So already 2012 has moved at some pace and were already at the Christmas edition of Lowbrow. After bringing you artists such as Steffi, Prosumer, Virginia, Kris Wadsworth, Alex Jones, Tom Demac, T.Williams, Shenoda and many more, we are very very excited about this party as its a special event for us (well they all are, but this one is extra special!!) as we can finally reveal that this will be AXEL BOMAN'S first party as the newest member of the Lowbrow crew as he takes up his OFFICIAL RESIDENCY!!! Having Axel choose us for his Leeds home means a lot to us but we need to thank you guys for this more than anyone else as your the ones that create the atmosphere and are at the heart of what we do. So on that note lets bring in Christmas 2012 like no other…..
Axel Boman (Pampa, Studio Barnhus, SE)
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, Axel started keeping a strict diet of fresh beats which has kept him alive and kicking ever since. Building a reputation for himself in the small but very friendly Stockholm club scene, he was soon acknowledged as one of Sweden’s most skillful and best looking dj dudes. Naturally, production activity followed shortly. Working out of small studios in his hometown as well as in Gothenburg (where Axel took his master degree in fine art), tracks like the underground hit “Arcimboldo” on Ourvision Recordings soon landed in the crates of connoisseurs like DJ Koze, Magda and Seth Troxler. His sounds is raw, playful and drenched in oceans of soul – just the kind of stuff the dancefloor’s of today are longing for. 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, 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 Kornél Kovacs. 2011 and 2012 have been even bigger years for Axel releasing Classics on labels like Permanent Vacation, Moodmusic, Glass Table, Hypercolour, Tartelet and of course Studio Barnhus.
And its with all that we intrude you to our New Resident!!!
In true keeping with our concept we will always strive to bring you some of the most up and coming Artists coming out of the underground scene and no one fits this description more than 'Josh Thompson' aka the super talented teenager 'Bareskin',who is a recent product of the Hypercolour A&R machine.
Josh aka BareSkin brought you his debut EP ‘Flow’ on Losking Suki which received wide spread critical acclaim-four tracks of synth heavy, garage-y tinged ,UK sounding club weapons. So impressed with his debut, the next instalment from BareSkin was fastracked to Hypercolour for his ‘Eyes’ EP.
If that’s not enough for a young man of just 18, his three piece band ‘Wire People’ have already been picked up by a major European label. We’re sure this will not be the only time you’ll hear of this project or this incredible talent that is- BareSkin.
The Winchester-residing teenager has solo EPs out with HypercolFor more information on this wondered check out a recent introducing interview he did at http://www.getsomeuk.com/introducing024-bareskin/
