Various Artists Inside Scandinavia 2
- Words: Velanche Stewart
- Label: Raw Fusion
Iconic DJ and well-traveled tastemaker Mad Mats has not only cultivated the Raw Fusion club night (which turns 10 this year), but also an accompanying record label, which showcases underground Nordic talent steeped in the soul-jazz tradition. Inside Scandinavia 2 continues to explore the fertile musical underground of Sweden, Denmark, and Finland, where neo-soul, hip-hop, and jazz are seen from fresh and compelling perspectives. Jukka Eskola kills it with the uplifting jazz epic "1974" and Copenhagen's Povo makes two appearances, including a swinging Latin jazz touch-up of Fertile Ground‘s "Another Day." From above-average wonders to high-caliber delights, Inside Scandinavia 2 is nothing short of exceptional.
