There’s a new rapper in town. There always is, but in this case its someone with matters on her heart. Mark the name: SULKA (let it be said – she doesn’t sulk in any way!).
She worked her way up from the Copenhagen rap underground, collaborating with the collective Centeret alongside cool cats like Loke Deph and Khal Allan, doing golden-age hip-hop on the compilation 2000 and later on her own single, “Fokusér” (‘focus’).
I 2020, she released her critically acclaimed debut album Epoker (‘Epochs’) which was made in collaboration with Tue Track (of Malk de Koijn fame) on production duties.
SULKA possesses a young cheekiness and at the same time the authority of a seasoned MC. She digs the old-school style of hip-hop but is unafraid of spitting bars on top of modern styles like trap and boom-bap. If you listen closely to the single "Frikvarter" (‘recess’) you will hear Danish paraphrases of Nas’ evergreen “I Can”, which says that SULKA is ready to “work hard at it” to make her name known in Danish hip-hop. The talent’s definitely there!
SULKA was supposed to play Roskilde Festival in 2020. Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible. Now, she has plenty of timely tuned tracks ready in her songbook when she plays at Summer Days.
SULKA performs at Summer Days on 27 June alongside Víík and Bremer/McCoy.
