Daniel Savio has grown a reputation as one of the finest electronic beatmakers to come out of the Nordic countries. Widely regarded as the inventor of skweee (as in “squeezing” as much as possible from lo-fi instruments), Daniel's songs come to us as retrospectives from the future. All rooted in hardware, and rarely in need of a screen resolution larger than a handful of LEDs, Daniel’s music owes its existence as much to the birth of technology, as it is pondering what has become of it.
Arguably the only artist around to be able to produce a lead single using just one synth for every part of the track (listen closely to 2012's "Revolt"), his four solo albums might best be summed up as doing something out of nothing, man's triumph over machine. Or as John Coltrane said: ”You can play a shoestring if you’re sincere”.
In addition to being one of electronic music's most talented synth ascetics, Daniel Savio's DJ sets under the moniker Kool DJ Dust continue to inspire. Showcasing unheard of private pressings from long forgotten synth demo bands, Daniel’s DJing has been featured on the world famous Beats In Space radio show, as well as on the now legendary mix CD “Disco Opera”, and on a slew of white label disco edits. All of which has firmly cemented him as one of the top record dogs in Scandinavia - a talent equalled only by his pioneering work as an electronic music artist.
