This fall, we’ve been fortunate enough to receive not one but two originals from Swedish DJ/producer Olwik. After flexing his progressive house muscles with last month’s “Velocity,” he’s feathered off the gas pedal somewhat to deliver “Fight No More,” a considerably more poppy, melodic use of his keen production chops.
Featuring a glassy top line by vocalist Terri B!, “Fight No More” is built around a bouncy synth melody that almost sounds like something from an ’80s pop song with updated sound design elements. While the simplistic progression and straightforward lyrics make it less of a stylistic game changer than, say, some of Olwik’s recent remixes, the track makes up for it with undeniable mass appeal.
Seing as how Olwik has ramped up his originals recently, perhaps music fans can expect more from him in 2016. Until then, however, be sure to check out “Fight No More” on Spotify.
