Moskowitz & Katja Welner - Tasting Minds

If you go down to the woods today, you'll never know what you'll find.

With a torch in hand, we head out during the cold, dark, winter months in an exploration of warm, soulful vibes in the Nordics, and it's always a delight to stumble across tracks that will cause us to sit down and pause.

Tasting Minds by Moskowitz & Katja Welner is such a track.

Introducing - Luxe For Fun (UK/DK)

Rules are meant to be broken, though we don't recommend using this as an excuse to a Judge.

However, we're about to break one of our own rules by including a debut single by duo Luxe For Fun - despite neither artist/musician hailing from these Scandinavian shores!

In our defense, your honor, their music was recorded in the excellent DeltaLab Studio, Copenhagen.

Bishat rounded off 2017 in style

Swedish artist, songwriter and producer Bishat, released a remixed single - Under My Skin in the closing days of 2017 and it's also a perfect start for 2018.

As we wish all our readers a very happy new year, the single, inspired by R&B legends like Brandy and Toni Braxton, reminds us of the past while exciting us to the future. 

Swedish singer Klara Kazmi's new single addresses the serious issue a lot of women have sadly been the victim of - Dick Pics.

Beverly Girl brings back the 80’s - Automatic

Tis the season to be Jolly!

Finnish band, Beverly Girl's new single might not be Christmassy, but it sure lifts the spirits all the way to the dance floor.

'Automatic' is the bands first cover version and hears them breath new life into a Millie Scott soul gem.

Esther Kirabo (SWE) - Kill U

We just discovered a new Swedish singer, and if her single - Kill U is anything to go by, then we are listening to the next Seinabo Sey, Sabina Ddumba and the first and only Esther Kirabo.

Esther may be a fresh name on the scene, but we don't think she'll be a newbie for long.
