Oslo based production/dj duo Loveless (Eirik Tillerli and Filip Kollsete) might have only released one official EP but they have already managed to gather both domestic and international attention with frequent rotation on Norwegian national radio, featured on BBC Radio 1 Xtra’s “Record of the Week” along with support from big blogs such as Earmilk, Complex UK, Hypetrak and Selected.
They’re now gearing up for a busy end of the year starting with today’s release of new melancholic, housed up dance pop single “Bad 4 U” which features the vocal offerings of Stockholm based artist Awa (who won the Swedish X-Factor at only 15). She then finished school, released two singles – the latest one called “Obvious” which got attention in the UK. Loveless tells us: “We loved her song ‘Obvious’ and her voice, so we contacted her on a trip to Stockholm. We loved the vibe with her and [songwriter] Leslie Tay, and “Bad 4 U” is a result of that.”
The best and baddest crew here in Sweden – Respect My Hustle – had a huge party at Nobelberget in Stockholm this past weekend. Check out this video for 2 hours from the party of what looks like all out epicness.
Malmö based artist Leslie Tay started out at a young age and then dropped out of the music business for a few years before re-emerging last year as one of the most interesting acts on the modern Swedish r’n’b scene, his new mixtape “Skisser & SMS 2” should be on constant rotation for the remainder of 2016.
