Dutch Rap/Pop Singers?
Does anyone know of good female Dutch pop singers? Idk why but I don't really listen to males sing, it's not as good. Female rapper is good too.
I like electronic music, stuff with bass. I guess if there's a Dutch equivalent of Yelle that'd be cool. XD
Anyone know some good female dutch rappers or pop singers?
FYI There have been some threads on Dutch music (in general) before:
I can't think of any similar to Yelle, but quickly scanning for female rappers/pop singers in those threads. Not much music with a lot of bass, also I didn't find any female rappers, weird how rare they are, I can easily name quite some male rappers. The first 2/3 in the list below only sing in Dutch if I'm correct, the last 3 only in English, Wende Snijders has sung a lot in French, Ellen ten Damme in German, but both also sing in Dutch:
- Eefje de Visser
- Liesbeth List
- Wende Snijders
- Ellen ten Damme
- Ilse de Lange
- Within Temptation (not really pop…but talking about a female voice…)
Not exactly what I'm looking for, but I bought three songs by Eefje de Visser so thanks. I'm looking for something that sounds electronic/up-beat but with vocals. So like if Animals by Martin Garrix had female vocals, I would fangirl a lot. XD
I'll give anyone a lingot if they can find someone for me to fangirl over!
I'm interested in the male rapper list! :) I like basically exactly what was described in the beginning of the thread, but I prefer male vocals. haha
Ok that's a lot easier, here are some Dutch hip hoppers/rappers:
- Urban Dance Squad
- Osdorp Posse
- Postmen / Postman
- De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig
- Flinke Namen
- The Opposites
- Gers Pardoel
- Ali B
- Lange Frans & Baas B
Between this list and things that were linked off of videos by some of these guys, I have found so much stuff. Fantastic. Thanks!
So far, my favorite is Sef, who got linked from one of those. haha. What do you like to listen to?
You're welcome. Actually I'm not too much into hip hop, so most of these are simply big hits.
- Urban Dance Squad - Good Grief (and yes...Rage Against The Machine drew more than a little bit of inspiration from this
- Extince - Kaal of Kammen
- Brainpower - Dansplaat
- Osdorp Posse - Origineel Amsterdams (basically a slang dictionary on record)
- De Jeugd Van Tegenwoordig - Sterrenstof (fantastic lyrics)
- Gers Pardoel - Neem Je Mee
- Lange Frans & Baas B - Zinloos
This list is probably a good start to learn more Dutch hip hop.
Some examples of what I personally like better are, e.g.
- Golden Earring Paradise in Distress and She Flies On Strange Wings
- Brainbox - Summertime (George Gershwin cover)
- Herman Brood & His Wild Romance Saturday Night
- Doe Maar Pa and De Bom
- Acda & De Munnik Het Regent Zonnestralen
- De Dijk Dansen op de Vulkaan
- Van Dik Hout Stip aan de Hemel, Pijn (with Herman Brood
- Cuby + Blizzards Window of My Eyes
- Spinvis Wespen Op De Appeltaart and Aan De Oevers Van De Tijd
- Boudewijn de Groot Jimmy
- C-Mon & Kypski Make my Day
I can't tell if she's any good, but Rosa Ana is a dutch female rapper... : )
I'm commenting on here so I can get to this thread quickly later. I can't listen to anything right now, but I've been looking for Dutch rap all week and it didn't even remotely cross my mind to ask about it on here. I was looking for something else and as I was scrolling by this thread I was like "....oh man, what?!" and am pretty excited.
I like electronic male rap that isn't in English a lot (specific, I know) and I'm not picky about lyric clarity/quality. The only thing I've found in my searching that I really like is this group De Kraaien, who I immediately loved. They're a little ridiculous, but that's what I wanted.
Also, Yelle is the bomb. :)
