Skweee is a new musical genre hailing from the scandinavien countries such as Sweden, Finland and Norway.

Skweee is basically a mix of funky lead synthesizers and bass riffs with a touch of
8-bit soundscapes, which also makes it "The synthetic funk".

There has been some releases made with skweee mostly on 7inch vinyl records but there has also been three compilation records released, one on cd and two on 12inch vinyl.

There are two major skweee lables at the moment;
Flogsta Danshall (Swe) , an original skweee label managed by the swedish electro legend Pavan.

Harmönia (Fin), a more recent Finnish label managed by a various artist such as Mesak, Randy Barracuda......

These two labels have respectively released;

Museum of Future Sounds ( Flogsta)

Hamörnia skweee vol 1

and

Harmönia skweee vol 2

Two new compilation albums are to be released around march this year.

Sorry, but that's the worst genre name EVER invented.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Will do, but seriously, why did they go for skwee? I'd rather castrate myself than say I listen to skwee...

the name skweee is originated from the idea of "sqeezing" out the last juice of your synthesizer, instrument or what you now use.... that's what makes the sound of skweee so simple and stripped down.
