Petter B is a DJ and producer based in Gothenburg. He started out behind the decks back in 1996 at the age of 13. He was a part of the famous techno duo ‘Hertz’ for five years and relaunched his solo career in 2012. Our very own in-house DJ extraordinaire, Arjun Vagale chats with Petter about his musical journey, his go-to equipment and how to produce music that is relevant.
Petter has gained worldwide recognition and respect as a DJ and producer. He has released numerous tracks and remixes under different names and on different labels around Europe. Adam Beyer was the first to sign Petter B’s solo material to his well-known imprint Drumcode. In 2013 Petter started his own imprint Bond. Bond is the result of the way he DJ:s and thinks of music as a DJ.
The way Petter sees it, all music has a purpose and makes out building blocks in his DJ performance. The driving idea behind Bond is therefor to create those blocks rather than complete full-on productions. When using these blocks the perception of a track can be changed every time it is played depending on how they are combined. The unique bond that is created when tracks, loops and sounds are combined live is what fascinates Petter B as a DJ. Even though Bond is a young label, it has gained great support from many names in the techno scene.
