Dragonfruit is “Born out of a love for sample hip-hop and neo-soul”. The band from Rotterdam, The Netherlands lays down a chilled yet danceable sound that is characterised by their love for samples, organic electronics, rich lo-fi textures. Influenced by a multitude of sounds ranging from the bouncy drums of hip-hop to the lush melodies of R&B and the energy of club bangers, the band puts itself on the forefront of the modern R&B landscape. Hailing from Rotterdam, The Netherlands, the band has already created a buzz for themselves with their singles ‘’Wasted’’ ‘’Apples’’ and ‘’Some Say’’, tracks that received special love from several publications, including Earmark, KALTBLUT, Stereofox and Somewhere Soul. Signed by Amsterdam’s boutique label Super-Sonic Jazz Records, Dragonfruit lands perfectly into a growing scene of jazz loving, soul performers with lively beats and rich energy. On October 17, Dragonfruit will present their debut album during the Amsterdam Dance Event with a live show at Paradiso.
For this event a Paradiso membership is required, which can be purchased here.
