About Pegboard Nerds

Since joining forces in 2004, Michael Parsberg and Alexander Odden have accumulated hundreds of millions of plays online and developed a loyal following among their fanbase dubbed #NerdNation. After Billboard called the duo a “must-see act,” esteemed DJ veterans from Rob Swire (Pendulum/Knife Party) to Steve Aoki have raved about their style and the production genius of their work.

Their cartoon alter egos and trademark pixelated hearts have distinguished them from ordinary DJs as an unforgettable brand. Working with the biggest EDM names such as Nervo, Knife Party, Excision, Jauz, Snails and NGHTMRE, the Pegboard Nerds are here to wreak havoc in the dance music community.

The Journalism behind the Music

All music in this project is based on The Outlaw Ocean, a New York Times Best-Selling book by Ian Urbina that chronicles lawlessness at sea around the world. This reporting touches on a diversity of abuses ranging from illegal and overfishing, arms trafficking at sea, human slavery, gun running, intentional dumping, murder of stowaways, thievery of ships and other topics.
