The phrase 'keeping it in the family' is sometimes a double-edged sword. Sure, you get to work with siblings you love and trust - but what if they're (whisper it) not very good? Thankfully, that couldn't be further from the truth for young Swedish buck Antoine Josefsson AKA AN21, whose brother Steve Angello is one third of the mighty Swedish House Mafia. This super-talented young producer has been consuming music constantly since he was a child - although ironically, he wasn't always a fan of the music he was surrounded by at home. "It's true that I grew up loving music," he smiles. ...show more
The phrase 'keeping it in the family' is sometimes a double-edged sword. Sure, you get to work with siblings you love and trust - but what if they're (whisper it) not very good? Thankfully, that couldn't be further from the truth for young Swedish buck Antoine Josefsson AKA AN21, whose brother Steve Angello is one third of the mighty Swedish House Mafia. This super-talented young producer has been consuming music constantly since he was a child - although ironically, he wasn't always a fan of the music he was surrounded by at home. "It's true that I grew up loving music," he smiles.
"But when I was young, I thought my brother's music was crap! It wasn't until I started growing up and got my first real gig at a club that I got my first taste of club culture." But again, it wasn't quite the experience he was hoping for. "I was expecting something really good since I'd seen so many scenes in movies - but that night was TERRIBLE! So bad that I got disappointed and said to myself that I would start my own club nights in Sweden!" Given that Steve and Seb were his literal and spiritual music brothers- "Steve Angello is my brother and Sebastian Ingrosso has always been like a brother to me since he was always at the house when we were growing up" - it's no surprise that clubland would come calling - but it was another two years before Antoine would find his appetite for great music sated. "I played a bit everywhere and started building my reputation. Two years later I turned 18 and I got my own night once a month at one of the best clubs in Sweden; six months later I got to play at more nights at some other clubs and now I have my own nights on at the best clubs in Sweden." Ask him which DJs have helped shape his sound and although he says it's a tough question to answer, when pushed he says that he loves everyone from Joris Voorn and Carl Cox to Luciano, Steve Lawler, "my brother of course!" and Erick Morillo.
Music-wise, it won't be long before every single one of those DJs is hammering his productions. He's remixed music for major artists like Basement Jaxx ('Raindrops') and Tommy Sparks already but he also has an EP upcoming on his brother's label Size. Because like his brother - and the DJs he loves - Antoine's productions are all about great drops, great builds and bags of energy. House music with melody and emotion. ...show less
