About Joni Ljungqvist –

Joni Ljungqvist (JPL) is a Swedish music producer, DJ and owner of JPL Music who creates lush, atmospheric and melodic music in a variety of genres. 
 Joni has a traceable music record history dating back to 2002, when he first started releasing music online, having his first official release together with Terje Bakke called Fanatic (2004), outstanding for its good reviews on Armada sublabel Electronic Elements and championed by Markus Schulz. 

In 2005 he released music on the classic dance music label Bonzai Progressive and had his first appearance on Tiësto‘s In Search Of Sunrise 4 – Latin America with People I Used To Know coming out on Gesture Music; a year later, Green Astronauts, a somewhat left-field trance record came out on Tiësto’s own record label and was also featured on his mix compilation In Search Of Sunrise 5 – Los Angeles. He followed this up in 2009 when Whenever I May Find Her was featured on In Search Of Sunrise 7 – Asia. 

Producing and DJing mainly dance music in the following years, Joni has been active under a wide variety of artist names such as A Boy Called Joni, LNQ, JPL, Ljungqvist and more releasing music on Blackhole Recordings, Bonzai Progressive, Anjunadeep and others. Joni now produces music and audio in more fields on his own JPL Music.

“My work is about trying to sonically describe my own emotions, thoughts, and feelings that I experience in the different situations that I am in, such as the things that I see and the moments I live through. Sometimes the music is somber and cold and very digital in nature; other times it is hopeful and warm and more human in nature – but one does not exclude the other. My music is really an observation of both the external and the internal in my life.I learned to use computers, musical instruments, and other devices to translate these ideas I had in my head into actual music and sound. The use of different methods and techniques for this purpose depends often on impulse and what tools I have at hand. Most often it is a computer, but other times it is a field recording or an instrument. Just like my music, the technique to make it is often contextual as well.

I find what inspires me the most are usually small moments in everyday life; times you share with a loved one, a landscape on your commute or a glimpse of the night sky on a dark day.”
