Since im living in sweden i am only alive for about five months of the year. Spring and a the precious few months of endless summer. The sun never sets, people are happy beatuiful and very very very rich. The rest of the time we either sleep, die, drink vodka and vote for the social democratic party. The times of warm weather, blue skies and summer are materielized in this remix of Magnus Ugglas massive banger 'Sommartid' done by scandinavias hottest dj-duo 'Just Like Music'. These guys are going to bl0w the scene in a short while, lets just say that jönköping is the new bergen. Neo-disco comes from the heart of depressed norsemen, dont ever forget that my friends.
I seriously hate the didgeridoo, but that is mainly because the only time you hear one in scandinavia is when som bummed out backpacker is playing one whilst wearing only a scarf he bought while beeing on a spiritual mission in Goa. When real australians play it sounds dope, DOPE I TELL YOU! Wilcannia Mob is a group of kids age 9 to 12 from the godforsaken dump of Wilcannia, Australia. One day while fishing, watching jacki chan movies and swiming in the lake they met hiphop producer Morganics who put togehter this awsome track with the kids. The beat is seriously one of the best beats iv'e ever heard! Who knew that the didgeridoo and a guy beatboxing could be so fly? Anywas, the kids rap about real stuff, like fishing, walking on stylts and playing didg! DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS ONE!
Rember indie? Well i don't, apparently it was something white guys did to make smart girls sleep with them. Today smart girls only want to sleep with two men in the entire world (diplo and spankrock, sad but true) and that has apparently made som indie-rock dudes from the past pretty f**ked up. One of them started to ramble about white people, syncopated beats and rasiscm. Well Dear Nora & Casiotone For The Painfully Alone has made the best indie track EVVER! A cover of Missy Elliots hot boyz that is oozing of cocaine, booze, bad drugs, bad clubs, guns and f**king + other things that indie-kids hold close to their hearts.
Following up the theme of swedish beatbased music with a tendency to depression, i found it suitable to post this Organism 12 & T.R track. On a banging beat they rap about beeing dirt poor, not having money enough to pay your rent and beeing a not so sucessfull rapper. The orignal track by swedish rapper petter is all about bling, rims and v-power gasoline, living in sweden such themes seems pretty far fetched for your average norse-man... Anywas this is another great non-american track so dl and enjoy!
So you thougt that us swedes had moved on from the suicidal days of Ingemar Bergman, you thought that the fact that 60% of all internet traffic in Sweden is file sharing has made a bit less prone to kill ourselves? Well you thougt wrong, nowadays we still want to kill ourselves, but we want to do it to a funky electornic beat inspired by bailefunk an booty bass. Thats right, the swedish hiphop/electo/drug-madness group Las Palmas has made the most Swedish song since Ulf Lundells massive hit "Öppna Landskap". This banger is all about taking your own life, feeling shitty, cold weather and dark winters you dont know if you want to shake your ass or hang your self when you listen to it. As a swede it is pure bliss!
swedish grime? eurocrunk? pretty dope if you ask me!
