Major artist support is generally a good indicator of the trajectory of up-and-coming artists; MORTEN isn’t exactly “new” as he has nearly 300k followers on Facebook, but his trajectory is looking good.
He released a new song on PRMD yesterday with Frida Sundemo called “Beautiful Heartbeat,” and it’s quite beautiful. It’s a chilled out future house tune with focus on the vocals from Frida which aid to accentuate and amplify the higher notes in the track.
And as good as the original is, the remixes from Nine Lives, RAC, Avicii and Deorro are really something special. Avicii uses the upbeat and melodic synths we’ve come to love him for; Deorro tries out a relatively experimental interpretation of the original with plucked guitar notes and a staccato rhythm, far outside his usual bounce territory, and we absolutely love it; RAC’s remix is one continuous feels trip, with little interruption between segments.
The Nine Lives remix is maybe our favorite of the bunch, employing a reggae rhythm with jersey, trap and Slander-esque effects, it’s an incredible medley of styles that wouldn’t normally be found together.
