Beldina covers Lil Waynes - How 2 Luv

Beldina, who recently signed to Kanye West - G.O.O.D. Management, embraces the LA warmth where she currently resides and continues to produce music full of lush vocals with provocative lyrics.

The Swedish singer caught our ears and eyes attention with a series of sumptuous R&B tracks, an impressive debut EP 'Intermission' and visually compelling videos (What Can I Say, Breathe In, Ocean). The captivating songstress emanates sexual confidence. However, it shouldn't distract you from her mesmerizing vocals. Her recently uploaded single - How 2 Luv, is a perfect reminder.

Feridah Rose brings an uplifting spirit

A warm, feel-good factor emerges through the dark and gloomy global climate with Feridah Roses' new video for the single - Njabala.

The Danish-Ugandan singer combines influences from her roots with modern sounds to produce an uptempo single featuring African rhythms and the singer’s mother tongue, Luganda.

Njabala is the title track from her recently released EP and takes a traditional Ugandan song, but reimagines the lyrics as a call to freedom. It is a hopeful celebratory song about being free to dream and inspire.

Sweedest mix of soul sung in Swedish

Regular visitors to our site may find many of the tracks we feature are sung in English though is not by intention. The Swedes, for example, have been devoted soul and style lovers for years and many excellent tracks are currently residing unloved in vinyl crates. And despite what non-Scandinavians may feel are 'incomprehensible lyrics,' native sung tracks from across the Nordics are just as accessible and enjoyable.

We've discovered a selection of 'old-skool' Swedish sung grooves on Mixcloud compiled by DJ Olof Karlstrand, ’Sweedest Sounds Vol. 24 - Soul På Svenska’, sprinkled with recognisable soul cover versions.

Who knows, by the end of the mix you may also say it's 'Bra.'

The distinct logo design of the Danish band Furns is as recognisable as their sound. In contrast to the logos' sharp edges, the smooth tone of Furns is anything but thorny.

Since 2013, the Danish duo (Monika Faludi and Mathias Dahl Andreasen) has pushed the edges of Nordic soul and pop with their dreamy, 80's influenced, ethereal sound. It's not for everyone. However, many loyal fans (Furnies!), including us, have been drawn in by their soulful vocals and laid back productions.
