Instantly emotive, ‘Long Summer Nights’ kicks straight into Vargen’s gripping vocal topline whilst gliding through a passionate progression of piano keys and delicate rhythm before upping the energy with an ensemble of electro-tinged synths and powerful ‘80s inspired cinematic drum work. Whether on a crowded dancefloor or cruising into the horizon with the top down, this latest addition to the Perfect Havoc catalogue will strike a chord and linger in the memory all summer long.
Oliver Nelson first burst onto the scene with a series of high-profile nu disco remixes before Polydor snapped up his debut single ‘Found Your Love’ in 2016. Now with over 400 million global streams to his name, Nelson is the brains behind high profile remixes for NEIKED, Ella Henderson, Kesha, Joel Corry and many more. His infectious bootleg of The Wombats ‘Greek Tragedy’ unexpectedly went viral on TikTok in 2021, featuring in over 430,000 videos and culminating in an official release on 14th Floor Music.
Nelson is a master in the studio, evident in collaborations with Kygo on ‘Riding Shotgun’ (Sony) and on big house productions on the label that discovered him, Perfect Havoc, including standouts, ‘Is It Real?’ and ‘Something ‘Bout The Music’. Ever pushing the envelope, last year Nelson launched electro-pop group Moodshift, alongside Grammy-winner, Lucas Nord, and vocalist, flyckt, and remains in demand as a remixer too with a huge official rework for Donna Summer turning heads last June.
Having accumulated 50 million streams and completed a huge arena tour as guest to Dermot Kennedy, Lilla Vargen is one of Ireland’s fastest rising new talents. She has regularly collaborated with the MyRiot production duo whose credits include London Grammar and Halsey. Having so far released fewer than a dozen tracks, Lilla has already achieved seven Top 15 New Music Friday features with Spotify plus numerous key playlists at Apple Music. Radio is rapidly gaining traction too, with Radio 1 airplay from Phil Taggart, Huw Stephens and Best New Pop alongside support from Radio X and Ireland’s RTÉ 1 and 2.
Perfect Havoc – nominated for Best Independent Record Label at the 2022 Music Week Awards – is one of the most successful indie dance labels of recent years. Its trademark commercial dance with a smattering of the more club-focused sounds has generated the label over 3 billion streams and given rise to six UK Top 20 singles including the No.1 single ‘Head & Heart’ by four-time Brit Award nominated producer, Joel Corry & MNEK.
Also knowing more than a thing or two about hit singles is the partnering label on this release. Prolifica was formed in 2004 as both the management and dance label behind artists such as Robert Miles, Spiller, Planet Funk and Dimitri from Paris. It’s since transitioned into a multi-artist award winning company behind such established global arena artists as Two Door Cinema Club.
