Antwerp's abrahamblue soaked up inspiration from a wide spectrum of genres in his youth. From classic Arab singers like Fairuz and Abdel Halim Hafez to Michael Jackson, Beethoven and Bach. Then he discovered jazz: abrahamblue would combine this genre with nineties hip hop, soul and gospel to create his own eclectic style. His search for a unique, melodic groove led to him winning the award for Most Promising Artist of the Year at the Red Bull Elektropedia Awards. His first EP, ‘Tracks I made Last Summer’ has since been played by BBC Radio 1 and Studio Brussel.
