Me and Niklas made a mix for the show Musikguiden i P3 on Swedish national radio P3.

The concept of the mix was to say goodbye to the exquisite summer that we had this year and to be prepared for the upcoming bleakness known as autumn, we’ve filled an hour with deep and dark techno/house which includes tracks from Riva Starr, DJ Nibc, Franskild and Monkey Safari along with remixes from the likes of Dixon, Doctor Dru, Forrest, Maya Jane Coles etc. Tune in and enjoy!

Berlin based producer/dj and founder of go-to tropical bass label Man RecordingsDaniel Haaksamn – teams up with Angolan singer Coréon Dú for his new summer anthemlike single “Lemba” that sounds like Berlin minimal goes afro house and the track has already seen support from the likes of Laurent Garnier, Riva Starr, Sinden, Roundtable Knights, Oliver $, Foamo, Schlachthofbronx, Nickodemus and many others.

All hail MVSEVM! The next release from MVSEVM comes armed to the teeth with transcendent big room vibes.

Take the astoundingly punchy “Expectations”, which sets things off to an immediate sizzle. Bleeding out with infectious vocals from a world famous singer, it’s always teetering on the edge of overheating and causing a dub-techno-meets-throbbing-indie-house-anthem meltdown of sorts. Everything careens towards the four minute mark, at which point the gloves come off and things degenerate into what sounds like a futuristic karaoke party taking place with mutated dolphins at the edge of the Pacific Ocean at the beginning of armageddon, the sky coloured a streaky cotton candy pink and blue.

“Pori Jazz” comes out the gate with a sizzling electricity simmering in the some deeply satisfying bassy horns and a trifecta of drums fluctuating over a baseline that’s sure to cause a few goosebumps on a decent sound system. It’s a slice of house maximalism served up perfectly – recommended highly for fans of early Zombie Disco Squad, Round Table Knights, or any kind of stuff that immediately makes you start stomping and clapping uncontrollably on first listen.

If Bob Ross from The Joy of Painting dropped peyote and went on a three day spirit quest, it’s very likely that he’d hear something like “Calligraphy” at the peak of his hallucination. A true big room anthem that’s simultaneously focused and wild, careening towards a blindingly bright climax, all rainbows, synth stabs, hands raised in the air, like some mp3 based new age religion based around the concept of ‘good vibe synthesis’. The dub version is optional for those who care more about dancing than drawing techniques.

Finally, Obi Blanche pumps some extra muscle onto “Calligraphy’s” already booming breakdown, something reminiscent of the twerky innovation in Renaissance Man’s “Spraycan” except with a gymnasium full of chopped accordians instead of an airhorn. Pushing the original into slightly weirder, darker grounds; it’s dance music to make your eyes roll into the back of your head.

MVSEVM has already garnered big support for their releases from Brodinski, Sinden, Fatboy Slim, Laidback Luke, Fake Blood, Crookers, Riva Starr, Feadz and way more!
