Celebrating the release of the Hollywood remake of the successful Swedish 2009 motion picture, based on one of the many ingriguing books from Stieg Larsson, five festivities are arranged to take place across the globe, whereof one is set to take place in Sweden capital. Also hosting a number of top-class DJ acts, Saturday evening at Ambassadeur in Stockholm, Sweden is certain to be a convivial event.
The line-up – headlined by a DJ set from Miike Snow Sound System, which consists of Christian Karlsson, Pontus Winnberg and Andrew Wyatt from the indie pop group Miike Snow – embraces a widespread variety of different genres and sounds. Founded in 2007, Miike Snow are a trio responsible for a diverse sound and a wide pallette of top notch radio hits like Animal, Black & Blue and Silvia off their self-titled debut album in 2009. Having made appearances on worldwide television, been given prime-time air-time on BBC’s radio channels and other established radio stations as well as being featured in numerous sport games and events, their luscious and rhythmical sound has planted themselves as a sensational act in the music industry. And not only have their outputs become vastly recognized hit singles on the radio, but their onslaught on electronic dance music has made notable impact on clubland over the past couple of years with remix duties from Sebastian Ingrosso & Dirty South, Bart B More, Crookers, DJ Mehdi and more.
Chase & Status, the electronic music duo from London, are also joining in on the string of unique acts coming to Sweden this weekend. With their second album, ”No More Idols” out, Will Kennard and Saul Milton have become two of the more influential producers in drum and bass, breakbeat and dubstep lately. Holding a track roster that comprises everything from the intricate sound design of ‘End Credits’, with Plan B, to soothing records like Time, with an amazing vocal from Delilah, Chase & Status are recurringly showing their capability of combining different genres into a spot-on merge.
Noisia, the Dutch trio who recently signed with Deadmau5′ Mau5trap label, are responsible for a dynamic touch to the drum and bass and dubstep scenes. Nik Roos, Martijn van Sonderen and Thijs de Vlieger’s complex and creative take on the elementary dubstep has become their crucial ground-breaker along with recent-times releases on Mau5trap. Despite the fact that they have been around since early 00’s, it’s not until recently the Dutchmen have breached new barriers with the release of Tommy’s Theme, a remix to Deadmau5 and more.
Last but not least, we have Alex Drury, professionally known as Alex Metric, rounding this unique line of eminent electronic music icons off. Primarily known for his infamous collaboration with Steve Angello, titled ‘Open Your Eyes’, and the quite recent remix to Niki & The Dove’s ‘Mother Protect’ which has been a regular in the live sets of the entire camp Swedish House Mafia this year, mainly in a mashup with Afrojack’s ‘Replica’, Metric has become a household name of EMI Music after also having remixed the likes of Depeche Mode, Bloc Party, La Roux, NERD, Phoenix and more.
