Stockholm native Per QX currently divides his time between his hometown, techno capital Berlin and his adopted home of over 10 years, London.
Having DJ’ed in over 30 different cities from Singapore to San Francisco, including guest sets at Pacha in London, Barcelona nightclub Razzmatazz, Tresor in Berlin, and at Roger Sanchez’s Release Yourself at Ministry Of Sound, Per’s style can adapt to suit any fun-loving party around the world.
He began writing dance music whilst still in Stockholm in early 2000, eventually releasing his first EP on Swedish producer StoneBridge’s label Stoneyboy, a label known then for releasing early tracks from Swedish House Mafia alumni Axwell. It was around this time he also became friends with Sebastian Ingrosso. Per was lined up to be the first release on Sebastians uncles label Joia Records, but moved to London instead.
Which turned out pretty good for London, as he co-founded the outrageous (and now international) dance party GutterSlut, with Ralf Obergfell and Nic Fisher. From its beginnings in an East End strip joint, to now being held semi-regularly in London, Berlin and Stockholm, the night is always a favourite for each city’s locals and even The Pet Shop Boys when they’re in town. It’s no surprise, considering the party has seen the likes of Felix Da Housecat, DJ Hell, Tiga and a whole host of local DJs grace their decks.
In addition to this, Per has released on celebrated labels like Size, Strictly Rhythm, Great Stuff, Stealth, Southern Fried Records and has seen his compositions used for a variety of projects for film and TV, which includes adverts Adidas, BBC Radio 1, Pioneer and BBC TV.
Still going strong in 2014, he’s been working closely with Zoo Brazil, and new single, Save Us, out on Steve Angello’s Size Records has already had worldwide exclusive play on BBC Radio 1, been played on Pete Tongs Essential Mix, went to no 3 in the UK Buzz Chart and has 200 000 plays on Sound Cloud alone.
Next up will be Hot Head with Elias Bravo out on Great Stuff, with a remix by Oliver Giamotto. Following that will be Give It Up on Noir Records again with Zoo Brazil, and finally Bongera with George Nakas on Trunk Funk records later this year.
