This weekend’s playlist comes from Amsterdam based artist CERO ISMAEL. The artist with the soft voice and melodic sounds released his new single “If it Ends” at the beginning of September this year, a track that illuminates the positive side of a heartbreaking situation, struggles to get out of the situation and still doesn’t lose hope. For this track he paired up with the Dutch artist Raven Artson.
It seems as if he is only finding the right words again and allows his listeners to be part of his journey through the most variety of emotions. Topics such as love, fear, anger or even loneliness are central to his works. Issues that preoccupied him especially during the lockdown. During this difficult time a collaboration arose with the artist Olga Oleinic, who also lives in Amsterdam. He saw this collaboration as an opportunity to take on the challenge of translating his works into the visual world.
Cero Ismael will finally start his tour this winter, visiting three huge cities in the EU: Amsterdam (20th of November), London (8th of December) and also Berlin (11th of December).
