Åkersbronx – “Spela död”

December 9, 2013 at 5:51 pm


Hip hop duon Oscar Lind and Michael Cicero call themselves Åkersbronx, apparently a nickname for Åkersberga where they both grew up. A couple of days ago they released their debut single “Spela död” (“Play dead”).

All That Is

All That Is

Here’s a collection of singles I’ve picked up this Autumn. Quite a varied mix I believe.

All That Is – “You Are Drugs”

We’ve met Patrick Ray and the producer LJB before in the band Sidewalk, whom I’ve written about a couple of times. A little more than a year ago they started the project All That Is together, and early this Autumn the first song “You Are Drugs” was released. A new EP will follow within short.

Banana Beach – “Pelican Bay”

The quintet Banana Beach released their debut EP in Spring, “Window Licking”, and from the EP they picked out this single, “Pelican Bay”, an indie tune with dance ambitions.

Projekt Elliot – “Del 2: Sommarnattens Sång”

About two years ago I wrote about Projekt Elliot’s “Del 1: Äventyr i Lo Fi“. Now he’s back with the second part in the shape of the single “Sommarnattens Sång”, another track with acoustic Swedish pop and his characteristic glowing vocals.

Billy Fitzgerald – “Compass”

Billy Fitzgerald, aka Adam Rosenkvist, released this single a couple of months ago, “Compass”, a quiet, soft, lo fi-sounding tune with a fine melody.

Djävulen Möblerar Om – “Universum i en kub”

Malte from closed down Malte X has started a new project: Djävulen Möblerar Om. “Universum i en kub” is the first single and I recognise the music to some extent, in the punk and the rock’n’roll, but this is more garage and has a rawer sound overall. Here’s the single video.

DOM! – “Över Er”

November 21, 2013 at 5:24 pm


The hip hop duo DOM!, Dafne Jansson and Maria Blonde Andersson, are back with a new single, “Över Er”, the first one since last year’s “Tiden rinner iväg“, this time with music from the New Jersey producer Dev Beatz. They write:

“Över er” is a song with attitude with a simple message: we are here to take a place in the male dominated hip hop and “we’ll never get down again”.

They also say that the song is a taste from their new EP which is planned to be released in the end of this year.

Skuggan Av Svampen – “Stackars dig”

Skuggan Av Svampen

Earlier this year the hip hop band Skuggan Av Svampen released their second album “Stackars dig”, which I’m going to play a couple of songs from. It’s a playful, groovy album where they add a number of styles to the mix, like soft soul, reggae, R’n’B, electro pop and other stuff. It’s laidback with a lot of humour and a row of colleagues are helping out on the 13 tracks, for example Jeepstarr, Östblockarn, Fubbik and Kollektivet.

Dida – “Don’t Go”

October 16, 2013 at 4:26 pm


Here’s Dida with a track from early summer, “Don’t Go”, a worthy follow-up to the excellent mixtape “Heavy Is The Head That Wears The Crown”, which I wrote about earlier.
