SINGAPORE - First it was Avicii, the Swedish wonder boy. Will his fellow countrymen, DJ duo Cazzette, be the next to take the clubbing world by storm?
It certainly looks that way.
"We're just having the time of our lives now, but it's so surreal that we're getting so much attention right now," 20-year-old Sebastian Furrer, one half of the duo, told LOUD in an interview in Kuala Lumpur earlier this month.
They were there to perform as headliners for the annual Carlsberg Where's The Party? event.
Cazzette, consisting of Furrer and 24-year-old Alexander Bjorklund, have been on the rise since making their stamp on the electronic dance music (EDM) scene in 2011, with their official remix of Avicii's Sweet Dreams.
They are the newest project of Ash Pournouri's label At Night Management, the mastermind behind Avicii, who was ranked No. 3 in the world last year by DJ Magazine.
Furrer began producing techno music when he was just 15. He had found Bjorklund on MySpace, listened to his music and messaged him about how good he was.
Bjorklund replied, saying that house music was the next big thing and gave him tips on how he could improve.
After a while, they stopped talking, but reconnected two years later, after Furrer had brushed up on his skills.
Bjorklund said: "As it turns out, he had become really good."
