It’s been years since Adrian Lux dropped his hit single Teenage Crime. A bevy of fine remixes cropped up in its wake, too. Swedish multi-instrumentalist and producer STRØM brings back our love for the song with a superb cover that injects the song with a fresh sense of sultry dark intrigue. The sooty splendor of this murky, dusky Teenage Crime is rather deliciously Zhu-like, with some of the curling funk guitars of Ben Khan. STRØM’s electrifying cover seems to befit a mysterious tryst, or a secret rendezvous of some sort. You can also stream the track via Spotify, here. Re-visit some of the artist’s prior originals on Soundcloud, here, including previously featured releases Shay-Ling and Mesmerize.

Swedish producer and multi-instrumentalist STRØM truly “mesmerized” us with his first single half a year ago. Mesmerize went on to lock in a number one on Hype Machine after impressing tastemakers all around. The single even went on to soundtrack a BMW commercial. He’s back to show us the song was no one-off anomaly with his long awaited second single, Shay-Ling, a bass warbling, guitar curling slice of dark moody, sultry broiling electropop and funk. With an ominous and suspenseful atmosphere, Shay-Ling entices our ears and threads its way into our hearts. STRØM‘s buttery falsettos seduce with a feathery light touch, but the imprint they leave behind marks us as fans for life. There’s no escaping the draw of this slick futuristic pop piece when you combine that with  Shay-Ling’s vivacious 808 kicks and its Jai Paul like opulent groove. Re-visit Mesmerize on Soundcloud, here.

No better name could have been given to this next one, a song from a Swedish producer and multi-instrumentalist who goes by the moniker STRØM. Mesmerize draws us in with deep palpitating beats, its funk tinged electronic pop bringing to mind music by the likes of Jai Paul and Ben Khan. STRØM’s silky falsettos add another layer of dimension to the debut. The 27 year old newcomer explains that he likes to break away from musical structures to form a kind of hybrid genre with no rules or fixed directions. He’s truly is influenced by Jai Paul, as well as Daniel Lanois, D’Angelo, and DIIV. Mesmerize is a “darkly-shaded track about obsession and fictional desire”. The track was used in a BMW commercial featuring pro Swedish surfer Freddie Meadows called BMW By Night. Watch the commercial, here

The Chainsmokers puts out a boundless amount of electronic hits. The sheer volume of their star studded tracks is much apparent in the fact that we’re constantly flooded with remixes of their various tunes. The Chainsmokers latest single with Halsey, Closer, gets an uplifting and exhilarating remix that takes us all across Europe. Germany’s SAXITY links up with Norway’s SJUR to give us a horn toting deep house edit that features new vocals by Norwegian singer songwriter Strøm. The resulting edit is as heart warming of an infectious remix we’ve heard of Closer yet. The lithe pumping, blithe glowing remix is a free download, here.
