Producer Willem Ardui and rapper Jean Atohoun (stage name Jay Walker) make high-quality English-language hip-hop in Antwerp that is marinated in jazz and soul. The pace is slow, the presentation is casual and the atmosphere is chill but also exuberant. To be summarized as: music to sink deep into.
The Antwerp with Congolese roots is not easy to capture. She combines irresistible soul and R&B with white-hot raps and striking beats. It already resulted in catchy singles such as "Ain't Chasing Pavements" and "My Tomorrow" and support acts for stars such as Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West and De La Soul.
