Hasselt crowns Rian Snoeks, Aster and Lo-Lee-Ta as Limburg’s first ‘Sound Track’ winners
'Muziekodroom' in Hasselt, 'Ancienne Belgique’ in Brussels, 'Trix' in Antwerp and more joined forces for the first edition of 'Sound Track'. A competition hosted in every Flemish province where artists of any genre are given a unique chance to shift up a gear. Last night we were present at the finale in Hasselt.
Muziekodroom, Rock Herk, De Serre Hasselt, Pukkelpop and Absolutely Free Festival hosted four previous selection rounds in Limburg in which the most talented artists were chosen to compete in the finale. Hip-hop duo Chaz & Djalu (Jonas & Gianluca) made it to the final round. The two young rappers from Genk brought fresh music to the table and are helping to shape Limburg's hip-hop scene.
But only three winners could go home with a prize. They will receive a suitable course in which everything is possible for a whole year. From personal supervision and recording time in professional studios to national exposure. You name it!
AND THE WINNERS ARE...
We remember Rian Snoeks from our 'Chase Open Mic' afternoon at Begijnhof in Hasselt. He was the opener of the night and performed one power rap after the other. He's a sixteen-year-old rapper from Pelt (Limburg). His eccentric beats and lyrical message create an own style. Rian's reaction to winning? "This feels so crazy. This is really insane. I'm very thankful. Let's see what this new year is going to bring. Cheers!"
Last night's second winner is Aster, a singer-songwriter from Hasselt known for his voice and guitar. He performed a killer show in De Serre during one of the 'Sound Track' selection rounds and was rewarded with the loudest applause that sent him straight to the finale.
Lo-Lee-Ta, a band from Maasmechelen was the closing act of the evening. They were the third act to bring home a prize. The band that brings dark pop to the stage, consists of a singer, a guitarist and a bass player. The trio describes their music as a 'black and white movie'.
We look forward to see what's in store for them in 2020!
