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.

August means we are now eight months into 2016 and you know what…we’re still smiling.

A world where people of all colours, backgrounds and countries unite and together they make harmonious magic. And it’s all right here on scandinaviansoul.com.
We should start by saying that we’re backtracking here as we re-visit May 23, 2016 for the release of Swedish artist Buster Moe’s single/video - Shoot me.
