309 – Adeline
Talented and original, we welcome Swedish electronic starlet Adeline to helm this weeks podcast. Having been brought up amongst idyllic Swedish countryside, Adeline swiftly made her way to more urbane climbs as she moved to Stockholm and then embraced the pioneering underground concept that the city’s club scene has to offer. She then quickly rose to prominence with the Swedish scene and soon found herself Scandinavia biggest electronic radio show P3 Dans as well as helping in the set up of the then newly formed SoundCloud.
Then arriving in London in 2010 via Milan, New York and Berlin Adeline continue to refine her own distinct sound characterized by hypnotizing chords and warbling basslines over slick melodies that tie together for tracks that stand out in even the strongest of sets. Gaining support from some of the scenes coolest names from Damien Lazarus to David August, releasing on some of the hottest labels in Kindisch and Cuprit and gaining rave reviews from performance across Europe for her performances the future looks very bright for Adeline. Delivering and eclectic and interesting set for us this week we think it’s a firm statement of intent for the summer to come! Enjoy.
Sum up this podcast in 10 words…Welcome to a rather hypnotic deep trip….
What’s your personal favourite track on it?Lots of favourites in here, but I think it would be Untitled by Different Gear or maybe this new track by Uner and Audiofly Nomorephilosophy. Or maybe Daniel Solar’s remix of Lightest Shades of Grey, it’s one of my classics. Hard pick!
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?There’s definitely hints of melodic basslines and oozing swooshes in this one. I think the best part is that it hits a particular mood all the way through, I like mixes that way. They shall tease you.
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?This last weekend I was in Paris, playing at Le Pigallion, and we all had a great time. It was really crazy that place, and the layout of the club made everyone come together in a union nicely. I finished my set off with jumping from a table and was a couple of millimeters from actually just falling straight off it. But I was so happy at the time so it felt more like an advanced circus trick.
What have you got coming up? Soon I’ve got two tracks coming out on two Get Physical compilations, and then I’m premiering a new radio show for Pulse Radio next week. I’m currently in a phase of experimenting lots in the studio, working on new material, and trying out new collaborations. The truth is I’ve never felt so free in my whole life as I do right now, so I’m super excited about what is to come this summer. New approaches, insights and inspiration to be found for sure – I can feel it in the air!
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?Yes live hard and let die… Rebirth is the key!
