Open Mike Eagle

Ghetto superhero comic book flow

 

The L.A. Times touts him as “one of LA’s smartest young voices”. “In a league of his own with an easy, effortless flow”, proclaims leading music magazine Rolling Stone. He also made Pitchfork’s list of the 20 best hip-hop albums of 2017. American prodigy Open Mike Eagle has plenty of accolades to boast about, and boast he might: ‘Brick Body Kids Still Daydream’, released in September 2017, is a gem of a record.

On his fifth LP, the self-proclaimed ghetto superhero draws on his memories of growing up. Michael Eagle was raised in the Robert Taylor Homes, a gigantic social housing project in Chicago. A decade ago, the buildings were torn down one by one, and from the rubble this record would eventually rise. Open Mike Eagle tackles themes such as gentrification, dispossession and racism with his typical, dazzling comic-book flow. On ‘Brick Body Kids Still Daydream’ he brings the projects back to life, reimagining them like mythical pyramids populated by imaginary beings.

Stand-out tracks include ‘95 Radios’, a nostalgic trip down memory lane, ‘Brick Body Complex’, about the striking parallels between people and their homes, and ‘Legend of Iron Hood’, which stands strong alongside the best work of Thundercat and Anderson .Paak. Trust us: you don’t want to miss Open Mike Eagle. Exclusive Belgian show!

Gaika

Electronic UK grime with a twist

 

If we had to try and sum up the work of London-based producer Gaika in just a few words: dark, experimental and catchy as hell. From his debut, the 2015 mixtape ‘Machine’, to the release of ‘Spaghetto’ on the renowned Warp Records, Gaika effortlessly weaves together Caribbean melodies, poltical statements and UK slang. You could call him the torchbearer for a new wave of black, British artists.

The Brixton-born-and-bred musician earned his stripes with Manchester rap crew Murkage. He recently collaborated with transgender hip-hop phenomenon Mykki Blanco. In his solo performances the young producer manages to combine performance art, electronic grime-with-a-twist, triphop, grunge, dancehall and a smattering of Prince. As you can imagine, this makes for a once-in-a-lifetime live experience.

Futuristic beats right from the heart of the London underground scene!

Junglepussy

Pulling apart the patriarchy

 

 

Erykah Badu and Nicki Minaj count themselves among the fans of Shayna McHayle alias Junglepussy. From the beginnings of her personal YouTube channel she grew to become one of the most respected East-Coast rappers of the moment. The Jamaican-Trinidadian artist stands on equal footing with iconic predecessors such as Missy Elliot and Lil’ Kim, delivering an extra punch of humour and self-mockery. Think of the better work of her male counterparts Action Bronson and Ghostface Killah.

In her songs, Junglepussy tackles themes including sexuality, feminism and patriarchal structures. “This pussy don’t pop for you”, as she sums it up in ‘Pop For You’ from her breakthrough album ‘Pregnant with Success’. Junglepussy is also active in the QTPOC movement (queer and trans people of colour), see also: Le1f and Princess Nokia. Expect a set packed full of sexy hooks and tongue-in-cheek lines.

Chynna

Rap’s high priestess

 

Model for Ford, practising Buddhist and Britney Spears fan: Chynna Rogers is not what you would call the average hip-hop artist. Only after some encouragement from A$AP Yams (RIP), one of the core members of the rap collective A$AP Mob, did she head in the direction of a musical career. A good move, as her dark, raw vibes and open-hearted lyrics full of cultural references make her a unique artist.

On her debut EP ‘Ninety’ she looked back on her first ninety days sober after a severe opiate addition. In 2017 she followed this up with ‘Music 2 die 2’, experimental avant-garde hip-hop conjured by a genuine hip-hop high priestess. One of the most authentic voices in rap today.

Stikstof

Streetwise Brussels collective

 

We don’t know what’s in the water in Brussels, but it must be something potent. The list of outstanding hip-hop acts from the capital is starting to grow astoundingly long. You can add Stikstof to the list, the combo headed up by Jazz, Omar-G (aka Zwangere Guy), Rosko and Astrofisiks.

This streetwise Brussels-based collective doles out razor-sharp social commentary, holding a magnifying glass over their lives and their generation. They dispense with the ‘grotesque gibber-gabber about champagne and guns’, favouring introspective rhymes, bone-dry beats instead, and they always raise the roof live. Just the thing for fans of Roméo Elvis, Caballero & JeanJass and Tyler, the Creator.

Blu Samu

 

 

Antwerp born but Brussels based Blu Samu travels through different styles, from hip hop to soul passing by funk.

 

Her songs are a reflection of her inner thoughts and feelings, where modesty has no place. She's part of hip hop group "le 77" and has joined Niveau 4 on stage during Couleur Café also.

Ivan Ave

Norwegian blend of r&b, hip hop & soul

 

Norway has a lot more to offer than oil and scenic cruises along the fjords. Take one of its more interesting exports, rap talent Ivan Ave, who makes irresistible R&B and in 2017 released the excellent ‘Every Eye’ on Jakarta Records. Consequence of Sound had this to say about the record: “an example of the magic that manifests when MCs balance showmanship with substance.”

Ivan Ave generously pumps out grooves that are not infrequently reminiscent of Nas’s ‘Illmatic’ and other nineties gold like The Fugees and Janet Jackson. In this way he’s drawing on similar influences as like-minded souls Kiefer, Kaytranada and Dâm-Funk. His personal lyrics bare his heart and soul. A unique blend of buoyant R&B, hip hop and seventies soul and funk!


 

 

////

FLOHIO

 

Raw, punchy and poetic, SE16 rapper Flohio spits transcendent rhymes that defy easy description. Having already caused a stir for her MC talent on several tracks for excting new producers in theb past 12 months such as God Colony and L-Vis 1990, Flohio will release her own debut EP early 2018.

WWWater

“Utterly charming minimal-electro.” - NME

 

 

Humbling power, sacred shower. Soulwax-protégée Charlotte Adigéry washes over you like a force of nature with a progressive mix of spiky electronics, pulsing drums and an unstoppable voice. Joined live by Steve Slingeneyer (of Soulwax fame) on drums and Bolis Pupul (a DEEWEE regular) on synths, WWWater anoints both your soul and feet. Sometimes soothing, sometimes boiling, but always refreshing. WWWater has a taste of all of’s Adigéry’s influences, ranging from The Slits to Ryoji Ikeda, Shabazz Palaces, Geneva Jacuzzi and Solange.

STRANGE U

Strange U is a collaboration between two UK Hip Hop veterans, King Kashmere and Zygote (aka The Maghreban). and perhaps one the most unique acts to come out of the underground hip hop scene. They blend a careful mixture of social commentary and experimental excellence over left of centre rhythms sent from the mother ship whilst staying 100% Hip Hop. Futuristic, dystopian and downward strange; this is top notch and far out Terminator Funk.

NAH

 

 

NAH is a producer / drummer / visual artist currently located in Philadelphia. Blending live and programmed drums with off-kilter sequenced elements, found sounds, and heavily manipulated samples. NAH produces anxiety-laden tracks and sound collages with firm roots planted in DIY punk, noise, avant jazz, and the restlessness of hip-hop. Since 2011 NAH has produced nearly 30 releases and performed all over the US, UK, Europe, Iceland, Israel, and more.

SCREENING: ‘WORD IS BOND’

 


Belgian premiere of 'Word Is Bond', a documentary by Sacha Jenkins about hip hop

 

 

This documentary film by Sacha Jenkins examines the transformative power of lyrics in the world of hip-hop music. What was born on the streets of the South Bronx has now taken root globally and the young poets of New York have helped to spawn regional dialects everywhere. Through dynamic archival footage, in-depth interviews and excursions with artists like Nas, Tech9, J Cole, Rapsody and Anderson. Paak, the film explores the many dimensions that hip-hop poetics occupy.

dj AZER

 

All Eyes On Hip Hop’s resident dj for over 11 years!

 

A record by A Tribe Called Quest bouncing out of the speakers at a party, that was all it took to convert dj Azer to hip hop. In his own dj sets (Pukkelpop, Couleur Café, with Lefto for StuBru, from the UK to Singapore) he’s not afraid to mix in some jazz, soul, funk, afrobeat, bass and grooves.
