Qulinez are having the time of their lives. Childhood pals Alexander Lager and Johannes Gustafsson were discovered by Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello, who picked up his fellow Swedes for his label Size Records. Now, Qulinez have linked up with another big name name in electronic music – Steve Aoki and his label, Dim Mak – for their single “Drop It,” and they’re serving up a relentlessly intense mix around their new track. Sounds from the Bloody Beetroots, Carnage and Borgore, and Marin Solveig fly by, but the focus remains on “Drop It” and its interplay with a little bit of Daft Punk. (via Rolling Stone)
In 2011, they began producing tracks for a project called “Qulinez”, and sent a demo straight to Steve Angello at Size Records, who took an immediate and avid interest in the talented young producers. In their release “Troll,” the Swedish duo mix a contagious melodious build up into a typical Swedish House rhythm followed by a dirty Dutch bass drop.
Played by Alesso, Cazzette, Hardwell, Tiesto, David Guetta, Sander van Doorn, Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello, Axwell and the whole Swedish House Mafia following their monumental show at Madison Square Garden. Johannes, 26, and Alex, 24, who both grew up playing piano, drums, and piano use their knowledge and passion to create a infectious diversity of sounds in their tracks.
Currently, the two Swedes have four unreleased, original productions under their belt, and continue to create tracks, remixes, and edits using FL Studio in their modest, in-house studio.
Their highly anticipated track, “Troll” has garnered much attention, not only from Steve Angello, himself, but from electronic fans all over the world. Named 2012 Breakout Stars of 2012 by Beat My Day, Alex and Johannes, who describe their music as Electro House, are destined and equipped to tear up festivals and dance floors in 2012 with their colossal energy and distinguished sounds.
