A Nation of Skweee

A Nation of Skweee Even though the name sounds like another weird genre invention to generate some digital hype, it’s not. Skweee is actually the name of an obscure genre mix-up of funk, r’n’b, hip-hop and all kinds of freaky 80ies electro sounds and newer glitchy sounds. There has never been a huge blog hype around skwee and the musical style has been around for a few years already, yet it’s influence is becoming ever more pervasive. Maybe that has something to do with skweee’s origin in the cold (and cool) north like Sweden and Finnland. We don’t know.

What we do know is that some of the finest Skweee artists will be in Vienna on Friday night and they will surely make sure you will have one of your best nights out this year. And, if you still have no clue on what kind of music you can expect tonight, listen to this dope track by Melkeveien & Sagtann.

Luckily Scandinavian Skweee has exactly that. In December the – more

10 x 4 – Mesak

November 21, 2011 in Interviews by EB Team

Thanks to founders of the label Laton Anna Ceeh and Franz Pomassl, modern soul musician Mesak has been in town a couple of times now. I’ve always wanted to sit down with him and have a little chitchat about the music he produces, but each and every time one or the other of us was – more
