Currently working with
tiigre, international indie dream pop band, is Marta Arpini (IT, voice, guitar), Linus Eppinger (DE, guitars), Mauro Cottone (IT, bass) and Robin van Rhijn (NL, drums). Born in 2018 and based in Amsterdam, tiigre developed an own idiom that conveys deep and sweet, soft and strong messages to the audience, with rock wanderings, ethereal vocals, sophisticated harmonies, catchy melodies and grooves.
tiigre released their first self produced single “Paper Boat” in June 2019, and toured Germany and Italy in the same year. They are now finalists in the Amsterdamse Popprijs 2021 (Melkweg, March 11th, 2022).
In 2021 tiigre recorded and produced their first EP together with 3x grammy nominee producer and sound engineer Attie Bauw. This debut work, called “Hot Dreams”, will be out on April 8th, 2022. “Hot Dreams”‘s realisation was supported by Amarte Fonds and Sena Muziekproductiefonds.
Burght is a pop group that makes eclectic pop music. Alternative, but in an unconventional way. They always start with the intention to finally write that perfect pop song, with that perfect pop song structure and that perfect radio friendly sound. They have yet to succeed.
As it turns out, this four headed collective always takes you somewhere else. Every song is a trip. Some good, some bad. It’s up to you to judge which is which. They lead you from melancholy reveries to fierce chaotic eruptions and from sunlit grooves to dark whipping synths. As adventurous as their music is, it all still sounds strangely coherent. Every song is unmistakably Burght.
Beryl Anne writes electronic indie-pop with a crunchy bite: layered synthesizers, bright vocal harmonies and masterful drums, inspired by the ‘80’s and artists such as Emily King, Christine & the queens and HAIM. Beryl, the crystal well known for its various colours characterizes the versatility of her music.
She already rocked the stages of festivals and venues such as AFAS Live (Aftershow Lewis Capaldi), Uitmarkt and Simplon (supporting Nina June). Her debut EP ”Land of Mine” was released March 2019 with a sold out release show in Roodkapje, Rotterdam. Beryl and her band won the Elevator Pitch Competition in Holland, played on national radio 3FM and toured with the Popronde from September till November. She just released her new single Hands. This is the fourth single of her upcoming EP Paper Walls that will be released in March of 2022.
Allison Philips Trio
‘It is an invigorating listen that probes, as Ornette Coleman did, the line between song and sonic exploration.’. Allison Philips may be fairly new to the scene, but she’s clearly not one to tiptoe around. ‘She has a mind all her own, and she uses it to impressive advantage on this fascinating EP’.
The Allison’s trio released their first record June 2021. Listen to it here!
THYRZA is a project by singer and songwriter Thyrza van Dieijen. She has a voice with an unmistakable sound and writes lyrics that get under your skin.

The full album was released on September 16, 2022. May 19th there will be an album release tour starting in De Doelen, Rotterdam.
After a lot of great and succesfull years with Umeme we decided during lockdown times that it was time for a new direction. Thinking about a less electronic approach and a more disco approach. After adding guitar and saxophone a new band was born. A new EP is recorded and will be released end of the summer. Keep an eye out on our socials. ]
