Persson was born and raised in Örebro, Sweden. He started out as a guitarist in a local rock band called Fallen Angel. The band signed a deal to German record label Massacre records when Persson was 18, releasing their first album titled Faith Fails. At age twenty-two, Persson formed his second band, Waving Corn, the band signed to Roadrunner Records in Holland. After the release of their album Tearsurf the band decided to split up after three years of intense touring over Europe. During the recording of Tearsurf, Persson met engineer Niclas Molinder at the studio Eagle One, and together they formed a new production team called Twin.


In the beginning Persson and Molinder focused on club remixes and quickly scored a No. 1 dance hit with "La Fiesta" in The Netherlands. The duo then kept delivering remixes for artists such as Jamiroquai, Jennifer Brown, Robyn, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Kylie Minogue. TWIN later signed a deal with Zomba Jive as DJ/producers. As part of this agreement, they released the successful singles "A New Day" and "Electrified Love".
