Release on Black Star label: Deventer Vibes! (September 2013)
A project by Black Star producer Asher E with young hip hop artists from his hometown Deventer.
After the success of Dub & Dwars (reggae album with Dutch hiphop artist Brainpower, 2010) Asher E recorded an album with young local hiphop talent from his hometown Deventer (Holland).
Open studio sessions
In 2011 and 2012 Black Star producer Asher E opened the doors of his home studio (Deventer). He got in contact with some local hip hop artists, who loved the reggae riddims Asher E had been producing over the years. Every Sunday afternoon, these young upcoming hip hoppers came to the studio to spit their lyrics on the reggae beats. The word was spreading fast in Deventer town and very soon Asher E’s studio was filled with young and local talent. Asher E has selected the 10 best songs and Deventer Vibes was a fact.
The first performance (try-out) by Asher E and a small selection of the Deventer hip hop crew, took place at the 10-year anniversary of Black Star Foundation on March 22, 2013 in Melkweg (Amsterdam, Holland).
The official release party will take place on Saturday. November 2nd. in Burgerweeshuis, Deventer (Holland)!
All reggae riddims are written and produced by Asher E. The result is a very versatile compilation album with different upcoming local artists.
