Lucas Nord has been a busy man as of late, releasing music under the names of three different aliases (Hans Göran, Moodshift, and his own moniker), all while continuing to produce for other artists. Serving as his house-leaning side project, Hans Göran has allowed Nord to delve deeper into the feel-good realm, producing an array of summertime tracks built for warm weather listening. Out now via Nord’s Bisous imprint, ‘LIMONCELLO’ features Nord’s good friend and fellow collaborator, flyckt.
The housey offering kicks off with a shuffling set of drums and airy synths building around a vocal shot proclaiming ‘I Know You Feel It.’ It’s also accompanied by a short music video depicting the production of the Italian lemon liqueur, limoncello.
Hans Göran: "Limoncello is the first and only collab on the upcoming EP 'A Summer With Hans Göran'. Flyckt who is one of my closest friends had an amazing demo he sent me and we had discussed doing something together. The track had a euphoric “stay up till sunrise” type feel to it which was something the EP was kinda missing. I basically put my spin to the track and it took a different more Hans Göran shape but still had that euphoria. It’s a great track to start your day with but as we all know Limoncello is the perfect way to end a good night!"
Swede Lucas has been consistent throughout the last year with his involvement in the recent formation of pop-dance DJ/production trio Moodshift, with various releases. Nord decided to create Hans Göran, a moniker featuring both of his middle names that is used to release new, house-influenced sounds separate from his other ongoing projects.
A career highlight possibly worth mentioning includes his track with Tove Lo, ‘Run On Love,’ which reached the number one spot via Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart, as well as amassing over 45 million-plus streams to-date. Recently, he’s also received a Juno nomination for Mackenzie Porter’s ‘Drinkin Songs,’ in addition to gaining a top 25 position via the UK Dance Charts for Moodshift’s ‘Touch.’
