Reef the Lost Cauze @Cafe Bluff, Heerlen Review

Reef the Lost Cauze @Cafe Bluff, Heerlen Review

Last Saturday the 29th of June, Reef the Lost Cauze did his first show of his latest tour in Europe. Since it was in the Netherlands I had to go there, regardless the 2 hour drive South. My friend decided to come with me last moment, even though he didn’t know who Reef was. It also didn’t stop me I already saw Reef in 2011. In fact, this was extra motivation to go check it out.

I remembered how hyped Reef was back then and I hoped he would have the same great energy this time. I was not disappointed. It was a small venue with a little stage, which I personally prefer most of the time. The artists interaction and crowd participation seems to benefit from it, and to me, that’s what can make or break a show. I want to feel involved with the artist. Reef gives you that feeling.

During the show Reef’s energy was on point. A couple of times he stepped off the stage into the crowd while he was rapping. Over all, he managed to maintain the positive, energetic vibe I love so much. At one point Reef called Geckusman (who did the pre-show) on stage and let him take his shine by doing a verse. Although the crowd wasn’t that hyped, people still seemed to have a great time.

There simply was no other way. Insanely dope bangers in your ear like ‘Sound of Philadelphia’ and ‘F*ck rappers’, performed live in front of you by an energetic MC.. sounds like a great night to me!
My friend thought the same thing and bought 2 of Reef’s albums, on the spot. He’s a fan now. We decided to chill and hang out with him for a bit and Reef proved once again he’s a humble, down to earth guy. Talking with everyone that wants to, taking pictures with people, and it’s all good.
Another reason why I’ll be there at every show I can.

‘See you next time!’

Also I’d like to give a BIG shout out to DNA Genetics & Funky Munkey for bringing out the artists to The Netherlands and Stichting SPAT for making this night happen. The Tika sees you!
