After a plethora of adoring feedback relating to his debut single, ‘Shoot Me Down’, Johan Reinhold is back with a fantastic off-shoot Remix EP. Johan’s influences span the likes of Danger Mouse, Twin Shadow, Gayngs, Portishead, Daft Punk, Gorillaz and Wilco. If you’re a fan of perfectly produced electronic anthems, with a soulful twist and some incredible attention to detail, then Johan Reinhold will be a staple diet for your MP3 player. Hailing from Sweden, and after dabbling in the world of cinema, Johan has decided to take a different stance on his creative world and is now crafting incredible artistic masterpieces that blur all musical genre boundaries.
“I wanted to mix and play around with various styles like indie pop, French house, British rock and sprinkle that with some Swedish melancholy, taking me back to the sounds that really influenced my younger years.” – Says Johan Reinhold
The Grammy-nominated, indie-electro-pop singer/songwriter has worked with some of the finest producers the music industry has to offer, from Owsey (famed for working with Birdy on her fabulous ‘Skinny Love’ in 2011), and Astma & Rocwell who produced the original ‘Shoot Me Down’ single (Icona Pop, Beatrice Eli, Josh Kumra, and Sunday Girl). Johan has worked with another one of Sweden’s greatest producers, Mr. Lasse Mortén (Lykke Li, Peter Bjorn & John, Primal Scream) who laid the final touches on ‘Shoot Me Down’ with post-production and the final mix.
“It’s been said my new song sounds a lot like Miike Snow with some Broken Bells, M83 and Lykke Li thrown in there – but I urge you to take a listen and come to your own conclusion.” – Says Johan Reinhold
Johan Renhold’s brand new ‘Shoot Me Down’ Remix EP will be available from January 20th 2012 as a free download. Full tracklistings, artwork and more info will be available shortly.
