In case you haven’t discovered their music yet I urge you now to go watch their video ‘Let Go‘ (a single from jj- n 3). jj – n3 got me through the cold winter and spring this year, possibly one of my favourites of the year. I almost had the chance to see them this summer in Chicago at the Pitchfork Music Festival, but they ended up cancelling.
jj (a hot Swedish duo from Gothenburg) have done it again with their new release, a mixtape named ‘Kills’ (Or jj [fucking] kills). The mixtape is up for grabs via the record labels website Sincerely Yours. The new mixtape samples from a lot of different songs, taking from hip hop, rap, top 40 and more. The contrast between those genres and jj is really interesting and fun, I love it! Awesome juxtaposition fun!
Released beforehand as a precursor were the singles ‘Let Them’ (‘Kill Them’ on the mixtape) that samples from T.I. – Let’em Talk and Akon – Right Now (Na Na Na), and ‘I’m the One/Money on My Mind’ which samples from The XX. Elin sings “Fuck all you hos get a grip, let’em talk.” her sweet voice distracts from the harsh words of the song.
Here is the new video for ‘Let Them’… God they are fucking gorgeous:
