Joost

A hero to all millennials. A teenage Joost Klein gained fame on YouTube as Eenhoornjoost. He posted a constant stream of crazy clips. Joost eats toothpaste. Joost gets a smiley tattoo. It was glorious nonsense that has now sadly disappeared from the net, for the most part. Klein discovered that you can also make music with language. The vlogging internet phenomenon turned into the wackiest singing Dutchman since De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig. Joost is all about quirky lyrics and tight beats. ‘Scandinavian Boy’, ‘Ome Robert’ and ‘Albino’ are singalong classics from another planet. His output seems unstoppable at the moment. At the age of twenty-four he’s put out six albums, performed at Lowlands and Pukkelpop, covered ‘Ik Wil Je’ by De Kreuners and written a story for  Youth Book Week. Meet the human bouncing ball.
