Biography

Harald Björk was born and raised in a suburb of Stockholm, surrounded by nature, although the basements of the houses told a different story, harbouring a wealth of budding producers and bands. He first began to make a production name for himself with early releases on Traum Schallplatten, Apparillo Music and Deep Focus, before taking the brave decision to go it alone by founding his own Kranglan Broadcast label in 2009. Last year saw the release of his debut album ‘Bigfield’ on his own imprint, a totally autonomous, self-driven endeavour that wears its heart on its sleeve.

Harald Björk’s music is a naive and emotional form of melodic minimal techno with a melancholic Scandinavian touch. His hardware-only live set hooks a host of machines up to the mixer in preparation for a journey through melancholic melodics, exploding breaks and motoric beats, with Harald as jockey at the helm. His parallel DJ career meanwhile was first embarked upon as a teenager, flirting with hip hop in the days before techno stardom beckoned, eventually evolving towards the modern variant of music-for-dancing-to that we see today.

From his Stockholm base, Harald continues to perform live and DJ sets across Europe in support of his ‘Bigfield’ album, and is currently putting together a remix package for release later this year. The latest offering from his Kranglan Broadcast label is a sterling collection of remixes of the Swedish sister-duo Piroth at the hands of Nathan Fake, Popnoname, Studio Barnhus, Clara Moto, and of course, Harald himself.
