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.
Now, 21-year-old singer/songwriter, AME ARDAI joins this month's notable list.
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.
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.
We have a feeling you're going to see and hear the colourful Norwegian singer in the photo a lot more in 2018 and beyond.
Her name is Farida, and she continues to go from strength to strength.
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.
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.
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.
The duo behind the Newtimers are a shining result of their Swedish musical ancestry demonstrating lyrical skill, flawless composition and the right amount of glitter.
