Evil Needle was born in 84’ in the city of Strasbourg, France. He grew up fully influenced by 90’s hip hop, the sounds of Wu-Tang in particular were the soundtrack to his childhood. He was also inspired by artists like Mr Lif, Pharcyde, Bicasso, Hieroglyphic, and many more artists that withheld laidback, easy listening tracks. From then on Evil Needle hardly listened mainstream music and was inspired by a landfill of meaningful and honest artist of the underground. In his childhood he was first introduced to beat making by a friend that owned a music software called “Hip Hop eJay”, which wasn’t much, but at the time it was fantasizing and it was the trigger to his future in being the amazing artists he is to date.
Its been 10 years since he was first introduced to beat making and he doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. In October 2011 Soulection released his LP “Mood” and the title speaks for itself when determining his sound. The sound of Evil Needle is one that cannot go unnoticed. To characterize it into one particular genre would be to underestimate his talent. He is an artist that creates genuine music that feels good and touches your soul rather than just your ears. Sometime his tracks are soulful and smooth, other times they are strictly hip hop sounds. Deep grooves, melodious synthesizers, delicate snares, perfect chord progression, and a profound reaction from within listeners is what defines that Needle-sound, but more importantly ..
“Being able to create something unique to you.”
