Help me find this Swedish trance musician.

Trying to remember a trance artist from back in the days.

I remember this guy from Sweden posting some pretty popular trance music to It might have been "christian" trance, whatever that means. Or maybe his name had "christian" in it somewhere. I remember his name being pretty Swedish-sounding.

But the music was really enjoyable to listen to.

And...that's all I remember. Thanks!

Christian Röhss?

Whoa, that's a Swedish trance artist named Christian!!! But it's not the guy I'm thinking of. Arg. :-( Are the old melodic trance charts still online somewhere? I found a single-pager but that's all...

Thanks, iconomy.

Here's a wild guess: Christian Fennesz?
(not exactly trance, and not Swedish either)

Nope, not Fennesz. I'm thinking his last name was "Johansson" or something Swedish like that.

Probably not it, as there were a lot of trance acts on back in the day (and it doesn't fit the "Christian" thing you're remembering), but the first one that came to mind was Master Zap (aka Håkan Andersson).

Maybe it was Bassic? I worked for the bank that processed the artist payments for, and this dude was one of the main earners.

I have half a hunch I'm thinking of several different people. And those were all very helpful answers. Thank you.

Could it be Phero?
They were (are?) from Denmark, not Sweden, but I actually collaborated with them a few times back on a million years ago and while I'm not a big trance expert, one of the guys is named Johnsen.
Some more googled info.
Wow, I hadn't thought about them in a while.
