(Netherlands, 1982), aka Junte Ulterwijk, is considered one of the most important Dutch rappers. 15 years ago he made his name with Opgezwolle, together with rapper Rico and producer Delic. The albums Spuugdingen op de mic (Spit things on the mike), Vloeistof (Liquid) and Eigen wereld (Own World) became hip hop classics. After the group broke up in 2007, Sticks continued to renew himself as an artist. He set up the Fakkelteitgroep, formed Great Minds in 2013 with Winne, Jiggy Djé and Wu-Tang Clan producer Dr. Moon, and released a 2015 album with Dazzled Kid. In the fall of 2019, Sticks' latest music can exclusively be heard at the Museum De Fundatie in the exhibit Onrust (Unrest), where five tracks can be listened to in as many rooms.(WN 2020)
