay off. Impressive mixtapes resulted in gigs at several clubs and parties. He has played his groovy and sexy house alongside 16 Bit Lolitas, Oliver Moldan, Inkfish, Omid 16B, Nima Gorji, Alex Niggemann, Federico Molinari and back to back with balErik, Mario and Bart. Several others have felt the unique atmosphere with plumbo behind the decks at the best clubs in Oslo like Sikamikanico, Club Pi, Feber, Club Stereo and several more in Haugesund, Trondheim and Askim, halfway around the world from Bondi Social at the infamous Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia, to Kanya Beach Club in Ibiza.

Together with balErik, Kimito Lopez and Nicco he did a monthly concept night called Bang! at former Club Pi, in addition to the Spitzy radioshow at Norwegian Internet Radio Skranglebass.

plumbo was also a member of the Serum team who did the bookings at former Club Pi in Oslo which got awarded “Club of the year 2006″ in Nattguiden.no.

In November 2008 he joined forced with Bart and started the club night Perfecto! at Club Sikamikanico, with great success. You can expect more groovy house and tech-house from these guys in the future.
