Basshunter biography

Swedish singer, songwriter, producer and disc jockey Jonas Erik Altberg was born on December 22nd, 1984 in Halmstad (Sweden). His dad Karl Göran Altberg worked in a construction company and his mum Gunhild Elisabet Altberg was a teacher and head of a secondary school. He has a younger brother called Joakim. They grew up near Tylösand beach. In 1998 he started singing in a choir run by his mother. Later he sang in a rock band. In 2001, after six months of learning Fruity Loops studio, he began producing music under the stage name Basshunter.

His first album The Bassmachine was released on 25 August 2004 under Alex Music. In 2006, he self-published on his webpage a digital album entitled The Old Shit.

Jonas published online his song Boten Anna in March 2006, and success was massive : the day after, it had been already downloaded 37,000 times ! In April, he signed with Extensive Music and Warner Music Sweden, and on May 9th, Boten Anna was officially released as a single, going #1 in Sweden and Denmark. His album, LOL was released on 28 August.

Follow-up single was Vi Sitter I Ventrilo Och Spelar DotA. Meaning "We Sit in Ventrilo and Play DotA" (Ventrilo is a VoIP software, and DotA is a multiplayer online battle video game), it was once again very successful. It went #2 in Finland, #6 in Sweden and #7 in Norway and Denmark. Melody was inspired from Daddy DJ.

Still in 2006, next single Hallå där was released. Then came Vifta med händerna, a collaboration with featured by Patrik & Lillen duo. Fifth single was a remake of classic Xmas theme Jingle Bells. He won Eurodanceweb Award for Boten Anna.

On November 5th 2007 Basshunter released a new version of the Vi sitter i Ventrilo och spelar DotA under shorter title DotA and it charted in Germany. In December, came Now You're Gone, a new version of Boten Anna with new lyrics in English. It topped UK Singles Chart and was also #1 in Ireland, #6 in France and #2 in Sweden

In 2007 too, he did remixes for ESC candidate Verka Serduchka's single Dancing Lasha Tumbai, for Alex C's Du hast den schönsten Arsch der Welt, for Loituma's Ieva's Polka (Ievan Polkka) and for Dr. Bombay's Calcutta 2008.

2008 : a new album was released on 1 January, with the same songs from the original LOL album, but with lyrics or just titles translated into English. Some new tracks were included : Now You're Gone, Russia Privjet, The Beat, Jingle Bells (Bass), Beer in the Bar and Club Mix of DotA. Next single Please Don't Go was a cover of KC and the Sunshine Band song from 1979. Then came All I Ever Wanted (again the Daddy DJ cover) on June 7th, Angel in the Night on 8 September and I Miss You on 14 December. He contributed to charity event Cash for Kids

2009 : on 5 April single Walk on Water was released. Every Morning was released on 18 September, a few days before brand new studio album Bass Generation. In November, single I Promised Myself (a cover of a Nick Kamen) hit the stores.

2010 : he competed in hit reality TV show Celebrity Big Brother in January. He also appeared in the British edition of Fort Boyard and the Weakest Link. He released single Saturday in July

2011 : the next Basshunter single was named Fest i hela huset and it was recorded it for the Big Brother Sweden series. It went #5 on the Swedish singles chart.

2012 : he released singles Northern Light and Dream on the Dancefloor (slightly inspired from Gigi d'Agostino's L'Amour Toujours). Then, album The Early Bedroom Sessions (a collection of his early tracks and demo songs) was released on 3 December.

2013 : Basshunter released his new album Calling Time. Then came the singles Crash & Burn in June and Calling Time in September. In November, single Elinor was out. Then he announced that he did a pause on his vocal career to focus on his DJing, production and songwriter career.
