Chase Verses & Aperohit partner up to stimulate collabs between Belgian artists
Belgian hip-hop has been insanely popular in the past years. And although collaborations between artists coming from different language regions in Belgium seem to happen more often than roughly 10 years ago, we still felt like there could be more interaction between artists from Wallonia, Brussels, and Flanders. On top of that, we also wanted to let fans discover new talent from the other side of their language border.
That’s why in collaboration with Aperohit and with the support of the Flemish and Wallonia-Brussels Federation we set up a project to do our part in connecting both artists and fans from all over Belgium.

To start the project, we decided to bring back our frequently requested Chase Verses video concept, but with a little twist! Each video of our upcoming 5 part miniseries will be an on-the-spot collaboration between artists from different language regions who would otherwise never have worked together. The writing sessions and recordings took place at Katch Music Studios. We will release a new Chase Verses video each Friday at 14h for the next 5 weeks. Subscribe to our YouTube channel to not miss out.

The project will have its apotheoses on Saturday, November 27 when 32 artists from both the Flemish, French as well as the German-speaking parts of Belgium will perform and exhibit at the Urban32 festival in Brussels.
