LIOHN – Blue Pt.1
Swedish newcomer and Diplo approved producer LIOHN burst onto the radar with high profile remixes for both Galantis and Major Lazer. Having since made with a viral bootleg of Kanye’s own ‘I Love Kanye,’ the world has patiently awaited signs of original material from the 19-year-old studio whizz. With his debut mixtape promised for the first quarter of 2017, ‘Blue Pt.1’ is a solid introduction to LIOHN’s budding solo prowess. Cut from the future R&B cloth and fusing razor sharp hooks with bouncy instrumental swagger, his debut single sets a coherent middle ground between the urban pop and contemporary electronic landscape. From seemingly out of nowhere, LIOHN swoops in to suggest that there may be a new force to watch emerging from Sweden where 2017 is concerned.
