Stepbacks & Setbacks by Thijsenterprise [Self Released]

Which started as tribute to one of the greatest instrumental hip-hop albums slowly evolved in a devastating breakup record: 

Stepbacks & Setbacks shows Thijsenterprise (Reinier Thijs) his love for old school hip-hop with soul and jazz samples, dusty breaks and raw chops. Started in 2015 in Barcelona, the A-side is inspired by the city and dedicated to Dilla's Donuts, while the B-side deals with much more personal issues: cheating, heartbreak and solitude. This second part was made in Amsterdam during darker days, in the first half of 2017. 

Stepbacks & Setbacks is Thijsenterprise first album as a solo artist, after releasing Je Hebt De Boem En De Klap with the 2-Two Legged Dogs ( earlier in 2018. 

This album is in many ways more than just a beat tape.
