This autumn sees the release of Axel Boman's highly anticipated debut album, 'Family Vacation' via Studio Barnhus. This is accompanied by the 7" single release of 'Fantastic Piano' and Dungeon Acid remix. An adventurous house music masterpiece, Axel Boman's music has been described as "raw and playful house music drenched in oceans of soul".
“I decided to go through the vast collection of ideas and sketches I had on my computer, as a final project before I set that machine on fire and let it all go up in flames. Kind of like what Lee "Scratch" Perry did with The Black Ark in Kingston in the 70's. A friend says the album sounds like “weird Jamaican space disco" so maybe it's a fitting reference” says Boman.
Axel Boman broke through in 2010 with his ‘Holy Love’ EP, released on DJ Koze's Pampa Records. The track ‘Purple Drank’ became an instant classic in underground house music circles – since then, Boman has toured extensively while releasing original productions and remixes on labels like DFA, Hypercolour, Kompakt, Permanent Vacation and Ovum, as well as on Studio Barnhus, the label he runs together with Kornél Kovács and Petter Nordkvist.
Boman graduated with a master's degree from Valand School of Fine Arts in 2010 and currently lives in the calm and peaceful Stockholm suburb Gröndal.
