ICY IGLOO VOL.2

Jazz and Hip-Hop Mini Festival

IcyTheFuture Records presents the first edition of ICY IGLOO - Jazz and Hip Hop Mini Festival happening at Aarhus Jazz Festival 2024.

ICY IGLOO is focused on connecting local and international artists representing the jazz and hip-hop scenes under one roof.

From Stockholm and London, ambidextrous producer-artist smiling LIS (aka Liselotte Östblom) blurs the lines across alternative R&B, Hip-Hop, and experimental soundscapes. LIS combines multi-layered harmonies, futuristic sounds, and poetic lo-fi beats

Lo-fi beats frame her soulful vocals, which are at the center of her live productions with loops, beat-making, and extensive improvisation. She was picked up by jazz giants like Gregory Hutchinson on the album DA BANG (2023), produced by Karriem Riggins. She collaborated with drummer Robert 'Sput' Searight (Kendrick Lamar, Snarky Puppy), Aaron The Bassist, Sly5thAve, Yaahn 'Hunter', Doobie Powell, and British jazz artists. Her solo shows have been performed at Stockholm Jazz Festival and her debut mixtape PROPHECY was released in 2023, catching the attention of EARMILK and SOMEWHERE SOUL.

The world of smiling LIS intersects fashion, visuals, and performance, often involving her audiences through extensive solo sets involving live looping, scat, spoken word, and virtuosic vocals.

"LIS delivers a sublime and soul-grabbing melodic performance ripe with layered airy harmonies, swelling vocal passes, and trippy sound effects that exude a psychedelic feel." -
