Swedish incrediblog No Modest Bear just came through with these fantastic remixes of Christian Niva’s most recent track Dirty Water , so in the case that you didn’t dance yourself to death with that one, here’s three more chances to get it right. Each artist does a little something different with the track; if you’re into spoilers here are the spots that you can learn more about Chicago duo Selva Oscura and Stockbrolmer Eric Cadillac (we’ve already done our fair share of covering the mysterious Slow Magic), or you can be spontaneous! And listen now! Below!
s/0 to NMB for this one. I hadn’t heard of Stockholm’s The Forest & The Trees until a few minutes ago, but they’re already reminding me of another The Cure-loving Stockholm band The Shout Out Louds. What We Lost is the most purely poppy song I’ve heard in a second with the little key jingle and smooth bassline to boot. If that’s not enough for you, city-cohabiter NIVA put his own skills to the track and mixed a little extra bliss and a lot extra dance into the batter. You can listen to them both below, and make sure to download the og.

The Forest & The Trees – What We Lost (NIVA remix)
Normally we wouldn’t post a track that doesn’t have a download tied to it but I’m too pumped on Niva‘s first new track since the Feverish Dreams EP. Dirty Water is like light shining through a prism made out of pop music and bass, and even though I routinely move to this Stockholmer’s tunes, this might be his catchiest and most danceable track yet. Listen to Dirty Water below and keep your fingers crossed for an mp3 release soon, you’ll want this one for your headphones.
I’m always stoked when Victor Ferreira comes through with a new Sun Glitters track, and this one has got me more hyped than usual. The bass churns powerfully, heartbeat style, and again his samples are spot on, joining with each other as seamlessly as the saturated frames in the eventide video created by Ferreira himself. Besides Sun Glitters’ own style, he gets some help on the vox from Stockholmers Niva & Charlee that take it into some other, parallel realm of awesomeness. It’s exactly what I wanted when I saw those three names all together on one track, head to his bandcamp to name your price for the mp3.
Niva is the music venture of Stockholm’s Christian Niva; chill-pop bliss-waver extraordinaire. I was shown the dreamy video (below) for The Boy From The Sun a few days ago, but it wasn’t until I caught the stand-alone magnificence of Ghost In My Head that I knew Niva had some serious chops. I’ve been hearing the word “forlorntronica” being thrown around a lot to describe this guy, but I don’t think I can buy into it. The music is too upbeat and bass-driven to be considered sad, and whose lyrics don’t border on forlorn every now and again? Check out the video and the track below, and stream the whole EP, released March 27th, right here. Although he’s got a bandcamp, you’re going to have to go through itunes if you want to get your ears on a mobile copy of Feverish Dreams.
Tits. Oh, and this TWOS remix, which is awesome. It’s always fun when seeing a remix of a song that was initially pretty awesome. No one really knows anything about TWOS basically, except that the FEEL EP released through Aural Sects kicked gluteus maximus. But yeah, no name, gender, area, none of that, just the music. Anyway, […]
I’m still doing my research on this dude Suicide Year, I guess I started knowing him when he produced for Wicca Phase Springs Eternal. I’ve been doing a little link digging though.. He’s just released his Japan project on cassette, you can get that at Anti Party Music. He’s got a project on the way […]
Been walking around campus listening to the first couple tracks on here. I’m kind of blown away. Readers of the sweats should already know Hemsworth is a favorite. He’s been absolutely killing the mix game. When I saw him at the Downtown NYC fest 2 weeks ago he dropped I Used To Get It In […]
The hood is really loving this one, 10k+ in just one day. Jonwayne showcasing his lyrical mastermind on this Pusha T/ Kanye produced joint. Click through to the soundcloud for the lyrics. Oh yeah, and, I read on Stones Throw that the Cassette series may be a trilogy? #fingerscrossed PS grab the recently released Daytime […]
