Got a hot tip in our mail just now.. Oscar Sharp working on a new project! This is a best kept secret, special post for ya'll from the Beathearts Blog! Look out for this album, and remember where you read it first!

Some information about Oscar Sharp and the project:

"After being introduced to hiphop-culture in the early eighties by Quincy Jones III and later possessed by the sounds of Eric B & Rakim, Run DMC and A Tribe Called Quest it’s easy to see why hiphop and rap-music came to be the first music released by Oscar Sharp (under his real name Oskar Skarp). But after having been involved in some of the most interesting Swedish hiphop- and soul-releases around the turn of the millenia, touring with and producing artists like Thomas Rusiak, Masayah, Fattaru, Ken, Ison & Fille, Fjärde Världen and others, Oscar always felt he was confined to rules and genres. And it wasn’t until he got his hands on the late, great J Dilla’s album “Welcome 2 Detroit” that Oscar decided to do his own thing and follow his dream of making an album without boundaries, genres, rules or regulations. An album based upon musical experimentation and guest appearances, with sounds from real instruments mixed with early digital-syntesizers and vintage, analogue equipment. This decision led him down a path quite unlike the one he envisioned and after some twists and turns, a few years misspent, a sudden career in another business and other events of serendipity, the end result of this almost decade-long journey is now ready to be released. The album titled “Oscar Sharp with Guests - Songs In The Tree Of Life” features artists from all over the world (USA, England, Brazil, Jamaica, Barbados, Senegal, Zambia and more) but most notably our (and Stevie Wonder’s) favorite UK-soul singer Omar and the legendary organist Bo Hansson (R.I.P), whom Oscar managed to get into the studio for the first time in over 25 years! As well as some of the most interesting artists and musicians living and working in Sweden, like Salem Al Fakir, Christian Walz, Simone Moreno, Desmond Foster, Thomas Rusiak, Christian Falk, Goran Kajfes, Rasmus Faber, Hearin’ Aid (Damon Frost & Aaron Phiri), Per “Ruskträsk” Johansson, Linn, Mika Snickars, and the list goes on and on.."
