Born and raised in Holland, Wantigga has found himself among the most admired growing artists in the Amsterdam music scene. Wantigga was recently awarded platinum status for his track ‘Lové’, a collaboration with the French rapper, Damso. If history repeats itself, ‘Suddenly Everything’ will be the next big hit, attracting a wave of new fans from across the world. Discerning members of the electronica community are already claiming street credit for following the artist from the very beginning as they anticipate his inevitable rise as an iconic international producer.
With Wantigga’s healthy track record of playing in front of a full-house, his EP release party on April 5th is expected to be no different. Wantigga’s shows are well-known for their high energy and flooding in wild crowds. Party-goers are invited to experience the new album live for the first time at the Tolhuistuin, Amsterdam. Fans and fellow producers have already been vocal with their praise. The well-renowned French producer, Sam Tiba, was one of the first to compliment the new album, saying ‘Great EP, I’m lovin’ the Introlude a lot. It sounds like it was made by a genius baby.’
The Introlude establishes an overall feel of the EP, while ‘Fire’ comes on second delivering the sweet sound of hip-trap. Followed by ‘Come Find Me’ and ‘Meditation’, with gratifying melodies that set a whole new standard for downtempo tunes. In an interview with Wantigga he said, ‘This EP is the result of months of experimenting with different genres and sounds. I was looking for a way to create something new while maintaining the soulful R&B vibe that I love in music. The music I listen to is diverse and includes a lot of genres, this reflects in my music.’
‘Slowly’ is already proving to be a fan favourite, praised for its chill vibe and compelling vocalist, Merryn Jeann. It’s no surprise that listeners feel a sense of unwinding when listening to this track, as Merryn deliberately wrote the lyrics for the song to be mindfully enjoyed. ‘This song is a reminder for me and hopefully for you, to keep integrity and not forget all of the beauty that can sometimes be lost in moments that are only and always temporary’, said Merryn. Also being new to the music industry, Merryn finds humour in the fact she is now ‘part of an industry that makes money from sensitive people’s thoughts and feelings’.
