"The sadness of "Ghost" is encased in deliciously pretty melodies, cradling the song in a warm bed of piano, padded drums and synth textures." – The Guardian

Swedish electronic pop-outfit Johan Reinhold, (some say he's a mix between Depeche Mode, a young Phil Collins and Miike Snow) is back with a new voice after strangely enough – choosing to go silent in 2009.

A change of heart, from hip-hop to pop and from rapping to singing, would change everything and has now earned him critical acclaim by some of the biggest music related players around the world and features in Fader Magazine and Gorilla vs. Bear to name a few.


Once nominated for a Swedish Grammis (equivalent to the Grammys) for best hip-hop/ soul album of the year.

At his peak, Johan was invited to join the Swedish leg of the Rock the Bells tour sharing the stage with Nas, De La Soul and Mos Def. He got to open up for rappers like Game and Slum Village and recorded in the studio with legends like A.G from D.I.T.C., Canibus, Sean Price and Chino XL amongst others. Then suddenly, Reinhold gave it all up.


”I’d had enough of me… enough of music. I’d left that dream behind and hidden it in a place so dark I thought I’d never find it again. But I did...”

For the first time Johan Reinhold had found a way of connecting all his previous musical inspirations from Refused to Company Flow and infuse it with all the influences that had molded his love for music in the neon-days of the 1980’s.

Johan Reinhold is now readying his debut-album entitled Beautiful Loser.
