5 new Belgian hip-hop tracks to start the weekend: Ashley Morgan, Ikraaan & more
Every week, we select five new Belgian hip-hop bangers that somehow caught our attention. Next to Baloji signing to Top Notch Belgium and Safi who has dropped a music video, we have a lot more new music to start the weekend. Keep sending us tracks or EP releases via firstname.lastname@example.org, and maybe your name will be on the list next Friday. But for now, it’s time to dance our asses of to the selection of this week. Let’s go!
ASHLEY MORGAN - SEAWEEDS AND ALGAES
We know Ashley Morgan as the DJ for national talent Dvtch Norris and as a producer under the name LTGL, but the rapper finally found the time to record his own very first vocal song. And not just à first song, but one that makes us long for next ones. The smooth hip-hop track with international character makes us think of laidback summer afternoons. A new name in the game to keep an eye on in the future!
IKRAAAN - HAPPY PILL
Antwerp based singer Ikraaan seems a bit like an outcast, but her Dutch R&B tracks are top level. The music video for title track Happy Pill came out on August 30th, but today the singer dropped her very first EP with the same name under Fake Records. Produced by Cloos, the EP is filled with dreamy and hazy R&B songs which gently fill up the room.
BROS BROS FT OFORIOS - RED LIGHT
A little less hip-hoppy, a little more bounce beats. Belgian producer Bros Bros dove into the studio with singer Oforios and put together a track with a ready-for-the-radio caliber. Ghentian singer Oforios hits the highs of female R&B as we’ve been waiting for the past years in our little country. Going through Bros Bros' Soundcloud, you’ll only find catchy car ride songs to set your mood for the whole day.
CEDJE FT 27DRILLARS - BLAUW FREESTYLE
These boys came through with heavy trap vibes and a flow we’re not used to in Belgium. Cedje, the rapper from Mechelen, was a guest in 101barz with Rotjoch in 2017 for the United Talent Night and is finally back with a music video and a new EP. Don’t put on his song too loud though, the beats might kill your ears. Dutch drill for sure!
ANA DIAZ - JALAPARTAP
Spanish dance vibes, eargasming beats, and rough French lyrics. Belgian-Spanish singer Ana Diaz knows damn well how to come through. Her new EP Rec_Final deserves a five-star review. The woman is a friend of Blu Samu and Le 77 and had her name on the Dour 2019 line-up already. She’s definitely not playing around!
