American Made

Jan 29 2011

Nike Sportswear presents American Made which is a four part documentary series starring Swedish NBA player Jonas Jerebko along with one of Sweden’s most internationally known urban music artists Adam Tensta. This is a film about two young Swedes who are pushing their game to a new level. The documentary also features appearances from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrik Zetterberg, Obie Trice, Ben Wallace, Niklas Lidström and Juan Atkins. The episodes will go live at the Nike Sportswear Sweden Facebook page on the following dates:

26th January – Trailer
31st February – Episode 1
8th February – Episode 2
10th February – Episode 3
15th February – Episode 4

As part of American Made there will also be a basketball tournament hosted by Jonas Jerebko & Adam Tensta on February 18th, 6pm at Munchenbryggeriet in Stockholm. The event sees four teams Cali Crew, Sneakersnstuff, Tres Bién Shop and Shelta Basket pitch both a men and women’s 3-aside team to battle it out on the court to win the chance to travel to Detroit and see Jonas in action. Throughout the evening there will also be live sets and DJ sets from Adam Tensta, Gnucci Banana, Mashup International and DJ Taro & High Life.

We’ve got the latest track from Adam Tensta (who is set to release his sophomore album “Scared Of The Dark” on April 11th, he is also working with Top Billin & DJA on some other exclusives. Stay tuned!) in order to push this extravaganza and it’s an official edit of the recent single “Balloons” (released by our good friends in Finnish premier crew Top Billin) from L.A based dj/producer Them Jeans.

Teufelsleiter

Jan 28 2011

German trio Brandt Brauer Frick whips up a tasty and energyfilled treat with the release of their stunning debut album “You Make Me Real” (released by !K7 Records) which combines the base of drums, strings and pianos from their classically trained past with their techno present. “Teufelsleiter” (which translates to “devil’s ladder”) is the album closer that thumps with timpani beats, glowering tuba and flashes of pizzicato strings.

Last week, Nacey gifted us with a great edit of Outkast’s “Spottieottiedopalicious”, and now he’s got another exclusive jawn for your pleasure.

Tabi Bonney
“seems like the kind of dude who doesn’t really get phased by anything” according to The Fader, and his “seen it all” relaxed drawl makes those kinda thoughts understandable. Nacey expertly throws some shimmering synth and keys overtop Bonney’s rapping, and it sounds like sitting in the sun outside a loft pool somewhere overlooking an entire city, which is to say, very nice.

If you’re intrigued, Tabi recently dropped a free Postcard From Abroad mixtape, flowing overtop of everything from Lykke Li to The Knife.
