Zyron aka Johan Åstrand is a DJ, producer and crate digging record collector living in Karlsborg, Sweden.
He started DJ'ing in 1988, doing small local school dances and the likes. Around 1990 he and a friend became more or less regular DJs at an outdoor venue where live acts like Lili & Sussie, Svullo, Snowstorm and Ankie Bagger would perform.
Sometime in 1992 he felt he had become too commercial and mainstream and started questioning what he was doing. He was fed up with buying and playing all the crappy euro-house and chart music people expected to hear and decided to take a break.
During the following years he focused mainly on his involvement in the Commodore 64 demo scene, making music, and writing and producing for his two projects 0x51d pL4n374ry (or Oxsid Planetary) and Someone's Imagination.
It would take until 2004 before he returned to the decks, this time with the focus set on playing music he actually enjoyed. Around the same time he started doing live streams on the web radio Interstate FM.
Eclectic in his selections he sometimes refers to his sets as "Spaced-out cosmic post-punk balearic kraut funk italo disco-not-disco deep dubby electro house wave".
