For every Swedish hopeful to emerge amid the age of global hysteria towards Electronic music, few can boast of the heights attained by fast rising duo Nause. Both in their early twenties and united by the same vision and passion for House music that consumed their teenage years, their inauguration to Universal music and the global Dance scene alike has marked a journey of intensely focused talent and considerable enthusiasm for all-embracing music. Leaping from the underground club scene of their native Stockholm into a series of online collaborative efforts, childhood friends Jacob Criborn and Leonard Scheja would find themselves bonded by a passion and hunger to make new waves in the familiar tides of Swedish Dance culture. Each donning their own unique talents to the table in the early days of their live and studio collaborations, what started as a part-time flare of enthusiasm in the studio would soon become the life and breath of their day-to-day lives. In a short but sharp sweep, the budding duo has already proven their worth on many levels. Debuting for Universal Music with ‘Made Of’ - their first essential stab a the charts and airwaves alike - double-barreled label follow- up ‘Mellow’ and its vocal remodel ‘Hungry Hearts’ for 2012 have established a strong sense of consistency to this hotly tipped duo. Preserving their knack emotional resonance and uplifting melodic hallmarks alongside such high profile remix duties for Kaskade, Rebecca & Fiona and Eric Turner alike, it is fair to say that their status as Scandinavia’s best-kept secret is close to being shot-down. Matching the excitement of their studio triumphs with a glowing presence on the Swedish festival circuit, explosive homeland appearances at Way Out West, Summerburst, Hultsfred and an exclusive appearance for Carlsberg’s ‘Where’s The Party’ concept for 2012 have successfully set in motion a reputation for unforgettable live shows that echoes the energy of their productions. But far from a short and lucky strike upon the industry, the young producers are showing little sign of resting on their laurels just yet. Already penciling in their debut American tour for winter 2012 and a third original single for Universal entitled ‘This Is The Song’, the duos melodic and versatile approach to their craft continues to serve quality and excitement at every turn. Far from resting on their laurels quite yet, the future looks sure to prove that Nause are made of something integral for European Dance music and the wider industry alike.
