After releasing his first widely distributed solo album (Evolutions
) back in 2010, Hellkvist has gained worldwide recognition for his music in which he combines dense layers of heavily processed drones and synthesised textures with acoustic instruments and field recordings. His cinematic atmospheres has been referred to as dynamic, varied and “packed full of life”.
Over the years, Hellkvist has been taking part in various collaborations, compilations and remix projects, and has gained a strong following in Japan and parts of Europe and North America. He's performed live shows in Copenhagen, London and Los Angeles and his music has been used in commercial films, art installations and dance performances.
Born in a small town outside of Malmö in the Swedish south, Hellkvist now lives in Copenhagen where he’s working as a foley artist and sound designer, while also doing occasional production, mixing and mastering work for other artists and labels.
