saturday nite with… OLIVER NELSON

Oliver Nelson

Born and raised in Stockholm, Oliver Nelson started playing drums when he was eight years old and began producing electronic music at the age of seventeen. Over the next 3 years he worked relentlessly until he finally released his first official remix for Yelle, followed by other productions that quickly boosted his reputation.


Now aged 23, Oliver Nelson has managed to craft his own unique sounding, perfectly blending funk, disco, electro and house and he has produced remixes for A-list artists such as MNDR, Passion Pit, Ariana & The Rose, Urban Cone, Tomas Barfod, Tobtok or Tove Lo.

saturday nite with… TOMAS BARFOD

Tomas Barfod

Based in Copenhagen, Tomas Barfod released his debut solo album Salton Sea back in 2012, after about ten years of musical experience as part of WhoMadeWho and four albums as Filur, an electro duo he started with his old friend Kasper Bjørke . His solo success paved the way for his sophomore album, Love Me, which features a string and brass section and musicians like Here We Go Magic’s Luke Temple and long-term collaborator Nina K on vocal duties.


While still keeping his debut’s intimate delicacy and beautiful sense of fragility, this follow-up is also more audacious. From the start Barfod was acutely aware that in order for these songs to come to life they needed to have vocals, even if piecing it all together was like finishing a puzzle. Love Me is many-textured, endlessly rewarding, an organic-sounding electronic album utilising real heart and soul.

Here is a gorgeous remix of single “Busy Baby” by Oliver Nelson.

MNDR – FEED ME DIAMONDS (SynthPop – US)

MNDR

MNDR, aka Amanda Warner and Peter Wade, first teamed up in 2008 after discovering a mutual love of experimental pop music. Their debut album, Feed Me Diamonds, is the result of their tireless efforts to translate raw emotions into music that grooves without excess glitter. The title track is a throbbing passionate song, which Warner says is directly influenced by performance artist Marina Abramovic.

The single comes with remixes by Gutter Brothers, Safety Scissors, Killgore, Oliver NelsonRAC and many more…

If you like what you hear, you should probably check out MNDR’s previous singles “#1 in Heaven” and “Cut me Out”. As a bonus, here is a remix the pair recently produced for queer punk art band Ssion.
