Early life[edit]

Jonas Erik Altberg was born in Halmstad on 22 December 1984, as the son of Gunhild Elisabet (died 2016),[2] a teacher and school principal[3] and Karl Göran Altberg,[4] who worked for a construction company.[5] He has a younger brother;[6] the family lived near Tylösand.[5] At a young age he started singing in a choir his mother ran.[7] He also sang for two years in a rock band, where he became acquainted with experimental music.[citation needed] He attended Kattegattgymnasiet [pl; sv] secondary school, a technical school[5] with a focus on computer technology, but moved after two years to Sturegymnasiet [pl; sv], a secondary school in Halmstad with a music specialization.[5][8] He finished secondary school in 2005,[8] after which he attended college, but did not complete his education.[3]

Career[edit]

2001–2006: Beginnings[edit]

Altberg began producing music under the stage name "Basshunter", a reference to his musical style, at the age of 17, after six months of using the software program FruityLoops.[9] He described the name as commercial and powerful.[8]

In 2004, Basshunter was chosen in an online poll and performed live for the first time at a rave party in Älmhult.[8] Alex Music released Basshunter's first studio album, The Bassmachine, on 25 August 2004.[10] In 2005, a remastered version of this album with improved sound quality was released.[11] In 2006, Basshunter re-released The Bassmachine as The Bass Machine and also released his first compilation album The Old Shit through his own website.[12] Basshunter's interest in music deepened as time went by.[13] He recorded a YouTube video, entitled Basshunter Tutorial, showing his recording process in Fruity Loops. The track from the video was covered over 200 times.[14]

Basshunter published his music mainly through the Internet for free download on platforms such as chat channels and gaming websites.[15] He was registered on online communities like Efterfest, LunarStorm,[14] Nattstad, Porrigt, Playahead,[8] Skunk and Trance.nu.[8] For several years he was a DJ in Swedish clubs.[16]

2006–2008: LOL[edit]

In March 2006, Basshunter published his song "Boten Anna" online[17] and within twenty-four hours, it had been downloaded 37,000 times.[15] Basshunter's single "Welcome to Rainbow" was released on 1 April 2006; it included the track "Boten Anna".[18] With this success, Basshunter received several proposals from managers and music labels.[7] Swedish DJ and party organizer Joakim Jarny contacted Basshunter via Internet Relay Chat and Jarny was soon overwhelmed by hundreds of requests from club owners in Sweden, Norway and Denmark who wanted Basshunter to perform at their clubs. Jarny contacted his friend Henrik Uhlmann at Extensive Music[8] and in April 2006, Basshunter signed with Extensive Music[13] and Warner Music Sweden.[16] On 9 May 2006, "Boten Anna" was officially released as a single.[19] By 8 June 2006, the song had been downloaded over one million times.[15] In that year, he moved to Malmö, where the headquarters of Extensive Music are located.[5]

"Boten Anna" peaked at number one on the Swedish singles chart[19] and reached number 13 on the Swedish Best of All Time list,[20] and was certified platinum.[21] It also reached number one on the Danish singles chart, staying there for 14 weeks,[22] and was certified triple platinum[23] for selling 61,000 copies.[24] It was also certified gold in Austria.[25] "Boten Anna" was covered twice by Dutch duo Gebroeders Ko, whose "Boten Anna" [nl; pl] bootleg[26] charted at number three in the Netherlands, right after Basshunter's version.[27] The next cover called "Sinterklaas boot (Boten Anna)" [pl] reached number two.[28] An official German-language version was released in 2007.[19]

Basshunter's second studio album LOL was released on 28 August 2006.[29] He worked on the album for three-and-a-half weeks, during which Ali Payami helped him with three songs.[5] Basshunter described it as a connection of vocal music with hard dance and hard trance music; Basshunter's use of vocals is a significant departure from his earlier works.[30] An American version of LOL was released on 1 January 2008, with the same Swedish songs as the original album but with lyrics and some titles translated into English. The new release also included new tracks, including "Now You're Gone", "Russia Privjet", "The Beat", "Jingle Bells", "Beer in the Bar" and "DotA (Club Mix)".[31] A special version of this album was released in 2008, and includes the German version of "Boten Anna" and three music videos.[32] LOL peaked at number five in Sweden,[33] number four on the Finnish chart[34] and number three on the Danish albums chart,[35] and was certified double platinum in Denmark.[36]

The second single from LOL, "Vi sitter i Ventrilo och spelar DotA", was released on 13 September of the same year.[37] The single peaked at number two in Finland,[38] number six in Sweden,[37] and number seven in Norway[39] and Denmark.[40] It was certified gold in Denmark.[23] His song "Hallå där" charted at number 51 on Swedish singles chart.[41] The album's third single, a remake of the Christmas song "Jingle Bells", was released on 13 November[42] and peaked at number nine in Norway,[43] and number 13 in Sweden.[44] The single also made it onto the Dutch[45] and United Kingdom charts.[46] The single "Vifta med händerna", which features the duo Patrik & Lillen, peaked on the Finnish charts at number seven[47] and on the Sweden charts at number 25.[48] On 5 November 2007, a new version of the "Vi sitter i Ventrilo och spelar DotA" was released under the title "DotA"; it charted on Germany's singles chart.[49] This is different from the 2008 version from Now You're Gone – The Album.[50]

Artistry[edit]

Musical style[edit]

Basshunter defines his music as eurodance.[122] He says it is cheerful, full of energy and very melodic, stating it does not sound like other types of music, and that producers and artists display their own identities in their works. He is passionate about basslines and uses them in his music.[123] Basshunter likes to create songs in minor scales.[14] He has at least five unknown pseudonyms under which he produces music in secret.[8] He always takes his laptop on concert tours so he can spontaneously record ideas and return to them when he is back in his main studio.[108] Basshunter composes music and writes lyrics himself, though sometimes his agent helps with the lyrics to find the right English words.[124] He likes to write lyrics that audiences can identify with.[125] In 2018 Basshunter said that the music industry changed in previous years and it is harder now more than ever to stand out from other artists because it is easier to produce music. He added that it is more important than ever to adapt and an artist has to create something that people haven't heard before and described it as a holy grail.[126] In 2020 Basshunter described himself as quite an emotional producer after a few years break from producing music.[127]

Basshunter influenced Avicii's music

As influences, he mentions listening to DJ Balloon [pl][128] and Rocco [de; pl], and bands Warp Brothers[16] and Snap!.[128] He also listened to many underground tracks that had never been released or are not widely known by the general public,[7] as well as German and Dutch techno music,[129] trance,[130] reggae, funk and blues music; particularly the music of Ray Charles.[30] He considers Ali Payami as one of the best music producers, songwriters and DJ's.[131] The first music release he bought is a single "The Way" by Fastball in the 1990s.[132] He is fan of Robbie Williams.[133] Basshunter's work has influenced Avicii,[120] Bladee,[134] DCPA[135] Earmake[136] and Thaiboy Digital.[137] CMAT,[138] Johan Gunterberg from De Vet Du,[139] Nordpolen [af; fr; sv],[140] Sanna Martinez-Matz [sv],[141] Surf Mesa[142] and Linda Thelenius like Basshunter's music.[143] Stefán Finnbogason from Sykur[144] and Throttle [de; es] listen to Basshunter's music.[145]

The first computer Basshunter used was the Atari ST.[146] After achieving commercial success, he bought software to produce his music.[53] Around 95% of his music is created with software,[128] including digital audio workstations such as FL Studio, Logic Pro,[3] Logic Studio,[147] Pro Tools, Cubase,[148] and Virtual Studio Technology plugins.[53] He also plays guitar.[30] He said stores buy an album for about 100 Swedish krona, of which he gets paid 12-13 percent. He said people think he listens to techno in his headphones all the time but he rarely listen to the music he produces, which gives him a wider perspective.[8]

Basshunter considers his fan base to be very important for his career[16] and knows many of his non-Scandinavian fans actually prefer his songs to be in Swedish.[128] Writing in English may be an advantage for reaching international audiences[123] but he has also said he likes the challenge of writing songs in English.[53]
