Swedish producer STRØM releases futuristic rework of ‘Teenage Crime’

Swedish producer and multi-instrumentalist STRØM is back with a cover of hit dance record ‘Teenage Crime’ Adrian Lux.

Last year saw the release of singles ‘Shay-Ling’ and ‘Mesmerize’, which stayed at No.1 on Hype Machine for two weeks and was used to soundtrack a BMW commercial featuring pro surfer Freddie Meadows.

STRØM’s ambition is to break away from musical structures, outside of the rigidity of constrictive genre labels. He is influenced by artists such as James Blake, Jai Paul, Oceaán & SBTRKT.

He tells us that “Teenage Crime has been one of my favourite songs since it was released, and I wanted to give it a custom made STRØM-suit.” Although the melody and lyrics are the same as the original, the joyful tone of the song has been twisted in a dark, pulsating piece of futuristic pop, filled with airy 808 kicks, lo-fi 90s synths and falsetto vocals.

With no social media accounts and no online presence other than his tracks, there is only one window into the world of STRØM – to listen to and be absorbed by his music.
