Strøm – Copenhagen Electronic Music Festival invites every year some of the biggest, brightest and boldest stars on the electronic scene! ValoTV exclusively covered the Strøm programme in 2012 all over the capital. ValoTV's crew were filming at workshops, clubs, churches, open-air events and roof-top parties. For more info: stromcph.dk
The emerging rap talent Linkoban is one of boldest and newest Danish acts taking over the world with grime pop. The music style originates from the UK where Ling Ly - the front figure of Linkoban has lived for three years tuning her British accent. Ling is a part-Chinese and part-Dane. When Ling returned back to her hometown Copenhagen she contacted first Lucy Love, Kettil Myrstrand and Yo Akim from Superbillion Records.
Linkoban's music is an unique experience, both live and on record. Linkoban's debut EP "Super Into On It" was accompanied by impressive music videos raving through many online blogs and mtv. With her energetic debut performances on festivals like Roskilde, Strøm and in China (where she has been banned) Linkoban definitely is building up an active fanbase. Linkoban debut album is due to release in 2013.
