Fast ascending progressive house foodchain, Norwegian duo Carl Louis and Martin Danielle are back with yet another blissful release in the form of ‘The Stockholm Syndrome’ alongside Kish and Fröder. While the duo’s transition from nostalgic leads to uplifting lead play make for nothing outside of the ordinary where genre constraints are concerned, ‘The Stockholm Syndrome’ consistently balances its melodic resonance with an incredibly catchy vocal line to bag the Scandinavians yet another promising foot forward on the European dance circuit.

With Norway promptly catching up on its industry-leading neighbours, the country’s leading Progressive export Carl Louis and Martin Danielle return to remix duties with a strong take on Arty’s current Beatport #3, ‘Together We Are’.

Rife with the light, euphoric synths that pervaded last year’s acclaimed ‘Black Eyes & Blue’, the Norwegian duo’s poignant remix brings a key driven emphasis to their signature melodic developments. Aptly set for release on March 18th through Big Beat Records, CLMD add yet another Progressive House gem to their arsenal for the Miami Music Week.

Following last year’s original release, Norwegian duo Carl Louis and Martin Danielle return to release three brand-new originals along with the instrumental version and a four-track remix package for their follow-up single to ‘Black Eyes & Blue.’

While ‘Rain,’ ‘Friction’ and ‘PIASOM’ showcase the duo’s ability of taking the familiar and making it their own, the remix package of ‘Falling Like Angels’ sees Sebjak take the lead with a hard-hitting club interpretation, leaving it to Nils Noa, Coucheron and Kasket to represent the less commercial side of Dance music.

In an experimental effort of blissful synths and crisp hi-hats, Carl Louis and Martin Danielle’s latest remix continues to prove that their laurels are never rested on.

With Norway promptly catching up on its industry-leading neighbours for 2012, the country’s leading Progressive export Carl Louis and Martin Danielle return for round two under their CLMD moniker with ‘Falling Like Angels’. Cut from the same melodic cloth that pervaded their acclaimed ‘Black Eyes and Blue‘ single, the duo’s ability to carve the distinct top line into a sweep of stuttering synths is a sure standout factor for this coming of age peak timer. With stern production values and intense emotive energy in full effect, ‘Falling Like Angels’ is a strong indication that the expanding fate of modern Progressive House looks exceedingly promising in the hands of this rising Norwegian duo and their inventive approach to production.

Update: The official video has been released.

While they may have boasted themselves as Norway’s most anonymous production duo in the past, the support of Sony behind their brand new label endeavour Up North is enough to suggest that Carl Louis and Martin Danielle are no longer as sheltered as they might think. For their CLMD debut, the promising Scandinavian producers attribute their finest melodic intellect to a landmark offering of peacefully charged melodics and keen industrious footsteps. What it lacks in overall production values, ‘Black Eyes & Blue’ retains a solid vibe alongside its impressive emotively charged top line from Norwegian Indie enthusiast Ingrid Håvik. Drawing on the euphoric realms of earlier Progressive House and expanding its melodic canvas with impressive vigour, this may not be their definitive anthem, but Louis and Danielle assemble for a promising nod to the future for their collaborative stylings under this fresh-faced moniker.
