Ive just released my brand new single "Todo El Mundo (Dancing in the streets)" which is the launch rocket of my new sound. Im moving more and more towards a sound that is of Latin origin. Ive come to realize that Im much happier and feel energized by the music that I was brought up to. The hispanic side of me showed to be far more bigger that I thought, and I also found out in the studio aka the Laboratory, that mixing my swedish-pop sound with some latin flavours turned out to be a great combo!! I really hope you guys like it, cos I LOVE IT :)
I had Mattias Andreasson over here for a week to write and produce some tracks. We had loads of fun and wrote a bunch of songs together. We had a day for shopping, we had to find something nice for his beautiful daughter Estelle, and since I'm the godfather to Estelle I took the task seriously :) We found a nice Rapunzel Doll for her at a Disney store, yaay! Mattias found a super nice gift to his girlfriend too. But I won't tell you what it was :p
Had a fun night out with Carl Falk - the man behind OneDirection and Starships for Nicki Minaj to name a few… great person and friend!
Now we're working on a video treatment for Todo El Mundo. Just gonna have loads of fun, if your in town, feel free to join ;) Ill keep you updated. LOADS OF LOVE.
I've been chillin in Miami and been enjoying life and having a blast.
I've had a couple of good meetings as well.
Suns been shining and I've worked some on my tan ;)
I was at the Ultra Music Festival and hung out with the Swedish House Mafia.
Must say that you feel proud to be a Swede when you're down here and the SHM is killin it mad, and 60K people are singing along to songs like "Don´t you worry child" and "Save the world tonight", that my homie Michel Zitron (who wrote "If only you" for me by the way) wrote for the shm.
The after party was crazy and soooo fun.
Dj Tim from Sweden played old school tracks and kept the floor hot.
The entire DJ-elite was there:
David Guetta, Laidback Luke, Dirty South, The legend Pete Tong, Thomas Gold, Alesso and of course the kings of the party Swedish House Mafia.
Axwell held a touching speech where he told us how it all began and thanked all the people they'd come across during this journey.
He said something that made me remember why I love my job.
He talked about all the million people around the world who've seen them and been singing to their songs and that their songs actually mean something to people.
It made me think about my fans, but of course in a much smaller scale but still as important. I'm so honored to know that my music means something to you guys and that you love to sing along to my songs that I've composed down in my studio.
Thank you for letting me do what I love the most!
I know I promised that I'd give you a tease of my next single. You'll get it, but not today :)
This is me when just arriving to LA to continue my journey and writing awesome tracks. pom pom pom...
