As formally premiered in episode eight of Avicii’s ‘Levels’ podcast last year, Henrik B is joined by homeland peers Niklas Gustavsson and Peter Johansson for a collaborative debut single on LE7ELS Recordings with ‘Echoes’, formerly known as ‘Voices’.
Armed with a sample from The Police’s ‘Voices Inside My Head’, the track’s somewhat cheesy undertone is not enough to draw the light away from the strong melodic properties that pervade ‘Echoes’. Despite slightly reminiscent of Arty and Matisse & Sadko’s ‘Trio’, the mix of The Police’s timeless vocal and blissful melodics makes for another firm indication that Sweden’s trend-setting Progressive House export remains as strong and influential as ever.
Out May 20th.
As officially premiered in episode eleven of Avicii’s Levels podcast, Swedish producer Henrik B unveils another forthcoming original release of his following the preview of ‘Voices’ late last year. This time, teaming up with fellow Swede Viktor Kannella for ‘Rise Of The Phoenix’.
Drawing on the raw sound scope we last saw him portray with 2011’s ‘Acid Rocker’, ‘Rise Of The Phoenix’ rallies a propulsive, acid-esque beat, complete with haunting melodic play and acoustic guitar riffs, providing further testament to Henrik B’s quality-over-quantity approach.
More info on the release as we get it.
As formally premiered in episode 8 of Avicii’s ‘Levels’ podcast, Henrik B is joined by homeland peers Niklas Gustavsson and Peter Johansson for a collective debut on LE7ELS Recordings with ‘Voices’.
Armed with a sample from The Police’s ‘Voices Inside My Head’, the track’s somewhat cheesy undertone is not enough to draw the light away from the strong melodic properties that pervade ‘Voices’. Despite being eerily reminiscent of Arty and Matisse & Sadko’s ‘Trio’, the balancing of The Police’s timeless vocal line and blissful melodics makes for another firm indication that Sweden’s trend-setting Progressive House export remains as strong and influential as ever before.
Out soon on LE7ELS Recordings.
It is no secret that Henrik B has established himself as something of a beacon for Swedish House music’s promising new school contenders. Armed with robust keys, well executed builds and a haunting vocal line from Rudy, the contemporary Swede producer hits a middle ground in global House music that defies the tedium of his chart-raking peers while still playing out as universally attainable to both the club floor and radio alike.
But calling upon Dutch daredevils NO_ID for remix duties, ‘Leave A Light On’ is given an essential injection of the Axtone duos hard-hitting musical stamina from the outset. Drawing on the originals anthemic vocal line and building a canvas of solid synth work around its emotive tones, their remix transitions from piercing keys to aggressive chords with impressive technical substance. Their remodel, though invariably close to their securely established sound, is enough to place them at the heart of their genre while establishing a firm ground for the Dutch duo not only to claim their diversity amid their hometown peers, but to soar to unprecedented levels amid a European onslaught within Electronic music.

Avicii’s first sold-out performance at Stockholm’s Globe Arena proved a memorable homecoming for the Swedish superstar for both good and bad reasons. Committing the first show to his younger fans, the sold-out event saw fans as young as 13 gather to celebrate his accession to the ranks of universal EDM icon.
After a well-received opening set from Alexander Adstedt, Stockholm’s Sebjak took to the stage. Already accredited by the likes of EMI and Steve Angello’s Size Records, there was something considerably apt in the addition of hometown heretic to Avicii’s momentous return. Though the crowd were slow to open up to his initial musical manoeuvres, the solid melodic flow of his meticulous studio output was not entirely lost on the younger crowd. Leading with a host of new tracks, including the forthcoming release ‘Follow Me’, a somewhat inconsistent roar from the crowd kept the young Swede afloat for his biggest hometown appearance to date.
Captivating the crowd with as dynamic an opening as they come, Cazzette were out to show their Swedish peers just what has earned them their inauguration to the At Night family. Launching into their own remix of Dada Life’s ‘Rolling Stone T-shirt’, there was a sense of total control surrounding their expertly deployed set of heavy-handed Electro House. Pummelling the arena with Electronic cuts of a rock star persuasion, the fluttering between their bread and butter Electro cuts and inadvertent Dub Step drops was the perfect accompaniment to a set which scaled so many avenues within their genre.
There is a lot to be said for the streak of luck Tim Bergling has had of late. Where on the one hand his universal appeal has soared to an all time high, a backdrop of ill fate has followed the Swedish star. Thus when a VIP platform of the arena collapsed two-stories, taking 30 people with it in the process, what should have been a positive homecoming was promptly turned into a desperate scenario for all involved. Avicii’s set was predictable at best, but ticked all the right boxes as far as his younger fans were concerned. While the immediate roar of adoration for ‘Levels’ masked the ensuing chaos above, you would struggle to argue with the energy that ignited this 10,000 strong crowd of young fans who would otherwise be lost to the realms of Electronic Dance Music. Dropping forthcoming singles ‘Nicktim’ and ‘Silhouettes’ to the avail of a crowd who evidently hadn’t done their homework, the ardent reaction from every attendee was enough to highlight that Avicii is still an unfathomable force in Electronic Dance Music.
The cancelation of Friday night’s second show threw us promptly on to Stockholm’s Ambassadeur for an off-the-cuff performance from the second day’s supporting artists Henrik B and David Tort.With an output extending from Axtone to Defected, David Tort took to the stage ahead of Henrik B for a blast of some essential cuts from the Spanish House kingpin. Where ‘One Look’ proved to still be an instant crowd pleaser, his extended flow of Progressive vibes certainly set the scene for a promising after party given the events of the night. Fresh of the mark from a spate of global escapades, Henrik B was on epic form for his warm-up show for the second day of Avicii’s homecoming at the Globe Arena. Diving straight in to an eclectic bag of productions from across the spectrum, his overt enthusiasm and sterling programming skills were enough to muster a considerable stir from the thinning crowds. Between his new single ‘Leave A Light On’ and his divergent take on Avicii’s ‘Levels’, there was a considerable edge of quality to his performance. Though some may have questioned the mainstream content of his after party slot, his ability to seamlessly cut between genres while still imposing a cohesive flow of floor fuel shone a light for Henrik Berntsson throughout his performance.

Having been inaugurated in the good books with his seminal remix for Adrian Lux’s ‘Teenage Crime’ for Axtone, the return of dignified Swedish House tune smith Henrik B alongside Rudy, the voice behind ‘In The Air’ was always going to touch upon positive anticipation amid his canvas of unpretentious Progressive House. But calling upon Dutch daredevils NO_ID to take on remix duties, ‘Leave A Light On’ is given an essential injection of the Axtone duos hard-hitting musical stamina from the outset. Drawing on the originals anthemic vocal line and building a canvas of solid synth work around its emotive tones, their remix transitions from piercing keys to aggressive chords with impressive technical substance.
Rife with the effervescent energy of their latest single for Diffused, ‘How R U Feeling Right Now’, their remodel is enough to place them at the heart of their genre while establishing a firm ground for the Dutch duo not only to claim their diversity amid their hometown peers, but to soar to unprecedented levels. Already boasting spots at Axwell’s Cosmic Opera alongside Deniz Koyu and further outings with the illustrious Swede set for Miami Music Week, their general sense momentum is perfectly encapsulated in this standout remix of a truly sound calibre.

It is no secret that Henrik B has established himself as something of a beacon for Swedish House music’s promising new school contenders. Already a favourite at the likes of Axtone and Musical Freedom, Henrik Berntsson is channelling the positive space surrounding himself and his Swedish peers into some of the scenes most well-endowed House anthems to date, mustering loud and positive support across the globe in the process.
In the same vein as his own workings of Adrian Lux’s ‘Teenage Crime’, Berntsson establishes himself as a stronghold for emotively charged club music with that vital punch of vivacity that the club floor beckons. Armed with robust keys, well executed builds and a haunting vocal line from Rudy, his latest arrangement of well-groomed Progressive House is an asset not only to his own studio output, but the thriving Swedish scene in which he is well and truly leading the way with quality masterfully overtaking quantity. If this is the standard set for international talent, let it B!
Leave A Light On is set for release soon via Axtone Records.

‘Henrik B feat. Rudy – Leave A Light On’ played at Svenska Mässan
If the Scandinavian’s choice to celebrate Christmas a day earlier than the rest of the world had never held much in the way of benefits before 2011, then this year truly rewrote the rulebooks. Boasting an already comfortable year for the reputation and influx of fine Swedish House music, a stellar cast of its home grown talent descended on Gothenburg to not only nod to one of the globes most outdated traditions to date, but tip their hats to a year that truly put the country’s thriving musical legacy back on the map.
Reaping in the essential support of Tiësto and his rising hometown peer Hardwell for latest banger ‘Crunch’, fresh-faced Gothenburgian homeboy Franz Novotny took on the task of opening the night’s festive outing of Swedish talent following a promising year for the relatively unknown newcomer. Despite being severely delayed, Novotny’s second live outing highlighted the true potential of the 18-year-old, dealing the early crowds an energetic outing of unreserved House music despite the unfortunate hiccup.
Linus Eklöw, the man behind the rising European House moniker Style Of Eye, was sure to be in true festive spirit the subsequent year of positively frenzied antics. As a self professed radical against all imaginable genre constraints and guidelines, the Stockholm based producer has gradually deviated from outright Techno to multifaceted dance floor dissipation, attracting the likes of Claude Von Stroke’s Dirty Bird and German imprint Pickadoll along the way to establish himself as something of a leader of Sweden’s new school House movement. In an energetic display of popular dance floor fillers, Eklow’s technical approach to his live set added a dimension of appeal to his already sterling reputation for live House music, using current favourites from Dada Life, Avicii and Swedish House Mafia to keep the crowds large and loud throughout his triumphant return to Sweden.
Making an unforgettable mark on James Blunt’s ‘Dangerous’ back in August alongside Deniz Koyu, Johan Wedel’s fearless approach to owing offerings has sealed him an unwritten seal as one of Sweden’s youngest budding heroes amid the scenes uncharted territories. Boasting a sharp hand for intense outings of unassuming Progressive House cuts, last night’s highly anticipated Christmas showdown marked an incredibly suitable arena for the 21year-old beat smith to strut his stuff after a long withstanding residency in Cannes. Donning an incredibly loud jacket to the night’s festive proceedings, Wedel’s enthusiastic sing-alongs and diverse range of material seemed to hit all the right notes for those in attendance at this long awaited hometown return for the promising Swede hopeful. Despite his set suffering the wrath of earlier delays, Wedel dealt a direct and energetic blow of an own re-edit alongside a host of well-received leaps from emotive builds and powerful drops, proving exactly why he deserves the attention mustered throughout 2011.
Warily balancing the realms of mainstream club mongering and earnest dissident dance floor contributions whilst keeping a weary distance from the global press, the public eye has seldom been stolen from the iconic Swede powerhouse behind some of global Dance music’s most beloved offerings. Rumoured to be an original affiliate of the country’s illustrious House mafiosa, Eric Prydz has kept his discography ticking with a hit-after-hit under the well-endowed stronghold of his musical empire, consisting of monikers Pryda and Cirez D aswell as imprints Pryda and Mouseville. Of all the Swedish stars that could have come for Christmas, there was never a doubt that the return of Sweden’s modestly spoken House appendage. In an outing of well-received original cuts from his own well-stocked discography, there were few unmoved by the original Swedish master at last night’s proceedings. Still flawless in his transitions and greeted with a wave of fist pumping homeland followers, there was little indication of Prydz’s dynamic live appeal going anywhere fast in the nights festive proceedings. Drawing on favoured classics from Daft Punk an Faithless in the process, some special cuts from the night suggest that as one hell of a year for the globally acclaimed producer ends, the one approaching promises to be nothing short of magic for this well preserved legend of European Dance music.
As another of Sweden’s young leaders that once basked in the country’s misconstrued Techno scene, Henrik B is a different breed in European Dance music’s à la mode forces. Strongly tipped by Axwell and boasting support from the likes of Tiësto and Mr. Prydz himself, his well-pitched offensive of the globes supreme outlets of Electronic music has gained him a reputation as one of Swedish Dance music’s most hotly tipped producers to date. Unhindered by the slightly thinning crowds, it was the crowds glowing reactions to renowned singalong moments of ‘Levels’ and Adrian Lux’s ‘Teenage Crime’ that truly hit home the sheer dynamics of Henrik Berntsson’s mass appeal on the global clubbing circuit. Finishing proceedings with an actively charged outing of modern bangers, Berntsson preserved the crowds into the earlier hours of the morning with little effort and a whole surge of enthusiasm. Singing off an incredibly positive night of home grown Electronic music, this highly enthusiastic final set could not have better encapsulated the warm glow of pride and excitement that surrounds Swedish House music as its players prepare to bring even more positive noise for 2012.

After a two year residency in Stockholm, Eric Prydz, also known as Pryda, Cirez D and more, brings his annual Christmas tradition to the second biggest city of Sweden, Gothenburg, along with a string of noteworthy Swedish electronic dance music exports for a night that is looking to be his best Christmas show in Sweden to date.
Responsible for behemoths like Pjanoo, Niton, Melo and the recent 2Night amongst countless others, the now 35 year old Dj and producer is a mastermind in its natural grace. Representing integrity, brilliance and an admirable awareness of all things producing, the Stockholm-born powerhouse of a producer is a loyal and pioneering mercenary of electronic dance music and also, by many, even regarded as a living legend of his craft. Coming off his recent, third EPIC live show, which was attended by a crowd of 11 000 people, the acknowledgement of Prydz’ impressive live shows continues to grow as the projection of his third Christmas show is in full swing. Also hot off a signing with EMI, which has been making for assumptions regarding the fact that his debut artist album might not be too far away now, there is quite the buzz surrounding camp Prydz nowadays, just in time for him to sell out the vast halls of Svenska Mässan on Christmas Day.
Renowned for building his foundations with the assistance of his dexterous ability to create playful merges of fierce club sounds and his signature way of filtering and chopping up vocals, Johan Wedel is a prime example of the immense talent many young Swedish producers are in possession of. Since his game-changing remix to Lose Control came out in post-summer of 2010 has the club music scene witnessed Wedel’s productions score plays from the likes of Swedish House Mafia, Tiësto, David Guetta and more and pioneer a soon to be released collaboration with Fedde Le Grand and Deniz Koyu to consequently make up an avant-guard of aspiring producers across the globe.
Following on from a short but intense appearance on national television in early November, the sterling Refune Records representative Linus Eklöw, professionally known as Style Of Eye, is also making for a Christmas night in honour of the most outright of modern dance music sounds. His distinguished style and prestigious reputation has paved the way for numerous installments on the record label of Sebastian Ingrosso, most recently with the tremendous We Are Boys, and trademarks such as Antidote, Girls, Grounded, Sexx and more over the past few years.
With the remarkably timeless Teenage Crime remode alongside Axwell under his belt, Henrik Berntsson, better known as just Henrik B, is another prominent character amongst Sweden’s distinct House music export. Recognized by his eccentric productions and downright humorous personality, the Skövde-bred producer has become an intriguing act to follow make appearances on David Tort’s The Mansion label and Armada this year. Henrik B is also in possession of a wide pallette of aces up his sleeve, including a Dirty South-premiered collaborative effort with Niklas Gustavsson and an upcoming single release on Axwell’s Axtone Records.
Although he is merely just a freshman in terms of producing, 18 year old Franz Novotny is already showcasing a wealth of production proficiency. Signed with the down-under based Vicious Recordings, the very same label that secured Avicii as one in their artist roster a few years back, and seeing recurrent support from the likes of Kaskade, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike to name a few fall in favour of the diverse and dynamic style of his two Crunch and Big Bang singles, Novotny is an aspirant worthy of keeping a close watch upon.
