HNNY (pronounced “honey”) is probably the hottest producer of dance music to come out of Sweden since ABBA. The young Stockholm native debuted with an unlikely, hypnotic Mariah Carey edit released on Studio Barnhus in 2011. The year after that he broke through in the underground house scene with his smash hit “For The Very First Time”, released on Local Talk, as well as a much sought-after Steve Reich edit 12”. So far, 2013 has seen the release of another sure shot house anthem, “Yearning” (again on Local Talk), and a simple yet brilliant edit of Brandy & Monica currently doing the rounds as a limited white label. Put HNNY in a DJ booth and you’ll hear an expertly mixed set of underground club music new and old, with fond memories of the old school and a steady gaze set on the future of dance music.
