Lazee Video & Info
HARD2BEAT TV on MUZU
Lazee is about to storm the UK with his monster anthem ‘Hold On’. Already a huge hit in Sweden the track has picked up support from Mista Jam (Radio 1/1xtra), Pioneer (Kiss) Master Stepz (Choice), Steve Sutherland (Galaxy) and many more.
The video which was shot on location in Japan has received over 1 million YouTube hits in Sweden. Now signed to Hard2beat Hold On is guaranteed to set the UK charts alight this summer!
Signed to SONY/BMG Lazee’s first single ‘Rock Away’ went gold in Sweden and reached number 2 on the iTunes chart. This impressed American rocker Fred Durst so much that he flew him over to L.A to record another version of the record. A great year for Lazee was summed up by his nomination for Best Swedish Act at the 2008 EMA’s.
Not only has Lazee left a lasting impression in the states he has also been noticed by UK grime artist Kano and features on a remix of ‘Hustlers Anthem’ which is currently doing the rounds. Kano is also set to feature on his album.
Having spent his childhood in Malmö, Sweden, Lazee was sent to London aged 12 to try and make something of his life. During his six year stay here, the young Swede developed his love for hip hop even further and by the time he moved back to Scandinavia in 2004, he was ready to complete his first album. Back at home, he hooked up with producer Ishi, and the pair hit the studio to start working on a new sound. What came out of that studio was an amazing fusion of hip hop, grime, house, and drum & bass, all topped off by Lazee’s fiery, electrifying lyrics.
Now ‘Hold On,’ collaboration with Swedish rock group, Neverstore is poised to take Lazee up to the next step in his career. Its hypnotising beat merges perfectly with Neverstore’s haunting vocal and Lazee’s melancholic rap.
