jj - vi (young eagle remix)

About a week ago I had a dream.

A dream that I forgot until just now.

    The sort of dream that I dream about.

Young Eagle reworks jj’s VI. Jesper adds that magic to the mix. Look for it in the night sky. Great new things are coming soon from this young Swedish producer that never seems to come up short.

The sun dips towards the horizon but the deep red of day lingers on our rippled pond. Two logs on the fire, They crackle then pop. Sitting there until the fire dies, we never concede our shadows to the night or the new moon— only the echo of the wind.

jj - High Summer

Your best friends, Elin, Joakim

Here to let you know everywhere we wanna go.

I’m exhausted,  barely breathing, holding on to what I believe in.

This feeling, no ceilings

guided me back home

To my zone, 

to my throne in my Rome.

 People wanna talk but they ain’t sayin’ nothing

Oh baby, now I’m ready for something

And I got cameras in my face

I guess the revolution will be televised.

And I got 23 years of this

I just hope you’ll miss me a little when I’m gone


Back again with my mind on one thing

But you don’t wanna know

you just wanna hear me sing


Children behave

that’s what they say when we’re together

Vi måste härifrån

Den här stan drar ned oss till botten av ån.

jj is back with your summer soundtrack. Elin and Joakim’s five-track free EP high summer is available, as always and forever, over at Sincerely Yours and below. 

Like the Zlatan, they soar— always wanting more.

jj - Beautiful Life

jj returns.

It has been too long.

Longing for life.

Doers never die.

Where the sunshine hits our eyes.

It’s a beautiful night.

To live our

Beautiful Life.

Out May 8th on Sincerely Yours, jj nº 4 will finally come in from a distant shore.

Young Eagle - No One Is Holy Without Suffering

The eagle transcends altitudes of 10,000 feet. 
His golden plumage breaks through the clouds 
and he escapes the bounds of this green earth. 
While some might say he flies too high, like Icarus, 
we believe that one day, we will all transcend,
and have our youth renewed like the eagle’s.

Yesterday The Apiary released a two-track EP from swedish artist Jesper Merrild aka Young Eagle. Earlier this year I came across Jesper’s covers of The Tough Alliance and jj as well as a wee pop gem from back in the day. Young Eagle’s debut release No One Is Holy Without Suffering goes just where I’d been hoping it would; it has the jj-esque balearic feel paired with a darker, sultry, rain-drenched Gotëburg mystique. Ära.

Klassfest - Nya Ovänner

Jesper Merrild (aka Young Eagle/⨊xCUSEƑILIPPA/L/J) just sent over this little pop gem from an old project with his friend Ludvig back when they were both living in their small hometown in central Sweden. This song comes from another time, years ago, when Nesta lived in Rome, back before Jesper was crafting electro jamz and remixing jj and The Tough Alliance— from "the golden days, when we were winning."

jj - die tonight (young eagle version)

Aquilotto rise from the depths of Rome.
From the blue waters to the white skies.

Sounds will lift up from down below.
The present will take shape in it’s purest form.

The one and only real love.
Forever united

die tonight, Alessandro Nesta.

The most gangster of swedish duos, jj, just posted up a new incredibly long-titled single to their blog. Check out ‘YOU DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH IT WOULD HURT ME IF YOU SAID THAT YOU WERE IN LOVE WITH ME’ below. The song appears to be a rather strange single off an upcoming release of some sort, perhaps off this summer’s most elusive (non)release— jj nº4…

jj - no one can touch us tonight

"what spring sounds like
what love looks like
what life feels like”

jj just dropped two new tracks for free download over at Sincerely Yours. It’s unclear if they’re singles off the duo forthcoming album jj nº4, but either way, it’s definitely worth checking out Elin and Joakim’s newest jams since their kills mixtape back in December.

Galapagos - No Where Else

Galapagos (aka Jacob McNaughton) just dropped a new track off his upcoming EP Sounds Vol. 2. I knew that he’d been messing around with some jj samples, but this is far better than anything I’d imagined. Now I can’t wait for the new EP. Jacob’s quickly becoming a mastersampler as he continues to churn out brilliant loop-based jams. In this blissed-out tune he combines vocals from jj’s I’m The One/Money On My Mind with a synthy backbone via Gold Panda’s Before We Talked and some bass from Radiohead’s Everything In Its Right Place. Also make sure to check out his take on N’SYNC’s Tearin Up My Heart on verb/re/verb's glorious Youth mixtape.
