1 As your music career is the most near thing to timeless. What time you choose to work it when your mind needs to bring ideas to the present? the past or the future ?
that comment made my day :) thank you so much! i know that it might be stupid but the past is way more important to me music wise, i want to re-experience things that i remember, or how i remember them. but the mind play tricks on me and what comes out is a mixture of past and the present, and there is where i find the future. dreams from the past, technology from the present makes my future
be there for my family no matter what!
my introduction to the swedish “techno” scene came from labels like swemix, remixed records, BTB and ohm, frequent producer names on these labels was believe it or not sten hallström (stonebridge) and dag volle (denniz pop). swemix later on become chairon and turned totally commercial with britney spears and things like that. but these guys at that time, next to producers like emil hellman, dragonfly was early adopters of the house and techno movement in the rest of the world and brought it to sweden. Then came cari, robert leiner (the source experience), alexi and bunch of other guys, a label called loop records that was founded by vito ingrosso (sebastian ingrossos father). loop and it’s sister label plump house next to planet rhythm (wwe) was the springboard for so many of the techno artist that put sweden on the world map. jesper dahlback, adam beyer, alexi delano, cari lekebusch, joel mull, thomas chrome, fredrick almquist.
i probably forgot some essential stuff but that’s how i remember things until 1996 :)
simon haydo, peder mannerfelt, towlie, lemieux, mr. tophat & art alfie, petter b, jesse granqvist,
that’s a natural reaction to me, when things are getting to accessible people’s natural reaction is to break a way and pave new ways. but not to forget that most people discover the underground after getting tired of the overground :)
unfortunately it’s all about my mind :)
