The nerds of this EDM duo are Michael Parsberg and Alexander Odden. Coming from Denmark and Norway, the pair met back in 2005, and have since created over 200 Pegboard Nerds remixes. Under the Canadian Monstercat label, the Pegboard Nerds have set up camp to tour the hottest clubs in America this summer, wooing fans with their renowned genre-blending mystique. They’ve been making their way around the EDM block for a few years now, but gained some immediate pickup with the release of their track, ‘Bass Kickin.’
The Nerds have made recent collabs with huge names on the EDM scene, including Krewella and Infected Mushroom, and were even picked to support a Knife Party show on stage, in addition to performing with Skrillex, Alesso, Dillon Francis, and Dada Life. The two artists making up Pegboard Nerds have since become, globally, a part of the in-crowd.
The past year specifically has caught the Pegboard Nerds hitting EDM festivals in the U.S. and the U.K., and throwing down in clubs from Moscow to Ibiza. Their remixing skill has come into the limelight, and more and more attention is pointing to the Pegboard Nerds as the year rolls on. The nerds have called their fans ‘the best in the world,’ and do everything they can to remain in touch with their following, even in the midst of their currently insane schedules. They recently connected with fans via a Reddit AMA, answering questions both related and unrelated to their music production. (Their favorite nonalcoholic drink is Pepsi…if you were wondering.)
The Uncaged Tour
The upcoming UNCAGED tour is the biggest headlining tour to date for our favorite Scandinavian nerds, so the announcement has been making fans go wild. They even have a feature on their site where you can vote for your city or a location near you to be placed on the Pegboard Nerds’ UNCAGED tour, and see the votes add up in real time. Some of their recent hits, including ‘Hero’ and ‘Here it Comes,’ have been hyping up the pre-tour countdown, so make sure to give them a listen to get some inspiration before signing up for the greatest Pegboard Nerds performance yet on their UNCAGED tour. If you haven’t gotten the chance to listen live, get ready to geek out while you rock out with the Pegboard Nerds this summer.
