Short Bio

Niklas on Sax has been improvising live to DJ sets since the mid-80s.

The native Swede, who has been making music since childhood and lives in Berlin, has acquired his intuitive improvisational skills through countless performances in Berlin’s clubs as well as on the international stage. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, he fell into the irresistible maelstrom of new electronic music. He soon adapted his sound to the new innovative style of music by using an effects unit. Berlin was one of the worldwide hot spots. Active cooperation with the DJ and the audience is important to him.

He is one of the best DJ saxophonists in the world.

He began his professional music career in the West Berlin club scene in 1987 with regular appearances.

By using various sound effects and with his rhythmically playful runs, he always adapts to the DJ’s mix so sensitively that you forget you’re listening to a live musician at work.

As a studio musician, he has contributed to productions by Dr. Alban, Cari Lekebusch, Ellen Alien, Danijel Alpha, Mando Diao and other well-known producers, mostly from Berlin’s electronic music scene.

We can wholeheartedly recommend Niklas. Great playing! We had a great evening with him. The communication was flawless and professional. Many thanks Niklas 🙂

I booked Niklas on Sax for the opening of a DRK location. His background music for the reception of the guests was absolutely fitting and perfect for the event. I would describe the collaboration in 3 words: Uncomplicated! Reliable! Professional! Would I book Niklas again? Yes! Can I recommend him? Yes!


Niklas was a great enrichment for our wedding with 70 guests, which took place outside.

Musically, everything was just as we had discussed and hoped for beforehand.


I would definitely recommend Niklas. Especially for family celebrations ideal as accompaniment and framing. Relaxed and always between the guests, again at a distance. So no conversation at the champagne reception was disturbed.

Simply great.
