Swede Oliver Nelson maintains his country's sterling reputation for pop sensibility with every track he puts out. His brand of beachy nu-disco is nothing but good vibes and he makes it seem effortless. In advance of the Perfect Havoc Disco at the Shapes Warehouse in London next week, Oliver's put together a selection of tunes that'll drench your day in sunshine, no matter what kind of Winter weather you're enduring.
Opening with a breezy number from Darius, the mix features tracks from Hayden James and Klaves amidst remixes by Alex Metric and a closer by Maceo Plex. "It's important to me that you can listen to the mixtape whenever you want to, at home, at work, clubbing or whatever," Nelson tells THUMP. "I often try to find unique but quite basic stuff that is easy to dance or just listen to."
2015 promises big things for the prolific remixer. In his words: "I'm currently working on my EP and a lot of big collaborations. I just signed to William Morris too and I'm planning to do a mini tour this year hopefully"
