Somewon Shares Bitter-Sweet Debut Single, ‘Happy Together.’

Born and raised in Copenhagen, SOMEWON‘s latest single ‘Happy Together’, evolves around the struggle of letting someone go.

The turbulent alternation between the melodically light tones and the glitchy melancholic bass in his latest single could also sum up his upbringing when exploring music. From a childhood in classical choirs to spending his teenage years in the hip-hop community, Somewon – whose real name is Aleksander Demsitz – struggled to find his own identity musically.

After being a backing vocalist for the Danish hip-hop artist Mund De Carlo for several years and releasing a visual hip-hop-soul EP, Somewon has truly found himself in pop music.

Song of the Day: Power – Kareem

East London-hailing rapper, KAREEM‘s single ‘Power’, shows him flow effortlessly over an atmospheric and wavy instrumental.

‘Power’ finds Kareems’s pen flowing with his desire for power and his ability to give love to his partner. Remaining cooly unapologetic, the rapper serves up some of his slickest flows, which could borderline R&B while retaining the poetic nature of hip-hop; in a way that’s slightly reminiscent of US artist, Sahbabii.

Drawing from a pool of influences that range from Trap to Hip Hop, more specifically the likes of Young Thug, Future, Nipsey Hussle and J Cole, Kareem has managed to take these inspirations to cultivate his own unique sonic, much like those aforementioned.

His single, ‘City View’ captures his cocky personality and unique flow over the wavy groove of the track’s b-line . He calls upon singer Garf (of Generation GT) to drop his silky smooth vocals, which gives the production that extra spine-tingling sensation.
