NEWĀRK is a Rotterdam based duo, different from other Hip-Hop artists because they perform as
a band and not as an individual Artist. Every member is gifted with their talent. They started as a
group of homies at school playing funk and urban music on all national festivals as a live act. But
for the past year they developed a new sound & formation that fits their vibe perfectly. English
melodic hip hop music with an international raw live sound. 

NEWĀRK is driven by the Rapper (WES) & the Drummer (ZEP). They are best homies since day 1
at high school. During the past years they developed their personal creative mind & soul as a 
creative Artist. And now they come together in the studio as best friends & professionals so the
workflow is greater than great. WES as a songwriter and ZEP as a producer is a heavy
combination but they support each other to work & improve on all sides which inspires them to new

NEWĀRK performed over more than 100 festivals in the Netherlands based on their live energy.
They have developed a new pure sound and are ready to release music. They write, produce &
mix all their songs by themselves on an international level. They have written over 100 songs and
chose the best songs to be released. 1st single ‘Hot Sweat Paradise’ is written in the club when it
was still allowed. The 2nd single ‘Wet Blue’ is about finding pleasure in new things. Their EP will be
followed as a bundle of more stories like this. Also they’ve created the NEWKĀR sessions. That’s a
weekly online series for YT & IGTV where they invite artists into their car where they make music
