Ever since childhood, electronic music has been unseperable from Jonatans life; from unwrapping the Technotronic-cd at the age of 7, finding trance in the adolescens and then moving on with exploring experimental electronica, IDM together with late 60's and 70's psychedelic and progressive rock; but when finding psychedelic trance 18 years ago he found a place to call home and was caught up in a straight up deep love affair.
Since 7 years back, Jonatan’s been part of the Uhrla Tribe and Forest Star-crew, organizing one of swedens most delicious psychedelic music experiences: This very one you are looking at.
Jonatan is a multicreational being, and he has regularly produced film, photo and texts for the swedish skateboardmagazines Giftorm and Transition before moving away from the urban inner and outer environment, and instead dived deeper in to connection with nature, Awareness and music.
During the same above period of time he’s also been co-creating as workshopleader at festivals like Spirits Of The Jungle, New Earth and Love Rising Festival, Inspirationsfestivalen, Tantrafestivalen at Ängsbacka, Samskapelsen, Stockholm Tantra Festival and of course Forest Star.
Pórvaldr is Jonatans dj-project, where he's carving out techy and groovy vibes from the slippery psychedelic buttercave. His dj-sets always comes with a psychedelic flavour, and has often a progressive, dark, deep and playfull smell; not seldom spiced up with intros remixed and/or produced by himself.
All shapes and forms that comes from Pórvaldr is inspired by the dark northern forests and it’s folklore, a fascination by body-mind consciusness and how electronic musical experiences effects the human energysystem.
