Swedish newcomers Qulinez have established themselves as a fearless force amid their ascent to universal acknowledgement. Stumbling into the hands of Steve Angello’s Size Records with the Pete Tong approved winter anthem ‘Troll’, the young Scandinavian duo set their sights on the unsuspecting realms of Welsh alternative trio The Joy Formidable’s ‘A Heavy Abacus’. Bringing an elegant array of melodic leads alongside the original’s quirky vocal line, their apex is somewhat flat compared to that of their standard setting industry debut. Nevertheless bridging the gap between the unsuspecting original and the club floor to which Qulinez are proving aptly suited for with significant strength, ‘A Heavy Abacus’ is a track to which their studio capabilities successfully cater for.
The Tiësto-premiered Qulinez remix of ‘A Heavy Abacus’ will be released on April 24th via Canvasback/Atlantic Records.
