Much as the continued world domination of 80s synth sound steals has long passed the point of no qualitative return, there are still a good few people who can drag out some post-Royksopp airy keyboards and embed them within slick pop without resorting to Vince Clarke's waste paper bin. Perhaps unsurprisingly, most of them are Swedish. Christian Niva recalls the feel of electro-house, dialing down its overbearing attitude in favour of dreamy filtered languidness, while simultaneously taking on the twitching corpse of chillwave at its own game, dragging the body away from the hazy Ibiza beachfront and letting it simmer.
