  • Grammy nominated Scandinavian sensation return with anthemic new single


    Adam Madd
    • Category: News

    Scandinavian sensation Tungevaag & Raaban return with an anthemic new single on Warner, released 26th October. Titled Hey Baby, the single sees the pair show off their peerless ability to create chart-topping hits. Bubbling with an infectious groove and feel good vibe, Hey Baby is poised to find its way into the hearts of fans around the globe.

     

    The Tungevaag & Raaban project arose from two Scandinavian producers whose respective music had already been causing waves throughout the industry. Norwegian Tunevaag, otherwise known as Martin Tungevag, rose to international fame with Wicked Wonderland which landed in the top 10 charts in 7 countries, picking up the #1 spot in Austria while racking up over 100 million streams in the process. Raaban, real name Robbin Soderlund and from Sweden, is equally as accomplished having worked on countless chart-topping projects including singer Yuka Masaki and Swedish house duo Stockholm Syndrome. 

     

    Tungevaag & Raaban’s debut single, Samsara, started life as a student party track in Norway but quickly rocketed to the top with millions of global streams and an eventual Grammy Nomination. Ever since, the duo has been touring the globe, bringing their hands-in-the-air dance sound to Europe, SE Asia, and Japan. Tungevaag & Raaban have had a string of highly successful single releases such as Russian Roulette, Beast, and Wolf which climbed to top 10 positions all over Scandinavia. Add to this the success of recent singles All For Love which landed in the top 10 in Scandinavia with 50 Million Spotify streams and Bad Boy which blew up in China as well and it is only a matter of time before Tungevaag & Raaban become staple names on the international dance music scene. 

     

    With big melodies, infectious hooks and ecstatic vocals that are impossible not to sing along and dance to, Hey Baby is bound to be Tungevaag & Raaban’s biggest single yet.

      One of the Pioneers of the dance music world: Sister Bliss from Faithless, will be touching down in Sydney this December for the first time in 10 years. Currently playing in some of the world’s hottest clubs, Sister Bliss will excite her Aussie fans with an exclusive Faithless DJ set, but she's taken time out of her busy tour planning to chat with Ozclubbers' @GALLEON and @Adam Madd.
       
       
      You’ve been around music since you were 5, but what first drew you into the electronic music scene and what inspired you to start DJing?
      I think the otherworldly sounds of synthesisers and drum machines grabbed me in the 80's, and that morphed into what became acid house. 
      The whole scene inspired me - I was collecting records, listening to pirate radio, going to warehouse parties and clubs, and couldn't get enough of this incredible new sound. 
      I used to make mixtapes with my friend - all my 12's on one side, and all hers on the other -so I guess the natural progression was to start DJing. 
       
       
      What can we expect from your sets in Australia this year? Will you be getting out some of the classics, focusing on new content or both?
      I'll be playing a mixture of pretty upfront music as well as some of the classics, and special edits of Faithless material - I have a weekly global radio show " Sister Bliss in Session " - and that really keeps me on top of new releases - I like to look forward musically, as there is so much great music out there, as well as bringing the crowd pleasers! 
       
       
      You’ve been referred to as the “musical engine” of Faithless.  What can you tell us about the process you go through when creating new tracks?
      Its never just one process - for me it could be anything from playing around with a chord sequence, to a melody, or vocal, to how the drums inspire me… every day is different - but I can't write without a good bass sound! Once the rough ideas are down, then its always a process of refining it, maybe working with a vocalist if it feels like it needs a vocal, sometimes playing with it for months! - and then eventually road testing it in my DJ sets. 
       
       
      What's happening on the production front for you currently?
      We are working on a new Faithless album due to be released in 2019 so thats keeping  me busy!
       
       
      How do you feel becoming a mother affected your music career?
      I think its mainly affected the amount of touring I've been able to do - I've been very lucky in that my son was able to travel with me on some DJ tours and with Faithless until he started school. Now, I've had to be more selective about when I can tour  - if they are longer and don't work with school holidays it can be a logistic nightmare with childcare! 
      i have to be very organised with my time which can be tough- for example having spent years in studios until 4am - which is sometimes when the creative juices flow - is just not feasible now. 
      I think working mothers have a tough gig - especially when you're self employed - if you don't work there is no safety net whatsoever. 
      I don't think people realise that within dance music or DJing as a career, there is no maternity pay, no sick pay, no pension - it can be pretty precarious, especially for those just starting out. 
       
       
      If you had the power to change one thing in the electronic music scene, what would that be and why?
      I think awareness of the things I mentioned above is important - and recently there has been a bit more of a discussion around mental health which is helpful. 
      This scene has become a way of life for so many people - and as an industry happens to generate a huge amount of money globally - so respect and support is needed for those in our industry - not just the superstar DJ's and artists but all those who make their job possible. 
       
       
      What would be your most memorable gig to date?
      I've been very lucky to have had so many memorable gigs - most recently playing a festival in Sarajevo was very emotional for me - I'd never played there before - but before the show I was speaking to people about their experiences during the war when they were under siege - which was very powerful and humbling. 
      There were also bullet holes in many buildings - a stark reminder of the snipers that lined the streets so recently -I dont think we can't begin to imagine how terrifying it was being shot at on a daily basis, and how normal life was just impossible. 
      Its very rare I tear up during a DJ set - but the lyrics - especially of the Faithless music I played that night felt extra resonant - and extra urgent as many parts of the world seem to be plunging into a very hateful place!  
       
       
      What are your current top 3 records right now?
      Like most of the world top Oz boy Fisher's "Losing It" is a dance floor weapon,  The Chemical Borthers are back on form with " Free Yourself" and a lovely sunrise number called "Together" from R&D 
       
       
      Are there any artists that you would recommend our readers check out?
      Really liking Circle Sky, also a rapper called Gaika, and on the pop side loving Christine & the Queens. 
       
       
      Lastly, can you tell us some interesting or unusual story from your (over) 20 years of touring?  (Our readers are pretty open minded, so no need to hold back)
      There are plenty I could tell you but what goes on tour, stays on tour!

      Following on from epic originals and impeccable remixes earlier this year, you’d think Benson had already reached the pinnacle of 2018. Yet as we move into the latter part, his next release featuring Stace Cadet and Yeah Boy continues to see Benson rise above the ranks. Releasing on his own esteemed Medium Rare label, check out heavenly collaboration – Faith. 
       
      Glorious chords and an impelling vocal graces the track with ethereal touches whilst the euphoric bass line ascends this psalm into clubbers paradise, making Faith a moving piece of house music fortified with saintly credibility. A club ready anthem as well as a peak time track, Benson is set to reach listeners of biblical proportion. 
       
      Having already had an exceptional year, Benson’s career continues to skyrocket. The Australian producer has accumulated millions of streams with the likes of originals including Hold Out and a remix of Stace Cadet’s High. Not stopping there, Benson is also dominating our airwaves with national airplay whilst securing an in demand residency slot with triple J. Gig-wise, Benson impressively launched a sold-out headline tour, clearly demonstrating himself as an artist of prominence we can’t wait to see where Benson takes us next on his musical journey. 
       
      Benson – Faith ft. Stace Cadet and Yeah Boy is out now via Medium Rare Recordings.
