Rebstar – “You Know Nothing About Love” EP

December 11, 2015 at 6:11 pm


Rebstar finally released his awaited debut-EP about a week ago. It’s called “You Know Nothing About Love” and contains 6 tracks produced by the trio Saint, Madison and DJ Pain 1. His tone of voice has varied quite a bit on the earlier singles, but here he is signalling with a foghorn at the very start in the first track that he means business. This is far away from the joyful playfulness and pop-hooks in “Thing About You”, and he feels serious, direct and personal. The productions are great and varied to each track, and Saint impresses me again with his minimalistic style in the new track “All I Know”. Simply a brilliant debut EP with a lot of food for thought. Here are two tracks to taste:

And now hip hop from Malmö with Rebstar. He has just released the new single “Reputation”, and has also promised to deliver his awaited debut EP in November. “Reputation” is also the debut for young Saint as a producer, a debut which promises a lot for the future in this bassdriven track.

The Malmö rapper Saint has released two more tracks in the Autumn while we’re waiting for his debut album “Asylum”, which is supposed to come out in the end of this year. On the song “For Life” Rebstar, his colleague on the label Today Is Vintage, also contributes.

Another “Catching Up”-post, today with a hip hop theme. I don’t receive that much hip hop; not that surprising since there are other colleagues that do a better job with it; but what I do get is good:

Rebstar – “Safe Safe”

The versatile Rebstar has released the first single from the upcoming album “Girls Like Nicole”. It’s called “Safe Safe” and is a tribute to Rosengård (neighbourhood in Malmö) and Zlatan.

Adam Tensta (ft. Spoek Mathambo) – “Head Trippin”

The likewise creative Adam Tensta has been collaborating with the producer Carli resulting in the three-track EP “Black Taxi Joints”. The three songs will be released one at a time each week on the blog Discobelle. First up is “Head Trippin”, including the South African artist Spoek Mathambo:

Saint – The Devil Is Alive (ft. Rebstar)

Joined by Rebstar, Saint has created his version of Rick Ross’ “The Devil Is Alive” in this remix/cover:

Östblockarn – “Original Oregano”

Östblockarn takes us back to the eighties and runs around like Leisure Suit Larry in his morning gown in this video. Funny enough a game in the same spirit, with Östblockarn as one of the characters, is being created by NMRosta, who’s also responsible for this video.

Skuggan av Svampen med Östblockarn – “Dirty” -video

Skuggan av Svampen launches the detergent Dirty! “- People are tired of walking around smelling of tussilago. There’s a need of going back to something primal and dirty, Skivling says. Dirty works just like any other detergent, but with the opposite effect.”

Groovy music from Riddarna, Saint, Åkersbronx and Hillman Lighthouse

Riddarna – “Hjärtat slår”

Riddarna are on their way with their third album “Under Jorden”, due for release on February 12th. The first single from the album is called “Hjärtat slår” and to me they sound better than ever before; rough rock with a dark ambience, skillfully played and groovy.

Saint – “The Song”

Saint came from Gambia to Malmö in 2012, where he’s still waiting for the final decision in his asylum case. Gladly, this doesn’t stop him from moving forward and creating music, and the debut album “Asylum” is being released later this year. His first single “The Song”, featuring Bramma, invites us to a groovy hip hop with a dense, a bit dark atmosphere, massive choirs and a great chorus.

Åkersbronx – “Bromance”

Already on their first single “Spela död“, the duo Åkersbronx showed their sense for groovy music and the second one, I’d say, shows it even more. This is uplifting hip hop which makes me happy, where the feet start moving, whether you like it or not, right at the start of the song when they pick up some speed with funky guitars and a big dose of joy of playing. The duo have started out great and I’m looking forward to their next song.

Hillman Lighthouse – “Change Your Mind”

And here’s some more groovy music, but now from a quite different genre. It’s about country rock, Americana and a power pop inspired chorus. Hillman Lighthouse is the name of the band and the song is called “Change Your Mind”. They have created a simply wonderful, dynamic sound with just the right patina from the early seventies and I fall head over heels for this. The debut album is being released in March.
