For his upcoming performance at Social Festival – Sailor & I provides an exclusive podcast of sorts to showcase his eclectic style across the electronica spectrum.
Based in Stockholm, Alexander Sjodin aka Sailor & I has moved full speed ahead ever since his breakthrough single “Tough Love”. Three years since the low-key SoundCloud leak, Sjodin landed a spot on labels such as Life and Death and Black Butter Records. He’s a producer originating from a hefty background of jazz, rock, classical, and punk – picking up most of his skill via his family’s piano or picking up a guitar. In terms of performances, you can catch him playing anywhere from Ibiza to Kent County, London – where he will be taking part in the Social Festival this year.
Sailor & I will be performing on the Stables stage, playing alongside acts such as Bicep, George Fitzgerald, Gerd Janson, Mind Against, and more. Other artists featured at the festival are names as big as Laurent Garnier, Ellen Allien, Carl Cox, Solomun, Pan-Pot, Joseph Capriati, Loco Dice, Eats Everything, and many more. In addition to the carefully curated line-up, an acute emphasis will be placed on the local community, with locally sourced food on site and the involvement of local universities and companies. The site is designed to create an intimate boutique feel and there will be funfair rides and market stalls for customers to enjoy.
