As their massive tour alongside the Bingo Players and MAKJ comes to a close, the Bassjackers take on Adrian Lux and Marcus Schossow’s “Wild Child.” The duo amps up the Swede’s progressions and leaves JJ’s vocals front and center, all while replacing the melodic climax with an onslaught of electro. With ”Gamer“ on Doorn Records and “Zing“ on Protocol Recordings both making their mark over the past few months, the Bassjackers have laid the groundwork for bigger and better next year.
Swedish producer Adrian Lux has been riding the whirlwind of 2013 with style. To name a few triumphs, the 27-year old producer spent the summer on his Damaged Tour, released his collaborative single “Wild Child” with phenomenal success, performed as a major highlight on multiple festival stages including Coachella and EDC Las Vegas and is about to wrap up an Australian tour. Lux plans to hit the ground running as he returns to North American soil with his freshly announced Wild Child Tour that begins on the 29th of November in Miami until the last remaining days of 2013. Head here for tickets, dates, and future announcements for the tour.
In celebration of his tour announcement, Lux has also released the exclusive first listen to the official Bassjackers remix of his title hit, “Wild Child.” The synth-stabs drive Lux’s signature smooth progressive house sound to a new level of intensity. The remix is festival-primed with a throttling mix of bass and vocal overlay, truly embodying the message of “Wild Child.” The track will be available November 15th on Beatport.
In mid September, Marcus Schossow and Adrian Lux released their collaboration “Wild Child” on Ultra Records, riding a fine line between Lux’s smooth melodic style and Schossow’s gritty electro. Using JJ’s dreamy vocals to frame the track with an undeniable Swede-pop bounce, the pair’s first collaboration was an instant success. In the above video, Schossow tells the story behind the track, from their first introduction in NY to the inspiration behind the name and the track.
Adrian Lux’s single with Marcus Schossow “Wild Child” gets a short video accompaniment from his recent show in New York. With its clean guitar riffs and soaring vocals, the tune showcases the familiar beautiful anthemic themes of the talented Swedes. In the video, a packed house of dancing animals dominates the imagery, fitting considering the name of the song. Capturing the essence of electronic music, the clip prepares any fan for the weekend ahead.
In collaboration with Marcus Schossow featuring JJ on vocals, Adrian Lux has released his latest project entitled “Wild Child.” Riding on that smooth, melodic whim Adrian is known for in songs such as “Teenage Crime” and “Damaged,” the track wraps JJ’s dreamy vocals around guitar riffs and Swedish pop bounce. As a precursor to Adrian’s album due on Ultra Records next Spring, “Wild Child” proves the sheer amount of musicality this Swede holds. Available exclusively today on Beatport, the single will be released through other platforms on September 31st.
When two Swedes join forces, the electronic world listens, especially when both of those Swedes are already on a hot streak. Recent collaboration “Wild Child” showcases the best of an Adrian Lux riding high off the success of rock-edged “Damaged” and the sharpened chops of a Marcus Schossow celebrating a summer of hits. The forthcoming Ultra Records release kicks of with an edited strummed guitar backing the vocals of JJ before a bouncy synth melody takes over and swings things officially into progressive territory. Poised to gain serious airplay during fall touring season, the track will be released on Beatport on September 16th.
After rising to internet prominence when his aptly named “Virus” video garnered more than 5 million views, Australian producer M4SONIC is back with an official remix release for Adrian Lux on Ultra Records. M4SONIC has upped the ante on the music video for “Damaged,” using four Novation Launchpad controllers to trigger the loops and samples that comprise his electro house rework of the vocal-driven track. While two of the Launchpad appear to serve merely display purposes, the effort is impressive nonetheless.
Adrian Lux’s latest melodic masterpiece “Damaged” receives its official music video. Ditching the usual ‘boy chases girl through alleyways and clubs’ story arc of most dance music videos, Lux showcases some truly talented skateboarders in his most celluloid adaptation. We never thought we’d hear melodic progressive house used as a soundtrack to skating, but we can’t argue that it works wonderfully here.
Marcus Schossow has been on a roll lately with tracks like “Reverie” and “Liceu” quickly racking up buzz and turning heads. To add to the impressive list, Schossow has taken on Adrian Lux’ “Damaged” as an official remix under Ultra Records, already garnering support from Axwell, Thomas Gold and Nervo. The sound is reminiscent of Axwell’s “Center of the Universe”, even striking powerful cords similar to ubiquitous classic “Teenage Crime.” With this mix and a promise of further releases coming shortly, Marcus could very well be the next Swedish producer to take the throne. Available on Beatport July 19th.
In another bouncy take of Scandipop charm, Adrian Lux, the man who will always be known to the masses as the creator of “Teenage Crime,” released “Damaged” as the lead single off his next album. Featuring the wispy vocals of Alva Tång of the Swedish indie band Allvaret, Adrian adds a soft melodic riff with a smooth guitar progression and pop-like overtones creating the perfect amount of hype for his new album.
