The summer of 2009 in music: Diggy Dex ft. Eva de Roovere: Slaap lekker
The exceptionally mild & sunny September is now in the past and all last traces of summer are gone. Fortunately there's still good music to listen to in order to relive that summer feeling.
This song always made me turn up the radio each time. It's such a beautiful mixture of the soft warm delicate voice from Eva De Roovere and the energetic mix of DJ Diggy Dex. A fun contrast between the Flemish accent and Dutch one, the folky pop song and the rap.
(background: Eva De Roovere is a well known flemish singer-song writer with a folk background known for her pure simple songs. Yet she doesn't frequent the hitparade. The song "Fantastig toch" was written while watching her sleeping boyfriend. It got picked up by the Dutch DJ last year and became a hit in the early summer in the Netherlands and Belgium afterwards).
