Producer/Dj of electronic music.
Born early eighties. Van Rivers, native Henrik von Sivers. Resident, Stockholm, Sweden.
The inspiration comes from music styles ranging from sixties and seventies ska and dub, classical music to modern techno, indie rock and punk.
The contrast between melancholy and positive energy evokes the creativity within this talented Swede.
After many years behind the microphone, screaming in various punk bands, Van Rivers realized that the way to go on was behind the machines. With the stunning hit “Kill The Disco” released on Cologne based label “Boxer” during 2006 Van Rivers paved the way for dance floor success. Besides producing under the name Van Rivers, Henrik works as a recording engineer and producer for everything from local band to well know artists. He belongs to the studio complex “Five Guys and a Dog” with neighbors like Marcus Enochson and close friend The Subliminal Kid.
