The last handful of years have witnessed NIBC going from strength to strength as a producer, DJ, collaborator, remixer, promoter, and label head of Trunkfunk Records. His recent smash house hit with Life So Far, You Let Me Go, was snapped up by the institution Ministry of Sound, marking the latest in a long line of crossover successes that have raised NIBC's profile. At just a few months young, 2014 has also seen NIBC turning in a standout remix with Isaac Tichauer for Anjunadeep signee Lancelot. This followed the success of his electro disco collaboration with Patrick L, Call Me, in 2012 for his own Trunkfunk Records, and the release of his tongue-in-cheek solo breakout hit The Doorman. Add to that the acclaim and props from his peers - the solo EP Hold On which was licensed to Ministry of Sound, the NME video feature and playlist support from Dubfire, Damian Lazarus and Todd Edwards for Spiders Spins, the nods from Miike Snow for "Rymdstungen" in their BBC1 Essential Mix, and the inclusion of "A Million Secrets" in DJ T.'s edition of Fabric's mix series - and you have a steady trajectory to uppermost ranks of house music.

Near the beginning of his DJ career, within Gothenburg’s early 1990s hip-hop scene, NIBC was inspired to create Claustrophobic Dimension, a pioneering local network for underground music and digital art, spurred on by his growing interest in techno and rave. Within a few years NIBC had fallen for house, and began hosting the Breeze deep house radio show on K103 Gothenburg. By the turn of the decade NIBC was a regular DJ at many of Gothenburg’s clubs, including Bagheera, The Eye and award-winning nights RA & VS, leading to being voted the Best DJ of 2003 by Yo Media, and ranked #7 in Scandanavia's 100 Best DJ's Poll. NIBC remains closely connected to Gothenburg, as host and resident DJ of the Trunkfunk club night at Yaki-Da, and he has represented his roots around the world, DJing at festivals, radio stations and clubs in New York, Miami, London, Berlin, Paris, Rio De Janeiro, Ibiza, Barcelona, and Tokyo.

From its first cut in 2000, NIBC's Trunkfunk Records has evolved into one of Sweden’s most in-demand independent outlets, with releases from Stuffa, Hans Berg, Uniforms, Tyken and Trevor Loveys, and remixes from Ian Pooley, Axel Boman, Basic Soul Unit & DJ Assault. A consistent and insistent attention to design detail instilled in NIBC an appreciation for visual communication, which in turn become an integral part of Trunkfunk Records, and can be seen in the unique artwork which adorns each of the label’s releases. Showcasing both the underground sound of Gothenburg and NIBC’s supreme A&R skills, Trunkfunk has won DJ support from the likes of DJ Koze, Moodymann and Annie Mac.
