Presenting: Saxify Musicians: E1 TEN

He’s rapping and singing on “Susie Saxophone” and “Elixir”.

Marc Sokpolie wrote the following about him (taken from the info of his Facebook page)

“ E1 TEN “

A.K.A the Rockattack Ten is the unpredictable silent,
ever pensive guy in the corner of the room.
The way he looks at the world, I mean in the most literal
sense of the word, makes you wanna trow him a penny
for his thoughts.
A big mind seemingly at ease, in a wise weathered face,
adorned with a spade, the secret sumbol of “Funk
One of Europe’ s true rap pioneers, the vocal torchbearer
of Jimi Hendrix’ s mystic and Chuck D’ s energie,
shocked his national peers and drew George Clinton’ s
attention half way the 90’s, in fact from Holland via
France, Canada and the U.S. His voice has been heard on
countless recordings, solo projects, rap albums, Go- Go-
styled efforts and Soul ventures and once you’ ve
experienced his character and his voice, you will always
recognize it, floating on top of the beat or dragging
slightly behind it, ridding on the harmonies sideways like
a surfer or straight up like a boxer."

I met him when I was touring with Tribute 2 Bob Marley in 2006. He came to the show to see his friend and colleague perform: Pieter “I Repeat” Both.
Also, it turned out that we had some mutual friends from George Clinton’s P-Funk: Cordell “Boogie” Mosson and Michael “Clip” Payne, both spent quite a while in Haarlem and also collaborated with Gotcha!.

I played with him when the Dutch band Gotcha! had a reunion tour in 2009. They called it the “Gotcha! Allstar’s Re-Onion Tour”;  on a cold winter night in Burgerweeshuis, Deventer we played this song:
