The Persian Prince and I have no idea who Lorentz and Sakarias are, but we both agree that this low-fi (bordering on acoustic) hip-hop track is dope as hell. We’re both pretty sure it is in Swedish since they refernce Stockholm, and the language is definitely rhyme-friendly.
Check out Discobelle for the video that we ripped the track from.
I’m not totally convinced that these are seperate songs, but they’ve got different titles and they come from different editions of The Blue Walrus‘ great Clap to the Electricity compilations.

According to their MySpace page, they’re also from Sweden. Is everyone from Sweden these days?
In other news, I’ve now got a Myspace page myself, and a Twitter account. Awesome.
Maybe it is because I’m 1/4 Swedish, but from Snus to Espen, I love all things Scandinavian. It’s like there is something in the water over there that just makes stuff perfect and clean and beautiful.
It’s like I knew Lykke Li was Swedish the first time I heard her. Mostly, I can’t get enough of her song Little Bit (in all its remixed glory) but her other stuff is also pretty sweet.
Toronto Life says she’ll be at the moddy on October 24 and that tickets are $15. All the cool kids are going.

Check out Lykke Li’s MySpace account or buy some of her songs on iTunes. Amazon even has her sweet little album “Youth Novels.” The Hype Machine has some more tracks from her.
If you still aren’t convinced, check out how gorgeous the video for Little Bit is and see if you don’t fall a little bit in love with her, too:
