Welcome to Sweden Makes Music 2019!

Sweden Makes Music is an annual live showcase event introducing Swedish pop artists to New York audiences at Baby’s All Right in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. 

Featured artists: Elias, LE SINNER, Mapei, DJ Clea

UPDATE: We're sorry to inform you that due to illness Morabeza Tobacco are unable to perform tonight. The rest of the show will go on as planned!

Stockholm-based Elias has been described by Noisey as "a concoction of James Blake soulfulness and Bon Iver potential," while i-D compared his "gorgeously profound voice" with FKA twigs, Spooky Black, Anthony Hamilton and Sam Cooke. He released his debut album Entwined last year and already dropped two singles – "I Give You The Best" and "Neon Lights" – in anticipation of an upcoming EP.

Mapei is a Swedish-American artist who playfully connects the dots between soul music and today’s club and hip-hop vibes. She’s been compared to M.I.A, remixed by Frankie Knuckles and Chance the Rapper, and recently dropped a new album, Sensory Overload, signaling another level and brand new chapter in her career.

LE SINNER is a Malmö-based rapper who never follows conventions. Since achieving global fame with his debut single "Paris" in 2017 and peaking at #1 on Spotify's Viral 50 in the U.S., he’s been hailed by the likes of DJ Snake, Beats 1, Vibe and XXL. With the future looking bright, he’s ready to start making moves in New York.

DJ Clea
With ten years of experience behind the decks, Stockholm-based DJ Clea is one of the brightest stars on the Swedish circuit. Known and beloved for her melodic and progressive take on dance music, her sets are always multi-faceted and creative – the kind of deep house crafted for both late-night club floors and lazy afternoons in the sun.

Morabeza Tobacco
Morabeza Tobacco is the lo-fi pop duo of Vanilla Stillefors och Gustav Jennefors, who took their name from a local bodega and smoke shop in Stockholm. Their first single "TTYL" was quickly discovered and praised by NPR, and the hazy dream-pop of their self-titled debut album drew rave reviews for its “entrancing atmosphere” by The 405.
