Outside of his role within Sweden’s elite House export, there is something unchallengeable about the consistent force of Axwell and his dignified imprint. Carrying forward the definitive hallmarks now associated with Axtone’s frequently groundbreaking and often replicated sound scope, Swedish Indie Pop peers Miike Snow are on hand with another formidable top line at the mercy of German Progressive force and forthcoming compilation maestro Thomas Gold.
While infectious synth play and distinct drops of intense attitude remain at the heart of this imprint’s perfected craft, their familiar German contributor certainly knows how to cater for a label that is proving something of a comfortable home-from-home to this high-ranking European House perfectionist of impressive peak time persuasion. On the back of solo endeavour ‘Sing2Me’ and further international exploits for the tectonic German House asset, his remix of ‘The Wave’ sets the standard for club-minded remix duties to an all time high amid Thomas Gold’s ongoing ascent to universal adoration.
Update: The Thomas Gold remix of ‘The Wave’ will be released on May 14 via Axtone Records.
Update: Official preview added
