Young Live - 'Lovebahton'

-First Up! - 28 Apr 14 kl. 10:07

My morning is summer. You know; bird chatter, pink cherry blossoms in full bloom, sweet love, bare legs, coconut ice cream, flowy chiffon dresses, short booty shorts, bandeau bikinis, all shades of coral, freeze at the dairy counter in the grocery store, tanlines and sunkissed skin. I go on and on, just so much positive about the summer season.

Brooke Candy - 'Opulence' Official Video

-First Up! - 28 Apr 14 kl. 07:51

Haaay! Yes, it was time to blow so new life into this site again. In a world were Iggy Azalea once was fresh and fun then turned into this awful mainstream radio friendly major label robot (seriously, listened to the "New Classic" promo once, an experience I wish never to repeat) it' s so nice that Brooke Candy can balance it all out.

Cashmere Cat - 'With Me'

-First Up! - 25 Nov 13 kl. 21:15

A year ago Magnus August Høiberg dropped his debut EP "Mirror Maru" and here's finally some new material in form of 'With Me' (cop off iTunes )taken off his upcoming "Wedding Bells" EP due out on Lucky Me in January next year.

Gnučči - 'Finders Keepers' (Mack Beats Remix)

-First Up! - 21 Nov 13 kl. 16:37

Oh #HorzeLife, I can't convey into words on how much I wish I was at home in Hultsfred, on my old pony right now, galloping bareback on the old airfield so fast you almost have no control over the situation. Just swish by, like the wind.

Young Live - "CHALICE"

-First Up! - 21 Nov 13 kl. 10:33

Just in time for his birthday Young Live serves up this gift of a remix release called "CHALICE". 10 tracks featuring remixes of Ciara, Lorde, Sky Ferreira, Selena Gomez, Little Jinder, Laurel, Soap&Skin, Lana del Rey, Major Lazer & Amber Coffman, Katy Perry featuring Juicy J and Far East Movement featuring Rye Rye.

Little Jinder - 'Shh'

-First Up! - 12 Nov 13 kl. 19:55

Little Jinder dropped her debut album, a dreamy journey through love and pain called "Break Up", earlier this year (buy off iTunes and listen to my absolute favourite tracks off the release below). But that was then, tomorrow marks a whole new career path for Jinder as she releases her first single in Swedish and it's bloody brilliant, for all you non-Swedish readers the chorus goes like this: "Vet vad du heter / Låtsas vi som / Jag vet vad du heter / Glömt det i morrn / Men jag kallar dig för Shh".

Abidaz ft. Robyn - 'Nitti5' (prod. by Stress)

-First Up! - 08 Nov 13 kl. 22:06

The Swedish media hype around Abidaz has been crazy for a while, and today as he finally dropped his solo debut album "In & Ut" on SoBlue Music (buy here or listen via spotify) well, my Swedish feed has been 99% Abidaz related. No joke. He has been labelled "the new saviour of Swedish hip hop" and the press release I got this morning read "They say "Swedish rap album of the year".

❤: Mack Beats ft. Julia Spada - 'Lägg Dig Ner'

-First Up! - 07 Nov 13 kl. 11:38

Swedish producer Marko Saez alias Mack Beats dropped his debut album "Centrum" on Hemmalaget/Sony the 5th of June and ever since that day 'Lägg Dig Ner' (cop off iTunes here) featuring Julia Spada has been a part of my daily routine. It's a tune that still manage to get me floored every single time I listen to it. The masterpiece is co-written by Ji Nilsson who herself has a little sweet artist career bubbling, listen to her brand new 'I'm Her' below.

Mapei - 'Don't Wait' (Kingdom Remix)

-First Up! - 06 Nov 13 kl. 07:40

Oh, I still can't listen to this tune without tearing up. On the bus, in the store or at home, the scenery doesn't matter. It's just one of _them_ tracks.

Gnučči - 'Finders Keepers' (prod. by Cristian Dinamarca)

-First Up! - 01 Nov 13 kl. 08:08

Here it is! Gnučči's brand new single 'Finders Keepers', out today on Famalam Records, produced by Cristian Dinamarca and the first offer from her upcoming EP "Psycho Happy". Cop 'Finders Keepers' off iTunes here and listen to it via Spotify here.

Gnučči - 'Finders Keepers' Official Video Trailer

-First Up! - 28 Oct 13 kl. 21:43

Gnučči will finally drop a new single this week! It's produced by Cristian Dinamarca, called 'Finders Keepers' and both the single and the official video, directed by non other than Roxy Farhat (known for this lil' video for the Knife's 'A Tooth For An Eye'), will be out November 1st via Famalam Records.

❤: More Fire Crew ft. Dizzee Rascal ‎- 'Still The Same'

-First Up! - 28 Oct 13 kl. 09:48

Dizzee Rascal dropped his fifth album with the ooh so clever title "The Fifth" a couple of weeks ago. An album that is a gruesome disappointment for us who was swept off our feet 10 years ago when Dylan Mills released "Boy In The Corner" and followed it up with "Showtime" a year later. Trust me, I've been one of those thinking that Dizzee could rap on everything, that he was indestructible but "The Fifth", seriously I'm lost for words.

Queff & Denniz Prime ft. Toffer - 'Min Stil'

-First Up! - 22 Oct 13 kl. 11:53

Oh how I've been waiting for this track! 10 loooong months to be exact, ever since Queff & Denniz Prime premiered it on their live mixtape "No Regert". 'Min Stil', that also features Toffer, serves as the first single (cop off iTunes here) from the duos upcoming release "VOSTOK", set to drop the 18th of November.

Min Stora Sorg - 'Jag Står Kvar'

-First Up! - 15 Oct 13 kl. 22:29

A very few artists move me the same way like Ann-Sofie Lundin more known as Min Stora Sorg does. A year ago she dropped her amazing self titled 6 track long debut EP and on that EP you'll find her absolutely exquisite version of the old Swedish psalm 'Den Blomstertid Nu Kommer' from 1695 (listen to Leo Zero's remix of it below). Now Anso is ready to unleash 'Jag Står Kvar' (cop off iTunes here), the first single off her debut album "Mvh Anso, M$$" scheduled to be released in January next year.

Yung Lean ft. ft. Kreayshawn - 'Marble Phone' (prod. by Yung Sherman & White Armor)

-First Up! - 15 Oct 13 kl. 20:22

I never bought the Yung Lean-hype Noisy/Vice = FOX and others more or less forced upon the world of music a couple of months ago. Sure, it's lovely in this day and age of modern technology that a unknown 16 year old dude namned Jonatan Leandoer from the south of Stockholm can be hyped into the almost absurd in America with his exotic American adapted raps and still remain pretty unknown here in Sweden. A guy who barley can rap at all for that matter.

Mapei - 'Don't Wait'

-First Up! - 03 Oct 13 kl. 22:47

WELL. FINALLY! Mapei is back from her loooong hiatus from music and I actually love this new single even if I was hoping for some good rap like back in the day.

Gangsta Boo & Sinjin Hawke - 'Yea Hoe' Free DL

-First Up! - 10 Sep 13 kl. 11:35

Next to Bastille's phenomenal cover of Miley Cyrus' 'Can't Stop' from BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge yesterday this collaboration between Barcelona's Sinjin Hawke and Gangsta Boo could be the best music this week has to offer. Just like RBMA wrote when they premiered it: "The pair’s forceful 'Yea Hoe' collaboration succeeds in translating the bare-boned Memphis sound into a club-ready hi-fi hurrah. Built on gloomy vocal wails and big brass, the track is paced with discipline, exploding into a spectacular slice of low-slung orchestral crunk, before giving anyone a chance to take their elbows back down.

Hjältar Mot Sin Vilja - 'Ett Tillfälligt För Alltid' (prod. by Up To No Good)

-First Up! - 20 Aug 13 kl. 21:52

I simply _hate_ Tuesdays, it's the worst day of the week also been in an awful mood all day cause heavy sleep deprivation. Stepped off the bus from work, so stressed that I can't even feel my body, to put it mildly I'm a walking floating head right now. Then I pressed play on this tune and well, let's just say, just like people, a very very few tunes can really get to me _this_ way.

Little Jinder - 'Won't Look Back' (KOKO's Heartbreak Disco)

-First Up! - 31 Jul 13 kl. 17:13

Oh, this was just what the doctor ordered! Studio Barnhus' Kornél Kovács a.k.

Cristian Dinamarca - 'Mamani' off "Svensk Bas Vol. 2"

-First Up! - 25 Jul 13 kl. 20:45

Back in May we saw the birth of Svensk Bas, a new label dedicated to releasing various kinds of bass music from Sweden. Back then they dropped the first volume of their compilation "Svensk Bas Vol. 1" and now Stockholm based DJs/producers Marcus Price, Baba Stiltz, Cristian Dinamarca and Henry Rodrick are back with the follow up: "Svensk Bas Vol.

Linda Pira - 'Bang Bang/Bäng Bäng' Official Video & Single Release

-First Up! - 03 Jul 13 kl. 08:03

Me and bestie used to listen to Linda Pira quite a lot back in the day when she was signed to Ayesha Quraishi's label Aqueen Ent and her sound was completely different, it was reggaeton and latin vibes galore. Today, singed with one of key players in the Swedish hip hop-scene Redline Recordings, she has in a short amount of time managed to make the Swedish hipster-crowd go bananas. A couple of weeks ago fröken Pira finally dropped her debut single "Bang Bang/Bäng Bäng" (cop off iTunes here) and she's probably the only one who can get away with a video where a third of it is captions rolling over the screen like a sad school project presentation.

Azealia Banks ft. Pharrell - #ATM Jam

-First Up! - 02 Jul 13 kl. 16:12

One can say much about Azealia Banks but I love her ruthless ways and lack of manners in world of brown nosing but she's also the perfect example of when signing to a major label isn't all glitter and gold at the end of the rainbow. Azealia was, (just like Iggy Azalea) a way more interesting artist when she was still unsigned and able to do what the fuck she wanted, not getting caught up in the mess of major label power. Yes, dear all a word of advice; Be your own product, own yourself.

Chippy Nonstop - "Finally Verified" EP Release

-First Up! - 26 Jun 13 kl. 18:55

In a world when every song is produced by Mike Will Made It, everyone attempts to twerk with their size 0 ass, getting their ratchet on and Miley Cyrus doing videos that are copy scraped from some old isssue of Vice anno 2004 (while that sad rag still mattered) it's nice to still have something genuine and solid like Chippy Nonstop. Chippy's new EP "Finally Verified" (cop off iTunes here), a title that is a play on album titles like Big Sean's "Finally Famous" is produced by Felix Snow and features 6 tracks (one of them being 'Bang Bang') and collaborations with Kitty Pryde, Metro Zu's Lofty 305, Bukkweat Bill and Pizza Pimp/Chapman.

Lilla Namo - 'Tuggare Utan Gränser' Official Video & Single Release

Lilla Namo's back with her third Up To No Good-produced single 'Tuggare Utan Gränser', a track quite different from her previous singles 'Haffa Guzz' and 'Höj Volymen'. This one is more mellow and comes with a clear political message about integration politics.

Chippy Nonstop - 'Bang Bang' (prod. by Felix Snow) Free DL

-First Up! - 16 May 13 kl. 18:39

Finally, after months of touring Chippy Nonstop is releasing some new music! This track is called 'Bang Bang' and it's best described with the following words: "It's just a fun summer slapper with a lil reggaeton vibe" and I'm pretty sure you'll be singing Papi, can you give it to me / Papi, Imma do it for ya [...] Gimme Gimme Gimme some head [...

Mykki Blanco - 'The Initiation' (prod. by Sinden)

-First Up! - 14 May 13 kl. 09:31

Crazy good production from Sinden on this new track from Mykki Blanco, taken from his upcoming EP Betty Rubble: The Initiation EP" set to drop later this month. My problem with this is the artwork. Don't get me wrong, I love how Mykki plays with gender roles but something has been putting me off lately.

Up To No Good - 'Don't Call' Free DL

-First Up! - 13 May 13 kl. 22:24

D-Mac ft Sage the Gemini & Show Banga - 'Panoramic' Free DL

-First Up! - 12 May 13 kl. 17:42

Besides mutual love, trust and the other shit let me tell you about one of the major cornerstones in mine and bestie's relationship: She bells me, ask me "what's the name of this song???" and, at best, mumbles some words or, "I heard it on the radio/it's featured in this strange video of a kid dancing/someone hummed it", hands me the time it aired or url and cries "I NEEEEED IT FEEELICIAAA". I'm this type of person, I like information, I need to know things and seek information is my forte.

Katy B - 'What Love is Made of'

-First Up! - 11 May 13 kl. 15:37

I loved Katy B's debut album, I loved her free EP "Danger" (download here) but I'm not quite sure about this one to be honest. It's too damn adjusted, feels more tailor made to fit someone like Kylie Minogue rather than lil Baby Katy.

KWAAI - 'Badman' ft. Syster Sol, Driemanskap, Mofeta, Kristin Amparo, Cleo & Kanyi

-First Up! - 11 May 13 kl. 12:56

The fact that Sweden and South Africa is a golden combination when it comes to music collaborations is nothing new, just look at the marriage between Spoek Mathambo and Gnucci and in December last year Sweden's Adam Tensta, Syster Sol, Chords, Cleo, Kristin Amparo, Mofeta & Jerre and Dirty Jens of Sjukstugan travelled to Cape Town to explore it further. The result is Kwaai - a exchange between Swedish and South African hip hop and here goes 'Badman', the first tune that was recorded for the project. 'Badman' is produced by Khosh and features Syster Sol, Mofeta, Kristin Amparo, Cleo and Driemanskap & Kanyi from SA.

DJ Fresh vs. Diplo ft. Dominique Young Unique - 'Earthquake'

-First Up! - 09 May 13 kl. 20:59

Oh remember when Daniel Stein a.k.a DJ Fresh unleashed his massive tune 'Gold Dust' featuring Ce'Cile/Ms.
