Elektrana / Saturday, July 14 2012
Johan Agebjörn was in the close-up of creation of Swedish neo-italo, hi - nrg, sintpop, and nu disco scene. His production talent and skills are renowned all over Scandinavia, and the world.
The man who invented Sally Shapiro and introduced her to the world, has drawn a whole generation of synthpop lovers into his claws and no one hopes for clemency. Using classic italo trend, and cooperating with some of the most prominent names in the world of vocals (Alan Cook, Fred Ventura, Queen Of Hearts and of course the lovely Miss Sally Shapiro), he has made it possible for himself to rightfully sit on the music scene throne. He has four released albums under his name, under his belt - "Music With Less Electricity" was made in 2006 but released in 2011, the second album done with Lisa Barr, "Mossebo" was released in 2008, "The Mountain Lake" in 2011, and "Casablanca Nights" released this year. The albums are mostly electro-ambiental, with a disco swag symptomatic of Johan’s style.
Inspired by Biosphere, Aurechr, Aphex Twin, Kraftwerk and many other names of this arty electro world, he is gradually climbing on the list where all the mentioned names already stand.
