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.
