The area Möllan in Malmö Sweden is unique not only in Sweden. In just a couple of blocks; bars, night clubs and concert venues are in every corner. The inhabitants are mainly people under 25 and people from the Middle east. Living side by side in a mixed culture. It creates something where it’s as natural to go clubbing on a weekday as having a baklava or halawi with your coffee. It’s in the core of this you find VED. Music made for dancing and meditation.

VED started as a solo-project by Mattias Nihlén taking inspiration from filmmusic, progressive rock, early electronic music and folk music. From a more drone-based ambient, the music has developed into a rhythmic machinery with elements of horror movie soundtracks, surf-rock and found cassettes. VED is now also a fully developed live band delivering hypnotic instrumental rock music.
