'So much happiness and misery in a millimeter'
Balance is a delicate thing. Sometimes it's there just like that, seemingly effortlessly, but just as well it's suddenly shaky for no reason. Or completely gone, without any warning. And what do you do when the balance is lost? Do you give up, or do you pick up? Out of nowhere, sprung from the same ecosystem that blessed us before with names like NTREK and Brihang, there was suddenly olsan.
olsan – no capital letter required – is the brainchild of rapper D. Meeuws and producer DJ SNS, two artists who no longer have to count the kilometers on their counter. To cope with the chaotic times we live in, they have been working on new material every Monday for the past year. Without a clear goal in advance, until urgency took over. The loose project they had started soon turned out to be crucial for both men to keep a grip on everything they saw happening around them. The question was no longer whether this would lead to a record, the question became how soon this would happen.
Less than a year later there is that debut album 'millimeter', again without a capital letter, and it has become a very solid record. The wonderfully timeless productions of DJ SNS form the ideal backdrop for D. Meeuws to take stock of his experiences in his first thirty years of life. The peaks, the valleys and just about everything in between, unfiltered. Who would have thought that pain and beauty would be about as far apart as happiness and misery?
