Jeangu Macrooy was born and raised in the tropical warmth of Paramaribo. Musical interest was sparked at a young age, resulting in an enrolment at the conservatory of Suriname. After two years, Jeangu decided to continue his musical career at the other side of the ocean, in the Netherlands. A collaboration with producer Perquisite kicked off and last year Jeangu was signed to Unexpected Records. Before the release of his debut EP, his music was already played by 3FM, and Agents After All embarked as his booking agent. The ‘Brave Enough’ EP was released on April 7th 2016. Accompanied by an electrifyingly fresh production, his highly personal music is sure to leave its emotional mark on anyone who will hear it.
