Made in Belgium: Flip Kowlier

In the past I have presented the dialect hiphop band 't Hof van Commerce to you.  One of their MC's Flip Kowlier went solo and went through his own musical evolution. From a sincere fuck you to the relaxing coccooning in the sun sound of Swimming Pool, he explores different styles.   His last record "Ottoradio" brought out in 2010  proofs that reggae beats and a local strong dialect mix well.   Jan heard a few songs and immediately bought the record full of enthousiasm. My sceptiscism melted soon ... Just sit back and listen and you'll surely get a smile on your face as well .

I can't understand it either, but I do love it. He's got kind of a reggae vibe, but it's very easy to listen to.

@Lilacspecs: don't worry...most Belgians don't understand what he sings. I understand what it's about but can't "translate" each single word either

OK, it makes me feel better to read these comments because I just came here to say: ik. versta. geen. word. hiervan.

I like his music, though! :-)
