The esteemed electro/dance project Emmon saw the light of day in 2001. With her explosive one-woman shows and engaging DJ-gigs, Emmon (aka Emma Nylén) quickly took her place front and centre of the electroclash genre at alternative stages in Sweden, and entered the music industry by producing highly coveted remixes of famous Swedish acts such as The Knife, Melody Club & BWO. After several years of touring as part of the popular synthband Paris, her long-awaited and intensely hyped up solo album "The Art and The Evil" was released in 2007 on Wonderland Records. Since then, Emmon has been crowned Sweden's electro queen, released 4 full-leangth albums and completed numerous tours, club and festival performances.
Emma and her partner Jimmy Monell (The April Tears, producer of The Sounds debut album, Rein etc) paired up in 2010, producing Emmons latest albums together. Between 2014-2019, Emmon took a well-needed break to regain the drive and find the pleasure in creating music again. Her grand comeback, a gig with Nitzer Ebb at Slaktkyrkan in 2019, was received with great enthusiasm. Zero Magazine exclaimed; ”After 5 years of silence, Sweden's electroclash queen Emmon is back with new music”.
When the Covid pandemic suddenly struck EMMON had a tour all planned out and was one of the last to perform live in Stockholm in March 2020 just before the world closed down. However, the pandemic gave room to continue creating and recording new songs that have now taken the form of an 10-track-album named RECON, which will be released this autumn via Swedish boutique label Icons Creating Evil Art. Emmon tells us; ”The new songs have become harder and got a darker costume. Musically, I went back to my creative roots and to the sound of the 00's electroclash scene that Emmon was created and descends from. Mixed with progressive old school synth in a postmodern production that is primarily produced to be performed live.”
