I just left an amazing SXSW festival spending most of the time with the cream of the crop in Swedish hip hop. Sweden is mostly known for the melancholic twee-pop in courtesy of talents such as El Perro Del Mar, Jens Lekman, Jose Gonzales and many more. But there is a whole lot more to discover from this northern country.
The Swedish hip-hop scene is blasting! So much impressive talents to discover!
For all you west coast chicks I strongly recommend you to hit one of 2 Swedish hip-hop showcases this week.
