Pete Philly used to be one half of Pete Philly & Perquisite. Their album Mystery Repeats is to date the highest charting hip-hop album in their home country, and was the first ever hip-hop album to claim the highest position in the critics’ poll of ac- claimed German music magazine Visions. The band shared stages with Kanye West and the late James Brown, and per- formed at the main European music festivals. Now, after a small break Pete is back stronger than ever. He is currently working on his new EP.
