Adel

LNKAY & Musikgäris

“I’ve been through a lot, but I don’t think it’s until now that I’ve realised that it’s my setbacks and failures that have led to my success. My music has definitely opened new doors for me and this is only the beginning” Adel says.

In the second episode of Amuse’s mini-documentary series ‘Artist Stories’, the artist LNKAY tells us the story behind Musikgäris – a separatistic music collective for women, non-binary and transgender people in the music industry.

After last years’ successful debut, it’s time to tell the story of Adel.

We’re now releasing the first episode of our new mini documentary series ‘Artist Stories’, a series launched in order to tell the stories behind the artists. In the first episode of the series, we’re hanging out with Adel for a day in the Stockholm suburb Husby. He tells us about his past and about his music journey.

Adel’s debut single ‘Skina’ was recorded in only two hours during a night session in the studio. The demo leaked and quickly became popular, with over half a million of streams on Youtube, before it was pulled down. The finished debut single was then released on Spotify in the middle of April via Amuse’s distribution service.

‘Skina’ got a couple of hundred thousand streams on Spotify. Adel was soon signed to Amuse label and the success has continued ever since. ‘Skina’ sold gold and was followed up with ‘Spring’, and his two music videos have already reached over 5 million views on Youtube. Adel released his third single ‘Choklad’ last Friday – with a tougher and rawer sound than ever. He’s currently working on his debut EP that’ll be released in the spring.

In the second episode of Amuse’s mini-documentary series ‘Artist Stories’, the artist LNKAY tells us the story behind Musikgäris – a separatistic music collective for women, non-binary and transgender people in the music industry.

With over 3 000 members in the closed Facebook group, Musikgäris functions as a forum and meeting point meant for dialogue and exchange of experience and knowledge, with the purpose to work towards an equal music industry. The collective, that was founded by LNKAY in the fall of 2016, also creates platforms for the members in the shape of club nights, events, workshops, and panels. The goal? To no longer have to exist.
