Festival (Skantze´s Malibu remix)

the final Festival remix comes from Erik Skantze... next week comes the first remix of Cry Baby:

The Norwegian producer Erik Skantze makes instant joy! He's inspired by disco, house, jazz, italo disco and afrobeat. 

The last few years he has been producing remixes for artists such as SkatebĂ„rd, Kakkmaddafakka and Art Department as well as djing regularly in Oslo and playing at festivals such has Slottsfestivalen(Kastellnatt). When he's not on the dancefloor/dj-booth dancing he's in the studio making fresh new tracks. 
This year he's been stuck in the studio finishing up some tracks soon to be released on Prins Thomas' label Full Pupp.

this is his first ever remix

a nice Festival review from Sounds XP

those kind chaps at SoundsXP have this to say about Festival:

 ‘Festival’ is shimmery, melodic, euphoric, Balearic electropop, of the sort usually cooked up in some expensive Swedish music has a clear pop quality that will take them far. 

thank you kind chaps at SoundsXP

Festival (Johan Hedberg remix)

the penultimate remix of Festival comes from Johan Hedberg:

Johan Hedberg is best known as one half of Swedish pop group Suburban Kids With Biblical Names. They wanted to “turn all the dance floors into a burning inferno of Ba-ba-ba”, to quote the Kids themselves. And with their debut single “Rent A Wreck”, they surely did. They sound as if they’ve been writing songs together since the beginning of time. Or perhaps more like children who’ve played together forever. 

In 2005 Labrador released their debut album simply called #3, which not only reached the charts in Sweden and got amazing reviews here - it was somewhat of a slowly growing worldwide success. The album was released in late 2006 in North America and in 2007 in the UK. In Sweden it was nominated for a “Grammis” year 2005 (a prestigious prize at the big award show “Grammisgalan” in Sweden).

Johan is currently recording his debut full length solo album, to be released in the autumn. A new single will be released in June, on Labrador, called Nacamasterna. During the last year Johan has remixed Acid House Kings, Making Marks and now Victoria and Jacob.
