Julie Bergan – Arigato (Original Mix)
Norway’s contributions to the electronic crossover world haven’t always got the same attention as their peers in Sweden, but 2016 has already cast a light on several fine talents pushing the envelope on electronic dance music’s pop prospects. For Julie Bergan, a more recent signee of Warner Music who racked prior collaborative duties with Astrid S, the summer spelt a moment of clarity for the Norwegian songstress and her beat-savvy legwork.
‘Arigato’ is an urban pop offering laced in dialled back trap licks and some of the more familiar sounds associated with future based and the Flume generation of producers. Bergan’s catchy vocal work stands out from a mile, giving us one of the most seamless electronic pop moments of 2016 from an artist that is sure to be in high demand off the heels of this marker single.
