Shoppers are poised to be treated to noirwaves who released his debut EP ‘King of Anxiety’ in January 2015 much to international acclaim . He later followed it up with his debut album ‘La vie est belle / Life Is Beautiful’ in September the same year.
2016 was rather a quite year for the Petite project wise but he enjoyed live performances around Europe sharing stages with Kendrick Lamar, Vince Staples, El – P, De Marco, Killer Mike among others. Petite also landed a guest feature on Danny Brown’s ‘Rolling Stone’ track off his fourth studio Album ‘Atrocity Exhibition’. The year also saw Petite win South Africa Music Award (SAMA) for best alternative album. He’s currently recording his new project set to drop sometime this year.
