Just to let you know what I'm doing now we're not touring with Pete & Perq: I'm currently working on the soundtrack for Dutch movie 'Carmen van het Noorden'. The movie, with Tygo Gernandt, Sanguita Akkrum and Thom Hoffman in the lead rolls, will play in theaters this September. For the soundtrack I will work with some of the dopest Dutch HipHop-artists, including GMB, Jiggy Dje, Turk, Duvel (DuvelDuvel), Typhoon, Sticks (Opgezwolle) and Sanguita. Check out the promo movie right here (in Dutch only):
On other news, a remix I did of 'A Year And A Bit' for my favourite Dutch rockband Voicst has been released on I-Tunes last week. Check it out by clicking here.

I wanted to let all my people know what I'm up to when I'm not doing the Pete & Perq thing. I'm playing the lead in this play called "The Man From Nowhere". We're in the middle of presenting our first try outs this week, after which we'll keep developing the play and go on tour with it next year. If you're able to come check it, we're doing 3 more tryouts this weekend. To see how to get tickets check this link: http://www.mconline.nl/#/mc/productions/voorstellingen/manfromnowhere

It took us quite some time to read all of the scripts we received for our new video. We received a lot of scripts and there were a lot of original ideas among them but we had to make a choice. So, after we?ve spoken with five different could be directors, we?ve finally chosen the idea of Lucinda Sedoc. In our opinion her script was the most original and also suitable to shoot with mobile phones. The video will be shot under her direction this Wednesday in Amsterdam and will probably air in the first week of February. Stay tuned!
