There haven´t been that much reggaemusic here at Othersided so let me therefor give you the best at once! Glesbygd´n is a band consisted by 9 musicians from a little village in the far north of Sweden called Arvidsjaur, the name Glesbygd´n is also translated “sparsely-populated area” in english.

They are producing the most perfect rootreggae with a lot of influences from dub, folk and soul mixed up with a beautiful melancholy and sad touch. The leadsinger Arvid has a pretty unic singingvoice and in the new album he is singing in a old swedish dialect called “Arvidsjaurbondska”.

In the song “Áiga ” they have invited a special guest called Simon Issat Marainen who is doing a eyewettening Sami Jojk.

Ohhh time is passing by pretty fast and i´m back to reality and also back to share some music in this blog, i´m soo full of new music in all forms and colours that you did not believe existed!

Also meet many new promising artist that i gonna love to introduce you all to. But first some of the dopest shit i´ve listen too in many years, Daniel Savio who also is the man behind a complete new genre that he calles Skwee and that is a musical style, with origin in Nordic countries Sweden and Finland.

 Skweee combines simple synth leads and basslines with funk, r’n’b or soul-like rhythms, overall rendering a stripped-down funky sound. The tracks are mostly entirely instrumental, though there are exceptions. The name refers to the use of vintage synthesizers in the production process, were the aim is to “squeeze out” as interesting sounds as possible. The video this song is also pretty fuckin´ KOOL!
