Alf Tumble & Halina Larsson – The Right Words EP
Global Release Date: June 11th 2012
‘The Right Words’ is a collaboration between Brooklyn based, Swedish singer Halina Larsson and Stockholm based producer / DJ Alf Tumble. A reworking (‘Rebounce’ as Alf likes to put it) of the title track from Halina’s debut album, blending the Swedish chanteuse’s vocal perfectly with Alf’s disco tinged electronica magic, creating an ethereally beautiful and uplifting track.
Halina was born in Stockholm, raised in Paris and has spent the last few years living in America and now calls Brooklyn her home. With a classical and jazz background – Halina studied jazz at the Los Angeles Music Academy – she has a versatile yet delicate vocal quality. Her solo music fits somewhere between neo soul and indie folk, drawing influence from Erykah Badu, St Vincent, Janis Joplin and Feist with Vice Magazine describing her “…voice is pretty mesmerizing”
Alf Tumble is somewhat of a stalwart on the Swedish disco house scene over the last fifteen years. Mostly known under the monikers Sumo, Bangana and Marymary – he’s had releases on labels such as Defected, Africanism, Trackmode and Soulfuric and remixed for Compost, Dessous and Wall of Sound and was honoured with a Grammy nomination in 2006. Things really kicked off for Alf when he released Wilder Side, a collaboration between Rasmus Faber, Alf and Candi Staton. Several years on and Alf is still honing his production skills in his the studio but also finds time to be a sommelier, wine writer and editor for the food magazine Fokus Krog.
