“The new heartfelt single 1999, from 20 year old Belgian singer songwriter Loyk (Björn Loykens), who incidentally is famous for his dancing in his home country. Is out now & if this song is anything to go by? His dancing is soon to be overshadowed by his outstanding musical performances. The track opens with a melancholic solo piano intro & then slips seamlessly into a vocal drifting somewhere between R&B & cloud rap.
This is a wonderful song, Lo-fi in its hazy, dreamlike and relaxed sound. The lyrics pull you into the heart & soul of Loyk & the loving, yet difficult relationship he has with his mother. Beautifully performed & produced I can highly recommend this tear-jerker of a track.”
At age 20, Loyk (Björn Loykens) is already a veteran dancer in Belgium but only recently got naturally ushered into making music. After meeting producer Jazz Maeson, he’s been sojourning in a creative space for the past year. He eventually reconciled to a wavy sound that explores the edges of r&b and cloud rap, the perfect vehicle to spread his message and express his personal feelings. Loyk is now ready to share his music with the world.
