Joel Mull

Posted In Artists

Joel Mull is a rare breed amongst electronic Music producers. Classically trained on the piano from a young age, Joelʼs musical understanding goes beyond the traditional primal dance floor dynamics often associated with techno. As such Joel occupies a special place within the scene, respected for not just his forward-thinking musical output and long, winding sets of deep and melodic tones but also for being a hard-working professional who has spent his time well, progressively working his way up the techno ladder with a consistent, clearly defined musical style.

A product of the small but highly productive scene that has grown up in Stockholm, it comes as no surprise that Joelʼs discography is heavy on associations with other key players in the creation of the distinctive Swedish techno sound such as Adam Beyer, Jesper Dahlback and Cari Lekebusch. 2010 will see Joel appear on Dahlback newly launched International Sound Laboratory label, remixing Cari Lekebusch ʻCold Bloodʼ while there will be follow ups to his Forming Dies and Passing Through singles on Drumcode and Truesoul including the release of Joelʼs third artist album.

As a DJ, Joel brings the same qualities he has exhibited in his studio work to the live arena. Comfortably combining music from across a range, Joel is a dynamic and interactive DJ who blends rolling basslines, harmonic synths, and energetic percussions to craft an infectious and atmospheric sound. Most at home when building the marathon sets that allow him to explore the range of his musical inspiration, the Joel Mull sound has become a key part of the Drumcode events at which Joel enjoys a privileged residency and regularly plays back-to-back with Adam Beyer.
