Thijsenterprise (Reinier Thijs) is a Dutch musician living in Barcelona who makes hip-hop beats by chopping soul and jazz samples, using raw drums and dirty bass lines, all for the love of the perfect loop. Last year he released “Je Hebt De Boem En De Klap” as the duo 2-Two Legged Dogs, and as a solo artist he released “Stepbacks & Setbacks” and the EP “Dokkum”. He plans to drop a new full-length instrumental hip-hop album in spring 2019.
For this mix Thijsenterprise goes back and forth between classic hip-hop and underground instrumentals to the original samples, while also playing modern interpretations. He highlights his personal heroes, ranging from jazz musicians to beat makers. Thereby he shows the impact of these producers on modern music, including the impact on his own music.
