- The Swedish producer will release an ambient album next month.
Johan Agebjoern will release an ambient album next month called The Mountain Lake.
The Swedish producer is best known for his work with Sally Shapiro, the electronic pop artist for whom he's produced up-tempo, Italo-style beats since 2006. Like much of his previous solo work, The Mountain Lake is more about cosmic, reflective ambient tracks, which he says were inspired by "science fiction movies, Buddhism and the Swedish landscape." Agebjoern's disco flair still comes across despite the album's somber tone, as indicated by the opening track, an ambient cover of "Spacer Woman From Mars" with Shapiro on vocals. The album also includes his remix of "The Chameleon" by Italians Do It Better group Glass Candy.
Agebjoern will release another album called Casablanca Nights in May. Though most of the details are still unconfirmed, he says it will blend his usual disco pop sound with elements of classical music, "like a radical interpretation of an Erik Satie piece."
