IntroDUTCHion – Hessel (ft. Nujabes, Camp Lo, Incise, DJ Krush, CL Smooth & More)

In ‘Introdutchion’ we introduce you to music enthusiasts from our home country; The Netherlands. Dutch folks are known for being modest. But those with a true passion for hip hop, and who are chasing a dream as either a label owner, producer, DJ, or record store owner, deserve some more shine. Because the lowlands have a whole lot more to offer than weed, windmills, and Bossche bollen.

Hessel (28, Leiden) drops biseasonal mixes to showcase the finest in hip hop, trip hop, and jazz music. He recently founded Komorebi Records, with a focus on promoting the same genres. The first release is ‘Evil Deeds’ by German producer LeProdude & New York emcee Awon, and a track release by fellow Dutchie deeB is lined up to be released (which is also featured in this mix by Hessel).
