Håkan Lidbo – Let’s Rock Film

Håkan gets ready to ROCK!

Well it just doesn’t get any ‘Better Than Sex’ does it?

Tony Naylor selects We Are Woodvillle’s latest release from Håkan for the Guardian Guide reviews section and says it with a glowing review:

“Clearly the news hasn’t reached Sweden yet that we’re all beyond bored with ramped Ed Banger electro. And good thing too, as this is unexpectedly brilliant. All biblical drums, shredded metal guitar and a breakdown that consists of some drunk blokes beatboxing into a Dictaphone, its lithe, punchy and winningly daft. Now let that be the last word on the matter.”

Håkan Lidbo is the chosen one!

Håkan takes a closer look

After weeks of deliberation, Depeche Mode have finally chosen a winner for their ‘Peace’ remix contest. Over 1000 producers entered the Beatport-sponsored remix contest, and over 51,000 votes were cast by the public making it the biggest remix competition ever held on Beatportal.

Hi name is our very own Håkan Lidbo!

Altogether the band received 20 remixes, 10 chosen by the public via a vote, and 10 chosen by Beatport’s judges (who listened to, and debated each and every remix).

Depeche Mode then listened to and scrutinized each of the 20 remixes, and spent many days deciding which mix would be crowned their eventual winner.

In the end, they found their champion.

Wahoooo!!

Hakan Lidbo – XX_XY

 Hakan Lidbo - XX XYProlific Swedish electronic producer and true gent Håkan Lidbo’s, XX_XY is electronic, synth driven pop music that asks a question that has been missing in today’s pop climate… are men are actually necessary in the future?! Get it now exclusively on Beatport.

Håkan’s own remix is straight up house designed for rocking floors and feet with a massive riff and the full vocal; whereas Zed Bias shows why he has been at the cutting edge of urban music for the last ten years by touching on breaks, dubstep and garage with a deep throbbing bass pinned down by a tough break and vocals.
