Sveinbjörn Bjarki Jónsson and Birkir Björnsson

Northern Lights Orchestra - NLO

Producers, programmers, keyboardplayer, bassplayer

Tell us a little bit about your self.

We are 26 and 28 years old, living in Reykjavik, Iceland.

We started creating music when we were very young, about 3-4 years old, Bjarki working on his older brothers synths and piano. Birkir then picked up John Taylors style in the 80s.

Main influences regarding electronic music, come from Kraftwerk, DM, DAF and Front242.

Main projects

  • Mind in Motion - Oldschool band
  • Yukatan - Rock band from the block
  • Space Man Spliff - Progressive band with DJ Grétar

What do you think about the Helga soft synth?

It's simple. Helga is the only "soft-synth" we use! It's so easy to use and the interface is so close to being the real thing. Easy to program with midi keyboard as well.

Top grade product.
