1. Kalle Wahlberg a.k.a. Kaleb is a producer/dj/saxophone player and label owner from Helsinki, Finland. Kaleb first experienced the sounds of drum n' bass in 1996. A friend of his played him a mixtape by a local DJ and made him an avid fan of the genre. A few years from then, Kaleb started experimenting with music production, bought and learned to play saxophone, enrolled himself in a couple of bands and ended up playing jazz, funk and fusion. He played a handful of gigs, but soon after the turn of the third millennium Kaleb became more serious about producing and devoted more of his time into learning production techniques and making drum n' bass.
2003 saw Kaleb's first release on New York based label Phuturistic Bluez. Around the same time fellow dnb producer Champagne asked Kaleb and Physics to join him in starting a record label. After some planning and work, Midnight Sun Recordings launched. In the following years Kaleb has had his tunes released on UK based labels Defunked, Invader, Blindside, German labels BluSaphir and B.I.O.S, Finnish breaks label Exogenic Breaks, Midnight Sun and a new label - Primetime Recordings - which is run by himself and fellow finn Contour.
Kaleb's records have been in the bags of a number of well-known DJs including Bailey, Bryan G, LTJ bukem, Flight, Muffler, Cls&Wax, Unknown Error, Dieselboy etc.
