JUNE 4, 2013 NYC

Swedish wonderkid Jakob Liedhlom is fast becoming the go to person for huge progressive house remixes so it should come as no surprise that the 16 year old DJ and producer was entrusted to rework Fenech-Soler’s track ‘Magnetic’, out July 1st via Warner Brothers Records.

First premiered on Danny Howard’s Radio 1 show on Saturday, May 25th, Jakob’s remix encapsulates the heart of the original whilst layering a piano led melody against Ben Duffy’s vocals to create a progressive tune nothing short of anthemic.

Jakob Liedholm first exploded onto the scene back in 2012. Last year saw the prodigy, who counts luminaries Tiesto and Nicky Romero amongst his army of supporters, lend his hand to remixes for Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ and Fun’s ‘Some Nights’, exemplifying his ability to seamlessly encompass both popular/indie and dance music alike. Both his original ‘Swede Love’ and remix of Nause’s ‘Hungry Hearts’ saw their debut on Pete Tong’s Radio One show to rapturous response from talent and tastemakers alike. Featuring a heavily rock influenced title track and a second more playful big room production with ‘The Ocean’ Liedholm’s 2013 EP ‘Eli’ further demonstrated a musical maturity and versatility that has seen him raise the bar with his own unique blend of progressive house. With several new tracks under his belt for 2013 and an explosive set in store for this year’s Summerburst Festvial, Jakob Liedholm is ready to take the world by storm.

The young sensation will make his debut performance at the main stage of Sweden’s biggest electronic music event – Summerburst Festival. Hosted across two weekends in June, Jakob will be joining an incredible roster of talent as he takes to the main stage in both Stockholm and Gothenburg joining of Axwell and many more. This is only just the beginning for Jakob Liedholm.
