You might remember the Dutch band Kern Koppen from last year’s collaboration with South African artists Zuluboy, Zonke and EJ von Lyrik. (At the occasion of the World Cup, they called it Skop Gat.) Why their subsequent hit ‘Me Eigen’ didn’t travel beyond Holland’s airwaves, I still don’t know. The above music video (‘Geen Zweet’/No Sweat) is more recent. Low Countries soul at its best. About all those orange hatters plunging themselves into the sea: that’s what they do, each New Year.

See you Monday.
