Basshunter Jonas Erik Altberg Basshunter at the concert in Poland Background information Birth name Jonas Erik Altberg Born December 22, 1984 (age 23) Halmstad, Sweden Genre(s) Eurodance, electro, club Occupation(s) Singer, producer Instrument(s) Singing, synthesizers Years active 1999--present Label(s) Warner Music Group Website Jonas Erik Altberg, better known by the pseudonym Basshunter (born December 22, 1984, in Halmstad, Sweden), is a Swedish musician and DJ. Basshunter describes his own music as Eurodance, while others may also interpret it as electro, club, and other electronic music genres. He has become famous for his songs "Boten Anna" (about an Internet Relay Chat bot) and "Vi sitter i Ventrilo och spelar DotA" (about Warcraft 3's Reign of Chaos/The Frozen Throne custom map "Defense of the Ancients"), in part owing to their references to geek culture. Biography Jonas Altberg aka, Basshunter, was born December 22, 1984 in Halmstad, Sweden. He lived with his parents and younger brother near Tylösand, a famous Swedish beach. He started to produce music in 1999 with the computer program Fruity Loops, and released his first album, The Bassmachine, through his own home page in 2004. His interest in music became greater as he progressed. After several demo songs spread over the Internet, he started to get phone calls from dance clubs that wanted to hire him as a DJ. In April 2006, he signed his first real contract with Warner Music. He released his first single, "Boten Anna", in Scandinavia and it became a hit instantly. Boten Anna was the first ever Swedish language song to make number 1 on the Dutch Top 40 Chart, and the English language version ("Now You're Gone") was number 1 on the UK Singles Chart in 2008. When Basshunter reached 50,000 friends on MySpace he celebrated by releasing "Beer in the Bar - Myspace edit" and chatting via webcam with his MySpace friends through MSN Messenger. Afterwards he mentioned his computer had crashed due to the high number of people he was chatting with. As of 2007, Basshunter has been working on his new album. He released "Camilla" so far. Altberg has been diagnosed with Tourette syndrome--a condition he spent a lot of energy dealing with while growing up and has only gradually overcome.
