Metropolis Music presents
plus special guests
“The world is a trash island. You have the power to create your own reality.”
Bladee first started gaining notoriety in 2013 for his self-released, emotionally charged take on rap; growing up in Stockholm and thus completely detached from any sort of rap tradition, he was left to invent a new one – patching together a variety of disparate internet influences with his own vibrant imagination, creating a new wave of uncanny and immensely influential, highly unclassifiable type of music.
His worldbuilding — a mixture of both aspiration and real life — is part of what makes Bladee’s music unique, bringing out a wide spectrum of emotion between slow burning, susceptible ballads and highly charged pop hybrids, usually steered by the progressive instrumentals from his go-to producers Whitearmor, Yung Sherman, Gud and Ripsquad.
Bladee is notoriously enigmatic; his lyrics are abstract, his visuals cryptic, and yet he is perhaps best described as an artist that find happiness by just to putting out a certain, peculiar energy – always attached to the idea of creating something truly beautiful, to follow his inner light and to constantly evolve.
