Nina Legnehed, co-founder of Nordic by Nature along with Steffi von Kannemann, has submitted this all Scandinavian, electronic treat, sure to enchant your ears, and inspire you to dance — in your chair or at one of the many rooftop or garden parties you have planned this summer.
“I wanted to do a very personal mix. Usually, when asked to do mixtapes, I include a lot of the music we are currently promoting, but this time I wanted to do something different. I’ve tried to find music that I find exciting at the moment, something that reminds me of why I think music is really important.
The music I listen to at home is often quite old, 70s-soul, 90s-hip hop, stuff like that. I think it’s because I need a break from the stuff we listen to at the office. Sometimes I need to force myself to keep my curiosity alert. It’s easy to become a bit jaded when you’ve worked with really new artists for a long time—you feel like you’ve heard it all before.
The music on this soundscape is all Scandinavian, since we made our name working mostly with Scandinavian artists. I also realize after finishing that a majority of the artists are women.”
