What local music did you grow up with?
"There's an old Swedish Jazz singer called Monica Zetterlund who sang so beautifully - I love her! There was also a singer called Kaah, who I ended up doing backing vocals for. And then Neneh Cherry - she's the pride of Sweden! You gotta love Neneh Cherry, come on man! But I didn't just grow up with Swedish music; I grew up on a lot of [US] hip-hop. I used to go to battle nights with local MCs, like Petter. It was a little mix of everything: Busta Rhymes, Mobb Deep, The Fugees etc. When I was young, like 11 or 12, 'Fu-Gee-La' and all that stuff was going around. But, I never had an older brother or big sister to introduce me to the hip-hop I discovered later." -Pulse Radio.
