As a trained Violinist and composer for theÂ Swedish National Theatre, Joelâ€™s first steps into the world of electronic composition came with an exotic mixture of classical influence and modern inspiration, from acts such asÂ Depeche Mode,Jean-Michel Jarre andÂ Front 242. A key figure on the Swedish music scene since 1995, Joel has always seen his music as stemming from the meeting of a variety of artforms. His first steps onto the international circuit came with the signing of material to Int.Â DeeJay Gigolo andÂ Minus. Since then, he has developed a strong relationship with Hamburg label,Â Room With A View, featuring on seven releases since early 2009, as well as releasing on Berlin based labelÂ Sweatshop. It was Januaryâ€™sÂ â€˜Preaching To The Choirâ€™ on Room With A View,Â a track that became a firm favourite withÂ Dâ€™Julz, and included on hisÂ Rex Club compilation, that lead to a request for an EP for Bass Culture. TheÂ â€˜Silence Is Goldenâ€™ EP is a broad, four track selection, showcasing the sounds and style of the Swede.
