REVIEW: Qulinez feat. Koko LaRoo - Closer out on Armada Trice

Coming off of a year that saw them race toward the top of the dance music scene, Qulinez are intent on continuing their meteoric rise well into 2017. Today, the Swedish DJs and producers touched down on Armada Trice with their brand-new single: ‘Closer’. 
Made in collaboration with American singer-songwriter Koko LaRoo, ‘Closer’ is an oasis of down-tempo grooves and graceful vocals. The song spotlights the full extent of Qulinez’s production prowess and is a tremendous addition to the Swedish duo’s commendable discography, which includes remixes for the likes of The Chainsmokers and Armin van Buuren. 

Qulinez are made up of long-time friends Alexander Lager and Johannes Gustafsson. After breaking onto the scene in 2012 with internationally acclaimed floor cracker ‘Troll’, the exclusive Armada Music signees made waves with a slew of stellar singles and remixes, including ‘Body Dancing’ feat Belle Humble and ‘In Your Arms’ with Sex Panther. Their track ‘Hookah’ was released on W&W’s Mainstage Music imprint after its world premiere on the main stage of Tomorrowland Brasil.
