All Eyes On Hip Hop celebrates its 15th (+1 covid year) anniversary on November 10, 2021, at De Vooruit in Ghent. Get ready for an all-nighter with two of the most exciting hip hop artists of the moment, Central Cee and Pa Salieu, and many more to come. Brought to you by AEOHH, Democrazy and Voo?uit.
ツ Central Cee ツ
Central Cee proves time and time again that he is one of Europe’s most exciting emerging artists. In 2020, he set the UK ablaze with “Loading”. His dynamic, drill-based sound, hitting lyrics and relentless flow make him a force to be reckoned with. His success easily continued until earlier this year, when he released a more traditional take on drill with ‘Pinging (6 Figures)’. ‘Commitment Issues’ in turn earned him a No.9 spot in the UK charts. His debut mixtape, ‘Wild West’, came out in March, and…. well, the streaming numbers speak for themselves. Cee is here to stay.
ツ Pa Salieu ツ
23-year-old Gambian-British rapper Pa Salieu recently won BBC Music’s Sound of 2021, putting him on the map as one of the most sensational talents in the UK. His debut single ‘Frontline’ (2020) was the most played song on BBC Radio 1 Xtra. His Gambian roots can be heard in infectious tracks in which he turns hip-hop, grime, afro beats, and dancehall to his own ends. His sharp and razor-sharp lyrics quickly made him a leading light in contemporary hip-hop. Three years ago Pa Salieu was still recovering from a bullet in the head, today he is ready to play unforgettable live shows with his unique sound and energetic flows.
– 16 years ago (15 + 1 covid years) All Eyes On Hip Hop started as a small concert and party concept in a town in the north of Belgium. As soon as it moved to Ghent, our ambitions and brand grew quickly. From hosting a stage at Lokerse Feesten and Gent Jazz to curating the experimental festival OUT THE FRAME together with Arts Centre Voo?uit, we’ve done and loved it all.
The basic idea behind All Eyes On Hip Hop is to create a vibrant and inclusive vibe for everybody who loves hip-hop music in all its aspects and to unite people from all over Belgium and beyond. In order to broaden our audience, we collaborate with venues, festivals and organizations like Democrazy, Voo?uit, Ancienne Belgique, Trix, Vaartkapoen, Reflektor, Lokerse Feesten and Gent Jazz. In the future, AEOHH will continue and intensify its collaboration with different festivals and venues.
In the words of Red Bull Elektropedia (2017): “After a good 12 years filled with (more or less) 90 events, All Eyes On Hip Hop (AEOHH) is Belgium’s most consistent and defining party in its category. Hypes come and go, but no other event has been steady throughout the years, offering a place in the spotlights for the homegrown acts that deserve your attention, as well as the biggest names from the global theatre. It’s this solid formula – which started off in 2005 at Hoogstraten’s Cahier De Brouillon, expanding to Ghent in 2011 and landing in Brussels and Antwerp in the last two years – that made sure the Belgian hip-hop scene had a solid concept to rely on.”
