Swedish producer Name the Pet released her new album “Än” last week, the album consists of ten soulful, electronic pop songs intertwining Name the Pets smooth vocals with playful productions inspired by British dance music from the 00’s as well as the early works of Sade.

“You know when a car passes in London and you hear some really nice beat playing from the open car window, that’s the vibe I was going for with “Radion lovar regn”, says Name the Pet referring to the first song on the album.”

As a songwriter, producer and boss of her own label, Name the Pet is a part of an emerging scene of female producers in Stockholm.

Alec Baker is the moniker for Sweden based guitarist and producer Viktor Jansåker. Having spent the main part of the last two years traveling between Sweden, London, and New York, including spending countless late-night sessions in studios and bedrooms has resulted in numerous songs, unexpected collaborations and newfound friendships.

On his magnificent debut single, “Sunslide”, he goes down a path to make sure we get a soulful, warm weather-ready pop jam with help from Summer Heart (also a producer on the track) and London rapper Tony Jian. The track is the first of many that will present Alec Baker to a wider audience and is released today via our friends over at Swedish label Something Beautiful.

“To me, the song gives a dreamlike impression, similar to the feeling big cities sometimes give you. People from all over the world are drawn to those places, to live within that energy. We wrote the song after I spent a lot of time in London and New York. I experienced some fantastic things, but also got an insight into the downsides. The song is a result of both.”
