Swedish DJ sweethearts, Rebecca & Fiona, graced The Big Apple with their presence at one of New York’s most reputable and chic nightclubs, LAVO NYC.
Their North American debut album, “I Love You, Man” will hit later this summer. Rebecca & Fiona’s rapt engagement with the audience was just as attention-grabbing as the Swedish duo’s edgy fashion sense, beauty and DJ technique. The set was a steady blend of intense bass drops, candy sweet vocals and energetic beats that is ubiquitous to the electro-pop genre. A looping video ranging from cartoons to colorful graphics added to the whimsical ambience of the set. The intimacy of the lounge makes it an enjoyable experience for all partygoers since you are able to see the DJ table from every angle. Also noteworthy was the Midsummer Night’s Dream theme of the evening in which femmes clad in floral crowns and white dresses were sprinkled throughout the club. Based off the sounds from this evening, it is no wonder the two DJs were Grammis Award winners for “Best Electronic/Dance Album.” We are eager to hear whether or not the album is just as savory as Rebecca & Fiona’s set. ⌂
