Basshunter is a truly unique dance music act conceived and performed by Swedish singer-songwriter and record producer Jonas Altberg. Having begun his musical career singing in a choir, it wasn’t long before Basshunter took his first steps into dance music. The year 2001 saw Basshunter produce music under his newfound stage name, six-months after he first started to use Fruity Loops. Several years later, Basshunter was ready to release his first album, The Bassmachine, primarily through the Alex Music label.
Having performed as a disc jockey for a number of Swedish nightclubs, Basshunter continued to distribute much of his music through the internet. This included releases through a number of online platforms, including gaming websites and his own official website. Basshunter’s definitive breakthrough as a dance music producer occurred following the release of his iconic song Boten Anna, a track which was initially published online. In only several months’ time, the song was downloaded over one million times.
