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.

D/troit, Denmark.

It's time that started showing on Google maps and marked as the place to find one of the finest soul bands in Scandinavia.

Susanne Ørum sings a soothing Lullaby

It's April, and you can feel spring in the air, even if it snowed here in Sweden! The feeling of warmer days radiates at least from the new single - Lullaby for Lou by Susanne Ørum.

Sweatshop find new religion over Easter

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.

Rohey - A Million Things

Sold out gigs, high praise from Jamie Callum, and a five-star review in the Norwegian newspaper Dagsavisen confirm what we already knew - Rohey is different, exciting and a band you should know.

The Norwegian quartets exquisite, jazzy-soul tracks have impressed since their debut, and the first compilation of their music can now be found in a strikingly designed, 12-track album - A Million Things.

Public Secret won't be a secret for long

The debut single from Copenhagen-based future soul band, Public Secret - Tears (To Water Her Roses) is the first beacon to what we feel will become a shining soul light.

Inspired by the sounds of Bilal, Andersen Park, Frank Ocean, D'Angelo and Thundercat, Tears (To Water Her Roses) is a beautifully titled, lyrically engaging track. Deftly produced by Lush Reality, the tight soulful rhythm builds to a dynamic and passionate crescendo. 

Released with the digital track is a creative music video, filmed and directed by band members Ölle Häggberg and August Campeotto. In the video hooded lead singer Bobby Bovell (who we discovered as a solo singer) meanders against the backdrop of Copenhagen's futuristic urban architecture.
