New Supersci album out now, produced by Arka & Erik L.

Their musical combination of northern melancholy and thoughtful lyrics has been praised all over the world. Supersci are now back with the new album - Timelines.

Supersci was early regarded as one of Sweden's most secretive hip hop collective. Isolated from the noise and trends of the big cities they earned the respect of the fans with their jazzy and vinyl-crackling sound.

Then four years ago they took the step from an underground act to a group of international concern. The full-length debut Pinetrees On The Pavement was commended by the critics and the singles Get! and On the Grind got frequent rotation on the radio. Soon Japanese and German lincense deals were signed and Supersci were frequently booked for concerts around Sweden and northern Europe.

The exclusive digipak CD edition of Supersci's new album 'Timelines' is now in stock and available for order in the webshop. The cover artwork is drawn by artist Hans-Roger Östlin and the overall graphic design is courtesy of Hans-Roger Östlin and Daniel Öun (Mr Noun).
The CD is nicely priced 100 SEK plus 36 SEK shipping. If you order the CD along with a Supersci t-shirt you get both for 250 SEK. Get the new album HERE!

The single Sow To Reap is also in rotation on radio channels SR Metropol , P3 Street, Min gata (Malmö) and THS Radio. The album is now also available on Spotify.

Ubeat Records is back into offering quality releases.

Remixes by Busy, Ekofield, Sasac, Stray, Erik L and more. Favorite Flava is Erik L, Stray & Paul Mac Innes. Get the compilation on iTunes, Junodownload, Amazon, Soul Seduction and other places now!! Check out some feedback below..

DJ Jamad - Many Great remixes all at once. I'm a big fan of Erik L & like the Sasac Remix alot. Lots of great choices for any crowd. Big thanks! DJ Jamad - Afromentals Mixshow

Yannick / RBMA - Really feeling this, great package of mixes!

Andrew Meza (BTS Radio - Ubiquity) - So many mixes! Really like the original and the Erik L Soularp mix for taking it somewhere crazy

Dj Spinnerty - Hard to beat the original mix here - the Favorite Flava album is still getting regular listens and spins, which is rare in this day and age.

Opolopo - Nice remixes all around but The Erik L Soularp is the standout for me! Damn, that's some trippy 70's electro fusion fast forwarded into the new millennium. Could play this back to back with Weather Report or Miles from back in the day...

Junior (Record Breakin' Music / Eavesdrop Radio) - OUCH, seriously? Thanks now my neck hurts from nodding. Big sound and heavy vibes! Def. getting Eavesdrop rotation.

Ennio Styles (Triple R- Melbourne) - Hard to top the dope original version, one of my favourites from the album. Impressive lineup of remixers. Sasac is my fave of these remixes.

Kerem Gokmen (Dubmission Radio Show / WYEP) - From one of my top 5 favorite albums of 2009, I never get tired of hearing this track. Having a hard time choosing a favorite as each remix has added a little something different here. Erik L & Stray Deep have taken things in a completely different direction from the original the most. My personal favorite is the Duktus & Roman Rauch edit though, their works keep getting better & better.

Matthias Desch (Bogaloo Radio Show) - hi, thanks for sending the link! deepness pure, really hard to pick the best mix. stray deep is my favourite but also the erik l one is massive. excellent selection for your rooster, support guaranteed! big up, matt

Gam (Apoliticalparty) - Only Erik L can freak his own song like that. His remix is mind-numbingly
bugged. I love it.

Blair stafford
- Extremely fresh production! Will definently support on air and in the clubs!

"If you like modern Soul Music with a touch of electronics I see no reason why you shouldn’t get this album, as a matter of fact; I order you to get a hold of this one as soon as it’s out." - www.afromonk.com

"While rooted in soul, Stray’s songs cannot help but leave the genre (even if only to renew it), collecting keys and electronic bass lines from futuristic funk and grabbing a few melodies from catchy electronica." - www.beatnikonline.net

"hell yeah...fantastic longplayer !! i love the ranges between some kinda 80s vibe..a lil bit folk and for sure some future beats...excellent work and full support !!!!" - Markus Milz (further in fusion), Radio Corax 95.9fm
