Opgezwolle (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈɔpχəˌzʋɔlə]) was a Dutch rap formation consisting of MCs Sticky Steez and Phreako Rico, and beatmaker DJ Dippy Delic.

Biography[edit]

In 2001 Opgezwolle competed in a contest called "De Oogst van Overijssel". After winning the final in Enschede in May 2001 they got a place in the regional final of the GPNL, and in the summer they recorded their first album Spuugdingen op de Mic.

Opgezwolle made it to the final of the GPNL where they competed with Raymzter. The jury thought that Raymzter made a better impression and he won the contest. DJ Delic got a prize as "Musician of the Evening". On the evening before the GPNL final, they presented Spuugdingen op de Mic in Hedon, Zwolle. The album received overall positive reviews from critics.

In 2002 Opgezwolle began their "Homegrown" Tour. They caught the eye of Dutch label TopNotch and in mid-2002 a record deal was signed for three albums.

On 5 December 2002 they released Opgeduveld, a collaboration between Opgezwolle and the Rotterdam rap group DuvelDuvel (whose members are Duvel, Rein de Vos and Supahdupah). This CD was also well received. In 2005 it was rereleased in both standard and collectors editions.

In 2003, Opgezwolle released Vloeistof/Brandstof, a double-CD, with the second CD being an empty recordable CD. The songs of Brandstof were downloadable from Opgezwolle's website. After performing at many festivals such as Lowlands and the Liberation Day Festival, the initiation of the FC Zwolle Stadion, Planet Rock and the TopNotch Tour, they needed something new and they went back in the recording studio to work with other Dutch MCs like Raymzter, C-mon, Usual Suspects, Duvel, Rein, Pollum, Blabla, Blaxtar, Typhoon and beatmaker Kubus.

On 29 November 2004 the most recent CD of Sticks and Kubus hit the stores, named Microphone Colossus. Sticks named the CD after 'Saxophone Colossus', an album by Sonny Rollins.

The Buitenwesten Tour with Typhoon, Jawat, Kubus and Duvel went all through the Netherlands and was a great success, with many sold out halls.

After a long period of silence from the band, on 23 January 2006 the third Opgezwolle album Eigen Wereld was released. The album features collaborations with other MCs like Pinda, Jawat!, Duvel, Winne en Raymzter. The album contains 21 songs, and almost 70 minutes of music. It reached to number four in the 'Album Top 100', the highest ever chart position of any Dutch rap album. Their tour for this album also received good reviews.
