Zonen

The hip hop group Zonen released the new single “Avdomnad” (“Numb”) in February. It seems like this is a first taste of an upcoming EP they are working on right now.

St. John’s Dance – “Justus Hecker Wants Us Dead”

St. John's Dance

The trio Adam Tensta, Eboi and Dida released the single “Master” in October with their St. John’s Dance. A month later they released the EP where the song belongs, the six track long “Justus Hecker Wants Us Dead”. If you liked the single you won’t get dissapointed with the EP, because it’s a great album. Already in the first instrumental track “Mannequins” they efficiently set up the ambience of the album; it feels like I step into a dark dystopic world or maybe rather a shadow version of our own, where it seems like that an electric charge will blow up in your face if you take the wrong step. It’s a trimmed, minimalistic production  with quite some variation where they use their three different voices in full. One of the best hip hop albums I’ve heard in a long time.

Uffe & Leoparden – “Genom Filter och Mix”

Uffe & Leoparden

Uffe & Leoparden is a hip hop-duo who released their debut album “Genom Filter & Mix” in Spring. They say that the lyrics are more inspired by Thomas Öberg in Bob Hund, rather than by other rappers, and I’m sure it is so even if they on occasion remind me about Timbuktu in the expression and in the melodic rap parts. It sounds really good and varied about the rap and at least as interesting is the music around  it, where they with eight-bit-sounds and dance music influences have created something with a special atmosphere and quite fun to listen to, in a way that I haven’t heard before. It feels playful and unique on this even and creative album. Taste their music with a song here below.

Dafne – “Pojkflicka”

Dafne

A couple of days ago I wrote about the duo DOM! and their excellent single “Tiden rinner iväg”. One hald of the duo, Dafne, has also released the solo EP “Pojkflicka”. Hip hop of course, and a personal one with a nice attitude, a cool balance between humor and seriousness, sharp and close. Listen to a couple of songs here below.

DOM! – “Tiden rinner iväg”

DOM!

Tips in my inbox about female hip hoppers is a rare thing, if it has ever happened since the start of the blog. When I do get one, and it’s as good as this, I’m more than happy to present it. It’s the duo DOM!, Dafne Jansson and Maria Blonde Andersson, who serve us a marvellous groove with the song “Tiden rinner iväg” from the eponymous single, which they released during the Autumn. Great rap, electro pop, a sticky synth line like it was taken from an old Factory hit, that never came to be, and a heavy groove from “Sweet Dreams”-synths makes a cool combo, also accompanied by a good-looking video signed Emil Bardh.
