Refections on decolonisation and sauvage curatorship in the current BOZAR exhibition
Five years have past since his first official release and it feels like Swedish rapper Bladee has finally really managed to hit the nail on the head. His latest mixtape ICEDANCER simply kills it. This seventh project of the Drain Gang CEO and long-time Yung Lean friend and collaborator is perhaps the iciest trap music that has surfaced in a while.
No wonder it’s doing rightfully well. His instantly recognisable sound is steadily maturing; flirting with fame while reaching out to true underground innovators in rap music (like Cartier God and Black Kray, and the producer squad Working On Dying). Bladee stays prayed up and that won’t change anytime soon. We had to pinch ourselves a few times before we believed that this Auto-Tune prodigy will be turning up Different Class!
