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.

Human contact, love and loss are emotions we can all connect to.

Swedish R & B singer Janice eloquently and passionately expresses her feelings in her new single - Answers.

Almost six years ago her father committed suicide.

The shock, trauma and grief of this tragic event are expressed in her brave words and vocals.

Neoholics return with an apt cover version

We haven’t heard from the Neoholics since 2015 and so its a welcome return for this Swedish band. The Neoholics drew immediate attention with their debut single, a Neo-soul/R&B cover version of Pharrell Williams - Happy and several funky follow up tracks.

Now the band return to their crate-digging selections to produce their own version of the single - Apparently Nothing (1991) by UK band Young Disciples.

Saint Cava display the art of the CD

Who says CD’s are dead?

The Danish duo, Saint Cava demonstrate that the silver disc is still a thing of beauty in their latest single / video - No Ones God.

Spinning as if by magic, and displayed as a piece of art, the ‘retro’ disc may be the focus of the video by Kristoffer Moth, but it's Saint Cava's sound that keeps you fixated.

Contrary to what you may have thought, our understanding of all Scandinavian languages such as Danish, isn’t as good as we’d hope, however it doesn’t stop the SSoul team from enjoying the broad selection of native Nordic sung soulful tracks.

A fine example of this is the single/video - Charter by Danish band ‪DoktorDoktor‬, released in December 2016. Despite us not understanding a single word, the soulful, mellow vibe translates into a really enjoyable track.

New year, new me!

Or so the saying goes but we all know how hard it is to stick to resolutions.

Well, Swedish artist/producer Daniel Rosenholm definitely means it, and the artist previously known as Dubious Quip, launches 2017 under his own name and with a new video/single - It's Gonna Be Alright.

Adée adds soul to Miss Right

There’s simply no stopping Adée.

In 2016 the Swedish singer from Kalmar toured the US, returned to Sweden to feature on Beat Funktions album - Green Man, and still found time to release one of the best albums of the year - Addicted (review coming soon).

Now the singer re-works one of her favourite songs, Miss Right by Anderson .Paak and adds her soulful vocals, with production by David Ekströmer. The result is yet another excellent example of the versatility and competency of this young and exciting soul-hop singer.

Launching the new year in new style is the Prince of Scandinavian Soul, Bernhoft, whose musical style has developed and should we say, matured, over the past few months. Always regarded as a highly skilful and entertaining performer, the grammy nominated singers' new single - Visceral is an electronic /organic composition combining elements of soul, R&B and pop.
