With the next release on Tabernacle Records now imminent, we thought it would be good a time to share some more information on the multi-talented Swede in question. Our first meeting with Daniel (camera and Stella in hand) was at a music festival in Wales back in 2007. We soon found out that as well as making some intriguing electronic music he was also an excellent photographer. Sharing our passion in certain techno music, he visited us in Glasgow a number of times and has taken some wonderful shots of the city and of our Slabs parties.

His own label autodidaktrecords has been steadily releasing 7”s since 2007. From lo-fi folk to ghetto and breakcore, each record varies greatly in genre. He is working with New York rapper Sensational for the next label release later in the year.
To complement the wide variety in his music he has taken on different aliases such as Johnny Blossom and Robert Wales. Robert Wales is his experimental, mysterious sounding project that sees Daniel singing alongside an acoustic guitar, toy pianos, accordions and whatever else he can get his hands on. The main idea is to record the songs spontaneously and not to change anything in them.
Johnny Blossom on the other hand is his manic acid alter ego.
TABR004, The Sentinel E.P. will be released in May.
