Founded by Scott Heller aka Dr. Space (synth, management) in 2004 Øresund Space Collective are a multinational crew which get together as often as possible to play free form improvised space rock music. The band name derives from the Øresund Bridge, connecting Denmark and Sweden since the year 2000. The purpose is to offer another flavour with every new session. This is guaranteed by everlasting line-up changes. The whole OSC family comprises more than 30 members in the meanwhile, temporarily entrusted by nearly every existing Nordic psych/space band. They have toured all over in Europe whilst collaborating with Sula Bassana and others. The musical trademark is provided by a grooving backbone in general. This is decorated by playful multiple guitars and a proper proportion of synthesizer and organ input…
The Scandinavian Space Rock super group are back with their 33rd release. The CD/LP features one 62min track split over 3 album sides., that we recorded in the studio back in 2014. The same session that gave us the Different Creatures and Visions of, LPs and features some of the best musicians from the Scandinavian prog rock field. This is about as Prog Rock as the band has ever been with the track taking many different musical journeys over the 3 album sides. Side D of the vinyl contains a full length version (CD contains an edit) that is a unique mixture of Indian raga and space music with just synthesizer (Dr Space), sitar (KG), violin (Jonathan), bass (Hasse) and drums (Tim) from our 2016 studio session.
This is the bands 27th (?) studio album release and 38th physical release. The material on this record was recorded in October 2010 on the 2nd day of recording and featured a lot of different musicians from Days 1 and 3. Some of the material from this session was previously released on a bandcamp subscriber LP. The main track on that album, Crusin´with the Alien Crew, appears as a bonus track on the CD version as well as one additional bonus track not on the LP (*). Some of the tracks have been edited for the vinyl edition which will come out later in the year. A lot of the material has a funky nature but it is a very diverse album with a nice chill out sitar number, a uptempo country track and a lot of space rock!!!

This is the last material from our amazing studio session from Nov 2016 that we will release for now. A truly eclectic album featuring material that ranges from Afrobeat like to Miles Davis to Tangerine Dream… A sonic journey…
This was the last show of our 4 show mini-tour of Sweden and Finland in Oct 2018. The band was on fire from the start with a killer high energy set.This was released and given away to our subscribers in March 2019 but a limited number are to be sold on bandcamp and at shows in May-June 2019.
The Øresund Space Collective is back with 2013 studio album, the bands 16th release. The material on this gatefold album was recorded at the Black Tornado studios in Copehagen in April 2012. It is the same studio where all of the bands studio releases have been made. The Sessions were heavily guitar dominated as was the last studio session from 2010 but the level of solo intensity was lifted up a notch as Daniel and Nicklas lay down some amazing melodic, spacey and ripping guitar on these exploratory tracks. Besides the opening track, Walking on Clouds, the rest of the tracks were totally improvised. The songs presented here were engineered by Lars Lundholm, mixed by Daniel (in his home studio in Colorado in 2012) and mastered by Johan Dahlström in Feb 2013. The fantastic artwork is by the amazing Finnish artist Eetu Pellonpåå.
This live release was captured on the occasion of their celebrating 10 years of live Oresund Space Collective concerts. The first concert was at their local favorite club, Dragens Hule (RIP) in Feb 2005. Since that time the collective grew greatly from the roots of Mantric Muse and Bland Bladen to a multi-international collective of like minded musicians. The amazing venue, Loppen in Christiania was the site of this amazing night, which featured 3 sets of music with three completely different line up of musicians. Dr Space played in all three sets but all the rest of the musicians switched out for each set.
Limited edition CD-R 100 copies- Released for bandcamp subscribers in Sept 2019 and for the rest of the world on Oct 25th, 2019. This was a very powerful show from the band and a great mix by Jonathan.

Features some of the most amazing sitar and very cool violin.
