    As a kid I used to go to the musicstore after school, just to find myself standing for hours enchanted by the mysterious sounds coming out from all the synthezisers that covered the walls. It was somehow the sound of the future and it allways stayed in my mind as an echo. My parents bought me a keyboard, totally unaware of the difference. I wanted to create my own sounds. Years later i bought my first real synth and a drum machine. With my Prophet 2000(sampler/synth) and my Roland 707 drummachine I started to make my first tracks. It was the early 90ties and I was totally consumed by the emerging ravescene, spending the weekends in dark clubs or in giant warehouses. These were the days that techno really went big in Sweden for the first time. One day I heard a track on my favourite radiostation that really made an impact. The guy who did the track was named Roni Size and this is how I met Drum n´Bass. No one played that music in Gothenburg at that time so we just had to do it ourself. I and a couple of friends started to buy records and doing our own partys at the legendary Magasinsgatan 17. Those who remember know these were good days. I started to dj alot and played all kinds of music. Hiphop, funk, jazz and electro, all those things took me to where I am today. I don´t see any boundarys as far as music goes, but for me as an artist techno is where I really feel a freedom of expression.
