3. Day Before
Swedish analogue electro-tech producer Johan Afterglow. Never afraid of keeping things simple, Johan often concentrate on the elemental ingredients of electronic dance music; the kick, the clap, the hihat and the bass never rushing things, building it up and breaking it down and everyone is invited to his dance.
Johan is a man of many musical faces, not a newcomer in the scene, and becoming a somewhat household name in remixing, production, DJing and hard, funky electro-tech, with releases on Capitol, Virgin, V2, EMI, Platform B, Farbenfroh, Klientele Music, 9 Records etc... Johan Afterglow shows that he's a man of many talents and tastes, ambition – expect anything from this guy!
Cable is proud to present Johan’s first for us – the “You-Boat EP”
