We’re back at it with 5 fresh releases straight from our little country. So many great songs from local artists came out lately so we made a selection for this week. Let’s get this thing started!
NAG & LEFTO - CIRKELS
Starting off strong with a new project by Belgian hip-hop don Lefto alongside Antwerp-based rapper Nag, one of last week’s ‘Red Bull Bekvechten 2017' judges. With an impeccable flow by Nag and a soulful jazz-infused beat that screams Lefto, we just have to put this one on repeat… The full album ‘Cirkels’ is available now on iTunes and Spotify.
Kunde - Mellow Mind
Funky as sh*t! Kunde proves he has his own style of hip-hop blended with funky beats, accompanied by visuals straight out of an lsd trip. His debut EP is dropping early March 2018, so be prepared!
LaFrenchClass - Hard Easy

Meet 21-year old producer Messoins, the brain behind YouTube series #JourneyOfABeat
Music and storytelling: its a match made in heaven for Arsène Rurangiza aka music producer and composer Messoins.

The digital music composer takes his beatmaking videos to the next level by inviting artists for each session. They write lyrics to his beats and perform the song live at the end of the video.
