Today is a good day, because we are talking about the music coming out of the Netherlands! I find it so interesting that NL is such a hodgepodge of really exciting music! And I was lucky enough to find three acts that all different genres!
The first is a new band Seven Waters. They are a female fronted melodic and progressive heavy metal band, with members Robert Molenaar on drums, Maarten Vloon does keys, Henk Kamermans plays bass, Michiel Leijzer is on guitars with Karen Leijzer is the vocalist. I didn’t find them, they actually found me on Twitter and followed me back in 2014, but now they don’t follow me. I haven’t forgotten about them and usually kick myself for not talking about them on here for their native homeland.
Second is R3hab, who is a DJ that’s been around a long time, he’s been making music sine the late 90’s, been working with other Dutch DJs like Hardwell (who I mentioned in 2015) and Afrojack. He mainly plays the subgenre house. I actually have a love/hate relationship with house music in general, but I do find myself loving a lot of his music though.
Lastly is an R&B artist by the name of Natalie La Rose. I heard about her in late 2015, but didn’t find out that she was Dutch until November 2016 after the song “The Right Song” by Tiesto and Oliver Heldens. Sadly I’ve only heard her music periodically, I remember hearing “Somebody” playing on the radio for a few months before fading out but I haven’t heard anything else from since early-2016.
I’m running out of Dutch music to talk about on Tune Tuesday, if you know of any artists or bands that you think I should share on here, let me know!
