Andy Collins

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.

Danish/Italian R&B newcomer Mikala has released her first official video, to her second single - We Got It, and it leaves you feeling good.

Produced by David Mørup, the joyous harmonies, tight R&B riffs and Mikala's assured vocals on this track leaves you feeling optimistic and hopefully. In a world decidedly bereft of uplifting sentiments, it's a delight to hear.

Premiere: EDA WOLF - Rough Terrain

Based in Brooklyn, New York is the Electronic/R&B duo Eda Wolf whose debut single, Slow Speed, had us in raptures.

We weren't alone as it led to critical acclaim amongst independent music lovers who also took to the intricate and compelling vocals of Finnish singer Dea Juris with producer FLWRS (Emiliano Flowerman) smooth synths and beats.

Now the duo returns with their latest single Rough Terrain, and you'll experience an evolving sound with more swing than previous. 
D/troit, Denmark.

For us, Religion can be found at the altar of soul, with its welcoming vibes and a heartfelt connection to all of us. Danish trio Sweatshop has certainly found theirs.

New Religion’ is the title of their new single, released on Good Friday, and it's a funky mix of soul and hip-hop.

Twaine - A World in Change

Soul came from gospel. It was born from suffering and gave heart and hope. In light of the heartbreaking events in our home city Stockholm last week we could all use some spiritual re-connection.

Directly touching at my soul is the single - A Gospel by the Swedish band Twaine.

'A Gospel' was first released on the Japanese compilation album 'We -Songs of Hope-', and all royalties went directly to the people affected by the catastrophe in Fukushima, Japan, 2011. The single also features on their new album - A World in Change.

VIDEO: Baba Soul brings original soul

Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Funk and a hint of reggae combine with Baba Soul and the Professors of Funk in their official debut/video single - If You Love Me.

The charming video introduces us the smartly dressed, dreadlocked singer who sounds like a combination of James Brown and modern soul legend Charles Bradley.

'It's time to be free' sings Charlotte Dos Santos as the single 'Red Clay' draws to an end. It's also an encapsulating description to her incredibly enchanting bond-esque video directed by Marina Oriente.

The Norwegian singer, who we unbelievably once described as shy, takes centre stage and is utter captivating, confident and naked throughout the video for this dreamy single.
