There’s some things in life you can’t do without. Some cook, others do sport. I do music.
7 years ago I met Sami aka Mihas. At the time I was just starting to make my own beats and he was the first to hear my demo. Our first song was “Tu connais rien du scarla” (You don’t know about the man) and became our manifesto for all our future plans. The song exemplifies the meeting of a true hip hop MC from the suburbs and a little Parisian producer drawing influences from electro, grime and dance.
We strive to come up with popular, urban songs that go beyond “pure hip hop” (you know boom boom tchak). Anyway, we just released “Un état“, our latest music video and are looking forward to our next release, a 20 track mix tape called “Jurassic”, which will be available very soon. In the meantime, check out this interview, recorded 2 years ago, which I especially translated into English for you (so watch it!).

Hello, I’m Sean, nice to meet you!
I’ve just arrived at Dolly Rogers, from England, to take a position as Junior Graphic Designer. If you would like to know, I come from a small town called Newcastle-under-Lyme…it’s located within Stoke-on-Trent (also known as ‘the Potteries’). Josiah Wedgwood was born there…never mind, what really matters is that my new home is Amsterdam and I can’t wait to get started on the exciting projects here at Dolly Rogers.
I hope to make more blog posts soon with the weird and wonderful events that happen both here in Amsterdam and at Dolly Rogers.
PS - ’Ay up Duck‘, for those of you left confused by the title, is a typical greeting from my home town and is only used for very special people like yourselves.
The great thing about working at Dolly Rogers is that they share with you some true pieces of wisdom. Here is one gem from Chris I heard in my first month – and no, this is not an excuse to draw dinosaurs.
