Coming from a more acoustic musical background where he experimented and improvised with jazz, blues, and funk, Sofus Forsberg was born north of Copenhagen in 1970.
Since quite a while he now lives in Berlin, and has gained deep inspiration from everything around him, and the fact that the German capital is so active in the electronic music movement.
From the early days back in 1992 he has played all over the world, including numerous concerts with his guitar and his band, and from 1998 in electronic music gigs. Sofus is also a teacher. He is generous in spreading his knowledge, and has a lot of experience with all the aspects of music creation.
Although he has relatively few releases, his live shows have made him one of the crucial personalities of the Danish electronic music scene.
His latest release, FM Volta, on the Berlin based Mindwaves Music, shows Forsberg’s love of modular synthesizers and drum machines, through which he creates his melodic bliss, rhythmically experimental, and extremely beautiful music. This album is full of diversity, and curiously explores many aspects of today’s IDM music.
With his broad and often non-compromising taste, his music removes time and space, breaks down genres, brings art to the dance floor, and activates the body with the goal to transcend through the activation of higher consciousness.
Sofus’ goal is to keep researching sounds with the continuous intent of connecting people. He definitely believes that together we can reach another level.
