ANDERS 'HANDS' NILSSON
PHD Candidate, researching environmental effects and industrial ecology by day. Re-creating the sounds of 90´s hip hop by night. When leaving work at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, PhD Candidate Anders Nilsson becomes “Hands”. Producer and scratch DJ, making the east coast rap scene of the 90's once again come to life with it's unique gritty sound. Refusing the developed technology of today, Hands still composes using the same equipment he always worked with as all of his heroes. Re-creating classics as well as unknown gems of an era far distanced from today's sound. Always with the proper respect for the originators of an almost lost art. This double edged sword slices through history, chopping up just the right bits and pieces.
Being a producer and DJ, the sound might be more important than the vocals. Maybe that’s why Hands list is swamped with instrumental songs. Or it just might be the inspiration for his upcoming album that is, you guessed it, an instrumental album.
