Yancey Boys :: Frank Nitt & Illa J.

Frank Nitt and Illa J. are the Yancey Boys together. Last year they dropped their debut album “Sunset Blvd” and finally got to Europe to do a few shows including Amsterdam. Both of these MC’s (and producers) are individually known for several projects they have been working on the past years.

Krondon :: MC, Producer, Ghostwriter

This member of the Strong Arm Steady crew has been on my radar for several years. I got familiar with his music through mutual friends and of course my love for hip hop. Last week I finally got the chance to sit down with him. Krondon talks about the new projects he has been working […]

Trapazoyd :: Tetraheathen & Commagang

Trapazoyd, not the first artist that you would expect me to do an interview with. But when I first heard his song “Hey Selfie Bitch”, I completely died laughing. I had to figure out who he was and as ignorant as he may sound w/ his OCD yelling a certain word, I can’t help but […]

WEFUNK :: Professor Groove & DJ Static

Last Sunday was full of funk, soul, hip hop and bboy-ing in Amsterdam as the Spin Off Finals of 2014 took place over here. For this year, they labeled it the Funky Edition and had special guest DJ’s Professor Groove and DJ Static flown in all the way from Canada, to spin some tunes these […]

Del The Funky Homosapien :: Skateboards, Stabbings & More

As soon as I got word of Deltron 3030 going on tour for Event 2, I was hoping they would hit Europe as well. Or so to speak, Amsterdam. It definitely was on my “who to meet-bucket list” to shake hands with Del The Funky Homosapien and Dan the Automator. As I kept track of […]

Skeme Richards :: Music, Art & Geekery

This is why I love my city, I can randomly run into living legends. Although I have to give it to my girl LoRock for introducing me to Skeme Richards when he was over here, hosting the monthly Legends party at Paradiso. Not only do I love this guy for his knowledge of music, he […]

Slum Village :: Evolution

Although I have interviewed Slum Village two times before over the past years, I was excited to do another interview with them, as this formation consists of T3, Illa J and Young RJ. The last two are no strangers to Slum Village fans as they have always been a part of the SV family. At […]

Hiatus Kaiyote :: Future Soul

When I came across the Australian band Hiatus Kaiyote a while ago, I had no idea how popular they would be in such little time. As mad as I was at myself, for missing their live performance at the North Sea Jazz festival in Rotterdam, I was lucky enough to actually catch them in Amsterdam, […]

Black Thought :: Stay True 2 Your Roots

Last weekend Rotterdam was hosting another group of amazing artists, during the 38th edition of North Sea Jazz Festival. The Legendary Roots Crew is not an unfamiliar band to play this festival as they have performed there before. Having known lead MC/singer Black Thought for a few years now, we never took the time out […]

Ca$h Money Records :: Veronica V

Music label Ca$h Money Records decided to throw a private event, together with SwaG ShaQ, in Amsterdam, to introduce three of their new signed artists. The third artist of this event, that I got to talk to is Veronica V. Introduced as the record label’s First Lady, this passionate singer has proven herself to be diverse […]
