Leo Josefsson – founder Kiss the needle

Hello music lovers!

I’m a Grammy Awarded producer based in Stockholm, Sweden. I specialize in producing, mixing and mastering electronic pop, dark pop, edm and indie music. My passion for analogue and vintage synths combined with my rack of analogue outboard has become a part of my trademark.

Leo is a luminary of the Stockholm electronic scene with the bands Unify Separate, Lowe and Statemachine, whose work has been recognised with several Scandinavian Alternative Music Awards, including Best Newcomer, Best Live Act, Best Song and Best Album. 

In his early career (2001-2007) he teamed up with Pat Reiniz and worked with Rednex (i.e soundtrack for Barnyard/Paramount Pictures), Band Ohne Namen, Shebang, Daze and Yaki-Da. Leo was teamed up with Oscar Holter (The Weeknd, Coldplay, Pink, Katy Perry) at Capitol Records/Universal to develop acts like The Pusher, Alex Saidac, Robin Stjernberg. He produced and wrote the underground hit “In My Head” by Tilly & Elliphant (2013).

For inquiries or more information, don’t hesitate to contact me.
I’m looking forward to get my hands on your music!
