Three schoolgirls are magically turned into boys in this ambiguous Swedish teen fantasy, which might remind you of Lukas Moodysson’s films
Teen-angst drama merges with trans identity parable in this pointed fantasy movie from suburban Sweden. It could remind you of Tomas Alfredson’s Let the Right One In or Lukas Moodysson movies such as Show Me Love and We Are the Best!
Three teenage girls are getting bullied at school by misogynist, homophobes in their class, and their useless teacher stands by and lets it happen. They are Kim (Tuva Jagell), Bella (Wilma Holmén) and Momo (Louise Nyvall). Posters of David Bowie and Patti Smith in the bedroom hint at identity issues; the girls yearn for deliverance from the prison of gender. Then, in a coven-like defensive huddle, these three drink from the fermented juice of a strange fruit growing in a greenhouse in one of their gardens – and they turn into boys, »

Adam Pålsson (Don’t Ever Wipe Tears Without Gloves) will play the singer/songwriter; he reunites with Holm after also appearing in his 2010’s Behind Blue Skies. The role of his brother and songwriting partner Kenneth is still being cast.
“He started a music career and Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus produced him before they started Abba,” the director explains of the musical wunderkind who could play multiple instruments. He became a huge star in the 1970s and suffered from schizophrenia »

After receiving some top notch remixes for their song “No Money” courtesy of Skrillex and Marshmello over the summer, Galantis are teasing some new material in the form of an upcoming collaboration with Australian producer Hook n Sling. The Swedish duo unveiled their latest creation during a performance over the weekend in Las Vegas, offering up the first taste of the new collaboration to the crowds at Life Is Beautiful.
The new song was debuted during a live stream from the Nevada based festival, meaning that the audio quality is somewhat wanting. However, the duo offer up a fairly lengthy preview that gives us a good idea of the direction they’ve taken.
Titled “Show Me Love,” the new collab starts off with some ear catching female vocals over sparse synth chords, before a steel drum melody takes over as the percussion begins to build up. The clip then skips forward into the drop, »

Hardwell has unveiled a new remix over the weekend during the latest episode of his regular radio show Hardwell On Air, dropping a re-imagining of Steve Angello and Laidback Luke’s classic “Show Me Love” with Robin S.
Hardwell’s remix opens with the familiar organ melody and massive vocal hooks from the original version, but the Dutch producer crafts a high octane big room beat underneath to give the tune a more contemporary edge. The new rework opts for a restrained arrangement, allowing the percussion to gradually build up and repeat in a linear fashion. The original tune’s identity is maintained while the production is given a fresh revamp, making for a dancefloor ready update.
For long time fans, Hardwell’s new “Show Me Love” rework should come as no surprise, as a bootleg from 2009 served as the blueprint for what would go on to become a dance music classic. »

Skrillex and Chance the Rapper have a longstanding collaborative relationship – a photo of the pair appeared on Instagram back in 2014. In March, Skrillex debuted a remix of Hundred Waters' “Show Me Love,” and the famous producer recruited Chance to provide new verses.
The two artists were presented with a different sort of remix challenge on The Late Show this week: after Stephen Colbert delivered a series of jokes about new developments in the world of breakfast cereal, Skrillex and Chance put the monologue to music. Most of the burden »
On May 7th, Edm superstar Kaskade played to a packed crowd at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The sold out show saw about 20,000 people piling into the venue to hear the DJ and producer perform – and he didn’t disappoint. As a special treat to his fans, Kaskade has now uploaded a full recording of the show to Soundcloud, and it can be heard in the player above.
The live set opens with a brief introduction from the DJ himself, before a beautiful passage of ambient jazz fills the speakers. From there, Kaskade masterfully curates the set, focusing mostly on his own work both in original and remixed form. A number of tracks from other artists are included in the mix as well though, with music by Galantis, Max Vangelli, and Missy Elliot all featuring in the tracklist.
A whopping forty tracks compose the more than two hour long live set, »

It’s been a quick rise to the top for Dutch producer Sam Feldt. Though he only signed to Spinnin’ Records two years ago, he’s had some absolutely massive hits released through the label (“Show Me Love” and “Midnight Hearts,” to name but two).
Now, coming off a very successful Ep, Sam’s stock is soaring higher than ever and as one of the more prominent faces of the Tropical House movement, his influence and impact on the dance music scene is certainly being felt around the world.
When we were at Coachella last weekend, we had the chance to catch up with Sam for an exclusive interview. Having just finished his set at the Sahara Tent, he was in a great mood and eager to chat about his experience playing the festival, what new music he has coming up, his experience working with Spinnin’ Records and more.

Let’s address the elephant in the room right off the bat: No, this is not yet another remix of Robin S’ 1993 classic “Show Me Love.” It is, in fact, the Skrillex remix of a track of the same name which features vocals from the likes of Chance The Rapper and Moses Sumney.
The meandering pace of the track is kept by a subtly syncopated low end, with Nicole Miglis’ feathery vocal from the original still taking center stage. Chance The Rapper’s verse is the most noteworthy addition to the arrangement, which otherwise occurs to us as one of Skrillex’s more minimalistic productions.
Hundred Waters is one of the more unexpected acts signed to Skrillex’s Owsla imprint. With his support, however, the Gainesville, Florida indie band will surely gain access to a substantially wider audience.
YouTube removed the first upload of Skrillex‘s remix of Hundred Waters’ “Show Me Love, »

“Todd Haynes‘ filmography is often overwhelming in its intellectual acumen and emotional devastation,” we noted upon the release of his latest film this past fall. “This is true of Carol, which is at once a return to the deconstruction of femininity, social mores, and mild anarchy of privilege, as well as an honest and heartbreaking story about falling in love and the trepidation therein.” Over 100 film experts, ranging from critics to writers to programmers, agree on the emotional power of the drama, as they’ve voted it the best Lgbt film of all-time.
Conducted by BFI ahead of the 30th BFI Flare: London Lgbt Film Festival, they note this is the “first major critical survey of Lgbt films.” Speaking about leading the poll, Haynes said, “I’m so proud to have Carol voted as the top Lgbt film of all time in this poll launched for the Fest’s 30th edition. »
