Archive 1998 – Tellus -Take Me Up

Also available on SpotifyApple Music, iTunesJuno & Beatport

The last single from Tellus was Take Me Up, taken from the album. The melody was re-used from my very first vinyl-release “Another Gate” from 1993. Together with the magazine MM, Goldhead Music and my production company Q Park, we launched ”Swedish Masters Of Remix”. Anybody could participate in remixing this song and we had products worth 30.000 SEK for the lucky winners.

We received over 160 remixes in genres from jazz & drum’n’bass to eurotechno & rock. The 3 winners can be heard on the single.

On the forth place, just outside the top 3, we find Axel Hedfors from Lund, with his ”OXL Remigz”. It is a house-version that doesn’t really go all the way. The name OXL should shortly after change into Axwell, and this is the start of an impressive journey in Swedish music history. The nowadays famous producer Henrik B also participated with his techno-version, sent in on a cassette, but the rules demanded CD, to be able to compete in the same sound quality as everybody else, so it automatically was disqualified. But it became the start of a very nice friendship.
