DINNER ist krank! Leute wir sind tottraurig, aber unser Künstler des Abends liegt im Bett. Das Konzert muss leider ausfallen. Kommt gern trotzdem auf ein Bierchen in unsere Café-Bar vorbei… wir freuen uns über Gäste.
Dinner is the alias for Danish producer and singer Anders Rhedin. Dinner leads a nomadic existence, dividing his time between LA, Berlin and Copenhagen. In the last two years, he has put out three EPs and a guided meditation tape.
One could argue that there’s something inherently idiosyncratic about Dinner’s music—like the world’s most unlikely pop artist. Sometimes Dinner sounds like a long-lost mixtape from the local Dusseldorf pop scene in the early 1980s. Other times he sounds something like the soundtrack to David Lynch directing Miami Vice, or Genesis P-Orridge embracing Italian pop-infused Danish darkwave, or like a male descendant of Nico singing Eno-esque pop songs on discarded Julian Cope tracks.
Does Dinner see himself as a pop star from a parallel universe, as one blog recently suggested he might be? “I’m more like the village idiot singing stadium rock hymns,” he says.
