Voide (Dave Almgren) is a Swedish electronic music composer/producer with experience going back to the late 80s. He began experimenting with synthesizers in his teens. After being part of various electronic music projects and several bands during the 90s and 00s (SQN, Repulse, SoundMachine, Dr. Mad, ULDA), he started releasing as Voide in 2006. Voide is Dave's own unique style, influenced by electronic music pioneers like Jean Michel-Jarre and Kraftwerk. Retro instruments such as vocoders and analogue synths are woven with sounds and technology of today and the music flows naturally between vocal and instrumental tracks. Thoughtful soundscaping and excellent production round out a mix of elements that moves smoothly over a spectrum from dance pop vibes to soulful ambience. Guest artists include German vocalist Suzie Electric, who featured on the single 'Love' in 2009. Australian vocalist Pixieguts features on four of his newest tracks. In 2009 Voide's earlier duo, ULDA (with U. Johansson), was reformed as 'Little Red Cottage' (LRC). A new single 'I Go Easy', featuring Pixieguts vocals, was also released at this time. In a further collaboration with Pixieguts, Voide hosts and produces the Pixicast electronic music podcast. Voide's music has been licensed for commercial use by companies such as Hearst Corporation, G2, Innocean and Moonstruck Productions. He is actively composing and producing music in his home studio in the northern area of Stockholm.
