The Dutch beat maestro is back with Smoetsie, his third release. (No pun intended!) It’s not been that long since we discovered Thijsenterprise and his sophomore release, Stepbacks & Setbacks. It’s actually been 6 months between that album and his latest offering which is a long time in an age of Bandcamp hip hop. This one is called Smoetsie (Dutch slang for “smutty) and it’s a concept…

Single #4 from The Strangest Freaks comes in the form of worldly “Jaffa”. We featured The Strangest Freaks a while back when they dropped Check Out The Sound with Dudley Perkins. Their eclectic sounds continue with “Jaffa”, the fourth single from their debut album “Thrills Galore”. The best way for me to describe it is to ay its an audio bazaar. The instrumentation is diverse…

Hip hop duo The Strangest Freaks drop “Check Out The Sound”, the first single from their upcoming debut album “Thrills Galore”. Remember BINKBEATS? Well, together with his fellow Dutch compatriot PRY, they have formed The Strangest Freaks. With a name like that, you’d expect something far from the over-sanitised slickness of commercial music and you’d be correct; this is light years away and that’s just…

Dutch producer Pelle’s Chinese Funk was created from sounds and samples found during his travels through China. This one is ideal for the late nights, wherever you are. Pelle is a producer from the Netherlands and his EP called Chinese Funk is comprised of sounds and titbits picked up from his journey in China during an internship in the country. The release is a relaxation…

Dutch producer Stan Forebee offers up a mellow remix of Flying Lotus’ Siren Song. Just what I needed at 1am on a Saturday night/morning. The Netherlands’ is a hot bed for hip hop talent, from Nicolay to Nubbz to Beatsofreen and Stan Forebee is no exception. Taking inspiration from Flying Lotus’ Siren Song, Forebee created a chilled out masterpiece worthy of anyone’s ear space. Stream it…

The Netherlands’ Beatsofreen returns after a mini break with the ambient yet bouncy Deliverance. Sometimes you need a rest after hard work. Dutch producer Beatsofreen felt he deserved less A&R and more R&R after finishing off his forthcoming EP “Dimensions” and his debut LP “Full Circle” (which has been four years in the making). Out of that silence comes a new single release called Deliverance….

BINKBEATS returns with the sixth instalment of his Beats Unraveled series, this time with an emphatically produced “J Dilla Live Mixtape”. Just when you thought this guy couldn’t get any better, he steps his game up for the man that is J Dilla. In the sixth edition of his Beats Unraveled series, BINKBEATS decided to go all out and do a medley of Dilla classics,…

Nubbz from the Netherlands collates all of his remixes into one mini EP called Till Sunset. 2012 was something of a succinct year for Nubbz in terms of his output. Rather than releasing a bunch of mixtapes and albums, he kept it simple by throwing up remixes when he felt the time was right. As we get a little antsy for a full length release,…

Moods breaks audible limits with his latest track, Infinite. The title for this track couldn’t be more appropriate. Using some field recordings, Rotterdam’s Moods has created Infinite, a crackling synth groove but what makes the title so apt? According to the man himself, he implemented some new techniques including “lots of sidechaining” which is evident in the ear drum thumping kick and oscillating background melodies….

Shak gives us some of that future bass on his free EP, Empty Rooms. INI Movement are a Dutch artistic platform that combine the arts and artists of multiple disciplines through events and projects, whether that be as a label, event planners or curators of art. Young producer Shak had the honour of dropping INI’s 10th release. His deep soulful approach to bass music is…
