Minilogue are the Swedish Progressive House/Tech-House/Minimal Techno music project of Sebastian Mullaert and Marcus Henriksson. The name is a portmanteau of minimal (the musical style) and dialogue, which refers to music as a form of communication.
Lovers of electronic music have been esteeming Minilogue for many years. In 2009 it is almost impossible to imagine club music without the two musicians from Malmö, Sweden. Nowadays, electronic producers tend to retreat into their special stylistic niche - Minilogue dare to draw the bigger picture. After releasing outstanding productions on such renowned labels as Traum, Crosstown Rebels or Wagon Repair, there opus magnum is to appear on Sven Väths Cocoon Recordings. There are few producers who match Cocoon's vision of an electronic sound both on the dancefloor and beyond the club so perfectly
Minilogue have always been very interested in the visual aspect of their art, it is natural for them to create a visual image as well as an audible one. For many years they have thought of animals as the front for Minilogue. These animals do not actually exist as pets. They are mystic, imaginary creatures, merged together from different species. They function as symbols for Minilogue's approach to electronic music as a mix of different genres and styles.
As a VJ Kristofer Ström mixes everything live, every VJ-set is unique, he even makes stop-frame animation live. Where other VJ's mostly use others material Kristofer creates all his own graphics and elements. He creates new worlds from the archive of looped animations of his characters and other things. All these characters and creatures react to the present music in different ways
When not VJing he's an animator, director and musician. He's directed and animated two popular videos for Minilogue and a lot of commercials (MTV, Adidas, Carphone Warehouse) in different countries.
If you live in the UK and like the X-factor you've seen his work every week, many times.
