Jan Blomqvist (live)
Music is emotion, and through electronic music emotions are transfered more easily when the sound is warm and organic as opposed to canned and cold. Those who've listened to Jan Blomqvist know that his music definitely doesn't belong to the latter category because the sounds he uses are 100 % self-formed and perfectly underscore his distinct and secure voice, making his music alive and close.
For over 7 years he was the singer, bassist and songwriter of a band who rocked North Germany with a dark melodic grunge-rock sound. After moving to Berlin and being inspired by her influences Jan found his passion in electronic music. Making a tough decision to quit the band, he traded his guitar for an apc40 and 5x8Spur-Matrix and began producing and performing solo.
Today his sound has can be described as a mixture of Radiohead, Muse, Bodi Bill, Stephan Bodzin and James Holden - a beautiful balancing act between melancholic, melodic electro-pop and euphoric minimal techno making Jan one of the most interesting and promising young artist in Berlin at the moment.
