For the fourth release on DJ Koze and Marcus Fink’s Pampa imprint, hyperactive hotshot house hunk Axel Boman steps up and delivers a stunning debut EP for the label. Since many years an important force on the small but friendly Swedish club scene, and one third of the Studio Barnhus crew together with Kornél Kovács and Petter, Axel is as experienced a producer as his ideas are fresh. This tattooed Swede often talks about creating “worlds” rather than “tracks", and on his “Holy Love” EP we are transported to three very different places indeed. The title track, a collaboration with vocalist J Jonason, invites you to take part in a lazy afternoon cocktail party onboard an old sailing boat in Gothenburg’s archipelago. Ten City are mixing up the White Russians and Giorgio Moroder’s estranged Swedish grandson is peeling the shrimp. You fall asleep on the patio and wake up in a sweaty basement later that night. Through the shabby speakers of one of those small but friendly Stockholm night clubs, you hear “Purple Drank", a sleazy, sexy number that draws influences from Houston style screw music, classic deep house and hypnotic techno. The irresistible vocal hook - “I woke up with your name on my lips” has already echoed across dance floors from Tokyo to Amsterdam. Bouncy yet unsettling, this track is probably the most obvious DJ’s favorite on the EP. Morning comes yet again, and for the after party we head to Axel’s private rooftop terrace in sunny Gröndal. The laptop speakers are banging out the most loved up piano loop you ever heard. “Not So Much” is as simple and naïve as Axel Boman’s haircut, a perfect ending to a perfect night and a perfect little record from this imperfect genius of a dance music producer.

Feedback: “


Prins Thomas – “Loving all the stuff on Pampa so far, this is no exception ”


Nicolas Jaar – “Just as I hear Soul Clap play it, I get this from you! I LOVE Purple Drank - vocals are amazing, progression and groove is great - also really smart bassline. The other two have a nice "light" quality to them but they don't touch my heart like Purple Drank does. Thank you very much for sending.”


Peter Kruder – “Holy Love is amazing. Fantastic vibe. Loooove this and will play this for sure. Purple Lips is the deep shizznit. Love and play it too. Not so much is sweet as well. Supadupa release on the splendid Pampa!”


Steve Bug – “I just woke up with your name on my lips und plötzlich war ich zurück in der pampa! Nut maybe that's only because i am still purple drunk! Not as drunk as yesterday, when we were doing holy love! But this ep is still sounds nice to me! Purple Drank ist aber definitiv am weitesten vorne für mich! danke für den tollen abend!”
