Name, where are you from?
Rimon, Amsterdam.

Describe your style in three words?
Comfort. Colours. Paradox.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Erykah Badu at Afropunk in New York. It was so magical, I almost cried.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
One of them would be Bob Marley and the Wailers.

Which Subcultures have influenced you?
Hip-Hop. Definitely. I listen to it a lot and I recognise myself in the way they live, the way they approach certain things, dress, talk, dance. The whole culture is something that influenced me and that I felt really close to.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
It’s hard. The Amsterdam show (in Paradiso) was sold out and I received a lot of love and people that I knew were there as well. London (in the Courthouse Theatre) was different because I just said: ‘f*ck it, it’s the last show.’ I felt way more comfortable, doing whatever. I would say London.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Nina Simone and Erykah Badu.
