Name: Evil Needle
Location: Strasbourg, France via Berlin, Germany
Evil Needle was born in the city of Berlin, Germany. Having parents from France and Germany, he started learning both languages early and even attended a multilingual school as a child. He then moved to France in ’98, where he still resides.
Heavily influenced by 90s hip-hop, he was particularly attracted to the music of the Wu-Tang Clan, which constituted the soundtrack of his childhood. After discovering such underground artists on an Internet radio that was pretty popular at the time, he started listening to them on a daily basis. He was also inspired by artists like Mr Lif, Pharcyde, Bicasso, Hieroglyphics and many others, who created laid-back tracks that were pleasant to his ears. From then on, Evil Needle hardly ever listened to mainstream music and was influenced by a great number of meaningful and honest underground artists.
