De Maale Gars steet, iergendwou tëscht melancholesch-elektronescher Popmusek an energeteschem Trap, meeschtens zimmlech eleng do. Dowéinst invitéiert hien den 2. Abrëll op en Owend an der Kulturfabrik.
Säit 2016 feiert de Maale Gars de Squad am Haff bei sech doheem. No all deene Joren ass et Zäit, dass jidderee komme kann dee well. D’Location ännert, de Spirit bleift. Mat dobäi si vill Gesiichter aus der lokaler Hip-Hop Zeen ewéi den Turnup Tun, de Big T an de ROD. Di. Perfekt Occasioun also, fir eng Rei u Features op eng Bün ze bréngen.
In 2020, Maale Gars started showing Luxembourgish hip-hop what true feelings are. After three years with the indie band Epicure, Thomas Roland has been regularly releasing new tracks since January 2020. Allying melancholy, electronic pop music, and energetic trap; his songs are a genuine reflection of these times’ spirit. This authenticity can be found in the triviality of his lyrics. And it seems like this sincerity and simplicity please the public. In fact, without any need for guns or unauthentic persona, he is now being streamed more than most local rappers (over 200,000 streams in a year) on Spotify.
Regarding the origins of Maale Gars; “The name is the origin of the project” according to Thomas Roland himself. He adds that he was in a sort of bad situation which pushed him to start this Luxembourgish project in hip-hop. He wasn’t anywhere near a tragic path, but neither a very nice one. He was just a “gars” caught up in an everlasting spleen, and desperately wanted to change and embark on a new path. This led him to leave his ex-girlfriend and brought him on a difficult journey to “find himself”. It was in this search of his inner-self that his colleagues started calling him “Maale Gars”; in other words, ‘The guy who always gets along’.
