2019 CONCERT lineup
PHAROAHE MONCH /US
Troy Donald Jamerson (born October 31, 1972), better known by his stage name Pharoahe Monch, is an American rapper from Queens, New York. He is known for his complex lyrics, intricate delivery, and internal and multisyllabic rhyme schemes. While a member of the New York City duo Organized Konfusion, Pharoahe Monch developed a reputation as one of underground hip-hop’s preeminent lyricists, crafting intricate and intelligent raps with partner Prince Poetry.
While he didn’t release a second album — Desire — until 2007, he was active throughout the intervening years, with fiery singles like “The Life” (with Styles) and “Agent Orange,” along with featured spots on tracks by Ras Kass, J Dilla, Pete Rock, and Sa-Ra. The wait would be halved for the rapper’s third album, with the conceptual W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) arriving in 2011, four years after 2007’s Desire. His 2014 release, P.T.S.D.: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, was another conceptual effort, this time with guests like Talib Kweli and the psychedelic soul group the Stepkids.
In late 2017 Pharoahe Monch was featured in a song by Keyon Harrold titled “Her Beauty Through My Eyes” from Keyon’s latest album Mugician.

Masta Ace /US
Masta Ace has always managed to remain current and totally classic in the exact same breath. As one of the most imaginative, narrative and prolific lyricists ever to emerge from the mean streets of Brooklyn USA, his albums are like mini-movies. As a matter of fact, the man has been born, and re born, and born yet again.
In his 1988 lyrical debut, he took a stand along side Big Daddy Kane, Kool G. Rap and Craig G on hip hop’s most important posse cut, ‘The Symphony’ . His first full length album, the Marley Marl produced Take A Look Around (1990), established the rookie emcee as a sophisticated voice from the ghetto. Slaughtahouse (1993) was an ingenious conversation with hip hop, as Ace and his incorporated crew took on the entire gangsta rap genre. In 1995, his Sittin’ On Chrome LP unified American car culture as a celebration of rims and rides and rap music. Then after a 6 year hiatus, Ace caught the world off guard with the epic Disposable Arts (2001). This classic theme album, complete with plot, main characters and score, played like a feature film on wax. A Long Hot Summer, (2004), was the prequel to Disposable Arts. These two “flicks”, were connected, and although Ace was the only actual recurring character, the story-lines blended together in a well thought out arrangement. In 2004 he announced that “…Summer” would be his fifth and final solo album. It seems that he was planning a unique and different way to continue making contributions to Hip Hop.
On this year’s A Breukelen Story, both artists paying homage to the borough that raised Ace and the one that Marco now calls home. The collaborative LP addresses the cultural and economic dynamics in the 7-1-8, with carefully chosen guests.

Living up to his name, BlabberMouf practices the energetic rap style rhyming on boombap beats of the earlier ’90s. Growing up in a former coalmine city where this type of Hip-Hop never left, he provides the world with his tunes from the center of Europe.
After dropping “Greatest Shits” with hometown crew Het VerZet in early 2012, BlabberMouf closed that same year with the release of his album “From The Top Of The Stack”. A collabo album produced by friend DJ Propo’88 with whom, amongst others, he formed another crew, Da Shogunz. The CD format hit the streets packaged in a wooden cover with laser engraved artwork and set the specific Hip-Hop style of the emcee & producer. A style for which both artists and crew are known: Organic, pure, original Hip-Hop in its most raw form. To continue on this path, ‘From The Top Of The Stack’ was released on vinyl two years later. The album has taken BlabberMouf’s music and live shows on a trip throughout the world, experiencing the warm-hearted Hip-Hop culture in the entire European continent.
While still on tour, BlabberMouf started working on “The BlabberMouf LP” that was released in 2015. Although Propo’88 was only responsible for a few beats on this album, he approached the project similar to ‘From The Top Of The Stack’. By recording, mixing, arranging and producing the album, Propo’88 laid his sense and soul in the new album. BlabberMouf’s fast and tempo switching raps that balance on the edge of not being human, are taking the lead in this album as always.
The aftermath of the album included a two-year tour all around the globe. Not only West- and East Europe, but also South America jumped on the train with shows in Colombia, Chili and Ecuador. In 2017 he released a new album called Da Flowin’ Dutchman, which made an even bigger name for himself.
