BRANDO AND KIESZA DROP INCREDIBLY HEARTENING VOCAL DUET: ‘OUT OF MY LEAGUE’!

By EDM Nations – September 28, 2021 114 0

Widely praised for their raw talent and authenic vocal sound, both artists have shaken up the industry with their distinct approach to music and now deliver an incredibly heartening collab where the sum is even greater than its parts: ‘Out Of My League’. “I had no idea Brando was going to be there as well and I also met the other producer, Avedon, for the first time that day. By pure luck, Kiesza – who is Cody’s good friend – was in town and wanted to stop by the session just to say hi. Even when you’re not taking into consideration the multiple smash hits between them, Brando and Kiesza are anything but your run-of-the-mill pair. They were in the early stages of working on the song and I ended up joining the session with them. Juggling the unique timbre of Armada Music star Brando with the honeyed vocals of Canadian artist Kiesza, this record is the soundtrack for anyone willing to take a chance in hopes of finding true love. “‘Out Of My League’ is one of my favorite records I’ve made so far”, Brando says. Avedon, Cody and myself really wanted to work on a tropical themed dance song that took us back to the days of not being in quarantine and the feeling of sitting on the beach in Belize sipping margaritas under the Caribbean sun. I think our fans are going to love it, so I can’t wait to hear their feedback.”

“‘Out of My League’ came about extremely organically when I stopped by the studio to visit my friend Cody”, Kiesza adds. ‘Out Of My League’ has got to be one of the most delightful vocal duets of recent times. But instead of that, she hopped on the record, wrote a second verse and added a ukulele, miraculously making the whole record even better by turning it into this amazing duet. “It was created in such an organic way, and I feel like the tracks I make that way tend to be my best. By the end of the session it had become this amazing duet and I’m so excited it’s coming out!”

CAZZETTE are talking about their newest release and future plans ! EDM Nations Interview !

EDM Nations caught up with one half of the band, Alexander Björklund, now based out in California, to find out… 

Hi Alex, thanks for chatting to us today and congrats on the new single.  

It’s now 2021, and the world is a very different place. I am very grateful 

We can’t talk about successful Swedes without talking about ABBA, who of course are dropping a new album and will be performing ‘tours’ with their ABBA-tars. Is that going to be only for your own releases or will you be bringing other artists on board? Essentially the process took a while due to creating a lot of different versions of the original demo. I can do that too” although these days I don’t really listen to a lot of high energy EDM. I’m guessing Swedish climate invites one to spend a lot of time in the studio and once that joyous habit is established it’s hard to compete with all that invested time. 

For our readers who haven’t visited Sweden, what would be your top three things for us to do, and why?  

Nordic lights because there is nothing like it Stockholm for its architecture Even though it’s originally a Finnish tradition I highly recommend a Sauna and ice-bath during the winter. It feels amazing to have created an outlet for our own music as well as for anything we are currently loving. I find inspiration in other genres 

You shared the same management as Avicii – do you feel that he opened the doors for you to some extent? You think an espresso will wake you up? It has been incredibly rewarding and a beautiful way to re-discover music. We have been working hard for a long time and feel eager to share a lot of new music with everyone. 

Follow us on socials Once the vibe was right and the emotion of the music matched the vocals we initially recorded three years ago everything went rather quick and smooth. 

You worked with British singer Xander Rawlins on the single. (and it doesn’t have to be club-land related) 

Moving freely without being paranoid to either spread or catch any illness. We are, of course, still riding out the tail end of the Covid nightmare, and like so many other artists, CAZZETTE have found themselves grounded, unable to tour. Axwell, Ingrosso and Angello formed the inimitable Swedish House Mafia and under the Svengali-esque hand of Ash Pournouri came arguably electronic music’s biggest ever superstar, Avicii.  

Very exciting! Can you tell us how it came together, and also why it took three years for you to release it? 

Thanks for having me. It’s rare that I work on a song for this long. I’m really excited for the Fall and will kick off with a show in Vancouver 

How has Covid been for you? Switching studios always comes with a set of challenges like getting to know your speakers and understanding how to translate your work 

We imagine like every other artist out there, you’re excited to get back out there and DJ for us. What was it about his vocal that attracted you to work with him? 

We wrote and recorded the song together after meeting in Los Angeles. Have you used your time creatively or did you struggle with the whole situation? Xander has a great voice and talent for words which is why I wanted to do sessions with him. 

You guys have been pretty quiet since last year’s release ‘Get On Wiw It’ – was there a particular reason behind that? How exciting has it been to set it up? I’m not sure!  

I’m often in contact with my agent and management as I love touring and playing shows. From the same stable, and sporting eye-catching headgear, were the explosive duo CAZZETTE. Being young and seeing other Swedish acts succeed made me think “hey! I want to be out there as much as I can.    Finally do you have any more news you can share with us? My friends and family are all healthy and I’ve taken the time to study music, meditate and exercise  

What was the one thing you missed the most while all this has been happening?  

Absolutely. Around the turn of the last decade, a wave of incredible music began to come out of Northern Europe, more specifically Sweden. Have you got any tour news you can let us in on yet?  

Yeah absolutely. I recently relocated to Los Angeles and have been getting to know my new space and studio as well as learning a new audio workstation (after 15 years in the same program). How did they cope?  

I feel very blessed to say that Covid hasn’t been that much of a struggle to me. Covid for sure amped up a tad of germophobia  

You recently set up your own label, Magnetic Tape Records.   Expect a lot more Cazzette music!  

There are a few different theories floating around out there haha. Try this. It’s fun to see them get back together although I’m not particularly invested in their music 

What is in the water in Sweden that makes you guys all so good at music production?? Alongside their compatriots they took the world by storm, taking over main stages, festival arenas and the world’s biggest club venues. How influential were both those acts in your own musical career? 

In the early years, they played a huge role in terms of inspiration and motivation. What are your thoughts on that? 

I salute every touring or non-touring artist. We are always open to working with new people and listening to undiscovered music 

You were of course, part of the huge Swedish house invasion of the early 2010s, along with Avicii and SHM.

By EDM Nations – September 16, 2021 73 0

SALADIN newest release comes in the shape of a brilliant re-work for the classic “Boom Boom Boom” by The Outhere Brothers (one of my favorite all time dance classics) and he manages to revive the old school house vibes with a modern sound approach. Follow us on socials Check it out below and grab your free copy! Certainly produced with Ibiza in mind, the track is primed to feature predominantly throughout this early fall as the biggest months of electronic music rear their head. Garnering an immense catalog of house music productions to keep his crowds moving, SALADIN is notoriously known for leaving the audience in awe. Chicago-based electronic dance music producer SALADIN takes an electrifying stance each time he steps on stage. A heavy bass line and and infectious vocals give a definite nod of the head on the break part, until filthy bass drops and undulating percussive sections thrust the listener firmly back into the future. Overall this sounds like a solid production that i highly recommend, especially that it comes as a free download.
