Pjusk is a duo from the west coast of Norway. Jostein Dahl Gjelsvik started doing electronic music in the early nineties techno scene and played live around the country with the Neural Network band. A dozen releases have since appeared both solo and in various bands. Most prominently the Circular project which released several acclaimed albums on the same label as the Biosphere work of that era. Rune Andre Sagevik was an early party promoter way out in the vividly beautiful countryside in the deep fjords. He started doing electronic music a decade ago. The Pjusk project began when Jostein many years later heard one of these tracks on the radio. He liked it so much that he made contact with Rune and a fruitful, productive collaboration started in 2005. In the two years that have passed they have released work on compilations and their debut album Sart, on 12k in New York.
