Canadian producer Mawhs (b. John Tweedie) and Scandinavian singer Marie Dahlstrom link up to form the collaborative duo Hans Island, named after and uninhabited barren island located in the Nares Straight between Canada and Denmark/Greenland, and is claimed by both countries. Such a fitting name, as the two mold together both their nationalities and sounds.
From their forthcoming self-titled EP, the duo release the single "Start Over," a blend of Mawhs smooth percussion and chords with Dahlstrom’s velvety voice, which creates a vibey treat for the ears.
Marie, who also produces her own material, released The Renditions and Gloom EPs in 2013 and has since been supported by 1Xtra's Trevor Nelson and featured as 'MOBOs introducing'; she also won three Scandinavian Soul awards last year. Mawhs has his original productions “Petrichor and Retrospect” featured on various of taste-maker blogs such as Earmilk, Hilly Dilly and Do Androids Dance.
