Micklaay - Loosin’ The Tape”
Hailing from Amsterdam, Micklaay is driven, passionate and charismatic artist who set out to deliver his own twist to an eclectic blend of reggaeton, urban, dancehall and hip-hop.
With his soldier-like attire, Micklaay is almost like a militant for great sound and inspirational vibes within the blossoming central Eclectic Dancehall Scene !
Micklaay’s latest EP, “Loosin’ The Tape” (Universiality Entertainment) features 10 tracks that bridgess the gaps between the warmth and feel of the Caribbean groove, as well as the focus and energy of contemporary urban productions. The release goes one step further with a bunch of outstanding featured artists; from Kqueens (The Camp of Alliance) to Kalibwoy and others representing the Eclectic Dancehall Scene.
Watch out for this EP, as well as for upcoming album “Ghostpepper" (nov. 8th) and ”Morning Glory Riddim" featuring various artists (nov 20th)
Micklaay came from a very musical family in the Netherlands, but in spite of that (or maybe because of that) his approach to music was not purely academic, but more instinctive. He always felt a unique connection with grooves and rhythms, and although he never learned the “proper thing to do” (aka, reading notations), he managed to acquire a personal and unique talent for sound manipulating and song-writing. Eventually, he started to produce music at the tender age of 13, and never stopped ever since. As a result, his unique blend of dancehall, reggae ton and urban sounds managed to stir quite a buzz within the international music scene, eventually topping international dancehall charts!
2014 is going to be a very busy year for Micklaay, with a brand new EP “Loosin’ The Tape”, a full length album “Ghostpepper” and a riddim featuring various artists (Morning Glory Riddim) on the way!
These many releases are a reflection of Micklaay’s versatility and dynamic approach: his signature sound is warm, punch and balanced, and things get even more interesting when collaborators add their own twist to the music in many different ways!
