Tweet Curiosity killed the cat and never being one to shy away from death-defying acts, I'm curious as hell as to why this new jj track featuring Ne-Yo is censored. Anybody know? It's whatevs. Released as the penultimate single on Adult Swim's Singles Series Ne-Yo sent this track to Adult Swim who subsequently sent it along to jj who obviously had to add some magic to it. It kinda reminds me of something from Young Galaxy 's latest album [...]
Here's a new track by Sweden's dark pop upstarts jj. The track "We Can't Stop" employs Ne-Yo. The song was commissioned by Adult Swim's Adult Swims Singles Program. And unlike their song "Ecstasy" which was a cover of Lil' Wayne's "Lollipop" this is a pure original. Incorporating the moody ambiance the duo creates and their [...]
It's no secret I'm a fan of the music that comes out of Sweden. I mean Ace Of Base were shady Satan worshipers I recently learned. What's cooler than that? The electronic-pop duo jj from Sweden have linked up with one of R&B's best artists, Ne-Yo , for their track included on the Adult Swim Singles Program. "We Can't Stop" is reminiscent of an 802s track in the start and then around the 3:00 mark Ne-Yo comes on to make it sound like something that could actually get play on modern radio. I will expect a more upbeat remix [...]
The Adult Swim Singles series throws corporate dollars at indie artists in a cash-for-cred swap that has, to its credit, yielded some memorable collabs. Last year around this time it was Washed Out thrown in the mix with Chairlift's Caroline Polachek , offering a female-fronted Brooklyn indie-pop twist to his South Carolina chillwave template. This year's version swaps gender roles and goes further afield with its geographic and socio-cultural mesh: Sweden's eternally chill, hip-hop obsessed balearic pop duo jj swapping spit with Arkansas-born R&B chart-topper Ne-Yo. It's here: Read More...
Tweet This is 100% true: at university, I was officially designated a Sexy Voiced Person. What this meant was that I got to do the voice-over for the student radio station idents. Since most of you probably never heard those, I hope you'll humour me and imagine, for the rest of the post, that I sound like a cross between Sean Connery and the Old Spice guy. I may not actually sound like that. Okay, with that piece of house-keeping out of the way, [...]
Via jj's blog and the always mysterious Sincerely Yours record label comes a new special club track featuring Elin Kastlander (from jj). As always jj graced us with a crystal clear message with the song: KEEP WRITING! KEEP FIGHTING! KEEP IT REAL! KEEP IT PURE! AND THIS IS WHAT YOU GET IF YOU MESS WITH US MP3: spêcial club: CELEBRIS
Last month jj gave us “no one can touch us tonight” & “ice” to celebrate Spring (and life). This time it's "Celebris," a song apparently celebrating everything: "Thank you for your answers, for your prayers, your love, everything. You the best! Keep writing! Keep Fighting! Keep it real! Keep it pure! This is what you get if you mess with us." What we get is another soporific slow-danceable gem, this time with male/female vocal tradeoffs: Read More...
Spêcial Club : Celebris - MP3 Un MP3 posté sur le blog de jj d’une track appelé Celebris avec les vocals d’Ellin, évidemment, ça sent jj à plein nez, d’autant que le duo suédois avait promis un n°4 pour le 21 juin et qu’on l’attend toujours… Mais il s’agit en fait d’une nouvelle sortie chez Sincerely Yours . So it was [...]
Tweet New jj has been a long time coming, especially if you're a die hard fan that is, but in the run-up to their new album "jj nº43 which was apparently supposed to have come out last week but didn't, and now I hear people saying August, this is the first taste of said new music. Where'd it come from? they posted the WAV file on their blog and thanks to the observant The Road Goes Ever On , it's now here for [...]

Tweet This post is a "QuickPick". QuickPicks are my attempt at getting all of the music that's sent to me that I like (or just music I like but have no words for because it's so awesome), out into the dubya dots. Any time I get sent music that I like I "star" it in Gmail and then go back and listen to it a day later. If it's still as good as it [...]

You may remember back in January when we wrote about the Swedish electro-pop stylings of jj and their Kills mixtape which featured Elin Kastlander singing over the most popular hip hop jams of the moment. The duo is back, announcing the release of two new mp3s, "no one can touch us tonight" and "ice," which are about as blissed-out (and unlike Kills ) as you can get. The news comes via their label, Sincerely Yours : YOURS0164 no one can touch us tonight [...]
You know how I know it’s going to be a particularly sunny day today? Because I listened to this new single from jj this morning. Not that I have some superstitious belief in some mystical powers bequeathed by MP3s that are sprinkled with tropical magic and majestic allure, but I know that everything is going to go my way today. jj - No One Can Touch Us Tonight.mp3
