Johanna Knutsson caught the music bug in 2008, she promptly moved to Berlin from her native Sweden, buying her very own set of Technics and a xone42 mixer along the way. Finding her inspiration Berlin’s people, clubs and surroundings, it wasn’t long before Johanna was well and truly entrenched in the city’s vast and varied music scene. The move led to a job writing for Pulse Radio’s online magazine,interviewing artists such as Prosumer,Kasper Bjorke,Ripperton,Sasse, Session Victim and most recently La Fleur.
2010 saw Johanna sign to independent Berlin based label, Klasse Recordings. Her first release “Heavy baby” (featuring a Minilogue remix) was released in March 2011. A passion for 80s disco, house, hi hats and handclaps inspired 2 dance floor killing edits of Imagination’s “So Good So Right” (Johanna Knutsson So Easy Edit) and Sinnamon’s “Thanks to you (Johanna Knutsson Edit) ", both of which received great feedback from several fellow DJs and artists. Never one to drop the ball Johanna has remixed the award winning Swedish band This is Head’s track “De Trop” in October 2011. In April 2012 her second EP “Support EP” came out with remixes from both Esther Duijn and Sacha Robotti (listen here http://soundcloud.com/klasserecordings/sets/kls016-johanna-knutsson/)
