After a frantic decade as Oslo’s leading DJ duo, it was only a matter of time before Patski Love and Chris Stallion, better known as Club Juicy, took their love for music to the next level.
In 2015 they joined forces with Spellemann winning producer Alexander Austheim AKA RykkinnFella (Karpe Diem, Isac Elliot) under the moniker JCY. In the summer of 2016, the newly formed trio released their debut single feat. Cal, AKA Frida Amundsen, and they haven’t taken their foot off the gas since.
After 8 million streams and 14 weeks on the top 50 Spotify Norway charts, JCY have teamed up with the legendary Sisqó.
The “Thong Song” star had never re-recorded his 1999 mega hit - until JCY were able to lure him into the studio. The result will be released on the 9th of June, and you wouldn’t bet against this Norwegian-American collaboration being a worldwide summer hit. The JCY crew will shortly be flying to Florida to shoot the music video with Sisqó himself.
The JCY fairytale began with their 2015 official remix of Madcon’s “Don’t Worry”, and their track “Wasting Your Time” with Alida on vocal duty has dominated NRK Radio P3’s playlists in 2017.
Under the moniker Club Juicy, Chris Stallion and Patski Love (otherwise known as Chris Welsh and Patrick Hauge) have put on hundreds of parties in and around Oslo. But the club gurus haven’t kept their floor-filling brand of irresistible dance tracks to themselves - they’ve taken their Scandinavian love potion to world cities like New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Paris and Berlin.
An exhaustive list of famous collaborators would be too long, but during the past few years Club Juicy have played for and with artists like Snoop Dogg, The Chainsmokers, Calvin Harris, Lil Jon, Major Lazer, Zedd and Steve Aoki.
In addition to their mutual appreciation for sneakers, studio geekery and dry humour, JCY share an unrivalled passion for - and understanding of - pop music.
RykkinnFella was selected for Norwegian superstar producer duo Stargate’s Masterclass of 2011, and has totalled 60 million streams ranging from pop anthems to acclaimed Norwegian hip hop.
British Norwegian Chris Stallion traces the start of his DJ career to his boyhood bedroom, and can list his own record company, radio show and a Spellemann nominated rap group (Oslo Fluid) on his résume.
Patski Love made mixtapes and DJ-ed at his local youth club while he was still in Primary school, and became a mainstay on the Scandinavian charts in the late 90s with Norwegian hip hop sensation Multicyde.
“Thong Song” feat. Sisqó is out on Warner Music Norway on the 9th of June.
