Sweatshop was formed in 2007 in a studio in Copenhagen. The 3 members Daniel, Kuku and Jonas had already been making music together in different constellations for many years. Both Kuku and Jonas had solo albums under their belts, and Daniel had been producing for both of them. A need emerged for all 3 to have a free creative space - a playground - where ideas could become songs in a heartbeat, without having to please any certain standard but their own. With only one purpose: To challenge and inspire each other. On average 1 day was spent on each song. Writing, producing, recording. After a couple of months the songs added up to a full album, which was later mixed and named "The Hustle". The kids are still working hard, sweating in the shop, new bread is in the oven, and the magic recipe has become even tastier!
The brand new EP ”The Getaway” is a step in a slightly different direction, blending more reggae and roots flavours into the mix. With songs that are catchier than ever and with obvious radio potential, Sweatshop are going all in! With a release in the fall of 2011, Sweatshop are laying the foundation to make 2012 their year.
