Glints is a Belgian rapper-singer with a British background who fuses rap, RnB, electronic music and soul. Reminiscent of The Streets, Glints alternates between various styles, yet above all he’s a storyteller.

His first singles ‘Dread’ and ’Sirens’, which led up to the release of a self-titled EP (2015), got early support from Noisey. ‘Egotism’, the lead-single of follow-up EP ‘Burgundy’ (2017), was premiered by ’The Line of Best Fit’.

Glints’ musical universe arises from a collaboration with long-time friend and co-producer The White House (Mathias Bervoets). The EPs were produced by VRWRK’s Jergan Callebaut. On-stage, Glints shuns the traditional DJ-MC approach, instead choosing to bring the music to life with a full live-band.
