    1About This [2001]
    2Baxter [1998]


    Baxter are, like so many good bands these days like Jay Jay Johanson or Krom, from Sweden. They are combining drum n' bass loops and Nina Ramsby's hypnotic strong - to melancholly softly voice to a new, addicting sound. In 1996, Ricky Tillblad, one of the Swedish recording industry's pre-eminent designers, dub/raggae aficionado, and the man behind the Stockholm dub club "DubDeck", met Nina Ramsby, former guitarist and lead singer in the band salt. At the time, Nina was looking for design and graphis arts work to finance her musical interests. She began working at Ricky's design firm F+, and in their off-hours, the two began writing music together That same year, Ricky bumped into Carl Herlöffson - guítar player /engineer/ producer extraordinaire and head of the Indie Label Primal Music - at his club. The chance meeting resulted in Ricky signing on as partner in Carl and his brother's label. By late '96, Ricky and Carl had become a prolific production team working as "Eclectic Bob", cutting instrumental club-oriented drum & bass tracks for Primal Music.

    One fateful day, Nina came into work at the studio and was introduced to Carl, bringing about the convergence of all three of the forces, destined to become Baxter. For the next three months, Ricky, Carl and Nina spent all of their spare time in the studio experimenting with sound, writing and recording, and before they knew it, they had completed the better part of an album. By the spring of '97, all that was left to do was a bit of polishing and mixing on the tracks. In the fall of '97, the three of them -- with a new name, Baxter -- sent out a 5-track promotional CD (comprising selections from their full length album). Almost immediately, major US labels were calling, raving about the band. After legthy negotiations and numerous overseas flights Baxter decided that Maverick Recording Co. was where the 'vibe' was
