L'Or du Commun - Homosapiens (Prod. Vax1)
ODC are steadily rolling their album out towards Friday, when they will release all of 'Sapiens'. 'Homosapiens' is the fourth song we get to hear and it's another big tune where the guys show why they're on top of the game. Their lyrics are accompanied by a futuristic beat, property of Vax1.
Apex Raptors - wAvepex (Prod. Gio)
Apex is back with a new track! J9RR9 and Gio, straight from 9000, laid down some clever bars on this one. We wouldn't be surprised if this song gets the crowd on fire.
Youn. - Olympe (Prod. Mowley)
Watch out for this suave-ass-tune! Youn. treats us with his smooth vocals on this lush track that is the closing single of his latest project 'Beleza’. The video and location are on point and Youn. is definitely an artist to watch the coming year!
NTREK - Felip (feat. Brihang & JtotheC)
‘Felip’ is the first single of NTREK's album 'Calping’ (out on November 30). It features NTREK alongside Brihang and JtotheC, who prove themselves as language sculptors, as Brihang likes to put it. The chorus is also pretty catchy! Some quality West Flemish Belgian hip-hop right here.
Tourist LeMC - Barbaren
With this very short but touching song, Tourist announces the release of his album ‘We Begrijpen Mekaar’. The piano melody is beautiful and we're sure the lyrics are too, though we did have to pay attention to understand what he was saying the first time we heard it.
L’Or du Commun - Slalom (Prod. Vax1)
We're closing off with another L'Or du Commun song as they've released two tracks the last two weeks already and we couldn't leave this one out. Just have a listen and you'll understand.

Ik ga vrijwilligerswerk doen in Afrika en ik neem mee: mijn smartphone en mijn selfiestick.Elk jaar reizen er tienduizenden vrijwilligers af naar Afrika. Ze helpen er in weeshuizen, bouwen mee een school op of geven Engelse les. Deze bezoeken kunnen goed bedoeld zijn, maar de lokale bevolking help je er niet altijd mee vooruit. Daarbovenop kunnen je altruïstische motieven ook in vraag worden gesteld wanneer je op sociale media te veel foto’s post van dit vrijwilligerswerk.
