Audio: High Life brings Africa to Sweden 60 minutes at a time

Turns out there is a jungle in Sweden. Yeah, I’m just as surprised as you. Granted, that jungle only exists for 60 minutes a week during a Swedish radio program called P3 Pop, but I still consider it a miracle.

DJ duo High Life (how appropriate) are Sweden’s masters of all things tropical, and when they aren’t bringing some equatorial energy to Stockholm’s night clubs, they’re fusing together sounds from all over the globe for their 60 minute mini-mixes. High Life works with everything from Kuduro to Kwaito to bring a lush, lively sound to an otherwise chilly nation.

Give their latest mix a listen, and be sure to check their website for future mixes. I should note that their website is in Swedish, but good music knows no language barriers. As High Life puts it, "the world is a disco ball."
