Maybe I have a thing for Swedes (I just introduced you to Rebecca and Fiona from Sweden) but you will see why after you take a listen to Adrian Lux.
Swedish DJ/Producer Adrian Lux has pretty much perfected crafting dope beat dance tracks. He released his debut album on April 3, 2012. The self-titled album contains 12 tracks including his previous singles Teenage Crime, Alive, Fire and Burning as well as a bonus track Leave the World Behind.
A fun personal fact is he is actually in a relationship with Rebecca from Rebecca and Fiona. Can you imagine their house parties? I want an invite.
His tracks feature traces of moonlit techno and moody progressive house along side lyrics that transcend you into deep thought and your body takes over in movement. He is pretty new to this EDM scene rising as the boom is taking hold everywhere, but he has a bright future if he keeps producing the gold he has out currently. Check him out and let me know if my love for Swedes is justified =)
Thanks, Colleen, for another great post. Hope you enjoyed today’s Summer Music Series musician. See you tomorrow for day thirty-nine!

It’s true; I have had a secret passion of wanting to be a dope Female rapper or DJ for quite some time. These ladies I am about to introduce you to really set the bar high for cool chicks that have mad skills.
Swedish, seductive bombshells, Rebecca & Fiona (Rebecca Scheja Fiona Fitzpatrick) are more than just pretty faces. They are both beyond triple threats boasting various skills above just being badass DJs. They are also singers, songwriters and record producers.
In May 2010 the girls released their first single – Luminary Ones and ever since, they have been on fire, lighting the way for female DJs all throughout the world. 2011 became an even bigger year for Rebecca & Fiona, they released their double platinum selling single Bullets and in November they completed everything by putting out their debut album I Love You, Man.
They are a blast to follow on Instagram and Twitter, make sure to give a listen, understand they created everything behind these songs from conception to lyrics, to vocals to production and dance your booty off! Enjoy!
Big thanks to Colleen for another wonderful post. Hope you enjoyed today’s Summer Music Series musician. See you tomorrow for day thirty-five!
