Intercultural with global connections – the music of Nikolas and Riccardo Montero aka Los Monteroz is totally on par with the times. Their mix of atmospheric trap sounds, Latin influences and German-Spanish lyrics prove that these guys from Frankfurt know how to use their Spanish-Nigerian roots to conquer new creative ground in Germany. After their freestyle workshop, you can catch Los Monteroz live, supported by Tobeé Tom.

But before that, stay sharp for a woke lecture by Murat Güngör and Hannes Loh (authors of “Fear Of A Kanak Planet – Hip Hop between World Culture and Nazi Rap”): from youth centre to the middle of society, gangsta rap has become accepted both by high art and the yellow press magazines. Yet many still tend to purely see it aesthetic, thereby ignoring its social context in order to make it more consumable. Nevertheless, there have and always will be ways of tricking and undermining such processes. This cinematic reading focuses on such disruptions of the story, as well as on the relationship between rap and migration.

Fresh Fruits Movement (FFM) ends the day with a dance battle that is open to all. Initiated by Edwin (aka Batalla CL) and Joe (aka Moses Joses) in 2015, FFM is a platform for people, who want to actively promote movement and support a positive exchange of energy between hip hop and house culture.
