Dungen frontman/mastermind Gustav Ejstes has been making music for nearly 20 years.  As a teenager in rural Sweden, he became obsessed with hip-hop and sampling.  Digging through crates and searching for obscure source material provided him with an informal education in 60’s pop and psychedelia.  In 2007, Dungen coalesced into a fully democratic band, with members Reine Fiske, Mattias Gustavsson, and Johan Holmegard helping Ejstes to realize his vision while adding flourishes of their own.  As a result, Dungen grew into one of the best and most consistently inventive psych rock bands in the world.
