Refections on decolonisation and sauvage curatorship in the current BOZAR exhibition
There’s no better feeling than finding and listening to a song that fits the moment perfectly. Everyone has a soundtrack to their lives, and so does Isaac Amaro, who goes by the name of yunobi. The Antwerpian trap DJ is playing at Nacht Van De Beeldende Kunst. We’re curious to know how his set will sound, so we asked to have peek into his sonic world. So here goes!
Words by Isaac Amaro
When I’m in need of new inspiration or energy, I look up some old videos of a rapping Kanye West in the studio. That’s all I need.
This song has consists of two parts. It has two different moods, which makes it perfect for on the road. Listen to the beat switch after 3 minutes. It’s a masterpiece.
I feel obligated to pick a track by either Lil Baby or Roddy Ricch since these are the only artists I listen to before going out. Roddy or Baby? Hm, I’ll go for ‘Area Codes’ by Roddy Ricch.
This one’s tough, because I don’t ‘relax’ that much. But when I think about relaxing, I think of Brent Faiyaz.
I choose ‘Time’ by Lil Baby featuring Meek Mill, and the lyrics explain the pick: ‘I’m goin’ all out if it’s ‘bout mine—I’m gettin’ my shine on, I been on my grind—Feel like I’m different, I’m one of a kind…’
My all-time favourite artist cannot be missing from this list. At the moment, I listen to ‘T-track’ the most; last but not least, it’s Tyler The Creator.
