Stockholm-based producer and songwriter Linus Eklöw, known in the dance music world as Style of Eye, has released a preview for new Ultra Records single “Kids” featuring Soso. Linus has had a busy year serving as a co-writer to Icona Pop’s smash hit “I Love It” as well as collaborating alongside Tom Staar in “After Dark,” proving himself as a talented force in all facets of music production. “Kids” fuses a gritty electro vibe with searing melodies, pounding drums and a pop-ish allure which perfectly captures the musicality of Swedish progressive house. The single will be released December 10th on iTunes and is available today on Spotify.Posted by
We’ve come to associate Tom Staar with both a rowdier sound and his partner in crime Kryder, but the Londoner’s next output is a more melodic offering alongside Stockholm’s Style of Eye. Featuring an unknown vocalist, “After Dark” is a torrent of big room synths. Beaming with its pervasive, somewhat-stereotypical melody, the true potential of “After Dark” rests in its glitches, wobbles, and bass mutterings. Does it live up to the caliber of both these aspiring artists? We’ll wait for the full release to make that call. Style of Eye and Tom Staar’s “After Dark” will be released on February 25th, on Afrojack’s Wall Recordings. Click past the break for the preview.
After a wildly successful remix contest and remix EP for Zedd’s ”Spectrum,” it seemed only natural that Clarity‘s eponymous single should receive the same treatment. While the remixes started back in November with Aylen’s lovestep rework, it was only last week that Zedd unveiled the sumptuous roster of producers for the official “Clarity” remix package.
With renditions from Tiësto, Style of Eye, Brillz, and an orchestral edit from Zedd himself, the “Clarity” remix package is just as daunting as its counterpart’s previous package. Curious to see whose stole the spotlight? Click past the break to read our review.

As if going head to head with Sensation USA on Saturday of Halloween weekend with All Mixed Up wasn’t enough, Pacha has added another show at Pier 94 to compete with night one of Brooklyn’s biggest white party on Friday, October 26th. The second show will have a bass-heavy lineup featuring Knife Party, Tommy Trash, Kill the Noise, Style of Eye, Baauer, and Destructo. Doors open at 10PM, so we assume that the party will be continuing until sunrise. Tickets go on sale this Thursday, September 13th, and we’ll update this post with purchase information when we have it. In the meantime, feel free to reconsider dropping close to $200 on Sensation tickets from Stubhub.

Swedish producer Style of Eye might have flown under some of your radars but we’ve had a close eye on him for sometime now. He has established a reputation as a top producer with his fantastic remixes, including those he did for Miike Snow’s “The Wave” and Rebecca & Fiona’s “If She Was Away.” He keeps up the good work with his latest production, a remix of Kylie Minogue’s “Timebomb.” Don’t let the gentle beginning fool you, an acid-esque drop that Nicky Romero would be proud of is just around the corner.

Sebastian Ingrosso brought his A-game to Roseland Ballroom over the weekend — and he brought a few of his friends too. Joined by Otto Knows, Style of Eye, and Carl Kennedy, the foursome of DJs was able to keep Roseland Ballroom sufficiently crowded until the early hours of the morning. There was a raised VIP area along the side with plush white couches, lots of lights and lasers, and an energetic crowd that couldn’t wait for the headliner to take the stage. The mood was set for a night of big music — and we were there for it all.
Linus Eklöw aka Style of Eye is one of the most uncommon yet remarkable producers amongst the Swedish league of talent.
