‘Dark River’ – New From Sebastian Ingrosso, With Axwell Remode To Follow

Ingrosso 2

Following up from his massive single, ‘FLAGS!’, Swedish artist/producer and head of music label Refune, Sebastian Ingrosso is back with his new track, ‘Dark River’, released May 6.

‘Dark River’ starts with a gentle acoustic guitar and vocal, before quickly diving into a drop filled with warped synths, a pounding bassline, and catchy handclaps. It then reverts to the strumming acoustic guitar and vocals, this time infused with additional whistle effect synths.

With almost two decades in the electronic music world in both his native Sweden and across the world, Sebastian Ingrosso is renowned for his discography of versatile solo work, as well as high calibre collaborations. He’s responsible for some of the biggest tracks in electronic music to date, such as ‘Calling (Lose My Mind)’, featuring Alesso; ‘Reload’, featuring Tommy Trash and John Martin, and his most recent release, ‘FLAGS!’, which features up and coming talents, LIOHN, and Salvatore.

Fellow Swedish DJ Axwell, with whom Ingrosso teamed up in 2014 to form Axwell/\Ingrosso, follows on with his take on Sebastian’s original, releasing ‘Dark River (Axwell Remode)’, out on May 20. Axwell has given the song a double shot of house, and created a brand new version of the track, with added reverb and chopped up vocals from the original, as well as a rippling bassline and club-facing beats.

Ingrosso established his imprint, Refune, way back in 2003, and since that time has regularly released top quality records, keeping a steady hand on the evolving sound of the modern dance floor, both as an artist and as a record label head. He’s been responsible for discovering new talent such as Alesso, and Salvatore, and is additionally known for his remixing talents, having reworked tracks for the likes of Robyn, Justin Timberlake, and Mike Snow, among many others.
