Rebstar - Osignad svensk artist jobbar med USAs hetaste producenter

Pressmeddelande   •   Nov 21, 2010 17:55 CET

Malmörapparen Rebstar slog igenom i 2008 med debutsingeln ”Without You” som gästas av ingen mindre än Grammy-nominerade R&B stjärnan Trey Songz. Musikvideon som genererade 2 miljoner views på 2 dagar har hyllats av bland annat P Diddy, Justin Bieber och Atlantic Records. Allt detta har han åstadkommit på egen hand.

Det var inte långt efter tills de större skivbolagen i USA ville höra mer om det svenska fenomenet. Medan ett skivkontrakt förhandlas har Rebstar lyckats samarbeta med några av de hetaste producenterna och artisterna och släppa gratisskivan Arrival.

Boi-1da (Eminem "Not Afraid", Drake "Best I Ever Had", "Forever") och T-Minus (Ludacris "How Low") är några av producenterna som har bidragit till Arrival. Även artisterna Ray J, Trey Songz och Rich Boy gästar Arrival.

Skivan Arrival - eller 'mixtapet' som han själv föredrar att beteckna det som - finns tillänglig för gratis nedladdning på www.rebstar.com.

Debutalbumet The European Dream beräknas att släppas under 2011. Vilket bolag det blir som Rebstar signar med blir känt efter årsskiftet.

-BIOGRAPHY-

Malmo, Sweden isnt exactly considered a Hip-Hop hotbed but its the birthplace of Rebstar, one of the fastest rising new artists in the industry. No longer is Rap music confined to the streets of New York or the stages of Los Angeles. Rap music and Hip-Hop culture have captivated the globe and for proof one needs to look no further than Rebstar.

Growing up in Sweden, Rebstar was introduced to the English language that would fuel his rhymes at an early age. His mother insisted he enroll in an international elementary school that taught English, hoping that it would afford him more opportunities in the future. Rebstar made his way through school eventually deciding to move to the UK to study law. As he hit the books hard, Rebstar couldnt shake the feeling that he was meant to pursue music full-time. He dropped out of school and moved back to Sweden.

Upon returning home, Rebstar took the first step towards making his music dreams come true by establishing his own record label called 2fresh. With an aggressive determination and a lifelong passion on his back, Rebstar released his debut single Without Youfeaturing Grammy-nominated singer Trey Songz. The song exploded onto the scene, garnering airplay all over the globe. The accompanying video racked up over 6 million views online cementing Rebstar as one to watch.

Being a European artist, I pull influences for my music from all over the world,says Rebstar. “My sound isnt easily defined because I dont have the typical American or European Hip-Hop flow. The music is a mash-up of different genres and cultures.

Swedens a long way from the streets of New York. But as Rebstar has found out, passion and the power of music know no boundaries.
