Deech

Premiere: Deech Mixtape (Tallinn Music Week Edition)

Mar 29, 2015

It’s our last day here in Tallinn. We’re feeling a bit melancholy at the thought of leaving it behind (who wouldn’t?) but at least we have one last mixtape. The sounds are brought to you by hip-hop artist and Tallinn Music week participant Deech. If this doesn’t get you moving, you’re even more jetlagged than we are. Listen below.

Polkov

Premiere: Polkov Mixtape (Tallinn Music Week Edition)

Mar 27, 2015

Austrian band Polkov deals in glam—so it makes sense that their Tallinn Music Week inspired mixtape would feature the likes of Queen, Madonna, and Echo and the Bunnymen.

“Due to our time's aspiration for omnipresent supervision and because of the restrictive politics in our hometown Graz, we once played a live set made up entirely of cover songs from the year 1984,” the band explains. “This mixtape is more or less the recreation of the setlist.”

Jennie Abrahamson

Premiere: Jennie Abrahamson Mixtape (Tallinn Music Week Edition)

Mar 26, 2015

In honor of her upcoming Tallinn Music Week performance, Swedish singer/songwriter Jennie Abrahamson made us a mixtape celebrating her country. She calls it, appropately enough, Swedish Awesomeness.

“I'm often asked what it's like to be an artist from Sweden, and especially Stockholm, and be part of the incredibly strong pop scene we have here,” says Abrahamson of her mixtape. “The answer is yes—Sweden's small and all that, and there's killer competition, but all the fantastic music that's being made around me is more than anything an incredible source of inspiration. I have such gifted friends and colleagues, and for that I'm forever grateful. I could've easily compiled a list of 100 favorite songs, but I narrowed it down and chose a bunch that I thought would go well together. Some old, some new. Some artists well-known outside of Sweden, some not so much. They're all great. Deportees, Nina K and Ane Brun have new and great albums coming out this year, look out for that! Amason, Winhill/Losehill and Linnea Olsson just released new material. And yeah, I threw one of mine in there too—“Entity”—the unofficial title track of my upcoming album Gemini Gemini. Hope you'll enjoy this list!

Cirkl

Premiere: Cirkl Mixtape (Tallinn Music Week Edition)

Mar 25, 2015

Cirkl make dreamy soundcapes and dig Goat, Amen Dunes, and Shabazz Palaces. Check out the Estonian/Swedish duo’s mixtape below.

“I picked out these songs because every single one of them has IT—meaning that I can imagine myself running around in an imaginary landscape while shouting, ‘Yes, yes, yes!’ and also because I think this variety of styles kind of sums up my thoughts on how I see my own music,” says band member Liis Ring. “At Tallinn Music Week I will be playing two concerts with very different sets—as different as some of these pieces are from one another—and having that in mind I've added two yet unreleased cirkl demos that represent those separate directions.”
