Music is your ESCAPE.
Klas Sasse Lindblad have been living, breathing and creating electronic music since the early 90s. 25 years of experience behind the decks and in the studio has brought him to all over the world.A dj from day one, Sasse has as well always been writing and producing music under various pseudonyms and with different artist as a collaborator. Be it then the fresh collab as Hot Lunch with studio partner Ewan Pearson, the electro-tinged Mr Negative project with Holmar Filipsson from Thugfucker fame, him collaborating with Henrik Schwarz on Sunday Music - or any of the numerous productions and remixes for labels such as Pokerflat, My Favorite Robot, Bedrock, Dirt Crew or Pooled Music - the success has brought him all over the world to represent his driving, yet deep dj- style, and the sounds of his Moodmusic label.And rightly so, the label going from strength to strength, riding high in the dj-charts as well as being supported by the majority of the A-class disc jockeys around, Moodmusic is pushing new talent as well as keeping floors bysy with well known names like Mario Basanov, Betoko and Frankie & Sandrino.Soon to be 19 years going, the label nor the man behind it shows no signs of stopping now.With Ewan Pearson he runs Machinists, a label dedicated to the more obscure techno and electronics, as well as Misericord, a more disco orientated love affair.At his Berlin based Blackhead Studios Sasse is producing and mixing talent from all over the world, taking the production level to new heights with his all analog approach. Some of the recent artists include The Presets (Modular), Camea (Bpitch Control), Peter Pardeike (Innervisions) and Dauwd (Kompakt).In 2015 Sasse and Moodmusic will go into overdrive mode with touring in Europe, Asia, Australia and South America.
Oded's affair with the night life started at the age of 16, when he somehow got through the tight selection of the legendary Allenby 58 in Tel Aviv. What he heard, saw and felt that night is something that DJ biography's all around are filled with. 'Caught the bug, head blew off, saw the light, met his calling, fell in love' and all that.
With his move to Finland, Odeds mom bought him a pair of turntables, because he pretty much always got what he really wanted. Full of energy and innocence, Oded secured some gigs and started to build a name for himself. Events got more exciting, crowds got bigger, parties got longer and the all day breakfast more appealing than ever before.
The biggest chapter in Oded's life in club-land happened when he was 19. After many trips to a then booming underground Amsterdam scene, Oded got the idea of starting up Finland's first professional DJ Booking agency. Together with his big brother Asaf, they started Misc Management in 1999. What was meant to be an office concentrating in promoting and booking Finnish artists abroad, quickly evolved into one of the most active importers of international DJ's into Finland and its surrounding Scandinavian and Baltic countries. David Morales, Tiësto, Pete Tong, Eric Prydz, Sister Bliss, Mr C, 808 State, José Padilla, Derrick Carter, Nick Warren and over 100´s others all establish great connection with Misc based on their professional attitude to the business and hospitality as warm as a Finnish sauna.
Aside for the fact that working with egomaniac DJ agents was killing the brothers’ passion for the scene they loved dearly, it was also obvious that there was so much more within their reach. For 16 years and counting, they have been writing for magazines, producing TV and radio shows, running a DJ school, tour managing internationally, producing events for corporate companies and promoting some of the most visible and respected club events in their country. What I'm trying to get at, is that Oded's understanding of what makes a memorable night is built out of so many different aspects, that even a hardened Ibiza hedonist couldn't get to the bottom of.
Oded's time in the studio has resulted in a couple of vinyl releases, appearances on compilations such as Underwater Records and in the record cases of some of his personal heroes such as Josh Wink, Derrick May, Joe Clausell, Laurent Garnier and Orlando Voorn. Oded has always enjoyed mixing up different styles of unexplainably genred music. He feels best playing what could be called 'Hightec 21st Century Soul". Which is also a bit annoyingly genred.
Aside from his continuous gigs in Finland, Oded has DJ'ed in 20 different countries. From warming up Underworld on their Baltic tour, to legendary clubs such as Ministry of Sound in London, to a teenage packed ice hockey stadium in Murmansk, to a sweaty gay club in Singapore and never forgetting his sunset gigs in magical Bali. Oded always aims to give his crowd something they are looking for, but more than that, give them that feeling like it's the first time, every-time.
