EDITORS’ NOTES

A collaborative album designed to showcase the Netherlands’ Top Notch Records, New Wave helped launch the careers of a slew of young rappers, singers, and producers (including Ronnie Flex and Lil Kleine), going on to become a streaming phenomenon and winner of the country’s oldest music award, the Edison. Bright, energetic, and genre-fluid, the music here shows shades of club-pop (“Investeren In De Liefde,” “Drank & Drugs”), R&B (“Hoog/Laag”), trap (“Vallen In De Club,” “Dom Dom Dom”), even grime (“Dikke Gun”)—an internationalist blend that forged a new vision for Dutch pop.
