Lady Louise and DJ Marimba are starting up a new party night in Barcelona under the name of 'Abou [sic.]—girls run this mother#####r' to feature Swedish and local artists.
Playing non-commercial black club music, dancehall, hip hop, R'n'B, dubstep, mashup, soca, etc., the plan is to bring Abou to Berlin in the new year as well as Barcelona. For the opening night here, the two creators are joined on the turntables by DJ Nico Lupen (Luv Messenger Sound) as well as Adam Tensta playing live.
Tensta’s second album Scared Of The Dark was released last April in Scandinavia by EMI/Virgin. The first songs released were 'Like A Punk' and the title track 'Scared Of The Dark', which features Billy Kraven. Behind the pseudonym is songwriter and producer Jeff Bhasker. He has previously gained the attention of critics and fans for his extensive work with Kanye West’s '808 2s & Heartbreak'. Together with his right musical hand Nils Svennem Lundberg, and an in-house team of producers, Tensta presents an almost indefinable sound that once again breaks ground in the Swedish and international urban scene.
Lady Louise is behind some of Gothenburg's most popular clubs such as Jamrock and Toppa Tings. She is also one third of the reggae/dancehall group Serengeti whose album Standing steady has gained a lot of recognition and respect and taken them on tours worldwide. Louise DJs on her own as well and is constantly booked all over Europe and produces tours for jamaican and swedish artists.
In Sweden, DJ Marimba has for the past 15 years brought dancehall, hip hop, reggae, R’n’B and electronic music to the people as a DJ and journalist. Marimba runs the company Nuh Easy Productions, which organises parties, concerts and tours in Europe. She has been behind some of the most talked about and popular clubs in Stockholm such as Haffla Thursdays together with Jexpert and Marimba is one part of the DJ-duo Rough Bush alongside Neneh Cherry.
DJ Nico Lupen is an Italian living in Barcelona who, together with Supah Lion, RudeTeo, Efuran and Don Rolando in 2007 formed the Luv Messenger Sound. They play regulary at nights at Xpressing Underground Club, Razzmatazz, Jamrock BCN and has become one of the most talked about and exciting sounds in Barcelona.
