JOEL MULL. Stockholm, Sweden. He started traveling around the globe more than a decade ago and quickly made himself well known as "The Swedish techno soul" of the electronic music world. Joel's passion for music really started in his early adolescence when he began attending a music school and spending all his time at the piano and keyboard.
In the early nineties the new phenomena "Rave" caught his attention and his interest for electronic music and recording own material led to large sums of money being spent on drum machines, samplers and synthesizers. Soon the first 12" techno track was released, a collaboration between him and school friend ADAM BEYER. It was released in 1993 on an American label based in New York called Direct Drive.
Joel's DJ Career took off when he began playing parties around the Underground clubs of Stockholm in 1994. Not long after, he got an offer to hold his first Residency three times a week at UNIT CLUB, located on the famous Reeperbahn in Hamburg, Germany. The club had just moved to a new Venue and they searched for undiscovered talents to play their techno nights. Joel was 20 at the time and this was an offer that would be one of the important ones, the chance to attend the best school a DJ could get. The venue had capacity for 1200 people. It was the first real opportunity Joel had to learn how to master the crowd through the long journey of the night. It was not unusual for him to play a 10 hour set and build his sets around different levels of styles. For over 3 years, 3 times a month, Joel was warming up, closing and playing along-side many of the important DJ's on the national and international circuit.
Moving back to Stockholm in 1997 Joel had more time to focus on his productions and in early 1998 his own imprint Inside records was born. He worked in a record shop 'Planet Rhythm' in Stockholm and had his studio under the shop. Together with ADAM BEYER, JESPER DAHLBÄCK and CARI LEKEBUSCH they provided little Sweden with freshly pressed techno vinyl records. Everything revolved around records, playing them, selling them and producing them. This was an important time in Joel's career and laid the foundations for what he has achieved today
In the recent years Joel has focused on his DJ career more than ever which has led to a hectic touring schedule. His productions and releases are also getting more attention. He also holds a residency spot on the "Drumcode" label parties that ADAM has been taking on the road for seven years. These parties have been hugely popular from the beginning.
In 2007 we saw a string of releases and collaborations from Joel with artists such as SEAN PALM, VINCENZO & XPANSUL on different labels such as, Audiomatique, Liebe details and Discos De lata. But the most important release was of course his artist Album "The Observer" on Harthouse. Soon after the release he did a series of limited live performances at various clubs around the globe including Japan, EU and North America. He integrateded Ableton live into his DJ set and used the mixer 3D from Allen&Heath to combine the two systems. The result was a fantastic.
2008 was also a busy year for Joel. With remixes and single releases for NIC FANCIULLI and Saved records. The Face up EP was played the whole summer by all the usual suspects.
The track "Red Light of dawn" released on Audiomatique got licensed to Steve Lawlers great VIVA serie. And was favoured by many players. Also Cocoon recordings have taken him under their wing and more releases for the label are due to go out.
Truesoul, Audiomatique, Drumcode, Saved records, Cocoon, Harthouse and Railyard recordings are SOME of the platforms which aid him spreading the message today. Joel's tunes are getting played by many of the key figures in the electronic dance community, DJ's such as SASHA, DIGWEED, LOCO DICE, ADAM BEYER, STEVE RACHMAD, NIC FANCIULLI and HEIKO LAUX are all big supporters of his sound.
He will definitely be known as one of the few who more than rode but created the wave of electronic music and he will always be mentioned regarding Swedish techno!
