Wassup, my name is Julien Tribet aka Kicket, I’m a Paris-based content creator. Been into this rap/R&B shit for 30+ years and I have no intention of retiring. Kick’s Groove is the latest avatar of my lifelong love for music discovery and sharing. It comes as a monthly playlist and newsletter.

🎧 Playlist 🎧

The playlist features 50 new songs. My favs at the moment. Hopefully, yours too. I give it a complete refresh every month, so make sure you stay up to date by adding it to your library on Spotify and Apple Music or to your favorites on Deezer, whatever your preferred streaming service is.

It reflects nuthin’ but my own personal taste within the many rap and R&B subgenres and local flavors. Expect mostly Westcoast, Southern and Midwest gangsta rap + cool rap and soulful R&B from all over the place. Cause I’m the type to enjoy an obscure Bay Area slapper as much as a cuffing-season-friendly slow jam. So should you.

You will be familiar with some artists. You won’t with most. I always seek out underdogs, hidden gems and newcomers to take your listening pleasure further than your average playlist.

📧 Newsletter 📧

I send the newsletter every time I update the playlist.

I also send an additional monthly digest with cool and interesting stuff I’ve been reading, watching or listening to lately, in English and in French (my native language): articles, interviews, music videos, documentaries, podcasts, books, etc.

Subscribe and get every new edition delivered straight to your inbox. It’s free and you won’t have to worry about missing anything!

Diggin’ in the streaming crates and navigating the overwhelming amount of new music dropping on the daily is time consuming, to say the least. So if you really value my good ol’ handcrafted music curation, you can make a one-time donation on my Buy Me a Coffee page.

Thank you for your support

🤔 Last but not least 🤔

In case you are wondering, the name “Kick’s Groove” is an obvious nod to one of my all time favorite artists, DJ Quik, and his legendary “Quik’s Groove” instrumental series.
