Jakob Burrows Music! Ukulele, Mashups, Punk, Etc!

You can download my music through my bandcamp / soundcloud. All my music is free or "name your price", meaning that you can choose to throw some change my way (but you don't have to). It's all released under Creative Commons (BY-NC-SA), which means that I want you to share, enjoy and remix my music.

These are the genres I do or whatever:

  • UKULELE: I play ukulele and write songs about zombies and love. I've released an EP called Answer Me and a few music videos and there are a million of these songs on my youtube.
  • MASHUPS: I make remixes and electronic music under the stage name PLAYLISP. There is a whole website dedicated to this project. I've released two albums of mashup music.
  • PUNK: I'm in a punk band called Total Misär, which is Swedish for "total misery". We practice in a garage and we are terrible. There are some demos on our facebook page.
  • RAP: Yes, I make rap music. Deal with it.

This Is A Beat 2

10 track rap mixtape - released 16 apr 2015
listen / download

Ten tracks, some with samples weaving intricate webs, others where the beat is a song and the flow blends into the music. This is something new and interesting and if you don't like it, it's because you have terrible taste. Or because you're afraid of new things. At least that's what I'll whisper as I cry myself to sleep after reading your mean comment. Boo hoo hoo.

This is a follow-up to my 2013 mixtape THIS IS A BEAT NOW. The beat for track 5 is by GBMystical - apart from that the beats are by PLAYLISP. Track 3 features Murph Dirt and track 10 features J Skeezy, both of Jim and Them and Real Ass People Every Day fame. The sexy cover is by the sexy Anders Backlund, who you know well through our sexy podcast.

Break It / Fix It

10 track mashup album - released 6 mar 2014
listen / download

Since releasing 2 Eyes 2 Ears back in 2011 I've been working on new material as well as developing my taste and style and refining my sense of what a remix "ought" to do. I've now taken all the best parts of my new material and put it together into a second mashup album called BREAK IT / FIX IT.

I wanted it to have that feel of very nearly falling apart but working all the same. So it will get experimental and glitchy but I'll still be there, holding the reigns. It's not an out of control ride - just a wild one.
