DJ SEINFELD BIOGRAPHYArmand Jakobsson is the artist known as DJ Seinfeld, Rimbaudian and Birdsof Sweden. Under these aliases you’ll find sweeping emotive cuts, verdantdancefloor workouts and discerning dips into jungle and breaks. Releaseshave come on respected labels including Meda Fury, Ectotherm, UN.T.O andLobster Fury: the collaborative label from Lobster Theremin and Meda Furybegun for the explicit purpose of releasing his tracks.DJ Seinfeld’s beats are ultimately guided by an idea of authenticity, true to thespirit of the early house pioneers and the unabashed rawness the confines oftheir equipment demanded. A lot’s been made of this lo-fi fuzz, with manyclamoring to declare it a scene, but he won’t be put into a box. His path is hisown. A microphone picks up the tension and release of a singer: charged withemotion, the machine can’t handle it. The rough edges of his productions emitthe same sensibility.Footage of his gigs or their post-show reaction exemplifies the reception hegets as a DJ. Biographies often claim a DJ regularly ‘sends crowds intorapture’ or ‘lays waste to the floor,’ but in DJ Seinfeld’s case pandemonium isthe default. Mixes show his deft control of build-up and feel in the booth, whilehis mini series for legendary London station Rinse FM in May ‘DJ Seinfeldpresents…’, was a master class in the kind of wonky left-field house hepeppers his sets with.Armand began making music in Edinburgh at the suggestion of a respectedfriend. Time spent experimenting with sounds and exploring the possibilitiescontained within his laptop was cathartic relief from the grind of finishing hisstudies. Later returning to his hometown of Malmo, his interest in makingmusic would intensify thanks to encouragement from his old school friendsand the looming spectre of a 9-5 lifestyle. A move to Barcelona and the end ofa relationship resulted in extended sessions watching the classic Americansitcom and the music made to reflect that appeared under the name DJSeinfeld.Rimbaudian already had traction and DJ Seinfeld was really intended as aside-project to exorcise emotions felt at that time. At first, tracks appeared onmusic-sharing groups online but he didn’t claim ownership, despite thegrowing buzz. When his friend Courtesy’s label Ectotherm began asking whothe mysterious producer was, he began to take note. Then before long,Lobster Theremin and Media Fury followed suit.The point of no return though came one evening spent with Ableton and a fewbeers. The track ‘U’ was uploaded to Soundcloud, and the internet went intooverdrive. Sampling Bob Geldoff’s account of his split with his wife, amidsoaring chants and keys wrought in heartache, ‘U’ is almost voyeuristic in itshonesty. It’s that truth, that realness, that defines what Armand’s music isabout.
