Twenty year old Lucas Nord is a rising star within the Swedish house music scene. Already achieving great success in 2012 in his native land for his first two solo singles ”Let us Stay Young” featuring Urban Cone and ”Close To You” featuring And Then, Lucas has also made an impression with his remixes for acts such as Adrian Lux, Loreen and Rasmus Faber and is currently on the dials for Crystal Fighters.
As the grandchild of legendary jazz clarinet virtuoso Putte Wickman, Lucas Nord has music overflowing in his blood and is not only a DJ and producer but also a songwriter, co-writing the hit track ”Embrace Me” for fellow countryman John Dahlbäck .
Originally released in June of 2012 on Phazing, “Embrace Me Pt.1” became a staple in the sets of many a big room DJ, with the Dirty South remix making its way onto a Paul Oakenfold compilation and peaking at number 3 on the Beatport overall chart.
Now, alongside his Urban Cone compatriot, Lucas delivers ‘Embrace Me pt 2’, a timely re-working of the anthem he co-wrote, just in time for festival season.
Retaining the uplifting melodies of Pt.1 but employing his trademark rousing synth work and punchy, funk laced production, Lucas’ touch means ‘Embrace Me Pt. 2’ holds its main room appeal but boasts a pop sensibility that ensures it sounds just as good in headphones as it does on the dance floor.
A sure-fire summer anthem from Sweden’s hottest new house export, ‘Embrace Me Pt. 2’ marks the start of a busy summer of releases for Lucas, which includes more singles, a debut album later, and some key remixes for a crop of exciting talent.
