Artist Photo

Johannes was born in the late 70s in northern Sweden. While other kids stayed inside playing videogames, he spent his youth singing and eating things he found on the ground. Once in a while, his father would bring his Toshiba laptop home from work, on which Johannes experienced his first and most successful attempts to write Basic programs. Besides that and a few NES rentals, Johannes never had an opportunity to escape reality, and could do nothing but jealously listen to his friends bragging about their latest conquests in the 8-bit world. Today, Johannes has been making music under the name RUGAR since 1998, always with one thing in mind: to create soundtracks for the games he never got to play - music not requiring special fast-shooting skills or superior self control to experience - music about you, me and everything that surrounds us.

Latin NES pop like mixtures ... Maybe you'll imagine some Nintendo heroes are in such worlds.
