Carli is an immensely talented, constantly genre defying and very charming dj/producer from Sweden. We've gotten to know him as one half of Staygold, Savage Skulls and Marcus Price & Carli. We’ve seen him occupy dj booths in Miami, London and Stockholm. We’ve heard him produce everything from filthy grime to saccharine disco. We’ve had the pleasure of tagging along on a musical journey that has swayed back and forth between dodgy warehouses in Västberga and glittery super clubs on Ibiza; from aggressive beats for the street to dreamy pop productions for la-la-land. Carli comes equipped with an effortless eclecticism that only the most talented can pull off, matched with a tempo that demands unconditional love for music combined with less than zero interest in nostalgia.
As you might be able to tell, it’s impossible to speak about this guy in a sensible way. Were we to begin listing his many collaborations, we’d soon end up in a namedropping session which would have Victor Ward, main character of Bret Easton Ellis’ Glamorama, losing his breath. We’ll just mention a few projects that have occupied Carli Löf’s life over the last year: A string of irresistible singles with Marcus Price, a couple of brilliant productions on Rebecca & Fiona’s debut album and then a few international club smashers together with Crookers as Dr. Gonzo. Alright, we should probably mention that he's also the guy behind some of Robyn’s fiercest beats of late.
We could also tell a more or less classic story in which hip hop and rave culture collide right in the middle of a young Swedish electric boogaloo whiz kid’s cerebral cortex - but we’d rather stay in modern times for now. Here we find a dance music genius who turns everything he touches into pure club gold. Please note how Carli will use the cheesiest, most bombastic sounds of modern pop music and turn them into strange, crooked underground funk. Next time he’s in a studio or a dj booth, he’ll make the most obscure dance rarities sound like they were made for the Billboard charts. And in the midst of it all, we’ll find Carli Löf in full control.
