Adding to Sweden’s already immaculate assembly of downright tasteful House players, horror-film enthusiast turned king of ‘wobble’ Albin Myers has become one of the Swedish undergrounds most affluent acts to date. With a host of essential cuts for the likes of Defected Records and Mutants Records, Myers’ diverse scope for remixes has further established him as a positive bridge between the European underground and the high-end of the international music industry.
But if 2011 taught us anything about the promising Swede producer, it was that Myers’ vivacious studio output is still profoundly heavy and ultimately charged towards to the dance floor. In the same vein as the aptly named ‘Wobble’ , newly released stormer Hells Bells deals in haunting chimes and rising leads that rise into a well-rigged onslaught of trembling low-end frequencies. Given a well-deserved blast by Tiësto at the Globe Arena for his ultimate nod to Sweden’s resurrected club scene, it seems evident that Myers will be leading the way for his Swedish peers in 2012.
N.B. ‘Hells Bells’ is also due to be released later as the headliner of an Albin Myers EP on Dim Mak Records.
