Kioreta - Strength


This cards belongs to one the four Erehan cards (Pillars of the Light) Erehan was the shield owned by Gibrel –incarnation of the god of Light– in which his will, was infused. At the top and bottom ends of the shield strips of fabric crown two capitals inscriptions from the philosophy of Light. The first, on the top, reads: unat kine temu, muten fal, meaning to ever reborn, and never fall. The second, on the bottom, reads: ata kintel sirev teeket, which in our language means fate has been written. It has inherent relationship with the doctrine of Elix fates.


Stockholm is the place where I was born and my roots stretches up in the north of Sweden where my heart also belongs among reindeers and Northern lights. I early became a huge fan of dance music and started raving in the late 90’s. As I started out to Dj I quickly fell in love with playing vinyls, mostly because it gave me a real challenge to learn the original art of DJ-ing having to use my ear and really learning the records. Since then It has been a constant search and crate digging. Inspiration comes from everywhere. My style travels from balearic sounds, disco, afro to house techno etc .. I just love it all. I’m a music lover of all kinds.


Strength was the natural card for for me. Last few years was all about strength for me and my inner strength has been tested over and over again. Strength is such an inhabitant in all of us, we find it everywhere in all things. We are exposed to situations in life that gives us opportunities to grow and get stronger each time time we choose to take on the challenge. It might be tempting to choose an easy path but by challenging yourself your world will expand. I wanted to transfer that feeling and pick tracks which represent that build up moment when you feel that power raising from within.
