Here's a little bit about the history of CHEIRON.
1986 - 1993: how it all began...
The SweMix-Team

In a gathering of the top 10 DJs in Stockholm, late 1985 the subject of creating a DJ service was brought up. As remixers, some of them had already done work for Swedish acts like Roxette and Secret Service. Others were experimenting with live keyboards and drum machines in their DJ sets. The competition were US services like "Disconet" and "Hot Tracks", but also the new UK based "DMC".

SweMix was founded early 1986 in the south parts of Stockholm and a small 4-track studio was set up in the basement of the two storey office. The product was named Remixed Records and the first issue was released in April the same year.
Remixed Records gathered big interest from the start in Scandinavia, but after a year Germany, Italy and the Netherlands joined. The mixes became more sofisticated as the studio got bigger and soon artist were dropping by SweMix to get a deal or a production. Two labels were started; Basement Division for the underground stuff and SweMix Records via Swedish Sonet for comercial records.

Denniz PoP, whose talent was already highly visable at this time, did the first track on SweMix Records called "Gimme Some Mo' (Bass On Me)" and the most memorable moment of Basement Division was StoneBridge's "Jazzy John's Freestyle Dub" that later became an underground hit with Zoom Records in the UK 1990. The new German label Public Propaganda approached SweMix to do a label deal for SweMix in Germany with records by StoneBridge, Terry Leigh and others.
By now SweMix was established as the top DJ organisation in Sweden with weekly spots on Stockholm club Ritz including the legendary Bat Club. A collaboration with new dance independent B Tech gave SweMix recognition in the UK with the EP series "Going Back To Basics" Vol. I, II and III with artists like Natural Experience, Ann Consuelo and Underground Posse. B Tech also licensed records, mainly from Traxx and other independents in Chicago, which were remixed by SweMix and exported throughout Europe.

In 1989 SweMix expanded with new co-owner Tom Talomaa, who re-organised the company and started to sign artist on long term basis. SweMix was divided into the Tom Talomaa run SweMix Records & Publishing and SweMix Productions.
New acts DaYeene, Kayo and Dr. Alban were signed and in 1990 Dr. Alban's debut single "Hello Afrika" (written & produced by Denniz PoP) became a worldwide success paving the way for the other artists.

In 1991 SweMix Productions sold the DJ service Remixed Records to the head of exports, Giovanni Sconfienza, who later reformed Remixed Records to a label. SweMix was now fully concentrating on club projects, artist developement and remixes.

A new label called BTB Records (Back To Basics) was started as an output for club records. The first release was "Visions Of Rage" by up and coming producer Dragon Fly (Johan S).
Following the huge success of Dr. Alban, SweMix Records & Publishing and the artist roster was sold to BMG early 1993. Original founders René Hedemyr, Sten "StoneBridge" Hallström, Emil Hellman, Robert "Rob Below" Broman and Johan "JJ" Järpsten kept the name SweMix and the label BTB to continue as an independent production company. Former SweMix Records & Publishing was renamed CHEIRON to be run by Tom Talomaa and Denniz PoP.
