The New Year is in full swing now, bringing with it a swathe of brand new music for us to sink our teeth into!

And what’s better than new sounds from one artist? New sounds from TWO artists, of course! We’re looking to Norway for this new soundtrack, as we tune in to a brand new remix delivered fresh from the hands of upcoming Norwegian DJ Hasta!

Hasta spent 2015 working on and releasing his second EP Botanique, which arrived via prestigious French electro label Kitsuné and Universal Norway to much excitement and acclaim, before he rounded off the year with a brand new track entitled ‘Kiss of Death’ ft. Milo Mills.

So what better way to celebrate a new year and a new season of music than by re-working a track from one of his favourite artists?! Hasta today reveals a special remix unveiling his very own take on fellow Norwegian Aurora‘s 2015 hit single, ‘Runaway’.

Of the remix, Hasta says…

“I’ve been wanting to do an Aurora remix for a very long time, ever since I first heard her angel-like voice two years ago (I LOVE UUU AURORA <3 <3 <3) The remix is a bit more up-tempo with more of a bass drive than the original, and I hope you all like it!”

All set to perform at this weekend’s Eurosonic Festival in Holland – a bona fide hotspot for tracking down fresh new talent – Hasta will be among good company, as the festival boasts a line up packed full of 38 Nordic artists, including Elias, Yung, Lowly and of course, Hasta’s lovelove, Aurora.

Tune in to the remix below for a taste of what this weekend’s live performances have in store, and keep a close eye on the Nordic Playlist over the coming weeks as we reveal much more about this prolific young producer…
