Albin Lee Meldau
Based in
Sweden, Gothenburg
Style

All of a sudden it was simply there, the deep, bluesy voice. The sort of voice that cuts through noise and demands you listen. But of course, a voice like that can’t just come straight out of nowhere. As a son of an eminent Swedish jazz singer, Albin Lee Meldau has been singing retro pop classics at weddings, bars and on the streets of his hometown for the better part of his 27 years. He was also one of the two vocalists in Swedish soul band The Magnolia for many years.

With his first attempts at a solo career, Albin Lee Meldau was right on target: the ...

Behind View is 20-something rapper Juuso Ruohonen and producer Joonas Laaksoharju. The Finnish duo are only starting out in their home country but have already played sold-out gigs in Berlin....
Trupa Trupa
Based in
Poland, Gdansk
Style
Trupa Trupa combines dirty guitar sounds with the psychedelic twists of the 60s and 70s. They sound as if they were the product of a meeting between Sonic Youth and the Beatles, as their stifling, grinding style doesn’t interfere with catchy melodies. They've proven that their unusual, somewhat difficult sound could attract and be appreciated by a broad audience. The quartet, formed in Gdansk, has also received many awards, reinforcing the belief that even in the 21st century, we still need ragged guitar riffs, accompanied by melodic vocals, the main hallmarks of Trupa Trupa. Since releasing its Doors-inspired debut, Trupa Trupa has remained ...
