I overheard some epic sounds coming from my colleagues’ speakers this AM, layered with gorgeous soulful vocals, I had to add ask what it was, and it comes to us courtesy of Norway from Henry Land. Off the top of my head, and I’ve had this track on repeat all day, “Tainted” is a future- bass 80’s inspired pop ballad, that could only come from the Scandinavians. If you’re a fan of melody, and really want to discover a gem, press play, you won’t be disappointed, this record deserves more shine!

His remix of OMI’s “Cheerleader” last summer was a foolproof breakthrough, placing his name on the top of the charts in over 50 countries and giving him an outstanding fanbase that could pack any venue or stadium with every performance.
