Sonny & Cher.
Rufus & Chaka Khan.
Linn & Freddie.

If the third duo is new to you, then we've got a feeling you don't live in the Stockholm or are unfamiliar with the underground soul music scene in Sweden.

And that's why we're here!

Music maestro Freddie (aka Freddie Cruger / Red Astaire) and vocal songstress Linn (Linn Segolson) have released their long-awaited second album - Right Here in the Middle.

We sang the praises of Loidimo's debut track - Thousand Million Times, and we're about to sing them even louder now its matched with a good-looking video.

Directed by Teo Dimitriadis, the well-produced visuals highlight the song's quality, as we see Loidimo witness his lover's betrayal.

New Video: Emily Simbi - Walk With Me

Music doesn’t have to be heavily produced to evoke unbounded emotion and depth. Like a solo church choir singer, the tones don’t need to loud for the verbal echoes to reverb in an inner part of us - a part we call the soul.

Danish folk/soul singer, Emily Simbi, who has Haitian roots, touches on these feelings with her new delicate ballad - Walk with Me.

Shaqdi - Colorless

The warm, soulful tones of Shaqdi, with the assured production of Zagor, has beguiled us since her premiere single and EP, and we continue to be captivated by her.

Her new single - Colorless tells of her desire to escape, composed with an electronic beat while Shaqdi's expresses with song and spoken-word. 

It's been two years since we first announced new Norwegian R&B duo - tatarius and their track - Questions struck an unforgettable cord and garnered numerous plaudits.

Since then the duo (Axel Toreg Reite and Sindre S. Gjærum) has been hard at work developing their craft in the studio and on the road.

The hard work has paid off, and tatarius has evolved into a full band with a bold new single.

23-year-old Swedish singer Mona released her debut single - Gold Baby, and it's a delicate ballad of love lost.

The Stockholm based artist delivers an organic sound blended with cinematic Nordic cool and experimental R&B/Pop production.
