January 1, Erk & Kap’s second studio LP with producer Academics was released. Through the group’s own label Random Bastards, “Bastards!” follows acclaimed and award nominated debut album “Dirty North”. Oh, and it's free!
Trainspotters has accomplished a lot but also barley started. Just like the duo’s collective and label Random Bastards, the group was formed naturally through skateboarding, living in northern Sweden and interest for the graffiti culture. After a dozen independent releases on limited cassettes, 12-inches, Japan vinyls and burned CD mixtapes, Ricky Rewind and George Kaplan’s debut LP landed 2010.
On New Year’s Day 2013, “Bastards!” – entirely produced by Alexander “Academics” Juneblad – was released. This album is also a journey that, across ten tracks, musically describes the feeling from dropping in to landing a trick and cruise on – with all of its aspects and nuances. Beats, rap and scratch are the setup and throughout the record the listener gets to know Trainspotters closer.
A loyal and growing bunch of bastards today represents merchandise and stickers all over the globe, while views on YouTube and plays on Spotify are counted in millions. In 2013, we’re welcoming everybody to enjoy new music videos, a live vinyl from legendary Scharinska, instrumental LP, new clothing collections, merchandise collaborations as well as a cross-continental summer tour.
