Basshunter is a stage name for Swedish singer/songwriter Jonas Erik Altberg. He was born on December 22, 1984 and started pursuing career in music in 1999. He released an indie album called "The Old Shit" in the same year. Four years later, he came out with another self-released effort, this time entitled "The Bassmachine".
In April 2006, Basshunter was signed to Warner Music and released his first major-label debut single "Boten Anna". In Scandinavia, the song became an instant hit and was the first Swedish-language song to reach number one on the Dutch Top 40 Chart. Besides, this track also ruled at least two other singles chart in Europe. "Boten Anna" is included in Basshunter's third studio album "LOL" which was dropped in September 2006.
