Boeoes Kaelstigen is a techno group consisting of Leo Nathorst-Böös and Tor Rauden Källstigen. Well known for their minimalistic techno with influences from trance. Besides Boeoes Kaelstigen's own releases, they've done several remixes for artists such as Familjen, Tove Styrke, Seinabo Sey, Duvchi, Jonathan Johansson, Firefox AK and Andreas Tilliander.

Tor and Leo first met in rhetoric class and quickly discovered their similar taste in music, their love for Giorgio Moroder, futuristic trains and machines that goes beep.

When the two, by coincidence, moved in to the same apartment complex sweet noises emerged, echoing over the hills of Ersta. The project soon came to be known as Boeoes Kaelstigen.

Boeoes Kaelstigen is nowadays a well established techno/house duo with several successful EP’s and indie-to-mainstream remixes behind them. Their work is endorsed by international techno personas such as Laurent Garnier, Michael Mayer of Kompakt and Özgur Can. The strong support, popular remixes and their own melodramatic melodies have taken them to gigs all over the world, including Tokyo, Berlin, the Internet and Paris.

The year is 2038, when the infamous Unix Millennium Bug is supposed to have wiped out all contemporary infrastructure. The Nordic region is trying to pull itself together, and the old satellite telecommunications station in western Sweden becomes the headquarters. Tanum Teleport is a combination of the past’s old torn down structures, colored with the hope of a joint pan European future.

Boeoes Kaelstigen’s previous two works has been purely instrumental journeys, but when working on a remix for moody Swedish star Jonathan Johansson they discovered what a human voice can do in a waste land.

On their debut album they have invited both Stefan Storm of international stars The Sound of Arrows and Malmö noise MF/MB/.Boeoes Kaelstigen is now back in the studio, painting a new picture of the future. This time the starting point is where humanity’s exploration of space meets the Swedish identity.

The space theme becomes a canvas to explore what happens when we meet the unknown. A story about letting go, and not the least, about trying.
