Win : Awesome by Nature w. The Embassy

02:33 PM

Ten years ago, The Embassy musically moved the city Gothenburg from the Swedish coast to a small island somewhere in the Caribbean or Adriatic Sea almost on their own. “Hurt“, their debut-EP Sneaky Feelings‘ opener - back then released on Dolores Recordings -, re-defined Scandinavian pop. Their later label colleagues at Service, Studio, where at that time still jamming their guitars and Air France, Lake Heartbeat, Korallreven and Pacific! should arrive not until later. What followed were by now modern classics as “It Pays To Belong“, “Stage Persona” or “Lurking From A Distance”, which received its remix orders from the hands of Tensnake.

Recently the duo became a little quieter: Last album Tacking was released by Service in 2005, last single “State ’08 by France’ Asphalt Duchess in 2009. Here the band worked with Studio’s Dan Lissvik as producer, who also joined Embassy-singer Fredrik Lindson in The Crêpes around that time. Now the latter and band-mate Torbjörn Håkansson are working on new material again and venture a trip to Berlin playing one of their very rare gigs on this Friday night in Berlin.

It should be a really intimate night-out, since the Backyard near Kreuzberg underground station Prinzenstraße is a rather small, just opened venue. And the rest of the Awesome by Nature party programme is also top-of-the-class: Stockholm’s Tony Senghore, who operates at quality addresses such as Sound Pellegrinoand Diplo’s Mad Decent, will make his Berlin debut and Lars Moston from Top Billin, Peoples Champion, The Harasser, Justlikesnow, Jon Lax and the Nordic by Nature DJs will make the German-US-American-Swedish club triangle go crazy all night as well.

Fortunately we can give away 1×2 guestlist invites among every comment, you Swedophiles leave us until tomorrow noon. As always the winner will be chosen random, so: Good luck!
