While Brightening the Clouds (WBTC) is the second EP from Embudo. Comprised of Embee and Budo (Macklemore, etc), the duo has been working across the ocean for a few years on this collaborative project. WBTC pushes the boundaries of their first EP, Blue Notes in Full Color, even further. The duo experiments here with textures, contrast, intensity, and beauty in new and surprising ways.
The Embudo project has provided an opportunity for both artists to adopt a new, shared identity by taking risks and exploring beyond the boundaries of anything they’ve done before. Brighten Them Clouds!

“I’ve said if Looptroop wasn’t my band, perhaps I’d be dating it!”
“You know, I’m automatically attracted to music — I just start rapping to it. It’s like a magnet. Just rap. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.. “
“I think the only difference between us and the other bands is that we’re more honest and our songs are more beautiful” /// Supreme LTR

Part 2017 in the never-ending series about our bi-polar nation or Hibernation, where we swing with the pendulum between depression during the dark period, and mania during the short time of light and warmth. As so many times before it’s the music that finally leads the way towards the light at the end of the 9 month long tunnel of darkness, and helps us to break free.
Promoe is back with a banger! Still Bangin is out now on all streaming outlets.
100 miles and running type of vibe on this one. Recorded with Collén up in Sundsvall a couple of years back, echoing of the two most prominent R’s in hiphop.
Trying to capture the stifling feeling of being told to keep doing the same thing you as an artist have left behind a long time ago, and turning that negative feeling into a banging track.
We are very grateful for all the support and appreciation we’ve received over the years. Too easily we forget to give thanks to the people who help us reach our goals. Those who inspired us and continue to inspire us daily!
Hopefully we can return at least some of the love. We simply want to lovebomb everyone who’s fighting the good fight and is bringing something positive into this world.

Blue Notes In Full Color is the culmination of a trans-Atlantic collaboration between Stockholm, Sweden-based Embee (Looptroop Rockers) and Seattle, WA-based Budo (Macklemore). The two met while touring the US together in 2009, became fast friends, and began collaborating together in 2012. Blue Notes In Full Color is a journey through psychedelic tapestries of sound. It is at once expansive and emotional, epic and intimate. It will carry you across genres and into beautifully uncharted territory, and yet is firmly rooted in the Hip Hop background that both of these musicians hold close. It is an experience worthy of headphones and massive systems alike. We love this record, and hope you’ll join us as we dig into Blue Notes In Full Color.
