New Zebra Traffic Release... Up Hygh - Compatible...Sounding more Detroit than Stockholm, Up Hygh, the wonder-kid hip-hop / soul production duo, are quite literally poised to reinvent the “Swedish sound”. Through their ‘Venus’ album, Pure-P and Rick Skizzo, the two 20yr-old producers behind Up Hygh, have delivered a unique pressure-cooked mixture of sexy deepspace funk, raw hip-hop and soulful r&b.

With an unmistakable nod to underground production superteams such as The Ummah, Sa-Ra Creative Partners, and Platinum Pied Pipers, Up Hygh’s futuristic hiphopnusoulsound retains a distinct and unique edge, providing a perfect backdrop for the stellar cast of guests, including Little Brother, Eska, ADL, Planet Asia and more. But not content with producing alone, the guys also sing & rap on a number of the tracks themselves! Check ‘Compatible’ for the perfect example of this! The full album drops on 30th October 2006.
 
The buzz has already begun to spread with their first couple of 12” releases getting regular spins by notable selectors such as Gilles Peterson, Benji-B, Unabombers, Electrons, Zane Lowe, Bobbito, DJ Vadim and Jazzanova.
