Swedish native Jakob Liedholm has been catching the ears of listeners around the world with his progressive house anthems. Dancing Astronaut first took note of the teenage producer when he was on the rise with his original production “Never Again” alongside Steerner and now a little over a year later, the young progressive phenom has reached 10,000 Facebook fans. In celebration of the momentous occasion, Liedholm gifted fans with a remix collaboration with fellow Swede Tim Norell on Parker Ighale’s track “So Beautiful.” Like many of Liedholm’s previous productions this remix begins with a sprawling piano chord-driven intro before moving into a synth-heavy big-room beat. The “Beautiful” remix is another pounding production from the rising star, proving Jakob Liedholm is one to watch in 2013.

Ever since we heard his remix of “Toes,” Jakob Liedholm has been on our radar as one of the top young producers to watch. He has just recently joined forces with fellow progressive young gun, Vince Kriss, to bring us “Trumpie” – a pounding progressive house track with big room chord progressions and some electro and dub elements interspersed throughout. Give the track a listen and be sure to explore the countless other tracks on his Soundcloud that this young producer has put out in the last year.
Up until now we thought we’d heard more than enough “Set Fire To The Rain” samples but Jakob Liedholm has caused us to rethink our position. He recently revealed his Set Fire edit of Tommy Trash and Sebastian Ingrosso’s “ID” collaboration and we’re impressed. The arena-sized anthem is on par with his euphoric “Somebody I Used To Know” remix, which was one of the better versions of Goyte’s overly-remixed track. This 15-year-old Swede is making it clear that even the most over-played tunes — when done right — can be given new life. Like Madeon and Lenno, Leidholm is another young producer to watch out for.
While it might seem like there are a thousand young Swedish phenoms out there putting out incredible stuff at the moment, Jakob Liedholm is one you should be paying attention to. If you liked his great remix of the Knocks as well as his collaboration with Steerner, then definitely check this remix out. Jakob continues to dominate with the classic Swedish progressive anthemic sound ala Alesso, Steve and Tim. Hard to believe the guy is only 15!
Gotye – Somebody I Used To Know (Jakob Liedholm Remix)
The other day we brought you the latest track from Swedish wunderkind Jakob Liedholm, his collaboration with Steerner “Never Again.” Today we have his take on The Knocks’ track “The Prize.” Jakob absolutely crushes the classic synthy piano progressive sound and changes The Knocks’ usually chill vibe into an anthemic house tune. As we said the other day, we predict bright things for this 15 year old producer, and it’s quite frankly a little scary that he’s barely into the double digits.. No word on the official release date of this one, however, so for now just enjoy it on SoundCloud.

Following in the footsteps of his compatriots Avicii & Alesso, Jakob is fast making a name for himself with his progressive anthems. His latest effort “Never Again,” a collaboration with Steerner, combines the classic Swedish progressive sound with some elements of electro and dubsteppy breakdowns. This guy is definitely one for the future. Lookout for a major breakthrough in the next year or two.
