Axel Boman, a graduate from the Red Bull Music Academy who took the world by storm. After having released his Holy Love EP including masterpieces such as Purple Drank EP on DJ Koze’s label Pampa the journey took off and he became one of the most sought after DJs in house music. Axel has toured the world, been on the cover of the biggest magazines in the industry, played in almost every important venue and been headlining festivals (not only because his name starts with an A).
He runs the highly esteemed label Studio Barnhus together with Kornel Kovacs and Petter Nordkvist which has released a multitude of bangers by Baba Stiltz, Usio and the three label owners themselves.
His popularity might have come from his impeccable feeling for house music, with a raw, playful sound drenched in oceans of soul, his impressive work ethics where he seamlessly weaves extensive touring together with a frequent release schedule or his happy-go lucky easy going approach which wins his audience over in seconds. Axel has created mind-blowing mixes for the most respected outlets such as Boiler Room, Dekmantel and is a regular at Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space show.
We are extremely happy to announce that Boman will be housing this year’s festival: Malmö’s love for Boman and Boman's love for music will make even the ones least prone to dancing stomp their feet!
