jj are Joakim Benon and Elin Kastlander and they certainly live up to the old adage “them Swedes sure know how to make a catchy tune”.
“Still” which uses the main loop of Still D.R.E by Dr DRE is taken from their “Kills” mixtape, released December 2010.
The Kills mixtape is a pop laden sampling of the likes of MIA, Notorious B.I.G, and other various entities of the hip hip world but doesn’t do much to represent Elins amazing voice and utilises auto-tune far too much.
Try and get hold of their first album ‘jj n° 2’. Which is nothing like the mixtape.
Looking forward to them touring the globe soon. They seem like a fun arty bunch.
The video below is for their latest release. Love the song. Not sure about the video.
Listen to ‘Still’ here jj – still (sorry no video )
