This coming Sunday I´m releasing my first single under the monniker `Blackrockstar´. My previous music was released as Rivelino Rigters or as Rive The Band. With this new release as Blackrockstar a new period has started and I´m saying goodbye what has been. I think the title of my first single `Not The Same´, suits this new part of my life as I´m letting y´all know in this song that I´ve changed, I´m not the same, that I used to be.

“Achter” is the new Dutch spoken song by rapper James with J.Francis of the group formatie HipHo(o)p.
On this soulful production by Soulution Beats we hear James and J.Francis take us on a retrospective journey of their past, reminiscing on past mistakes and people they’ve hurt. But instead of only looking back,they gaze their eyes on what’s in front of em, reaching out for the prize of personal progress. A gem of a track!

“Domenico was born out of passion. A passion to create a different vision of luxury”
I’m very fond of the design aesthetics of the Domeni Co and the idea behind creating this watch. To the creator of these watches, luxury is about evoking emotion. He says ; “If a product or object makes you feel good about yourself, that is a luxury. Luxury shouldn’t be defined by a price point.”
I coudn’t agree more with this vision, I too believe that luxury doesn’t have to cost tons of money, I even believe that luxury isn’t even found perse in goods but if you like a good watch it’s a plus when it doesn’t start with a minimum of 10k . You can pre-order these now in 3 colours, namely black, gold & silver with variations in the straps. More here..
