Gragee Pikanen is an electronic music producer and dj based in Stockholm, Sweden. Finding his inspiration and drive from science and technology, Gragee's sound would best be described as a deep, moody, crossover between techno and electro. Filled with synthetic and droney elements to create pulsating atmospherical soundscapes. Something that his own label Obsculex is displaying the best.
At the age if thirteen gragee's first involvement with music started while playing drums and spinning vinyl at the local youth centre, and it did'nt stop there. After elementary school he went to Rytmus Music Konservatorion for three years. Not only did he further his drum play and production skills, he also learned piano and Steinberg Cubase score. During this period his love for techno and electro deepened.
What started out as fun during his education, turned more serious when in 2003 Gragee became a member of the group NFLKRU - a Swedish collective of producers, MC's and DJ's, with members like Cari Lekebusch, Abi Bah, Kaliffa Karlsson, Hector Zamora. As a crew they produced a huge variety of different music styles from Techno, Electro and House to Grime and Hip-Hop. They also formed collaborations with other artists like Max Peezay. With whom they performed at various clubs and festivals across Sweden.
After 2007, Cari Lekebusch invited Gragee to produce an electro album on his label H-Productions, which resulted in the release of the highly acknowledged "Obsessed" (HPX07). Ever since that day Gragee has been working relentlessly on his music, wich has resulted in unique releases on H-Productions, Labrynth, Eastpoint Records and Duality, and some co productions with Cari (Braincell) on German label Harthouse.
2016 is the year Gragee is going to sail the 7 oceans with a ship of his own. It is with the start of his own label imprint OBSCULEX, that Gragee will be able to show off his unique style.
