Johan Forsman is still active as a record producer/engineer and is currently a member of Tapefly.

Early career[edit]

Forsman began recording artists in the late eighties using simple formulas of recording. Only equipment fabricated prior to 1980 were permitted in the studio. This resulted in a non typical sound for the late eighties era. Among the first bands that had their early recordings engineered by Forsman were Broder Daniel and psychedelic rock group Whipped cream and other delights. Karin Dreijers Honey is Cool and Silverbullit. Eventually Forsman caught the attention of Union Carbide Productions front men Ebbot Lundberg, Björn Olsson and Ian Person as they were looking for someone to record their new band, the Soundtrack of our lives. Between 1994 to 1996 the pre-productions for TSOOL's first 2 double albums were recorded. Some of this material can be found under the name the Romelanda sessions.

Record production[edit]

This year Johan also worked as engineer on Swedish multi platinum selling Det är ni som är konstiga, det är jag som är normal by Thåström.
