Seattle, WA music producer Torbjørn has been captivating crowds from the West coast to Europe, with a sonic experience pleasing fans of electronic and hip hop music alike. His recent release “Cliques EP” (released by ShadowTrix Music) combines the hard hitting hip hop sound of beats heard from Run The Jewels and Kendrick Lamar, and mixes in the sonic characteristics of high-energy electronic producers like G Jones and Ivy Lab. Torbjørn describes his sound as “hip-hop inspired electronic music.” The record showcases high-energy drops, trippy sound design, a collaboration with fellow ShadowTrix Music artist Subduktion, and a remix by Oregon’s Peek Levels.
