A three-dimensional kaleidoscope of electropop, the very singular world of Lokoy feels lightyears away from his other life as the bassist of acclaimed Norwegian riot-punkers Sløtface. Hailed by NME for his sonic ambition, Lokoy's sound is said to be “more at home with Gorillaz than Green Day”.
It all started when Lasse Lokøy was in the midst of a gruelling world tour with Sløtface in support of their raucous debut album, 'Try Not To Freak Ouť. Suffering from motion sickness in the back of the van and to unable to read or watch TV, his attention turned to his own music when he switched on Logic.
Having always had a disdain for rules and now free from the restrictions of a traditional rock band set-up, his knack for sampling collided with his love of hip-hop, R&B, pop and electronica to help find something truly to call his own. His debut EP, ‘Can We All Go To Bed', defied genre and was bursting with promise. Containing collaborations with the multi-million streaming dePresno and award-winning rising star Girl In Red, as well as working with rapper Safario and GABIFUEGO (the reggaeton side project from Boy Pablo’s Gabriel Munoz) plus a project with mischievous pop queen Uffie, Lokøy's take on emotive summery pop won the attention of critics and radio airplay across the globe.
