Reset is a Norwegian musical group.

Reset started as a one man studio project in 1994 by Stig Antonsen, but was never finished. He decided to start again in 1996 with two friends, Trude Barstad and Christian Onshus. They released a single in the summer of 1996 called "U R My Dream"[1] on the Sony Music label Dance Pool. The group split up after only six months together.

In late 1998 Stig was working with Camilla Henningsen on "Oh What A Day", a song that later would be included on the "Play" album. They decided to start Reset again and called in Thomas Borgvang, a local Radio DJ. The first song that was recorded with all 3 members was "Makin' Me Feel". The band performed their first gig in December 1998 at the NRJ Christmas-party at the Oslo Spektrum together with artists such as Snap!, Sash!, Solid Base & Jocelyn Brown.

2 months later, they signed a 4 album deal with the German record-company Edel Records. The single "Blue" was released in June 1999 and is until today the biggest selling Norwegian dance single ever, selling 18,000 copies. Their next single "Get Me" also became a huge success and reached a top 5 position on the Norwegian charts. In November 1999 Reset released their debut album Play and a few months later they received a Gold record for the album in Norway. They also released "Makin' Me Feel" as a single in 2000.

The band toured most parts of the country and appeared in almost every TV Show in Norway. In 2001 they presented a brand new live show, a new logo and of course new songs from the forthcoming album, released in late summer 2001. The first single from the new album was the catchy dance track "Calling You". The song spent 11 weeks on the Norwegian Top 20, and broke all records on the National Chart Show "10 I Skuddet". They became the first band for over 30 years that has been number one on the chart for 20 weeks without any interruptions. The second single from the album, "Say I'm The One" was released on May 7, 2001. Then followed by the single "Say Yeah" and promo single "Wings of Love".

In 2002 the band then took a break to focus on solo projects. But in the spring of 2009 they teamed up again, and are currently working on new material with their new single "Just Say Yeah" being released on December 1, 2009.[2] They are also doing various shows around Norway.
