Sampling only goes so far when it comes to actually playing music and building phrases. The Nord Drum 2 is an incredibly sensitive instrument that can react however you want it to! Being able to create sounds I hear in my head on the spot during rehearsals or in the studio has been golden to me, thank you!

One of the factory preset programmers for the Nord Drum 2, though mainly a percussionist and arranger. Originally from Strängnäs, Sweden, Axel is a young gun trying to make a name for himself on the swedish music scene.

Starting his percussion studies at age 8, he ventured into marching percussion, orchestral percussion, jazz vibraphone, cuban percussion, sampling and synthesis to create a diverse and creative toolbox. As the multi-percussionist and youngest member of professional big band Ambassadeur, he gets to perform at big events like the Nobel Banquet and with artists like swedish sweetheart Måns Zelmerlöw.
