Roskilde Festival hereby reveals the first names to play the new stage, Cosmopol. The stage is a brand new hot spot for underground urban genres and will sparkle with hip hop, R’n’B, global beats and rhythms, neo-soul and music from the more organic electronic scene.
Mit dabei auf der neuen Bühen sind (unter anderem):
MAHMOUD AHMED (ETH) is an African James Brown with his characteristic mixture of funk, jazz and soul.
JUNKYARD PRODUCTIONS (DK) dole out warm, lazy and sexy Jamaica dub.
K’NAAN (SOM) might just turn out to be one of tomorrow’s hip hop stars due to his organic and, at first listen, very African expression combined with the attitude and references of the North American scene.
STONES THROW RECORDS have recently released a vista of the label’s first 10 years as a breeding ground for cutting-edge hip hop. At Roskilde, the label brings along PEANUT BUTTER WOLF, J-ROCC, ALOE BLACC, PERCEE P & GUILTY SIMPSON (US), who present a similar re-cap of a decade’s deviations in dirty beats and rhymes – a virtual cornet of hip hop treats.
