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.

From the country with the unique and beautiful fjords emerges new Norwegian singer Amanda Kamara with her debut soulful/pop single - Limbo

The track introduces us to her organic sound as she makes her first official release for a global melomaniac* audience.

With her own music, and in her own words Limbo expresses Amanda's feeling of being unable to escape from the situation she's in.
After a period of relative quiet, Swedish producer Red Astaire (aka. Freddie Cruger) knows how to make an entrance.

Best known for a number of killer tracks such as; Follow Me, Running From Love, and his collaborations with Linn (Waiting for Spring), the hugely admired producer has returned with the soulful vocals of American singer, Coco Rouzier and worked his magic.

The result is stunning, sublime and mesmerising mellow.

It's an immediately captivating sound that will transport you to a stylish bar with an ice-cold cocktail and thoughts of a lost love.
Former deep house producer, Jonathan Ryno tries his hand on the other side of the mixing desk and releases his debut single - Bluff & Båg, today.

With a hint of humour, Bluff & Båg (basically, means - Bogus) is soul-ish in tone, laid back and smooth. We're stating the obvious but this Swedish sung track feels Swedish too, and we can imagine Swedes singing along with the catchy chorus.

Listen and win on our fifth birthday!

Happy 5th Birthday to us!


Where did that time go?

To be honest, we lost track too. Guess we're having too much fun!


Yes, we're five years old! Wahooo! In March 2012 our website scandinaviansoul.com launched. The idea was to create a window and platform for soulful artists throughout Scandinavia, and looking back at all the stunning tracks we've been able to bring you we couldn't be happier.


Norwegian band D’Sound are celebrating 20 years in the music business. This in itself is a notable achievement, but the trio's consistently high level of soulful/pop grooves is also something to celebrate.

They continue their successful career with an instantly enjoyable groove filled release 'If you Don't Know' which debuted on Norwegian TV2.

VIDEO: Black Dylan - Get Up Child

Hangovers.

You know the feeling.

If not, imagine a parade of Elephants playing football with your brain while trying to solve a cryptic crossword!

Humour has never been far from the dynamic Danish duo Black Dylan either. In their latest video Record players float through the air, and multiple versions of the band appear while singer Wafande tries to regain his composure after a night of indulgences.

The black and white video for this cool soulful track - Get Up Child fits the song's theme perfectly.

Live or recorded, Norwegian band Rohey are jazzy, soulful, daring and utterly captivating.

In a recently posted video, we see a live performance of their second single - I Found Me, at Rockefeller, Oslo in front of a packed crowd.

I'll never get used to being on the other side.

The interrogated instead of an interrogator.

Anyone would think I don't like being interviewed. I do, and in the capable hands of Fabian Hansen, it's also fun.

I just feel so awkward!

Pomona Dream land with Def Sound

From another galaxy, another time and another space the intergalactic, future soul duo, Pomona Dream (SWE), return to Earth with a new single - Limbo featuring US rapper Def Sound.

Since the launch of their debut single - The Box (2015) and the splendid debut EP Rainbow Milk (2016), the experimental, 80’s style of Pomona Dream has quickly become instantly recognisable.
On this new musical journey their spacey electronic vibes and Sandra’s’ soulful vocals, blend perfectly with Def Sounds smooth, poetic rap.
