So I’m still a big fan of this wonderful Micro-Genre called Skweee that got attention for short moment and seems to be dead and forgotten right now … or not? Of course most of the artists are still making music and some (or even most) of them went in other directions, so I guess I’m going to post some stuff that most of the magazines and blogs are not covering … imho it should be pushed more because there’s so much amazing music evolving out of this scene. It’s full of Synthesizers, Weird Ambient, Global Bass, House and more.
Feel free to add new and old stuff you like and want to share too!
- Ya Tosiba: A project by DJ Zuzu and Mesak, where they blend a traditional style from Azerbaijan called Meykhana with modern beats. Check out their album “Love Party”:
“Maşın” is maybe one of may alltime favourites:
- European Music Label has a similar idea, but looks out for different mostly east european sounds. I post some excerpts, check out
- Joxaren, label-boss of European Music, released this wonderful EP with help of Portlands Ausland Schläge:
Synths, Bass, Melodies, Weirdness, Summer Vibes - it’s all in there!
- Center of the Universe is going far more towards house and disco but has also some “global” influences.
Acid Rembetiko is a big one on this nice 7":
But on the flip you find this nice jam:
And the other 12" is even a bit more housier:
btw calling a Maxi-Single “Maxi-Single” is genius ^^
- Andi Otto has a two albums out, where he’s exploring more of India’s music culture:
- Berlin based Karl Marx Land Records are still doing the 7"-thing and it’s still fun listen to the funk!
- … and the head behind Karl Marx Land is doing also some far out modular ambient music: Check out Edition Schulze:
- When it comes to weird ambient: Trauma Trauma is a project from Skweee-inventor Pavan. If you love Synthesizers give this a shoot:
- And then some swedish guys did this wonderful compilation with strange music that is made for children and got nominated for the swedish grammy … uuhm, dunno what happened there … but it’s wonderful, check out the cute weird sound of Beem,
Monolåg and Tvärvägen for example
So long for now. Next post is coming soon I guess.
