I’ll be playing my first festival at For Flavor on Saturday the 3rd of May, in a live beats set with Pukaz, Loscobeats & Sixfingerz. Should be awesome!
Our man Freddy Bracker invited the homie Sixfingerz and myself to showcase some tracks at Beatfreaks #4, the 13th of April at Zwart Wild in Gent. It should be a real chilled out evening with nice Hip-Hop beats, and this will be my first time playing in the city – I hope to see some of my Gent people there!
My monthly selection of (obviously lovely ) tracks I’ve been listening to lately, including work by Freddy Bracker, Jarreau Vandal, Arts The Beatdoctor, Evil Needle, Swede:art, Segilola, Kwabs, Bibio, Phife Dawg, and of course Yusef Lateef (RIP). Enjoy!
Here are some of the beats I made for the Champion Sound beat battle that took place in Antwerp yesterday night. Made it to the quarter finals – but most importantly, it was great fun and I’ve learned a lot from this!
A big shoutout to the organisers and crew, all the participants, and to the man LTGL who ended up winning the battle!
I’ll be taking part in the Champion Sound beat battle next saturday at Kavka (Antwerp). All participants were given 4 tracks to sample and flip on a month time + a fifth song a few days before the event. We’ll be presenting our beats and battling each other with our tracks in a 4-round format, followed by an afterparty. Be sure not to miss it, dunno if I’ll make it any far, all I know is there’s loads of talent in here!
And here’s a special one for the occasion. This record by Eugene McDaniels caused outrage when it was released in 1971. Senior members of the Nixon administration personally contacted Atlantic Records and demanded that this artist be shelved. Unfortunately, Atlantic gave in to the pressure, and did not record or release anything else by McDaniels again, although he continued to enjoy a successful career as a songwriter. This LP was heavily sampled by the hip-hop crowd over the years, it’s not hard to understand why. Happy Thanksgiving!
7th of December, Beat Battle @ Kavka, come check us out!
