I'm a South Londoner now living in Sweden. I'm also a part-time DJ/ founder of Urbanlife Radio and co-founder of Scandinavian Soul. Music has always been my soundtrack to life and although I listen to everything, soul is always in my playlist.
The new single follows on from their superb track - Tropicana. Easy Raider continues to entice fused with a jazzy saxophone and funky ‘70s influenced visuals. The cover artwork is pure class too!
Rufus & Chaka Khan.
Linn & Freddie.
If the third duo is new to you, then we've got a feeling you don't live in the Stockholm or are unfamiliar with the underground soul music scene in Sweden.
And that's why we're here!
Music maestro Freddie (aka Freddie Cruger / Red Astaire) and vocal songstress Linn (Linn Segolson) have released their long-awaited second album - Right Here in the Middle.
We sang the praises of Loidimo's debut track - Thousand Million Times, and we're about to sing them even louder now its matched with a good-looking video.
Directed by Teo Dimitriadis, the well-produced visuals highlight the song's quality, as we see Loidimo witness his lover's betrayal.
Danish folk/soul singer, Emily Simbi, who has Haitian roots, touches on these feelings with her new delicate ballad - Walk with Me.
It's been two years since we first announced new Norwegian R&B duo - tatarius and their track - Questions struck an unforgettable cord and garnered numerous plaudits.
Since then the duo (Axel Toreg Reite and Sindre S. Gjærum) has been hard at work developing their craft in the studio and on the road.
The hard work has paid off, and tatarius has evolved into a full band with a bold new single.
The Stockholm based artist delivers an organic sound blended with cinematic Nordic cool and experimental R&B/Pop production.
'Where the Flowers Grow,' is the second single, which follows her upcoming EP’s first release, 'anymore.'
Fatima - The queen of Contemporary Soul/R&B, continues to reign supreme in sound and visuals with her new single - Somebody Else.
The Swedish singer asks 'how different life would be if she was someone else?' as she switches identities in a creatively styled video, shot on location at the Alexandra Road Estate in Camden, England.
Despite the somewhat 'creepy' looking image, the 'golden boy' represents a more playful side to their R&B flavour.
The lighter sound retains a deep, hypnotic bass, so infectiously good its hard to sit still.
The single is a classic soul-jazz ballad about learning from the past, growing and recognizing what is most important in life.
Benji says 'I wanted to portray a modern take on that old school Ray Charles/Donny Hathaway sound with acoustic strings, brass, and live instruments.'
