DLX Entertainment has just released the first episode for their own web tv “DLX Tv”. Interviews with Form One and Astma about their upcoming album “Behind Blue Eyes” and shout outs from a bunch of swedish rappers; Adam Tensta, Million Stylez, Daniel Adams-Ray (Snook), Maskinen, Promoe and Embee from Looptroop Rockers, Allyawan, Ken Ring and Paragon.
And for some reason we did not write about the mixtape “A New Season (the prequel mixtape)” which was released a week ago.
“Put your hands down, you ain’t ready for the riot!”
I read about this track a while ago, but the article just said that they’re going to make a remix and not when they would release it. I still don’t know if it’s officially released but i found this on the internet so i though why not put it up. The original is dope but the remix is smoking! Everyone does a great job and ADL shows why he’s still one of swedens greatest MC’s and it was a long time i heard Timbuktu rap like this in english!
Update 2008-03-25: According to P.O.P.E records this version is in fact an unfinished version that has leaked, it’s not mastered and the mixing is incomplete. Since this track already been widely spread I’m going to keep it on the site but you should be aware that this do not represent how the finished version will sound. Hopefully the real version will be released soon!
Kihlen, who might be mostly know as a rapper in the group ”Snook” and for the mega-hit “Alla som inte dansar är våldtäktsmän”, is planning on releasing a solo album. According to an interview with “TT Spektra” he feels that it’s time for him to take some more credit for what he’s done since a lot of people don’t realise that he’s not only a great rapper/writer but also a great producer. For example he was the producer behind “Petter“s hit “Goddamnit”, he has produced most of “Snook”s music and now he’s also written lyrics for “Veronica Maggio“s new album.
Even though nothing is recorded yet he says that the sound of the album will be nothing like the hiphop he does with “Snook” and “Maskinen” and he says that the album will probably feature a lot of song instead of rap. I’m really looking forward to see what the project will end up like, but if you think about what Kihlen has achieved so far the result can’t be anything but great!
