Dreams do come true! Acid på svenska EP is soon to be released on WMWL label!
Presale in Stockholm at:
Pre-sale in Malmö at:
In 1964 Jan Johansson, the legendary Swedish Jazz Composer, made an equally legendary recording of some of the most famous Swedish folksongs, titled Jazz på Svenska.
This record has become stuff of legend and myth, and influenced many musicians and is found in almost every Swedish home, but also gained international acclaim.
In 2015, almost 50 years after Jazz på Svenska, the Swedish producer Christian Lappalainen, aka Calico, made an acid remix of all these classical folksongs, with a new twist. Keeping the original melodies and harmonies intact, he has infused them in a 303 acid bath, and the result are simply amazing.
Having released on Svek, G Force and other labels, Christian aka Calico has made this project his dreamchild and WMWL is honoured to be chosen to publish this magnificient piece of electronic and jazzy saga.
A bridge between electronic music and jazz, between classical school and acid house, this record represents the finest of Swedish song there is to be hand. Only a limited version of this release will be available on vinyl, but it will be released as a digital one too, with some bonus tracks not on the vinyl.

Roy Davis Jr returns with his latest remix of Rudimental’s track “Free feat Emeli Sande.” The original track is the last song off the British quartet’s debut album Home which peaked at #1 on the UK charts earlier this year. The remix features a roaming bassline which flows well with the driving grooves while dreamy synths sit below the changing keyboard shapes. Emeli Sande’s vocals provide a throwback to the soul of the 90s and the layered repetition of the chorus lines make the track irresistible to dance to. This is one of many remixes of the album which was received to great critical acclaim around the electronic music world. Check out the track below via the group’s SoundCloud.Posted in Featured, News | Tagged Emeli Sande, Free, remix, Roy Davis Jr, Rudimental | Leave a comment
DJ Pierre takes no time getting to the beat in his latest remix of Dosem’s “Atica.” Part of a compilation release of remixes of the Spanish producer’s track which he dropped as recently as this past summer, DJ Pierre’s take uses the oceanic samples from the original to help build into his unique shifting bassline. Focusing on the rhythmic elements of Dosem’s early track, Pierre does away with the theatrics and instead gets right to the subtle layering which gives him such an unparalleled sound.

Some 100 years ago, Sweden was a miserable dark and damp habitat. August Strindberg captured the soul of the country, Ingmar Bergman psyched it, and Lena Nyman sexed it up. Nowadays, we add nostalgia about the Swedish Model to that mix.
This record is a story about the Sweden you might not know, in which you need a special permit….to dance. And might well end up in jail for organizing a party, or simply dancing in the streets, by the lake or in the woods. In one shape or another, we have been at the epicenter of Swedish underground dance culture and it’s relentless fight for survival for more than a decade. DJing, producing, and organizing parties and festivals from the southern tip of Scania, to the remote mountains of Lapland.
On Folkets Hus (Swedish for “People’s House”) we gather four of Sweden’s most forward thinking and talented artists. They represent varied styles and motions, ages and characters. But all unite in having what we feel is the sound of the woods and the lakes in Sweden.This release is further dedicated to all of those who have inspired us and kept us going on all those dark, cold & damp years.

Magnus Carlson and Mikael Nordgren performs three songs from the new album, live on Swedish national TV4‘s morning show. In their clever, seemingly effortless manner, they give the viewers ‘Victoria’, first single from the new album that has rapidly become a favorite, remixed by Sonic Boom, and Jesper Dahlbäck as well as Jon Dasilva. Together with the tracks ‘Never Letting Go’ and ‘Leaving With Me’ this is an excellent taster of what lies ahead for Tandem Sky with album launch and tour.
Magnus’s voice has the ability to take the listener on a journey, and with Mikaels well-produced beats, Tandem Sky delivers brilliantly well-produced tracks. But who would have expected anything less than perfection from these two gentlemen?
The full album is now released on Warner Music, followed immediately by top reviews:
