We meet Ninort El Khoury (28) and Ibrahim Handulleh (27) in the office complex from where they operate. The building is situated next to Nobelberget — a venue for music and culture in Stockholm. It’s in arenas like this that Nino and Ibrahim’s newly started company TUKIO typically exist. TUKIO is a booking agency and provides management to creatives. They organise events and carry expertise in culture, media and communications.
The nine members of TRE60 first came together as a collective at the beginning of 2017, bonded by music and the potential of what they could be doing together. For the past 18 months they’ve been experimenting with their approach as a unit. They emphasise that even though the foundation for their music lies in hip hop, they are not a hip hop collective; and that even though they make music, they are more than a music collective. TRE60 is a full experience. As 360 implies — their practice extends to all angles of what they present — sonic and visual.
