Smoetsie is the third release from Thijsenterprise as a producer and is
a full-length, sampled based album, entirely focussed on love and lovemaking.
The album takes you on a romantic journey, with chopped up soul and jazz
records to create greasy hip-hop loops and cuts. It’s a silky record you casual
play while opening up a bottle of wine for your date, start holding hands, look
at each other in the candle light and you just want go smooth before going
Smoetsie can be considered a follow-up to the beat-maker’s Stepbacks
& Setbacks, released in September 2018, where newfound love rises and
heartbreaks get waived. The title and the original concept of the album are inspired
by the stories of one of the producer’s closest friends, known as the
Smoetsieman. Smoetsie is Dutch slang for ‘Smutty’.
