About Unexpected Records
Amsterdam based label Unexpected Records was established in March 2001 by composer/producer Perquisite, at that time 18 years old. The main purpose of the label was, and still is, to release authentic, mostly groove-based music. Being the director and curator of Unexpected, Perquisite not only releases his own music through the label, but also the work of artists he finds to fit the Unexpected sound. A wide range of genres has been covered so far, ranging from HipHop and Electronic music to Soul, Jazz and Indie. Over the years, Unexpected Records had the pleasure to release, amongst others, the music of Pete Philly & Perquisite, Arts The Beatdoctor, Kris Berry & Perquisite and Jeangu Macrooy, the official Dutch representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. Most recent signings are dream pop artist Josephine Odhil (2021) and alternative R&B artist Swan (2022).
