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.

The eternal food and sex theme, this time chopped up raw by The Vegan Dictator. Promoe bends over backwards to serve you the most tongue twisting lyrics your taste buds had in a long while, to go along with the juicy fresh beats produced by Collén. Bon appetit!

We all go through heavy periods in life when everything feels dark and miserable. But “after rain comes the sunshine”. Sweet describes the feeling of freedom and harmony that fills us when everything finally falls in place. The moment when we begin to feel strong and look forward to everyday life again. Ayla reflects on this great feeling and how much music and melodies are brightening life.

Promoe & Embee – Run Deep is out now!

Inspired by the Sahara and Palestine marathons, whose slogans are ‘I run best when I run free’ and ‘Right to movement’ respectively.
This is running on a spiritual level, deep into yourself. Running on a social level, for everyone’s right to movement, across all borders. For everyone’s right to freedom.
