In recent years there have been few rising stars who have be as insistent on confounding expectations of certain sounds and got us as excited as Local Talk and Studio Barnhaus signed producer HNNY. The young man from Stockholm has oozed Scandinavian cool ever since he first grabbed our attention back in 2011 when he successfully managed to take on a house edit of the incredibly cheesy Mariah Carey power ballad ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’ and not only made it sonically palatable to our discerning ears but actually enjoyable. Yes by boldly introducing sinster edged bass notes and slowing the tempo down to 80bpm amongst sporadically sharp synth stabs he certainly announced his arrival in gung ho fashion.
HNNY then continued his alternative charm offensive on us with a slew of other quality if trademarkedly unpredictable releases including a remix of maverick contemporary composer Steve Reich when he reworked ‘Nagoya Marimba’ into a malevolent bass driven roller despite Reich’s upbeat marimba melodies. Yes, we’ve learned to expect the unexpected when it comes to the young Swede and that’s why today we’ve decided to unleash on you a new exclusive mix from HNNY ahead of his performance for Reviveher alongside Stefan Goldman In London this Saturday. So with that in mind let HNNY take you on a musical journey ranging from classic house sounds to garage with the odd surprise thrown in for good measure. Check it out below.
