When I think of Sweden, I tend to remember the amazing electro-pop or folk pop that its residents have given us in the past. Busu, a rising artist from Stockholm, quickly subverts our expectations with his forward-thinking alt hip hop and rock. Roiling guitars and gritty “mumble rap” vocals (which are so in right now) endow his new single ‘Hate bein sober’, a brilliant take on Chief Keef’s Hate Being Sober, featuring 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa. It’s a languid drawling track that perked our ears immediately and had us urgently rifling through his past releases with much giddy excitement. You can stream more of Busu’s music on Soundcloud, here, but we’re tacking on ‘Please stay out of my personal space’ produced by Dj Haydn & Teo Sweden below, too, for another prime example of this guy’s talent. You can also watch Busu’s video for ‘Hate bein sober’ below. More original music will be arriving soon.
