NYC update

CMJ LOGO

We are in NYC for a week now and we’ve¬† already been all over the place! Preliminary to our showcase on CMJ (Oct 22nd in 92Y Tribeca) a lot happened:

First of all we did an interview for WNYU (New York University radio) to promote our showcase  and to show these college kids how we roll in Holland!

Second of all we did an interview and photo shoot for Word Up on a very special location: a rooftop in the heart of Manhattan! The interview will be on their website soon, so make sure you’ll check it out!

After the CMJ showcase we will do an interview for MTV, which will be on the front page of the MTV website!

This afternoon Melodee will participate in a CMJ panel about international hiphop at 3.30 PM at the New York University (NYU Kimmel Center, 8th Floor, Shorin, Room 802), which is gonna be really interesting!

We’ve also been invited to do another show in NYC, on Friday October 23rd during Turntables on the Hudson in Plan B. A great hiphop party which is gonna be a blast!

It’safe to say we’re having a great time in the¬† Big Apple and hope to be back soon to promote our new EP, which will be released by the end of the year.

We hope to see ya’ll at one of our shows!!
