Here's a few things the Scandinavians are known for: crime thrillers, Vikings, and electronic music. Up and coming Swedish producer Alex Öberg-Beswick/A.O.B has been making music for almost ten years and adopts what he calls a 'deep and spacey' production style to his eclectic and high-energy niche, but he also possesses a kind of raw charm that comes from an early love of rock music – namely Metallica – and the whole thing all blends together rather tastefully.

Following a 5-year stint as producer, keys-player, and the electronic half of percussion in drum'n'bass/rock outfit AnExitStrategy, based around London, Beswick moved back to the motherland after deciding to focus solely on music, where he has churned out a disturbing number of diverse and colourful remixes and a bleak and minimalist but hard-hitting original track, 'Shadow Grooves', written with fellow producer Ali-R.

Expect big things from this musically versed and formidable producer.
