Stockholm-based Mikael Jonasson is a long serving DJ and producer who continues to push the boundaries of modern club music with his amazingly crafted, rather rare techno productions.
With recent releases on labels like EXILE, Figure and Drumcode, Mikael has earned the support and attention from all the key players in the techno scene, resulting in a busy schedule of gigs around the world. His latest stops included the legendary Berghain in Berlin, Lehmann in Stuttgart, Privilege on Ibiza, Dockyard Festival during ADE in Amsterdam or Lantern in Bejing.
Starting out as a drummer in early years, attending municipal music education, led to the later interest in electronic music. Being a part of the Swedish rave culture in the late 90´s, Mikael started to collect pretty much every analogue synthesizer he could afford. What started out as experimental sounds evolved and matured over the years into music, and back in 1999 Mikael´s first vinyl record was released.
Hard struggle in the studio and behind the decks, in combination with being a highly sought after producer in the international techno-scene has resulted in a variety of high quality releases topping the techno charts over a significant period of time.
In 2016 Mikael decided to team up with Johannes Heil, Markus Suckut and Andre Kronert as part of the EXILE imprint. Over the next years we will see a steady flow of releases and label events connected to these four producers and their mutual virtues and values that reach far beyond the music and the bussiness of the electronic music scene.
Right now Mikael continues to build his own intricate sound, characterised by an unique sound design and his attention to details. Strongly supported by fans, radio-stations and DJs around the globe, Mikael´s journey continues. Artistry through techno, 2017 style.
