Martha Da'ro - Summer Blues
You might know Martha Da'ro from the Belgian hip-hop group 'Soul'Art' or from the movie 'Black' by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. This track is Martha Da'ro her debut as a solo artist and she pulled us in straight from the beginning with her high-pitched and fragile but sultry voice. The percussion in the instrumental are on point and make you want to move. Be sure to watch the clip as well, it's been made with a phone and a small camera by Chase photographer Yaqine Hamzaoui.
Zwangere Guy - Gorik Pt. 1
Zwangere Guy is back after a year of focussing on the STIKSTOF project with his brothers Jazz, Astro and Vega. 'Gorik Pt. 1' is the first track leading to a new album and man are we excited for it. On this track, Guy uncovers a huge piece of his own past. The strong lyrics put you in young Gorik's shoes for a second and make you realise the battle life has been for him.
3C1P - 3000 (feat. Kapeta & Zofilo)
After their latest release 'Colombianas' on 10|10 Music featuring the full group, 3C1P keeps on pushing with fresh tracks on a weekly basis. '3000' is a hard-ass track with a great hook. The kind of track you need to get the crowd hyped. These guys are talented and we're sure they'll bring more fire in the future.
Juicy - GHB
With a fierce but relatable song called 'GHB’, the women of Juicy are bringing a social issue to light that shapes our everyday life without being spoken of. As we're used to seeing from the duo, they bring the subject in a very eccentric way and with music that shows they'll never shy away from some experimenting. We’ve also heard they’re ready to come back in March 2019 with a brand new EP, so keep your eyes peeled!
Mr Clasik - White Lady
Mr Clasik! We met this guy during FRONTAL's Cypher this year and loved his smooth flow back then. Seems like he only became better! 'White Lady' is a smooth tune that makes us think about the old school West Coast hip-hop a bit. This talented MC will definitely stay on our radar for a while.
Cisko - Spazz
Let's close off with some chill vibes straight from Ghent. Cisko treats us with a brand new track that is definitely worth the listen.
