Daniel Ögren is one of the most unique artists in Sweden. He lives in the shadow of his music and while he's still mostly unknown by the great masses, he has started to gather a strong alliance of followers and fans. 'Fastingen 92' is produced, recorded and mixed by Ögren himself. The music is composed by Ögren and recorded layer by layer, mostly played by Ögren on various instruments. But some amazing guest contributions include Anna Ahnlund's vocals on the track 'Idag' (the only vocal track on the album) and Josefin Runsteen's drumming.
On 'Fastingen 92' (a place and year in Sweden which had the most importance to Ögren) Ögren mostly draws inspiration from the geographic environment that is his home, but he has also been inspired by other places that have made a great impact on him ('Annalena' is his mother's name). All titles have a meaning, but the music has to speak for itself, as we wrote before: Ögren likes to live in the shadow of his music.
This special and characteristic music has its roots in South American folk music, soul, nordic folk music, and film soundtracks, but when you listen to Ögren's music it's very hard to define it. It seems familiar, ancient and alien at the same time. With cinematic gestures he manages to create a completely new universe full of strange and fascinating life.
