The Responda

Recommended Posts

There's a subgenre of electronic music I only recently became aware of, though it's been around since about 2006ish, and it's called skweee... It's origins are in Sweden & Finland, though people are now doing their own takes on it throughout the rest of Scandinavia, Europe, and the U.S. Might be described as a funky electro/hip-hop hybrid, typically without vocals. Kind of hard to pin down in words, and can vary pretty greatly stylistically. As a fan of modern tunes feeling bored with most hip-hop, techno, and the over-rated dubstep, skweee kind of feeds on my love of 80s electrofunk a la midnight starr, etc, but with a super contemporary feel.


I'm diggin it to say the least. Here's some good introductory selections:



Daniel Savio, supposed founder









Melkeveien vs Nino remixed by Slugabed








Randy Barracuda




Boss Kite




lack of skweee on youtube really, had to do lots of blog searching/downloading to get into it.

enjoy, should it appeal to you

That sounds good. Scandinavians typically get it right when it comes to music (Abba being the huge exception).


Are you familiar with chiptunes? I have something like 30,000 of those...there's a lot of filler but the funk is there if you're willing to dig for it.

hmmm no shai, haven't heard of chiptunes but i'll be give some of it a listen later.... this skweee stuff is similar as far as there being a bit of filler, but the funky shit can hit quite hard (without ever seeming to take itself too seriously, which i like about it).


That track by the french Fulgeance that I posted up there is sounding awesome to me, been a couple weeks... At least after the 30 seconds of weirdness.
