DVTCH NORRIS aka Dvtch (°1993) is a rapper from Antwerp (Belgium). In 2013, Dvtch signed with independent label Beatville and became a regular guest performer in the live shows of singer/rapper Coely. Together, they performed at more than 250 shows throughout Europe. DVTCH NORRIS was nominated for a Redbull Elektropedia Award in the ‘Best MC’ category and is currently working on his first EP.
Boddhi Satva, a DJ and producer born in the Central African Republic, is considered dance music’s founding father of Ancestral Soul. He reworks a selection of commercially and critically acclaimed R&B and Hip-hop songs, adding his distinct seal to create a fresh mash- up treatment. Transition, his sophomore studio album released in 2016, mines deeper into the diaspora of African soul, featuring a range of outstanding international artists including emerging Kenyan pop-soul singer Karun, and acclaimed US singer-songwriters Teedra Moses, Dudley Perkins and Georgia Anne Muldrow.
An MC who is impossible to pigeonhole, the Brussels-born “Belgicain” Badibanga Ndeka AKA Badi learned his trade in the urban scene, where he worked with big names such as Stromae, Fredy Massamba, Youssoufa, James Deano, and Sefyu. He also took part in Pitcho’s Héritage project, which brought together a group of diaspora artists to mark the fiftieth anniversary of Congolese independence. After a first EP ‘Matonge’, he brings out his first album ‘Article 15’ in 2017. That same year he creates with two women artists the slam show Congo Eza.
