Jonas Erik Altberg was born on 22 December 1984 in Halmstad, Sweden. He lived with his parents and younger brother near Tylösand. He suffers from Tourette syndrome and has been harried in school because of it, though has learned to control it now.
He started to produce music under the stage name “Basshunter” in 2002 with the computer program Fruity Loops, and released his first albums, The Old Shit (2002) and The Bassmachine (2004), through his own web site, and began working as a DJ. In April 2006, he signed with Warner Music, releasing his first single, “Boten Anna”. In Scandinavia, the song became a hit instantly and was the first ever Swedish language song to reach number one on the Dutch Top 40 Chart. In 2007, Altberg released a recording titled “Now You’re Gone”, featuring entirely rewritten lyrics to appeal to a foreign market. The song charted at number one on the UK Singles Chart and stayed there for 4 weeks.
Throughout 2007 Basshunter worked on a new album, Now You’re Gone: The Album, which was released in July 2008. Five singles were released from this album (Now You’re Gone, All I Ever Wanted, Angel in the Night, I Miss You, and Walk on Water). A special edition of the album was released called Now You’re Gone - The Album: Deluxe Edition on 5 April 2009. This featured all the content of the original album plus new remixes of I Miss You & Angel in the Night by Headhunter, along with a 7th Heaven remix of Walk On Water, and a megamix of the first four singles .He has recently brought out another single ‘I promised Myself’, which was released the 30th November 2009.
