Helsingborg House contender Alexander Adstedt is slowly proving to be more than a short-lived blip on his country’s musical radar. Already mustering the support of Swedish House Mafia and Avicii, who will drop his ‘We’re Still Here’ track on Le7els later this year, his next instalment is one of notable velocity for the aspiring Swede. Seamlessly transitioning from tender melodic swells to a gritty drop of grinding low-end lead work, his take on Lina Harriette’s ‘Illusion’ incorporates the best elements of two popular genres currently dominating the EDM spectrum. Emerging with a multi-layered concoction of triumphant club fuel, his next solo endeavour is sure to cause a stir given the intense quality of effort brought to this standout remix.
