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.
