As the summer season beckons a steady influx of global Dance Music festival, Sweden’s celebrated Summerburst festival establishes yet another eclectic theme tune to accompany the excitement already surrounding this years events in Gothenburg and Stockholm. Following up last year’s loungier leading track ‘Summerburst’ alongside Charles Gudagåfva, Stockholm’s Darwin and Backwall return with the somewhat perkier ‘Never Makes You Weak’.
Replacing last year’s ambient anthem with a solid backbone of Progressive grooves, the energy of 2012’s Summerburst anthem certainly matches that of Sweden’s thriving scene. With a vocal edit of the track extending the emotive appeal courtesy of Daniel Gidlund, Summerburst inherits yet another essential theme song for its biggest year to date.
