Through ingenious combinations of pop, hip-hop and R&B, the Grammy-winning songwriting/production team Stargate, composed of Norwegians Mikkel Eriksen and Tor Hermansen, has crafted massive hits for some of today's biggest artists. Stargate is a constant fixture on the charts, responsible for a wide range of unstoppable songs including Katy Perry's "Firework,” Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow” and Rihanna's "Only Girl (in the World)," “S&M” and “What’s My Name,” as well as songs for Beyoncé, Whitney Houston, Ne-Yo, Lionel Richie and Shakira. The duo has also teamed up with Jay-Z to launch the record label StarRoc, proving that these musical impresarios know their way around the business of music as well. Both Tor and Mikkel are experienced instrumentalists, and the solid musical core they bring to every production is the key to the durability of their music. Adding to that killer beats and great melodies, Stargate works with each artist to create the perfect showcase for the artist's talents and strengths. In this special Master Session, Tor and Mikkel will share the inspiration and craft behind their biggest hits, breaking down how they take a song from a concept to the studio to the top of the charts.
