Mixtape Monday: Axel Boman

06.06.11 Posted in Blog by

I am a big big fan of eclectic mixtapes made by artists that I respect for their taste of music. It’s the reason why I started this Mixtape Monday series with the genius ‘Börneboll Mikks’ by Robag Wruhme. Because good eclectic mixtapes do not appear very often, I was happy to find Axel Boman’s mixtape last week. It’s titled ‘If you ever feel down, put this mix on!’ and does what it promises!

In comparison to earlier featured artists like the house-veterans Larry Heard and Rick Wade, Axel Boman is quite a newcomer to the scene. He has been an important player in the Swedish club scene for the last years and has been releasing music since 2008, but it was in the year 2010 that his international breakthrough took place. With the brilliant Holy Love EP released on Pampa Records, Boman managed to permanently establish his name.

As said in the introduction, I’m a big fan of eclectic mixtapes that introduce you to new music and new genres. That being said, the witty and optimistic mixtape below is such an exceptional mix. With music included from Matthew Dear, J Dilla and Bullion I’m sure this mix will accompany me in the coming months when working, enjoying the sun or traveling, just as the mixtape of Robag Wruhme did last year.

The mix is titled ‘If You Ever Feel Down, Put This Mix On!’. To make sure the mix achieves this goal, Boman added a track by Michael Jackson without whom a good eclectic mix wouldn’t be complete. So go ahead, and cheer yourself up with Axel Boman!
