2016 -> 2017

2016 didn’t turn out how I wanted it to be so I took a time out to focus on my kids, my health and people that I care about. Now it’s 2017 and we’re back on square one and I’m back in the studio finishing the album and some remixes. Thanks for the support.

I’ve got a lot for questions about my Kent remix of VinterNoll2 since the band has called it quits. You can download an mp3 or wav together with a cover here: http://moist.se/vinternoll2/

HAPPY NEW YEAR

MOIST BLENDS WITH KRISTOFFER ELMQVIST

Out now on digital stores and streaming services, Kristoffer Elmqvist’s remix EP of prominent singles from Moist’s album Temporary Arrangements, long with the single Worlds Collide, is the result of an interesting co-operative venture through Blend.io.

Both Moist and Kristoffer Elmqvist were finalists in the recent Blend hosted remix competition of the Erasure single “Sacred”. “I’ve been a Blend-member for well over a year now”, says Moist (also known as David Elfström Lilja) and continues, “but the Erasure remix competition is what really got me hooked. Seing the projects that came out of that competition i’ll defenitelly look for potential Blend-remixers on future I/O Music releases.

I/O Music is an independent record label from Sweden founded by David in 2010 in his quest to give great electronic music a platform to be heard and to give people the opportunity to hear it.
“Our focus is on releasing electronic music spanning from ambient to techno, from experimental to downbeat among many other electronic genres”.

Kristoffer Elmqvist found Moist through the Sacred-competition and decided to just go for it.
“I was suprised of how well written the selected tracks were. Inspiration came natural and, even though alot of work has gone in to these remixes, I was pretty clear on how they were going to sound when I began reconstructing them. “Far Beyond The Endless” is my personal favourite. I’ve been imagining making a track like that for a long time, but just haven’t been able to, quite frankly.

They both agree on Blend being a very practical platform to collaborate on.
“I think Blend is a great place to create creative connections and it’s also an awesome place for beginners to get feedback and find great projects to play or to work with”, David says. The remix competitions are of course another big PLUS!

IMAGINE – RE-IMAGINED

Made this for fun. Hope you enjoy.

NEW SINGLE AND ALBUM 2015

Been working on a bunch of new song together with Maria Marcus who will sing on all tracks on the new album. Stuff is moving fast and probably a single will be out before summer and the album autumn or early winter. Keeping my fingers crossed!

ROMANTIKEN (MOIST REMIX)

I made a remix as a birthday present for Tomas Andersson Wij of his duet with Ane Brun called Romantiken. You can listen to it and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed remixing it.

2015 IS ALMOST HERE

So a very sad and black 2014 is soon over and I hope that 2015 will be a lot better. I lost my sister 2014 and 2015 I will honor her with a song and hopefully a new album. So see you on the other side of new year with new energy and new stuff in the pipeline.

Also, I actually entered a remix compo and remixed Erasure’s Sacred using only sounds from my dear Commodore C=64. Some call it a “chiptune” other call it madness. Here it is, wish me luck.

ERASURE – SACRED (MOIST’S 8 BIT CHIP REMIX)

MOMENTUM

Things has started moving in the right direction again with the second album. Working on new tracks with Maria Marcus and also talking with some other vocalists on collaborations for it. Sing myself? Mmm no I don’t think so…

RED SNAPPER REMIX

Here’s my remix for Red Snapper – Walking Man. Hope you enjoy it!

INSTRUMENTAL VERSION

Today I release my album Temporary Arrangements but in an instrumental verison called Temporary Instrumentals. I got the idea from Imogen Heap that has released her album as instrumentals and when I listen to them I wondered if my songs could stand on it’s own without the vocals and I hope you think they does…

HOLD ON – DEMO VERSION

Was messing around on my hard drives and online backup services and found many demos of released (and unreleased) songs but this version of Hold On with the amazing Sofie Norling made me happy… so simple… so clean… so ambient. Love it.
Might be posting more demos from the album Temporary Arrangements soon.

MOBY REMIX 100.000+ PLAYS

My remix of Almost Home by Moby feat. Damien Jurado just passed 100.000 plays on Soundcloud! This is so crazy and of course very fun. Not many comments left which is too bad but downloads and plays talk for themselves.
