WhoMadeWho – Dynasty

WhoMadeWho

We love electronica being at the forefront of music, but we also love an amalgamation of genres. Cue WhoMadeWho, a Copenhagen-based trio comprised of Tomas Barfod, Jeppe Kjellberg and Tomas Høffding.

WhoMadeWho like to experiment sounds inbetween disco, funk, techno, indie rock and pop. They also like to tackle hot topics whilst they’re at it…including sex. It’s complicated, ever more so with dating apps like Tinder and Bumble, so why not listen to ‘Dynasty’, and turn that energy you spend on your phone into something good, like connecting with someone in real life? Good advice guys!

Sounds like: Hot Chip, Du Tonc

MATTIS

Copenhagen-based superstar in the making, MATTIS, shares his stunning debut, ‘Loverboy’.

This self confessed “viking soul” uses somewhat minimalistic production, relying heavily on his vocals (think James Blake or Sampha), but ‘Loverboy’ also tells an emotive story, driven from a dark place that MATTIS found himself in three years ago, having lost his apartment following a break up, and generally feeling like a lone wolf away from the pack.

KING – Blood

KING

KING

Denmark has a new pop star in the making, and she’s called KING.

Born in Copenhagen to a Cuban mother and a Chilean father, KING has had a bit of an unbringing, watching her uncle work as one of Fidel Castro’s personal bodyguards.

With her street smart dance style and accomplished vocals, we kindly ask Banks and Grimes to step aside for the KING.
