Melkeveien is the moniker of Norwegian producer, Kristian Møller Johansen. He is known for running the label Dødpop Records, working with electronic music in and out of many different projects. Melkeveien’s 2014 single «Peter Pan Death Wish» is masterful electro-funk with a sinister edge and was named «one of the best tracks around» by the world renowned London Times, who added it to their Essential Track-list. In 2017 «Peter Pan Death Wish» was featured scoring an official trailer for Joaquin Phoenix and Lynne Ramsay’s new film, «You Were Never Really Here», which won best actor and director at Cannes. Melkeveien tours extensively throughout Europe and recently debuted his live band on stage to rave reviews - NRK (Norwegian National Broadcasting) said «Melkeveien Band is one of very few acts to stand out among the 100’s playing the club day at this years Øya Festival» in 2016. The band has since then played many shows in Norway and put down many hours in the studio to record the forthcoming «Hockey Pizza EP», dropping physical and digital in early 2019. The track «Thirst Issues» is set be featured on a 12" on Prins Thomas Full Pupp label later this year.
