Artist Spotlight: KREAM

KREAM at the El Rey in Los Angeles, CA on January 18th 2019

Norwegian brothers Daniel & Marckus Slettebakken splashed onto the scene in 2016 with their single “Taped Up Heart” featuring songstress Clara Mae. Since then, they’ve released a handful of singles including features from Maia Wright, Cazztek, and Litens. Even though they haven’t released a full length or even an EP yet, their singles hold their own. Each and every single (there’s 8 total) are catchy, with incredible vocals, and is guaranteed to be on your “Recently Played” for at least a month. A good, if not great, introduction to KREAM (and how I first discovered them) is Beautiful Buzzz’s Buzzzmix Volume 38. It displays their impeccable talent for meshing some of the best electronic/house songs together with effortless transitions. After finally witnessing their live set firsthand, I was blown away by the difference between the recorded sets and the live set. They effortlessly blended remixes of top 40 artists like Cardi B, Post Malone, and Bazzi in with their original songs. KREAM is on the rise and I can’t wait to see them bring their talents to the states again. For now, listen to their Buzzzmix set and watch their video for “Taped Up Heart” below.
