Line-up /Axel Boman (Pampa Records / Studio Barnhus)
Housewerk & Emergence are proud to announce our third internatoinal act, Swedish House innovator Axel Boman. Dont miss Axel's first ever Irish show on February 16th in Crawdaddy.
Axel is in fact the Swedish word for shoulder, but born and bred Stockholmer Mr.Boman could ...just as easily have been named Rumpa, the Swedish word for ass, since most of his life has been dedicated to moving just that body part. It was around 1992 that Axel's ass started dragging the confused youngster into all sorts of weird situations – dodgy warehouses, blooming fields, sweaty basements – just about any place that had a nice sound system and someone pumping a fat bassline through it. With his older brother already being a collector of the latest techno and house records, Naturally, production activity followed shortly.
2010 was the big breakthrough year for Axel and his ass, with the epic screw house anthem“Purple Drank”being released on DJ Koze's new Pampa Records imprint (Resident Advisor's n#6 top best tracks of 2010), going off to London to participate in the Red Bull Music Academy and starting up his own label Studio Barnhus together with Petter (Border Community) and local idiot Kornel Kovacs. 2011 has seen Axel releasing a lot of new material - “Lucky Tiger EP” on Glass Table (9.5 /10 for DJ MAG UK),“Nattsudd”on Play it Down / Made To Play, Europa on his own imprint, Studio Barnhus, as well as remixes and remixes on labels like Permanent Vacation, Moodmusic, Tartelet, Ovum Recordings.
Axel has now his own recidency each first Friday of the month at the legendary club Berns, Stockholm .. Axel Boman no-doubt knows how to make you dance with fresh tracks of supremely energetic house all linked together by some distinct bounce.
