Scandinavian music today

There’s been a lot of words written about modern Scandinavian music, mainly because it’s known to be fresh electronic pop that has its own sound. Those words has not been written in High End audio publications previously since the sound quality hasn’t been anywhere near good enough. They might sound good in a club or in headphones but that’s about it.

Now, things are changing. If you have a listen to Gothenburg band Little Dragon’s latest album ‘Nabuma Rubberband’ you’ll find amazing sounding music with real high quality. Yukimi Nagano‘s voice sound crystal clear agains the deep electronic tones.

Norwegian pop duo Röyksopp and Swedish pop artist Robyn have also recently released an EP called ‘Do It Again‘ together that has a rich, detailed and great sounding electronic production.

So, if you’re in to pop but find it hard to discover music that sounds good on your own system you should give these guys a chance. Also, comment if you have any other suggestions that you think would belong here.

If anyone knows Little Dragon you should tell them to pop in considering they’re in Gothenburg as well:) We have Coltrane Supreme 2 set up now in the big Svanå level 3 listening room and ‘Nabuma Rubberband’ sound absolutely amazing. Official invite to Little Dragon! Contact on: info@marten.se +44 31 20 72 00

Great review!

The Miles 5 is presumably the most live-sounding speaker in this size! …and price range!

Miles 5

We just received a copy of German HiFi magazine StereoPlay 07/2014. The conclusion goes something like this:

The Miles 5 perfectly succeeds in creating unity. This is one of the nicest, most supreme, two-way loudspeaker in the absolute top class.
