Powerful trio visits Sweden

In late October, Sweden is visited by a powerful reggae trio – Gyptian, Etana and Nitty Kutchie. On October 26th the trio performs at Babel in Malmö and the day after at Göta Källare in Stockholm.

Few have probably managed to avoid Gyptian’s monster hit Hold You this year. A pop reggae piece with a nice piano hook that has been versioned by American rapper Nicki Minaj and Major Lazer as well as an intense soca refix on the compilation Soca Gold 2010. The sophomore single from his latest album entitled Hold YouNah Let Go – has also had some success, though not in the same extent as Hold You.

Etana performed at Uppsala Reggae Festival last year and did a decent performance. She has a planned follow-up to her impressive debut The Strong One from 2008 and put out the strong singles August Town and Heart Broken together with Curtis Lynch at the end of last year.

Nitty Kutchie is the most unknown in this trio. His voice is reminiscent of Bushman and Luciano and has dropped a full-lenght album and some nice tunes. For example Welcome on Ghetto riddim, a riddim produced by Kemar “Flava” McGregor, and probably best known for Unfair – a Busy Signal and Peetah Morgan combination.
