20180702_153008 Kulturbloggen foto 180518Review of When Two Worlds Meet was published in Kulturbloggen (Culture Blog) on May 18th 2018, by Petter Stjernstedt. You can read the whole review in Swedish here:

Here are some quiotes, translated into English by Google and Maini:

“Uppsala and Brooklyn. Synth and metropolis rap. Two worlds meet when Finnish Swedish Maini Sorri and American Magneto Dayo beat their bags together. With 20 singles and 5 albums behind her, Uppsala-based Maini Sorri, 57 years old, was looking for something new. At the same time on the other side of the globe in the hipster neighborhood of Brooklyn, an enthusiastic Magneto Dayo is listening to Maini. He loves the music and contacts her immediately. Maini and Dayo decide to meet. And four years later, the duo has completed his first joint album…”

“Dayo is famous rapper and producer, who has written and produced for many great artists in the hip hop scene. With his quick jaw and big vocabulary, he gives weight to the production. And Maini with her unique voice adds an elegance. Magnetos rap and Mainis synth create exciting dynamics…”

“Blue Song was released in 2014 and quickly climbed up on the National Airplay Top Charts list. It’s a dance-like piece where the tough reggae is mixed with dance hall and electro. “Second Chance” puts a nice synth-breaks across the beats.”

“When Two Worlds Meet”, the great highlight of the album, is the modern Kendrik Lamar that hits perfectly.”

“Together, they explore conventions and clamps with resolute strides over established domains. “When Two Worlds Meet” is an album with a big courage. When two worlds meet, beautiful things can happen. In these times of tightened migration policy and xenophobia, it is a message we cannot hear too many times.”

When 2 Worlds meet article scanned 800Maini and Magneto Dayo were interviewed by Daily Press, Virginia, Samantha Camilletti in Summer 2017. The interview was published on July 17th, 2017.

‘When 2 Worlds Meet’ set to release this Summer

“Swedish Finnish singer Maini Sorri and hip-hop artist Magneto Dayo say they hope their new album “When 2 Worlds Meet” will shake up the stigma of genres and change lives after its release later this summer.

Maini Sorri Hongslo and Magneto Dayo, born Dashawn Williams, are two solo artists who came together purely by chance to create this album.

“It was a wonderful surprise that he found me on the internet and told me that he likes my songs and wanted to collaborate and record with me,” Sorri said. “It was really exciting. Two worlds definitely met.”

The album will be a mixture of hip hop and electronica pop.

Dayo was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., but moved to Newport News when he was 14, he said.

“This will sound like nothing you’ve ever heard. This album is really for the people that love good music,” Dayo said. “When I say that, I’m talking about the people that are not locked into one genre, but people that love the sound of great music, regardless of the genre.”

Although from different genres, Dayo and Sorri seemed to agree that their music is about bringing people together and binding them over a common cause.

“I hope that our songs will be many people’s favorites. I always hope that as many as possible will hear my music, enjoy it and share it, and I hope that we will spread peace, love and understanding to the world,” Sorri said. “Let’s appreciate our differences and treat each other as we want to be treated, with love and respect. We don’t want to build walls, we want to build bridges.”
