If you haven’t heard of Rebecca and Fiona yet, then make sure you burn their names into your brain now. Done? Ok. You’ve probably already heard the girls without realizing it, thanks to the popular Kaskade track “Turn It Down” that featured their vocals. The Swedish DJ/production duo are sure to make a dent in the domestic dance scene thanks to their great productions skills and their captivating, energetic DJ sets. Before we get to the album, let’s quickly run down their lives over 2012: they recently released a debut album titled “I Love You Man,” they’re touring all over North America, they have a residency at Las Vegas’ super club Marquee, and they have weekly gigs in Sweden. Their relentless schedule and tireless work ethic is one of the reasons why these ladies are destined to become successful.
I was lucky enough to sit down and talk with the two while they were in LA for their album release party at Dim Mak Studios. Despite a seemingly endless schedule, they managed to create an album with range and versatility not normally seen from today’s Electronic DJs. The album is a testament to how different this duo is from what’s already in the music market. Not only did they produce the songs themselves, but they sung on them as well.
“I Love You Man” was produced in intermittent studio sessions over the span of one-and-a-half years. The tracks feature a number of sounds including both digital and analog synths and live band elements, giving a much livelier feel. The album covers a wide spectrum, from downtempo tracks to fast-paced club songs. While the album is very diverse, their DJ sets are totally different and maintain a constant, high-level of energy and fun. In no way does “I Love You Man” represent what these girls do at a party. It’s only until see them live that you begin to understand how incredibly talented these two swedish women are (if you were wondering, they absolutely murdered Dim Mak Studios for the album release party). Definitely keep an out for Rebecca and Fiona and be sure to purchase their album from iTunes and/or Beaport.
P.S. I promised Rebecca and Fiona that I would end the article with their shout out to Brad in Waterloo who they’re “longing to get weird” with…don’t ask me!
