There’s a long and respected lineage of electronic dance music artists stemming the musical hotbed that is Stockholm. Adam Beyer, Jeremy Olander, Joel Mull, Genius of Time, Studio Barnhus, Jesper Dahlbäck are just a few, and the latest and greatest to join the aforementioned big wigs on her very own quest towards chart bliss and steaming dance floors is MOLØ. Following in the footsteps of her father, a well-respected and highly regarded selector in his own right, this young über-talent has been making moves on the local underground scene in the Swedish capital for the last half-decade. The relentless grind has undoubtedly paid dividends. Her tireless and inspiring attempts for progress in the studio and behind the decks has her playing multiple shows week in and week out at every imaginable club and underground event in the country, and in early 2018 she caught the eyes and ears of melodic house stand-out Jeremy Olander. The Vivrant label founder put MOLØ on opening duties at his label show, and after smashing it out the proverbial park, she was instantly rewarded with residency honors at all his future hometown shows. Olander proceeded with inviting her to spend time with him in the studio, which has resulted in a soon-to-be-finalized hard-hitting collaboration EP due on Olander’s Vivrant imprint in 2019. A first-ever occurrence for the Swedish star, who has never previously signed an unknown up-and-coming talent to his coveted label. In the summer of 2018, MOLØ continued to rack up impressive accolades when she landed herself a residency at hyped Stockholm club Kvarteret. There, she rocked the Vivrant Open show with Marino Canal, Henry Saiz and Jeremy Olander that culminated in an impromptu B2B. She also played the closing set after Detroit legend Carl Craig, which was a performance that still has everyone that experienced it in the flesh in a state of frenzy. As the excitement around her artistry has intensified, she’s also embarked on her first few tour runs across Europe, warming up the floor for acts in the likes of Luciano and Sasha at festivals and clubs such as The Ark Cruise in Ibiza, Culture Box in Copenhagen and Big Burn Festival in Istanbul. With her humble and soft-spoken nature, an insatiable hunger to absorb as much knowledge from the greats of the past and present mixed with an unparalleled raw talent and passion, there’s no telling how far and wide this mere 25 year old can take her craft.
