Biography

The Swedish production and songwriting duo Bloodshy and Avant are in charge of some of the most innovative mainstream pop recordings from the 2000s, including tracks with Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Christina Milian and, especially, Britney Spears. Christian Lars Karlsson (a.k.a. Bloodshy), whose earlier credits included creation work with Vitamin C, 98º and Ultra Naté, 1st teamed with Pontus Winnberg (Avant) in 2001 to co-write and make the solitary “I’m THE FOLLOWING” for Samantha Mumba, the Irish vocalist who was simply once hailed as “the dark Britney Spears.” (The track was a high 5 U.K. strike, but its would-be mother or father recording, Mumba’s second, by no means materialized, even though monitor would later show up on her behalf compilation The Collection in 2006.) The duo added five songs towards the debut recording from the American R&B vocalist Christina Milian, leading to two sizable worldwide strikes: “WHENEVER YOU TAKE A LOOK AT Me” and the new, synth-tinged “AM to PM.” Pursuing work with British celebrities Sugababes and Ms. Dynamite (including a high ten solitary, “IT REQUIRES Even more,” for the second option), Bloodshy and Avant experienced a significant coup if they had been tapped to donate to Britney Spears’ 2003 recording In The Area. Specifically, they obtained using the stunningly initial “Harmful, which rode its insistent, otherworldly string connect towards the tops of graphs worldwide (despite just reaching #9 within the U.S.) when it had been released because the album’s second solitary as 2004. “Harmful”, which Karlsson and Winnberg co-wrote making use of their regular confederate &Henrik Jonback as well as the veteran songwriter Cathy Dennis, was broadly considered by critics and followers among the greatest songs of the entire year, and eventually gained an Ivor Novello honor (for songwriting and structure) along with a Grammy for Greatest Dance Documenting. (Their cooperation with Dennis also yielded the funky, guitar-driven “Nice Dreams My L.A. Ex lover,”that was declined for the Spears record but became a #2 U.K. strike for Rachel Stevens.) The tune “Chaotic,” originally posted for WITHIN THE Zone, was utilized instead because the theme music for the truth series Britney and Kevin: Chaotic; Spears also tapped the duo for creation responsibilities on three monitors for 2004’s Greatest Strikes: My Prerogative, like the U.K. top-ten “Perform Somethin'” as well as the strike titular Bobby Dark brown cover. The next year’s lower-profile tasks included record monitors for Madonna’s Confessions in the Dancefloor and Brooke Valentine’s overlooked String Notice, while 2006 was a straight quieter year, making use of their just notable output being truly a monitor for the worldwide model of Kelis’ Kelis Was Right here. In 2007, nevertheless, Bloodshy and Avant had been back in a significant way, acquiring their highly digital pop production design to bold fresh extremes that included trimming up, tweaking and refracting the vocals on the tracks, in some instances practically to the idea of obscuring the “business lead” vocalist, or at least to wrest the listener’s interest in multiple directions simultaneously. The prime types of this method are available, not surprisingly, on the four efforts to Britney Spears’ triumphant return recording Blackout, specially the solitary “Little bit of Me”; in addition they created two similarly-styled songs to Kylie Minogue’s much-anticipated tenth recording X (“Speakerphone” and “Nu-di-ty.”) Amongst their songs that have been initially designed for Blackout, many ended up showing up instead within the debut by American Idol champion Jordin Sparks, and something as the name monitor to Jennifer Lopez’s Courageous. Other tasks the duo had been involved in for this period included assisting to pencil a pastiche of modern pop for the film Music and Lyrics, dealing with R&B performers Kevin Michael and Sean Garrett, and generating for a toon hip-hop task with Hungarian animator Andras Erkel, the very first monitor that, “My Slang” by Spiss, made an appearance in early 2008. That same yr, Karlsson and Winnberg had been granted the Swedish Music Export Award by their federal government.
