Singer and songwriter Pete Philly and producer Perquisite first crossed paths in Amsterdam. Perquisite, who also ran the Dutch nu-jazz/hip-hop label Unexpected Records, recognized potential in the Aruba-born singer, and vice versa, leading to the release of their collaborative album, Mindstate. Afterward, both went their separate ways, but the duo decided to reunite for a grand concert at AFAS Live in early 2023. Additionally, Pete & Perq announced the upcoming release of a new album scheduled for spring 2024. Their first single, ‘Hot Sauce,’ has already been named TopSong on Radio 2; they recently performed their second single, ‘Mayhem,’ live on Sophie & Jeroen. To celebrate the release of their third album, the duo will embark on a European tour in May 2024, including a performance at PAARD on Friday, May 17. Their music can be best described as hip-hop with influences from jazz, the sixties, and electro.
