Having shed his new school accolades with the Cool Cat, Hot Dog EP alongside Peter Johansson earlier this year, longserving Swedish producer Niklas Gustavsson steps up to the mark with solo follow-up ‘Natural Thing’ alongside fellow countryman Ludvig Holm for Natura Vida. Mirroring Sweden’s currently potent club movements, their expertly fused outing of deeper House grooves and potent lead work make for an exuberant model for forward thinking club music. While its resolutely hypnotic samples and concise rhythmic persuasions tear it apart from the atypical Swedish anthem, its divergence is enough to hone in on the maximal energy and creative integrity boasted by these two fine specimens of Scandinavian talent.
‘Natural Thing’ is released on May 16th via Natura Viva.
