|I was born in 1973 and grew up in Ludvika in Sweden. Everything has always been about music for me. From the age of 2 I was a big Abba-fan, but then I discovered electronic music in the early 80s. Day in and out I used to listen to the music of Depeche Mode, Howard Jones, Tangerine Dream, Jean-Michael Jarre and I was a vinyl-junkie by the age of 14. I was fortunate to discover bands like Skinny Puppy, Front 242 and The Klinik at an early stage, and experienced the rise and fall of Electronic Body Music and the birth of european techno. I started making music with a Korg Poly 800 II and a Roland TR-505 in 1986, but gradually expanded my collection of sythesizers, drummachines and sequensers. For many years I was using Atari with Cubase and I must have made several hundred tracks over the years. Most of them sounding truly awful.
In the early 90's I was getting bored with the hard and aggressive attitude of industrial and EBM and found solace in bands like Cocteau Twins, Lush, Dead Can Dance and The Cure. Then something happened that suprised me, MTV introduced me to a new kind of electronic sounds that I found most appealing. Thanks to Chill Out Zone I discovered artists like FSOL and Aphex Twin. And while further investigating the developing "intelligent" scene, I was introduced to harder techno and acid. I fell in love with the sound of Cologne, and I spent years hunting all those colorful records from Structure, Dj.ungle Fever, Profan etc.
Then I had enough. For every record I bought I was only more convinced I could never make anything as good. I was lacking production technology, and I couldn't afford any high quality mixers, effects or even the most wanted synthesizers. So in 1997 I quit, thinking that some day it would be cheap enough to make the best possible music with only a computer. And that day came much sooner than I anticipated.
Since 2000 I'm making tracks again and this time I was so satisfied with the result that I decided to send out some demos. Now I'm releasing records...
