Chase Verses - EDDY APE & ASZUL (prod. by TWXNTYTWO)
It’s here! The final episode of this series of Chase Verses. And what a duo to wrap it up with. We’ve got Brussels superstar Eddy Ape, rapping alongside drop-dead gorgeous singer Aszul. Twxntytwo brought a bouncy, fun beat to bring your moods to 100.
If you’ve been keeping up, you’ve already heard of Urban32. The free festival in Brussels is a collaboration between Aperohit, Chase, and a bevy of other partners/sponsors. There will be performances by artists from the past 5 Chase Verses, but that’s not all. You can expect DJ sets, cyphers (yes, you can win a prize), workshops, exhibitions, etc. The goal of the festival: highlight young talent from all over Belgium and give them a platform to perform and connect with other young musicians.
The festival will take place on Saturday, November 27. Even though it’s free, make sure to register through this link.
The blue checkmark on IG might already give it away, but Eddy Ape is already an established name in the Belgian hip-hop scene. The young Bruxellois with the good vibes and shiny grills makes it impossible for listeners to be in a shitty mood.
The ingredients to his catchy sounds: a beat that is equal parts soothing and danceable, usually produced by long-term collaborator, Ekany. Mix in a unique flow, and you’ve got a recipe for success.
Aszul was not going to let the pandemic stand in the way of her ambitions. While performing live is important for young, upcoming artists, there are other ways to showcase your talent. The singer bolstered the power of social media and held “Sunday Sessions” from her bed, which proved very successful in getting her name out.
Besides being a gifted singer, Aszul is also a trained dancer. Note for the next Chase Verses: include choreography.
Brussels-based producer Twxntytwo has already worked with names like Caballero, Isha, or Krisy and now brings his bouncy beats to Katch Studio for this season's last Chase Verses.
