AboutFamiljen (in English "The Family") is the alias of Swedish techno/electropop artist Johan T Karlsson.

Karlsson grew up in Hässleholm, Skåne (the same town as fellow electronica producers Andreas Tilliander and Stefan Thor (Folie)), but is currently based in Malmö. In his youth as a synthpop fan he also formed bands with Sophie Rimheden from nearby Lund. Karlsson has previously produced Swedish indie band David & the Citizens.

Karlsson describes his music as indie-techno:
"I'm pretty fed up with guitar - Indie and techno can get a bit monotone after a while."


All his lyrics are in Swedish, or the southern dialect of Scanian to be more precise. He performs live with Andreas Tilliander on synthesizer.
Both the album and the single Det snurrar i min skalle are released on Tellé in Norway, the same label as Röyksopp, Annie and Kings Of Convenience. Creative Vibes Recordings released the album in Australia in 2008.
In October 2007 Familjen won the Swedish web-based music competition Rampmusic (competitions were also held in Norway and Denmark). Some unexpected help came from the file sharing community The Pirate Bay, who on their website encouraged their visitors to vote for him (without Karlsson's knowledge).

Both music videos directed by Karlsson feature a previously shown image overlayed with a hand-drawn heart for the last few seconds.
