When you listen to a Blende track, a few words come to mind - filthy, banging, dirty, violating. I like the way he makes the most outrageous sounds, and is so unassuming, calm and friendly - a stereotypical Scandi! Hailing from Sweden, Johan Klereby a.k.a Blende has established himself as a prolific remixer and producer of awesome bangers. With his huge remix of Seduction's 'Ironie' being the first track to perforate my ear drums - ive been keeping a close eye on his tracks. You can buy alot of his music at Juno - Also check his myspace here.
I managed to get my hands on an exclusive remix of Swedish Techno/house producer Adrian Lux's track Strawberry. The indie vocals twist niceley over crisp drum hits, growling guitar synths and a wonky rolling layer underneath the drums. Very tasty!
