You must have been living under a rock if you’ve missed the buzz around Lil’ Kleine, as he took The Netherlands by storm over the past three years. Lil’ Kleine, whose name is actually Jorik Scholten, was discovered at the (very!) young age of twelve-years-old by Dutch rapper Lange Frans, who got him a label deal. Years later, in 2015, the young rapper released ‘Drank & Drugs’, the track that became a #1 hit and even got translated into German, English and Swedish!


Ever since his big breakthrough in 2015, the artist from Amsterdam released not one, but two albums with hundreds of millions of streams combined on Spotify. His shows are always sold out, and the icing on the cake? Last year he was rewarded with the MTV EMA award for ‘Best Dutch Act’, after which he went to London to pick up the award for ‘Best Worldwide Act’, as the first Dutchie ever!


Last year at The Flying Dutch, Lil’ Kleine gave a surprise acte de présence during Hardwell’s performance. This year, we thought it was high time to give the man his very own slot. Ready to get to know Lil’ Kleine a bit better? Check out his latest release with Mr. Polska and Hop Hop Hop on over to The Flying Dutch on June 2nd!
