After a couple of months with a lower post frequency, I’m trying to catch up here on the blog. Today I start with one of the best Swedish hip hop albums I have heard in a while. It’s the band Supersci, hailing from Sundsvall, who released the record “Entropy” in April, a record that certainly deserves a place in the spotlight.
It’s a thematic album which interestingly revolves around the physical concept of entropy, a measure of the disorder of a system, and the law that states that the disorder in the universe constantly grows. They twist and turn this theme in a number of ways, witty, playful, thoughtful. The music is mainly based on electronica and is quite varying, both catchy and creative. They have rooted their sound in nordic ambiences but don’t hesitate to bring in world music in the shape of of latino- and african rhythms, along with other influences. They are accompanied by a row of well-chosen guests and you get to hear Kristin Amparo, Cleo, 7evenThirty, Isabel Neib and Rapper kC contribute to the songs. Taste three of the songs from an impressive album.
