Biography

Trollhättan, Sweden (1987 – present)

Swedish band DPoint was formed in 1987 in Trollhättan, Sweden by the original members Peter Andersson, Örjan Andersson and Robert Widell. Örjan was replaced by Anders Witrén in 1988 and when Anders left the group in 1989 it has since consisted of Peter Andersson and Robert Widell, often with guest musician appearing in different roles both on recordings and on stage.

The bands initial influences was from classic gods like Kraftwerk and New Order, and also without a doubt also Depeche Mode. Over time, Peter and Robert’s and influences coupled with a weird attraction to the late sixties and early seventies scene with the Velvet Underground and The Doors being introduced in the mix together with screaming guitars a lá Jesus And The Mary Chain which resulted in very odd live performances and a multitude of improvized recordings, few of which survive today.

After some time of inactivity in the mid 90’s, Peter and Robert has since then taken their music back to the dance floor, but has in large kept their influences, although additions like David Holmes and, of course, the early Chemical Brothers can be spotted.
