Level 34: Simon Viklund (Payday series, Bionic Commando Rearmed, Pan Pan)

We packed so much music into this episode. I don’t want to give it away at all, so prepare yourself to hear everything from early 90s electronic to 21st century American pop music written by a famous Swedish record producer and songwriter.Today’s guest also comes from Sweden. Simon Viklund writes music for the Payday series of games, considered to be Left 4 Dead with cops instead of zombies. Four friends can play together doing large heists of some sort. And Simon voices the character who guides them through each step, Bain.

Simon also wrote the music for Bionic Commando Rearmed, a sort of remake on the NES game from ’88, Bionic Commando. And his newest project comes out later this month: Pan Pan.

I had such a blast talking with Simon, who was kind enough to do the interview while under the weather with a summer cold… wish him well, and enjoy our chat!
