Erik (balErik) Molthe, is one of the leading DJs in the Oslo underground
house music scene since he started DJing in 2001. One of Erik’s nights,
Dirty Grooves, got nominated best club night of the year 2 years in a
row in an online clubbing magazine as well as being nominated ‘DJ of the
year’ by same magazine 3 times.

Erik has played with some of the best DJs in the world including Desyn
Masiello, Omid16B, Demi, Danny Howells, Rowan Blades, Luke Fair, Nic
Fanciulli, Audiofly, Yousef to name a few. balErik’s blend of deep house
and driving techno music has taken him to gigs around the world in
places such as London, Russia, Poland, Croatia, San Francisco, Miami,
New York, Bulgaria, Finland, Sweden, Latvia and Dubai.

Erik dedicates all his spare time to his musical passion. Whether he is
making music, hunting for tunes, promoting for his next party, doing
edits or special remixes music is always on his mind. His dedication has
gained him support from the likes of Digweed, Deep Dish, Behrouz and
Nic Fanciulli and Desyn Masiello, who gave him a position as A&R for
his Alternative Route record label because of his keen ear for finding
amazing new tracks.

In 2007 balErik set up a new digital label, Discoteca Music, with his
partners Dana Bergquist, Tom Morgan, Luke Fair and Somnus corp. The
label has numerous successful releases including two that are included
on Renaissance and Global Underground compilations.

Erik has begun producing his own tracks with his partner Vadim Yershov,
which is proving to be quite a successful duo. They recently released
and EP on Timewriter’s Plastic City label and they have a few in the
pipeline for Discoteca Music this year including ‘‘Do Your Dance’ and
‘Everybody’. This year we can also expect their boot leg of Earth Wind
and Fire’s song System Of Survival, which has been picked up by Guillame
and the Couto Dumonts who will be releasing it as an exclusive white
label.

As Discoteca Music grows in popularity with each EP released, balErik is
making sure this momentum keeps growing by finding the artists of today
who are making the music of tomorrow. He incorporates all these musical
gems into his sets which make them so unique, a nice blend of old and
new, tech and house and everything in between mixed in such a fluid way
your body just can’t stop moving!
