Discovery: Meet Sonny Alven

 

Sonny Alven is the new kickass 20-year-old producer from the Norwegian mecca of incredibly talented producers that is Bergen—I mean, the place gave the world Erlend Øye among others.

In Shallow Waters he teams up with vocalist Jarand in an invitation to Shallow Waters, a chilled out balearic house tune to groove to on a hot summer day. Deep and funky, just the way we like it.

And then there's their take on the incredibly catchy radio-friendly indie tune Am I Wrong by Nico & Vinz. Keeps the vocals almost intact and injects a flute-infused summer vibe that's scorching.

I'm sure you remember that recent huge hit by A Great Big World ft. Christina Aguilera. While the only time you'd catch me listening to it was if it played on the radio and my girlfriend was besides me, this sick chilled out take by Sondre Alvestad (his real name) hits all the right notes—even the ones on the pitched down vocal track. Unwind with this one.
