Robbin Söderlund & Marcus Wennesjö are Brilliant. That isn’t a cringing boast, but the confident moniker now associated with two very promising blips on the Swede House radar. Taking their first shot at Armada offset Zouk Recordings, the duo plant two solid tracks in order to prove their worth amid the hordes of perky Swedish contenders currently doing the rounds. While ‘Higher’ appears a relatively tame contender on its ascent to the tracks drop, its mechanical precision and dutifully brutal Electro leads make for an unexpected triumph in multifaceted musical stylings. The delicate intertwining leads of ‘Action Mode’ may not mirror the title so aptly, but with notable precision their transition to the saw-led sanctuary forms an unoffensive B-Side for this landmark EP from a rather fresh asset to the European ranks.

The ‘Higher / Action Mode’ EP is released March 19th via Zouk Recordings.

Brilliant – Higher
Brilliant – Action Mode

  • Så jävla bra! sköna jävla drop med mycket ös!

  • Go Brillian!! :D

  • Two awesome tracks! Give us more!!!!

  • Bääm! :D Nyskapande! Nu sätter ni Er och Sverige på Världskartan!

  • Ni är GRYMMA, ni kommer ta världen med storm

  • Perfect!!! Sounds great! :-)

  • You’d better watch out for these boys. Everything I’ve heard from them= INSANE!

    Keep it up :D

  • Guys, you are creating a new style of music amd it’s BRILLIANT! ;) BIG UPS GUYS!

    // Mess Uuuuuup!

  • logo looks like blinders’ logo

  • Nothing really for my taste

  • Creative? Dont get what you guys mean with that. It sounds like every other track nowdays with a similar bassline.

    Anyhow, it’s a bit weak and nothing for my taste..

  • Sounds like everything else, but worse .. they sound too stiff imo.

  • I really love it! Those of you who says it sounds like everyone else, I think they got something in their tracks that doesnt sound like anything else.. But there’s always some jealousy that complain.. Anyways, great work and I like your other tracks you got on soundcloud too..

  • @AQ + Sille, what planet are you on? What exactly is ”everything else” for you because I don’t think this comes anywhere close to being even fairly similar to ”everything else” these days. I really like Higher

  • I’m so tired of the ”electro”-influenced house…

  • @O.W, don’t listen to it then?

    Freakin’ awesome broes…. BIG UP!

  • Nyskapande? Långt ifrån, låter precis som mycket annat som produceras idag.

  • HUGE!! kan inte säga mer än riktigt jävla grymt! ännu ett par svenskar, stolt svensk kan jag säga då också.. Ser verkligen fram emot mer från dessa grabbar, dom kommer gå långt helt klart!
    @Oscar, brukar inte påpeka andras kommentarer, men det låter inte precis som allt annat som produceras idag. Dom har något i sina låtar som låter eget OCH om det nu låter lite likt så är det ju inte konstigt. Gör man musik år 2012 så går man ju lite efter vad som är populärt och vad folket gillar. Bättre än Avicii mainstream kopior i alla fall. Extremely good work, Brilliant ftw <3


  • Bra jobbat ”Brilliant”.. det här är bra musik ska jag säga!
    Som ni kanske märker finns det avundsjuka och pessimistiska människor överallt i världen. Extremt många av de bor här i Sverige, tyvärr… men förvånansvärt med tanke på invånare per km2. Dessa människor älskar att hata istället för att komma med något vettigt som t.ex. konstruktiv kritik.

    När exempelvis SHM slog igenom på allvar, var Sverige i princip det landet, där de fick mest negativa kommentarer, kritik och feedback ifrån. Det talar sitt tydliga språk.

    Vi borde istället vara tacksamma och glada över alla dessa musikaliskt begåvad artister som Sverige har och som ständigt levererar inom EDM.

    Brilliant ni är duktiga!
    Fortsätt så här och jag önskar er all lycka i framtiden!

  • @Prosit: Nicky Romero, R3hab, Cazzette, Tommy Trash and maybe even Qulinez to name a few, they got something thats unique. This is just a bad attempt to to sound something like them and everyone else that copies this style.

    Dont blame me for hating and that Im jealous, coz Im not. This is just what I think and I cant understand you that says it’s so original.

  • ”Guys, you are creating a new style of music amd it’s BRILLIANT! BIG UPS GUYS!”

    i loled

  • @AQ – I agree with you!

  • @AQ: as a producer, you should go after which is populair and liked by the people. Nowadays everyone take influenses from artist to artist everytime. Only if it sounds good it doesnt matter! and this sounds very good, they are talented.. You named a few artist that I react on, for example: Qulinez, they has taken a lot of ideas from ”Ferry Corsten – Check it out (Bassjackers Remix) and it sounds very clearly. Please, don’t blame this boys when everybody else in this industry do the same! you can’t find a completely unique sound of this genre. Everyone will always sound a bit same! that’s it…

  • @Timmy: Yeah everyone does it. But I reacted when people said it was ”creative” ”a new style” etc.. It isn’t.

    Anyway, I dont think this tracks will be picked up by the big dudes.

  • @AQ: Smells like someones jealous? I bet you’re from Sweden. The swedish jealousy never cease to amaze me.

  • Äntligen börjar electro komma till sverige!

  • I’m not easily impressed. . . but that’s impressing me! :)

  • How neat! Is it really this simple? You make it look easy.

  • I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  • No complaints on this end, simply a good piece.

  • This is a really intelligent way to answer the question.

  • You’ve managed a first class post

  • I see, I suppose that would have to be the case.

  • The expertise shines through. Thanks for taking the time to answer.

  • Holy shiznit, this is so cool thank you.

  • Holy concise data batman. Lol!

  • I am totally wowed and prepared to take the next step now.

  • I’m impressed by your writing. Are you a professional or just very knowledgeable?
