Jonas Stenberg (Sweden)
A classically trained musician since childhood, Jonas Stenberg moved on to compose EDM in the late 90's.
After years of shaping his sound, Jonas became a resident on Marcel Woods' acclaimed Musical Madness imprint. Dark energy, powerful synthlines and percussive drive form three essential track elements.
In the DJ Mag top 100 feature, Jonas was named twice as the breakthrough DJ/Producer for 2009 (by Rank 1 and Marcel Woods).
Recent releases include singles and remixes on High Contrast, Spinnin' and Ultra Records. For 2010, about ten releases are planned already: With remixes for Rank 1 vs Jochen Miller and Tiesto, collaborations with W&W, Artento Divini and Dave Schiemann, and solo tracks on Spinnin' and Musical Madness to name some of them, you need to stay closely tuned not to miss the accelerating pace of Jonas' career.
Currently, he works part-time as a sales engineer for detection systems used in cancer research, while the rest of his time is devoted to music.
As he is always on the lookout for new sounds and tune approaches, we have only seen the tip of Stenberg's musical iceberg...
Read on for his upcoming show dates and releases, and the verdicts on some of his releases.
