Superb ambient sounding techno from Skymning (Stockholm based producer Erik Lagerholm) which has already received praise from the likes of Gidge and Johanna Knutsson, three track EP “Dvala” is his first release on Swedish label Waves/Longitudinalwaves.

“Step into hibernation, and give the space that surround you a warm welcome. Close your eyes and think about those places where you felt something, a feeling that fulfilled you, a feeling that lasted. As fantasies and memories become increasingly lucid, you feel your mind opening up. You are restarting. Recharging. Starting to power back up. At this point you’ve almost reached a state of dormancy, at this point you are ready to listen to Dvala.”

The reigning Swedish (albeit residing in Berlin) techhouse queen Johanna Knutsson has during a short time period gone from strength to strength with her own production work and also her involvement with the gentlemen techno warriors in Berlin label Klasse Recordings. During the last couple of months she has been working non-stop with fellow Berlin based producer Hans Berg and these efforts will be released in the form of an upcoming release on Fullbarr along with a remix of Shane Berry that’s being released February 18th on Thoughtless Music. She is also getting ready to start a new label with two friends.

Johanna has already established herself as one of the most interesting names in the current dance music scene, not to mention one of the hardest working – and we are proud to present this Discobelle exclusive promo mix that showcases her style and finesse, the mix contains a brand new track from her collaboration with Hans Berg and is packed with deep, pumping and soulful techhouse.
