Rising Swede hopefuls Karl Palmblad & Daniel Tervaniemi have made quite a name for themselves as studio collective turned Mixmaster-Generals Don Palm. Already brushing shoulders with the likes of David Guetta and turning up the volume at the prestigious Sensation White, their relatively short career has seen them draw some positive support from places far further than their hometown of Gotenbourg.
Further utilizing their mixing skills for the masses unable to make the big events, episode five sets out to build on the vivacious soundscape that has already proven its first four instalments instantaneously popular. Be it the mighty Axwell remix of Feenixpawl and Ivan Gough’s Progressive House single ‘In My Mind’, the Zedd remix of Skrillex and The Doors’ ‘Breakn A Sweat‘ or the heavy grind of Tommy Trash’s cut of Steve Aoki and Wynter Gordon’s ‘Ladi Dadi’, the buffer of hard-hitting tracks are padded out by a handful of seamless mash-ups that separates the boys from the crowd. In the same vein as their increasingly powerful live shows, round five of their monthly series of mixtapes screams wonders for this sincerely riveting Swedish force and what is proving to be quite the asset to their rise upwards.
