Despite releasing numerous albums and 12″ vinyls and almost having a legendary status abroad, producer Freddie Cruger (aka Red Astaire) is relatively unkown to the general public here in Sweden (and I have to admit that I heard him for the first time just 1 or 2 years ago) . He released his first 12″ vinyl in 1994 and has worked with artists such as ADL, Desmond Foster, Swing Fly & Linn and has been touring all over the world.
“Running From Love” was originally released as a 12″ on Raw Fusion in 2003 and in 2006 also on the compilation album “Soul Search” which had distribution in USA, England and Australia.
The video was released in february this year so I know we’re a bit late on this but I found out about it today and really thought this deserved some attention. So sit back and enjoy, because this is two legends at their best!
Swingfly is back! It’s been a while since I heard something new from Swingfly (I even heard rumors that he stopped rapping), so I was gladly suprised when I heard of this song (even though I like the video to Tony An‘s original song more). Swingfly has been a part of the Swedish hiphopscene for a long time and for those of you who listen to Swedish hiphop he shouldn’t need any introduction.
The new track is called “Singing that melody” and features Bea on the chorus. The video (which seems heavily sponsored by NeoNode) is directed by Claudio Fransson.
Currently Swingfly’s working on a solo album together with producers/writers such as the Åhlund brothers (Teddybears STHLM, Caesars Palace, Britney Spears etc) , Andreas Kleerup (Robyn, Titiyo, Marit Bergman) and Thomas Rusiak (Mange Schmidt, Petter, Ken).
