In fact, Two Tone will tell anyone willing to listen that Hip Hop thrives in the desert kingdom most known for its booming economy, concentration of wealth, architectural wonders and luxurious resorts.Read More...
Two Tone is the personification of the thriving and lively Hip Hop Scene in Dubai. After perfecting his craft on the streets of the Netherlands and making connections with the legends of Hip Hop in the U.S., Two Tone is now the leader of a growing network of Hip Hop artists that are thriving in the Emirates.
Two Tone takes his name from his unique vocal style. He raps in both a low and high pitch voice, depending on his mood and the nature of the beat. Although born in the Netherlands to parents of Moroccan descent, Two Tone considers himself a Hip Hop ambassador for the world and is determined to make Dubai and the Emirates synonymous with Hip Hop.
Two Tone discovered Hip Hop on the streets of the Netherlands and was immediately drawn to the seductive beat of this popular music genre. HE will be the first to describe himself as a “thugged out” Moroccan roaming the Dutch streets looking for a purpose in life. He found that purpose in Hip Hop and street rap. Two Tone began his Hip Hop career rapping on the streets and following in the footsteps of street rap pioneers Waka Flocka Flame, Ice-T and Krayzie Bone from the world famous Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. IT didn’t take long for Two Tone and his unique vocal style to get recognized and he soon found himself in the studio working with industry heavyweights and pumping out hit sounds. His most recent hit is the beat “Senorita” that hit the biggest radio stations in Morocco and Dubai and became a monster hit in both countries. Two Tone teamed with Cuban artist Erick Machado and Reggeaton heavyweight Nengro Flow on the song and the final result is a beat that is now spreading the vocal sounds of Two Tone around the world.
Not content to rest on his laurels, Two Tone is back in the studio working with Grammy winner and world renowned producer RedOne on his latest single, “My Religion.” With a release date in summer 2014, the song is destined to become Two Tone’s next international hit. In support of his music and to spread his voice and message to new fans in unfamiliar places, Two Tone takes every opportunity to perform in front of live audiences and is a regular at large music events and festivals in Dubai, Morocco, the Dominican Republic and Spain.
Two Tone is also ready to enter a new stage of his Hip Hop career and has spent the past five years laying the groundwork for his own music label, Selfmade Entertainment DBX. The label name is a bold statement for this artist who decided on a Hip Hop path and rose through the ranks to make a name for himself in an unlikely place. The new label will be based in Dubai and the music emanating from its studio will celebrate the glitter and glamour of Dubai and reflect Two Tone’s respect and admiration for his new home base. That respect and admiration is impossible to miss for anyone who has seen a Two Tone video which are always filled with fast cars, beautiful buildings and the stunning landscapes of the jewel of the Emirates.
In many ways, Two Tone is what Dubai was waiting for. The love of Hip Hop was there, but it needed a face and a voice to burst onto the international scene. Two Tone is now that face and voice and it is no surprise that every time he posts something new on SoundCloud, Twitter or Facebook it blows up across the region. The style and imagery that Two Tone brings to his music touches something inside Hip Hop fans in Dubai and they are proud to have him as their representative to the world.
