While I like to question the concept of remix albums or at least consider them a bit old-fashioned, I’m also happy to see our podcast debutant Swede:art getting the remix treatment from so many artists I like.
Tokimonsta and Kidkanevil were fellow students at the RBMA 2010, Andreas Saag (of Swell Session fame) and Aroop Roy are still familiar names from the heydays of broken beat, and you’ve surely read about Ishfaq, Devonwho or Sam Irl on this place before.

Quite a varied selection of styles can be found on this one, which can only mean that new audiences will discover the sound of Swede:art – and that’s what it’s all about. You might have heard some of these, like the B. Bravo remix which made it on Gilles Peterson’s radio show the other week. I’ve linked up some more tracks, but for a listen to the whole album head over Tokyo Dawn website.
The digital release is already available, a CD will follow on October 21, 2010.
