Wallenberg wants your remixes!
After many years in London, arranging clubs, creating art and being in electro bands, Petter Wallenberg (check his facebook site) returned to his native Sweden and realised that many of the things he had run away from were actually quite fun and loveable. And so he started Mums Mums (Swedish for yum yum) – a club, a magazine, a creative collective and a movement, bringing aesthetic chaos to the streamlined Scandistyle of Stockholm with twisted happenings, porn musicals and pig-nosed hostesses. All to the soundtrack of dance music from a time when love was the message.
Now Mums Mums turns into a new incarnation, that of a record label, as he releases his debut album. The album itself, Legends, is one big stage featuring the whole cast of his background. A fusion of Disco with old school Hiphop, Electro, Lovers rock, Punk and classic House, on Legends Wallenberg collaborates with his favorite female artists of all time. Stars like Ari Up from pioneering punk group The Slits appear alongside early Swedish rap icons Leila K and Efti (of cult girl group Midi, Maxi & Efti), next to new edgy talent like Mapei and JWL B (of Florida rappers Yo Majesty). It also features soul divas Victoria Wilson James (Soul II Soul and The Shamen) and Octavia St Laurent from the legendary documentary about the vogue scene, Paris Is Burning. Both Ari Up and Octavia St Laurent later died of cancer, making their appearances even more precious.
Wallenberg’s first single, Legendary (featuring Leila K), is released on the 30th of May 2011. The lyrics are based on a triumphantly bitchy line from Paris is burning, introducing the album’s battle cry, “I’m legendary – you’re not!”
Big name producers, DJ’s, fans and beginners – you are all invited to make your own version of “Legendary” (The acapella is available on his website). Mums Mums Records and Cosmos Music Group will then pick out the remixes they like the most and release them both digitally and on an exclusive vinyl 12″!
Wallenberg is looking for your very special remix. Do your thang and remember – you are legendary!
