Joachim Prügl aka. Swede:art wurde vor allem durch seine Beats bekannt. 2010 nahm er an der Red Bull Music Academy in London teil und veröffentlichte noch im selben Jahr sein Debütalbum Emotional Colors auf dem Label Tokyo Dawn. Seine Production Skills wurden bei diversen Remixes eingesetzt, zum Beispiel Liedern von Jamie Collum, Roots Manuva, Kidkanevil, Bomb The Bass und anderen. Swede:art ist nach wie vor als DJ tätig und überschreitet dabei die Grenzen des Hip Hop hin zu Bass Music und Broken Beats.

Joachim Prügl may go by the name of Swede:art, but he actually hails from Bavaria, where he grew up with dreams of becoming an MC, but eventually set that aside in favor of making beats. In 2010, he was a participant at the Red Bull Music Academy in London, and that same year, he released his debut album, Emotional Colors, on the Tokyo Dawn label. Featuring the talents of Blaktroniks, Pursuit Grooves and Comfort Fit, amongst others, the LP was a compelling exercise in pixelated synths and wonky boom bap. Since then, his production skills have been put to use on a variety of remixes, including reworks of Jamie Cullum and Roots Manuva, Kidkanevil, Bomb The Bass and others. In 2012, he issued a split 7” with Austrian producer Feux, and he remains a regular presence on the DJ circuit, where he pushes beyond hip hop into a myriad of bass music and broken beats.
