A Beginner's Guide to Skweee

Some things remain timeless as is the case with Skweee. To my ears this vastly underrated genre aka Scandinavian Electro-Funk still sounds fresh, much fresher than many genres that have come and gone since its inception.

Here’s a great mix I came across on Soundcloud via a repost by one of the originators in the Skweee scene Randy Barracuda. This takes in a lot of classic Skweee material and indeed the mix dates back to 6 years ago.

This mix demonstrates so much unrecognized potential in this brilliant genre. It’s a shame much more of this stuff is still not being made. Saying that you only have to go back to our most recent release by Center of the Universe which showcased a Transnational element to the genre.
