Also, this’ll be the first time I’ll be playing with my fellow-Gado Deniz Karaman, aka Mr.Strangé

Music: ‘Haas & Hahn: This is not the end’

After the full documentary Miguel Narings and VICE (for HUB Footwear) made about ‘Haas & Hahn’, the Dutch duo that painted entire streets in Philadelphia and the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, they decided to go back to Philly and see how the project had turned out.

Watch the full length documentary (with music by yours truly) here. Awesome watch! For this follow-up video, they used some music from my Eunice EP, which is still available as a free download! 


Event: Davulun Sesi vol. 2 release


February will see the release of the second installment of ‘Davulun Sesi’, a compilation of instrumental hiphop, beats and electronica by Turkish producers. Huge line-up on the tracklist, proud to be on this one! There will be a release party on February 8th, at Istanbul’s Babylon venue. Some of the producers on the compilation will play, joined by special guest Onra! Looking forward to this one, big up Tektosag, big up RBMA!

Interview: One Small Seed

I recently did an interview with the wonderful people over at one small seed, a great South African magazine on popular culture in the broadest sense. Love their website, and of course it’s great to see the ‘Eunice EP' getting picked up in SA!

Event: RBMA x Eight Magazine x Amsterdam Dance Event

Besides playing at the North Sea Jazz Club this Friday for Amsterdam Dance Event, with Portico Quartet and Hidden Orchestra amongst others (RSVP), there is more ADE-related news. Eight Magazine, a ‘young contemporary art magazine’, collaborated with the Red Bull Studio in Amsterdam on a very nice project. 8 graphic artists teamed up with 8 groups/musicians, that all spent a day at the studio together. A piece of art ánd a new track were created during that day. I’ve collaborated with Boston Strip soundman Mudde on the music, and my good friend Freshco did the artwork. The results can be seen and heard in the ADE Festival Lounge at Stanislavski, where you can also pick up your free copy of the magazine. Or, you can just listen to it here:

Music: ‘Eunice EP’ - Free download

More new music! Amsterdam’s MC Theatre asked me to make some music inspired by their Nina Simone tribute-play, Nina (A)Live. That sounded pretty cool to me, and the result is a little 7-track EP, with vocals by Ninthe (who you can also hear on ‘Rise & Shine’), and including remixes by Saux and Julien Mier. It also contains a re-mixed version of the song ‘Twelve’, that previously appeared on 22Tracks’ ‘22Beats’ compilation. Good news: it’s free!

LFMC warrior Atlynn Vrolijk made a video for the first single ‘Black Smoke’, which you can see below. Stream and/or download the entire project on Soundcloud or Bandcamp.
