About the dawn of time...

In the beginning someone created the heavens, the earth and all life on the earth. This someone created humans as an image of itself, to be the dominating beings on the planet. This someone gave them the ability to create things without guidance. With that ability, they learned to master the art of music and to dance to the rhythm. They learned to put themselves into trance. These three abilities combined would soon form a new form of art, the art of electronic dance music. These ancestors accomplished through history the possibilities for the creation of www.northtribe.se.

About what was...

From atari, to commandore, to nintendo and sega! John has always loved video game music all the way back to his childhood. He learned how to master piano by playing songs from the video games Super Mario and Zelda. But at this young state in his life he did not have any understanding for what electronic music was. His interest for electronic music first came during the beginning of the 90s, arround 1992-94. It was probably with bands like 2 Unlimited, Basic Element and other euro disco bands that really caught his interest and made him understand what electronic music really was. Short after he discovered U96 and the Prodigy. And from there it has developed.

The year was 1996. A commercial on TV showed TechnoMaker, a "music" program by a swedish company. He went to store the day after to buy this program. And from there it all started.

About what is...

A lot has happened since then. I have tried many different types of music software and hardware. I was very inspired by gabber/hardcore music back in my early years as a musician. As the years went by I discovered that electronic music was a lot bigger than that and I have explored a lot of genres since.

When I compose music I mainly compose something similar to trance or house. I also compose more softer music. My main influences come from different sub genres of trance, house and ambient.
