About Dan Lissvik
Dan Lissvik is a Swedish musician, producer, and remixer best known for co-founding the Balearic dance duo Studio (along with Rasmus Hägg) as well as the Gothenburg-based Service record label. Both Studio and Service were launched in 2001 with a series of singles (credited to the Studio) that blended new wave-influenced indie rock with Afro-beat, dub, and Krautrock influences. In 2006, Studio released their debut full-length, West Coast, on the Information label. The album featured six extensive, heavily textured slow disco cuts that sometimes resembled New Order lounging at Ibiza. The disc was a huge critical success, appearing on many year-end best-of lists. The duo then remixed songs by artists ranging from Kylie Minogue to A Mountain of One, and these mixes were collected as Yearbook 2 in 2008 (Yearbook 1 contained all of the songs from West Coast as well as the non-album single "No Comply").
Studio released no further material, eventually announcing their breakup in 2011, but Lissvik remained prolific as a producer and remixer, in addition to his own projects. He released an instrumental solo album titled 7 Trx + Intermission (credited to D. Lissvik) in 2008. The Crêpes, his pop duo with Fredrik Lindson of the Embassy, released an album titled What Else? in 2009. Lissvik produced albums and singles by Swedish pop and indie dance artists such as the Embassy, Lake Heartbeat, and Taken by Trees, as well as Canadian group Young Galaxy. He also remixed singles by Fever Ray, Korallreven, La Roux, HAIM, Sally Shapiro, and several others. In 2014, Lissvik released an experimental downtempo album titled Meditation under the name Atelje on the Vinyl Export label. In 2015, Lissvik released an uptempo neo-disco single titled "Shuvit!" on the Smalltown Supersound label. The following year, he made his full-length debut for the label with Midnight. ~ Paul Simpson
