What is that ?

The European Hip Hop Lab is the European Hip Hop Exchange in digital version: a Hip Hop race against time that brings together 14 French and German artists around 7 disciplines: rap, beatbox, graffiti, dance, turntablism, beatmaking + photos /video.


14 artists, 7 French and 7 German, 50% women and 50% men, who pass the relay to create digitally and in 2 weeks 4 complete audiovisual works in collaboration. A Franco-German creative challenge at the crossroads of the disciplines of Hip Hop culture.  

The objective: to create 4 works in 14 days, 1 work per team of 7, in 7 days!

Each participant at 24:00 to devote to the final work.

Our history

The European Hip Hop Exchange was born in 2018 with a first emerging project: the Paris <> Berlin - Hip Hop Exchange.


Gradually, our project was structured to offer exchanges on a larger scale and always centered on the discovery of Hip Hop culture across Europe, via the organization of international exchanges between enthusiasts.

The Covid-19 pandemic has led us to reconsider international trade. In 2020, the European Hip Hop Exchange is going digital with the European Hip Hop Lab.

In the program

In the absence of everyone being able to meet physically in 2020, this year we are innovating!   


2 rounds of creation:  


Drawn by lot, the 2 teams composed of each discipline create in collaboration a complete work: from beatmaking to rap, through turntablism, beatbox, dance, and graffiti and all music videos.


The 2 teams remix after a new draw for the creation of 2 new works!




Processus de création

Creation process

Step 1 :

Music production

  1. In cooperation or by drawing lots, one person brings the first stone (beatmaking or beatbox). She presents her production to the team.

  2. On this basis, the second person in charge of production presents his production to the team.

  3. Based on beatmaking+beatbox, turntablism adds its production

  4. Based on beatmaking+turntablism+beatbox, rap is added to the track.


Step 2: Audiovisual production

  1. On the basis of the musical production over the water and in cooperation with the person in charge of the photo-video for the capture, the person selected for the dance proposes a piece integrated into the final clip

  2. Based on the musical production and in cooperation with the person in charge of the video-photo for the capture, the person selected on the graffiti proposes an integrated production in the final clip

  3. The selected video editor produces the final clip.


Step 3:

Protection and dissemination of works and artists
