Lately Sweden has seen a flood of rappers with stone hard boombap-beats. Somewhere in this flood you’ll find Pikturez & BumBill. Pikturez, a guy from the deep woods of Småland, did like the old emigrants and moved out. Not to New York, like you’re led to believe when you listen to him, but to Stockholm. After a while connecting through the net, Pikturez met Bumbill out on the green line. They continued to work together, and the latest work is “Urbanized Konfusion”. A consistently pleasant and, according to me and Pikturez, a narrative and true record. Pikturez:
“… lyrically it all comes from the inside. I can stand for every word on Urbanized Konfusion.”
Pikturez & BumBill is something for you that wants to listen to music that is completely free from annoying moments. If you like what you hear and are a sucker for Swedish hip hop, don’t despair! Pikturez is also available in Swedish, where he calls himself “Bildspråk den Tyngre”. Together with his crew Unionen, says Pikturez, a new release is underway. He’s also been a guest on many albums, like Shazaam’s “I Huvudet på John Landenfeldt” and Elsa’s “Stick-up”. You can be sure that you’ll hear a lot more from Pikturez in the future, not just here on Meadowmusic!
