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.
Historically, this precious metal has always been desired due to its relative rarity and attractive colour.
Fittingly, the cover artwork of Danish soul singer Nanna.B new EP Golden* does indeed look desirable as it gleams in pure golden hues.
Now based in LA, does Nanna's five-track EP contain any musical nuggets within this shiny exterior?
The EP’s title track features the lyrical prowess of rapper Hodgy and finely tuned production of Grammy-nominated producer Anderson .Paak.
Danish soul singer, Nanna B, sits amongst an ever-growing number of artists at the forefront of the resurgence of soul music in Scandinavia.
Her unique sound, style and superb debut album Vitaphone, stamped the core of belief in us that soul music was still burning in Nordic artists hearts. And years later Nanna continues to burn brightly!
Currently residing in LA, Nanna, who early this year teased us with her sublime single - Beaches, now releases a full length video and single titled ‘Where is the $$$?’.
Danish singer Nanna.B continues to feed us a steady stream of quality tracks as she explores and develops her experimental soul sound.
Following on from her short but so sweet release 'Prayers' is 'Beaches'. Beaches is the first track to emerge from her self-produced EP, LAPIS — described as an ode to femininity.
Released by Akashik Records as a 7-inch single is the track, Akasha, which features the highly creative, visual and musical artist Nanna B.
Out now is the debut album Ceremoni by Danish DJ/producer Kriswontwo. The 12-track album features a range of upcoming and established artists such as; Liv Lykke, Skyloo, Billow and Nanna B.
It’s been a while since we last heard from Danish singer Nanna.B. She seemed to have all but disappear from the music scene after she left us literally cradling her superb debut album Vitaphone, featuring tracks like “Sum O Sometimes” and “People”. Since then, she’s travelled frequently to L.A. to work on new projects with a range of exciting producers.
Now she’s returned with a new single, produced by her, and it teases as much as it pleases.
Tomorrow Comes Early is the first compilation release from the Copenhagen based label Green Shades Music. The selection features tracks from GSM artists such as Nanna B and Lord Akton, but also introduces some new faces.
