SKWEEEZE ME PLEEEZE ME
Oh those crazy Scandinavians. I accidentally discovered this shit whilst idly surfing the web a couple of weeks ago. 'Skweee' is a sort of hybrid electro/hip hop/grime sound that been bubbling on the Swedish and Finnish underground for a while, centered around two record labels - Flogsta Danshall (Sweden) and Harmönia (Finland). I really like it. Maybe its because I've been listening to so much 'deep/sophisticated' music this past year, but I find Skweee's naively melodic hooks and clunky robo-funk beats really refreshing. You gotta love all those cute 7" singles too. I don't want to make a big deal about it, but for anyone curious to find out more, there's a Dissensus thread, or if you're really serious, get on board at the Nation Of Skweee forum/resource.
