From Aruba to the Netherlands at the age of 6; a mixture of Dominican & Dutch culture; influences from jazz to grunge, metal to funk & soul. Not just a rapper, singer or producer. His ingenious, dynamic & multidimensional brain breathes new life & freshness into the hiphop we thóúght we knew.
His collab with Perquisite was more than successful. With milestones as winning several both national and international recognized awards, touring 18 different countries worldwide and opening for James Brown & Kanye West, Pete Philly, in 2010 was more than ready to initiate his solo career.
After ‘Open Loops’ and ‘One’ an unforeseen time of illness came on for Pete. Lyme disease left him no other option than to step out of the industry and focus on his road to full recovery. His illness put his life at risk, but he was determined that this was just a break from his career.
Now he’s back in shape & ready for the next chapter: his come-back. He’s fully recovered, his wish is to embed his story, therefore also his music, to inspire others and show the world a different side of him. His music is one of a kind, powerful, fresh & you won’t be able to elude from it. They’ll get stuck in your head on loop
