Op uitnodiging van Gemeente Groningen, partner in Music Cities Network zijn ROOKS, Alumni en DMT van 19 tot 26 mei te gast bij Promus Aarhus voor een studio week samen met andere hiphop artiesten uit Denemarken.
‘The goal is to connect the participants directly with each other by using the MCN membercities and their connected networks as a gateway, utilising their already existing structures, knowledge and hubs.’
Op 25 mei treden zij op op het Aarhus Volume Festival, jaarlijks hiphopfestival in Aarhus (Denemarken).
ROOKS Last year he went to Aarhus for the Musiclab and Writingscamp but he wasn’t the main act, that was Yung Hendrixxx. He is honored and excited to be a part of the show agin and one of the main acts this year.He likes to share his experiences with others, make beautiful things together.
Shows that he did were Pop stage Simplon in Groningen, where he was the opening act for “ZWART LICHT “. He performed at the National Freedom Festival day called “5th of May” in Groningen and the Block Jam festival of Urban House Groningen July 2018.
His last show of 2018 was on the 7th of December, this was the release party for his first ep “ROLEX ROOKS”. In January 2019 Rooks debuted during Eurosonic Noorderslag and now he is doing his first high school tour in Groningen and recently reached the finals of one the biggest talent shows for the Urban scene of the Netherlands called “Grote Prijs van Nederland”. This is all including with dj/producer Emage.
Hungry for their passion, Alumni, three students from Groningen start making music. Flows & Wagwan start rapping and Dallah DJ’s. Near the end of 2018 the video ‘Club’ is released on YouTube, a party anthem, The song catches 10.000 streams in the first month. With this beautiful beginning of their journey, Alumni is inspired and motivated to work even harder. In November 2018 they do their first show in Simplon under the coaching of Roberto Tan, and in December they organize their very own Alumni Houseparty. Their goal is to give their audience a lot of energy.
DMT His name is Dion van Zeumeren, and he produce under the alias of DMT. He makes what most people would describe as loud experimental beats with a whole lot of bass. He makes every sound himself, so no samples. The way he designs his sound originates from artists like Noisia, Posij and Former. Making lo-fi cheesy beats is a guilty pleasure of Dion.
In 2018 waren we er ook bij met Cloudy Diow & Yung Hendrixx
