Sweden’s Claes Rosen has taught the industry a thing or two about vintage melodic stylings. But amid his underground accession and countless instalments of organic club wizardry, the post-summer season sees him take on remix duties for Moussa Clarke and John Ashby’s ”Much Better”.
Dismissing the more predictable avenues of Deep House that have pervaded 2012, the subtle analogue flares and infectious melodics make for as refreshing a release as one could hope for.
While the stereotype goes that Sweden’s Dance music export remain synonymous with huge synths, homeland producer Claes Rosen has always had other ideas. Sporting a more soothing take on progressive house, Rosen makes way for his return with a debut on Stateside label French Express to give away his latest poolside groover ‘Tortuga’. Aptly dubbed by the label as ‘Tropical Euphoria’ and made up of elegant melodic swirls, Rosen’s soulful charge of warm synth play shines a bright light for old-school ideals that evidently remain ear candy to the modern industry.
