Kovitch is a singer from Vallés Occidental (Barcelona). He started writing rap lyrics in 2007, when he was only 14 years old, and since then he has founded several formations, in the form of a band of musicians or with a DJ, with which he has published numerous references, including Homes Llúdriga. The most recent is a five-song EP called ‘Flâneur’ (2021), which he has been performing live, getting several ‘sold outs’. The rapper has already accumulated more than 160,000 views on music platforms, and in fact, with ‘Ma Danse’ he was a semifinalist at the ‘MIN 2021’ awards.
The MC del Vallés has collaborated with artists such as Valtonyc, Lágrimas de Sangre, Sombra Alor, DJ Plan B (LCDM) or Erick Hervé, among many others. He was one of the promoters of the first rap compilation in Catalan, ‘Rap de la Terra Vol.1’ (2018), and has performed a good handful of concerts to this day.
After a year of silence, Kovitch returns and begins a new stage with the Delirics label, with which he has already published ‘Les millors coses’, ‘Antes de los 30’ and ‘Foc i fum’, along with Las Bajas Pasiones; previews of his new work that is yet to come: ‘Simplify’.
Now, he presents the most salsa song on the album and the latest preview of it: ‘Escolta’. The lyrics, mainly in Catalan, claim that so many luxuries and whims are not necessary to live a pleasant life. Following the line of the previous single, ‘Foc i fum’, this song takes us back to the dance floor. The instrumental base is perhaps the most innovative of the work: a Caribbean rhythm with a few touches of cumbia. It is signed by Yaron Hurter Weida and Pau Escutia, like the rest of the beats on this new album, and the guitar arrangements are once again by UnderResistanz. The video clip, directed by Pol Fuentes, is set in a “calçotada” with friends and family, saying goodbye to the “calçots” season, playing with the double meaning of salsa, and anticipating the arrival of summer. The master has been in charge of Mad.
Don’t miss Kovitch, one of the promoters and pioneers of rap in Catalan, who returns to show his most vindictive and pure facet!
