Regular visitors to our site may find many of the tracks we feature are sung in English though is not by intention. The Swedes, for example, have been devoted soul and style lovers for years and many excellent tracks are currently residing unloved in vinyl crates. And despite what non-Scandinavians may feel are ‘incomprehensible lyrics,’ native sung tracks from across the Nordics are just as accessible and enjoyable.
We’ve discovered a selection of ‘old-skool’ Swedish sung grooves on Mixcloud compiled by DJ Olof Karlstrand, ’Sweedest Sounds Vol. 24 – Soul På Svenska’, sprinkled with recognisable soul cover versions.
Who knows, by the end of the mix you may also say it’s ‘Bra.’
Check out his Swedish reggae (Sweggae), Boogie and Disco selections too!
*Bra (SWE) = Good (not ladies undergarments)
