AFC — Allied Forces Crew is maybe mostly known for the wide public as being some sort of sidekick(s) to Petter since they have featured several of his joints and been on tours with him during his 10 years career. Most famous is probably the single “Repa skivan” with Petter released 2004. They have also featured other artists like Ison & Fille and Fjärde Världen to mention some.
However, the twins Thabo (aka Smiley) and Ramo started making music allready 1991 in a constellation called “Funk Squad” with DJ A.K and back then they rapped in english. It wasn’t before 2001 they started doing tracks in swedish but they still continous to rap in english as well.
They released their debut album “Varje Dag E Löning” back in 2006 and several issues with the record lead to silence around the twins. But, two months ago they released their great rough street single “Git Sumthin” produced by Dj Large.
And now it’s time for their second single, this one in swedish, called “Inatt” produced by Astma & Rocwell. Both singles are an earnest of their two planned record, one in swedish and one in english which drops this autumn through their own label Slangin’ Records. Hopefully.
A video for “Inatt” is being prepared and you can find some backstage footage from the video recording over at Wonlove.
Yesterday Lazeereleased a video to the track “Pusherman”, taken from his free mixtape “First Class Five Stars”. The track features J-son who will be releasing his third single “My Window” in just a couple of days. The video is directed by Maceo Frost & Oliver Martin Henriquez.
The full video to Petter‘s track “Slag under bältet” (which we wrote about a couple of days ago) is now out and the track is avaliable on iTunes and Spotify. The track is produced by Collén & Webb and the video is directed by Oskar Ljungholm and shot by Niklas Johansson.
Since the release of his greatest hits compilation “X”, Petter has been working on some new material and a couple of weeks ago he wrote about the video-shoot for his upcoming single “Slag under bältet” on his blog . Petter says this about the track himself:
“This is how I want my Hip Hop and Petter to sound from 2009 and forward. Collén and Webb made a great beat that contained that classic old-school vibe that I’ve been missing and searching for”
The official release for the video and track is on Monday but in collaboration with Comviq, Petter is giving you the video and track as a free download today!This offer only lasts until 12.00 on Monday so you have to be quick if you want to get it for free, the only thing you have to do is to type in your phone number and you’ll receive a download link (personally I think I’ll have to wait until monday since my iPhone probably won’t allow me to download it). Petter will also be a guest on Filip & Fredriks Söndagsparty this sunday and will perform it live on the show.
The track is produced by Collén & Webb and the video is directed by Oskar Ljungholm and shot by Niklas Johansson. If you by any chance (like me) go an iPhone the track will be aviliable on iTunes Store and Spotify from moday!
It’s been two years since Storreleased his mix-tape “Dikter ifrån bikten” and since then much has happened. Stor left the group Vendetta to focus on his solo career and has started to work with The Salazar Brothers. He is now also part of the Ayla collective consisting of Mack Beats, Carlito and Mohammed Ali. The last release from Ayla was the critically acclaimed mix-tape “Processen” by Mohammed Ali and now the time has finally come for Stor to drop his album, called “Nya Skolans Ledare”.
The first single from the album, “Stockholmsnatt” featuring Adam Tensta and Danjah, was released in November last year and the album was originally scheduled for release in December last year. So a lot of people have been waiting for this (me included) but it was well worth the wait, Stor and Ayla really proves that they are in fact “Leaders of the new school”. The album is produced by The Salazar Brothers, Mack Beats, Masayada and Ears and it features guest appearances from Adam Tensta, Danjah Fille, Jacco, Mohammed Ali, Petter, Promoe,and Sepideh Vaziri.
It’s been a while since we updated The Salad days and it’s probably going to be a little while until we can start to update it frequently again. The reason for this is because “Niklas”, who I run this blog with, is currently in the middle of moving and I’ve been stuck at work so I haven’t had time or energy to update. After the Holidays I hopefully won’t be stuck at work as much as I’ve been lately and Niklas will be seteled in so that we can start with the frequent updating again.
Since our last post much has happened. I’ve started to write and update Chords homepage (which was once a fan-page that I started when i was 15-16) and I recently joined the hiphop-comunity Whoa’s blog as a writer, which I feel very honored about I just hope that I’ll be able to reach up to the high standards that the writers today manage to keep. Right now I’ve only written the second comment on the review of “Petter – X” but hopefully you’ll see more of me there in the future.
But this blog isn’t supposed to be about me, then nobody would read it. It’s about Swedish hiphop and since our last post so much has happened on the Swedish hiphop-scene that it’s impossible for me to even be able to sum it up! So I’ll just try to give you some of the highlights.
Allyawan (who we’ve written about earlier) has finally released his mixtape “Blu Duk Tales Vol.2″ and it’s smoking! The mixtape is released as a free download on whoa!
Recently Swedish producer Masse released his mixtape “Gott & Blandat #2“ which features some of Swedens greatest MCs right now and Masse really proves why he’s considered one of Swedens best producers. The mixtape is avalible for free through Whoa and as if that wasn’t enough he is, in collaboration with whoa, giving you an early christmas present in the form of “Gott & Blandat #1“. This mixtape was released in 2001 and this is the first time it’s avalible in digital form.
But Masse and Whoa aren’t the only ones giving away early christmas presents! DJ/Blogger/Hip-Hop connaisseur DJ Sleepy is giving away a special Petter X-mas mixtape. The mixtape contains freestyles, rare tracks, remixes, blends and some tracks that didn’t make it to his last full lenght album, “Goddamnit”.
Another early Christmas present comes from Prop Dylan and producer Logophobia in the form of “The Morning After EP”. The EP is released through Kingsize Magazine and Prop Dylan keeps showing why he is one of the most promising MC’s right now! He also recently released a video to the track “Top of the top” which features guest appearances from Promoe and Caribinghi
While I’m on the subject of videos I thought I just post one last thing that’s happened since our last post. The group Movits! who released their debut album “Äppelknyckarjazz” earlier this year (I feel a bit embarassed that I haven’t written about them earlier) just released the video to their third single called “Fel del av gården” and I really dig their jazzy-organic sound! The video is directed by Axel Söderlund
Well I think that’s all I can manage to write in one post, hopefully you didn’t fall asleep while reading it. TSD will take a break (yeah I know we haven’t updated the site anyways, but now it’s officially a break) but we will return after the holidays. We have some ideas that we’ll hopefully realise in 2009 and we’re working on a project together with the very secret blogger Majestic Flow which will hopefully be finished during the first quarter of 2009!
Until then TSD wishes you a Merry christmas and a Happy New year!
Boomerangfilm AB has done it again. Another great music video, and this time for Petter’s new track “Min Click” feat Kihlen from Snook. This is probably one of the best music videos this year, and I do think Petter resumed it pretty well on his own at his blog some weeks ago:
Det kommer en video nästa vecka och blir den som jag misstänker så har vi en klassiker på G.
Also, check out Peldawg’s remix “Peldawgs Bogart On The Dancefloor Remix” here!
Petter, one of Sweden’s hip hop veterans recently released a banger, the music video for “Goda Dagars Magi”. The track is taken from his last album “God Damn It” which was released last year and the beat is based on Embassys “It Pays to belong”. The video is produced by Boomerangfilm.
