Alexander Johansson made his entry in the world of techno 2002 when his first record was released, together with fellow countrymen Mattias Fridell. Early before that he produced electronic dance-music at home, often accompanied by Mattias. They were inspired by the energy & rhythmic elements coming from early hard techno in the 90s. Labels such a Planet Rhythm, Tresor & Native Diffusion set their mark in their musical direction.
Originally a guitarist, Alexander started from zero with no basic knowledge how to produce these kinds of sounds, but the goal was still there. Composing on computers, drum-machines & synthesizers soon became the everyday norm for Alexander.
With the massive success from the first classic release (which was played by; amongst others: Mark Eg, Gayle San, Cristian Valera, Bas Mooy, Jeroen Liebregts) Alexander’s objective was far from done. Many releases later for legendary labels he decided to take a break from the techno scene. But he never lost his love for music & soon performed in several bands.
Little did he know that his break would last six years, however, when he returned with new interest for the dance-music area much was changed. Techno had gone through many shapes & changes and he decided to produce techno once again. In 2010 he returned with two slamming techno records, but with a slight slower modern tempo & design, with that being said those records contained elements from the hard old-school during the 90s and 00s. His comeback was welcomed by many, and once again he teamed up with Mattias Fridell.
Re-building his contacts in the scene & producing more music then ever, Alexander shows that he is back in full flavour.
