1. We Are Legends
HOMETOWN: Gothenburg, Sweden
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: At this point, it’s become pretty clear the Swedes know their sh*t when it comes to making catchy music. Gothenburg’s We Are Legends are no different! This electronic duo are fairly new to the game, but they’ve already established their own sound. They take what we love about ’90s house music and twist it for the modern era, with jangling synths and a steady bassline that gives an overall chilled vibe.
