A raw and trippy hip-hop ensemble from Amsterdam
Their unusual mix of raw, groovy jazzhiphop combined with absurd but meaningful Dutch lyrics results in a mind blowing sensation. Like a trip to a comfortable nightmare, De Nachtdienst takes you along to a stormy world without rules, until the early morning.
1st price Most Wanted 2015, a Hiphop talent price presented by Grap Amsterdam Popmusic. The jury noticed and valued: “ a dope stage presence and experimental live show. De Nachtdienst presented a quality performance that’s ready for all established music festivals“.
￼“And The Best Performer of Amsterdam Award 2015 (handed to you by Cata.Pirata) goes to @jimmyguacamole hands down, by far taking you to higher grounds!” – Cata.Pirata, SKIP&DIE
3voor12: “Let’s be fair: we arrive a bit late but just in time at the concert of De Nachtdienst to understand what they mean when they describe their live show as being raw and trippy. This Amsterdam based hip-hop ensemble is granted the same hype and sensation as say a Typhoon and Jungle by Night and their lean towards old school (dutch) hip hop is big. That is why it’s not much of a surprise when they get the whole crowd to go down on their knees for a sit down. The scouting job by 22tracks here is done; now we only need to wait for harvest time.” – Robbie van Zoggel (translation by Claudio Ritfeld)
Fresh Cotton: “This band awaits a golden future. The energy of the band and their frontman is of such height that’s unheard of. We definitely got blown away.” – Nygel Lybiee (translation by Claudio Ritfeld)
