Boddhi Satva

Boddhi Satva's musical roots run deep as a producer, DJ, label owner, entrepreneur and teacher, reaching out across the globe from his native Africa. Since his debut release in 2005, his musical output has spearheaded the spread of African sounds into the wider global electronic music scene, effortlessly skating across borders and genres. Whether an imagined utopian Wakanda, or the very solid ground of his native Central African Republic, Boddhi’s music transports the listener to a place that feels like home.

As a DJ, Satva has performed in stadiums and iconic clubs including Ministry of Sound and Cielo New York, as well as holding a residency at the W Hotel in Doha, Qatar. Over the years, he has written and reccorded with unnemerable artists, from soul heroes Bilal and Omar, R&B star Teedra Moses and Raheem DeVaughn, African artists as diverse as Grammy Award-winner Omou Sangare and Ghanaian rapper Stonebwoy, to more underground talents such as Belgian/Congolese rapper Badi and France-based DRC-born vocal marvel Fredy Massamba.


Rancido, AKA Randy Tjon-A-Fon, is a DJ/Producer is known for his afro, deep, soulful and uplifting sounds. Following a successful residency at Paradiso's SOULHEAVEN in 2009, he launched his own label 'Deep Journey Recordings' in 2012, bringing his music to audiences worldwide and earning the support of numerous artists including: Black Coffee, Little Louie Vega, Renato Xtrova, Anané, Boddhi Satva, Osunlade, Djeff Afrozilla, DJ Gregory, Abicah Soul, Zepherin Saint, N'DingaGaba, Gregor Salto, Antonello Coghe and Mark Knight.

Meedy (NY)

Meedy is a self-taught DJ/Producer and founder of DESCENDANTS. His musical journey began at age 2, when his Afghan roots connected him to the Tabla which he played for 10 years. At age 13, he started producing music and began his career as an experiential event producer in Miami. Later, Meedy connected deeply with the rhythmic presence in Afro house, resonating with his roots and childhood. He founded DESCENDANTS with the vision that those who are 'Descendants' of the rhythms and elements within Afro house should have a platform and safe space to experience healing and joy through this profound music.

Unruly Phoenix

If you say Amapiano, you say Unruly Phoenix. No genre immediately feels as exciting to her as Amapiano, however she isn't bound by that genre alone, loving to surprise crowds with a perfect blend of sounds including Afro tech, melodic-tribal tech & gqom. This talented DJ/Producer has quickly found her place on the best line-ups in the Netherlands and abroad, with gigs at Tommorowland, Down The Rabbit Hole, DGTL, Woohah, Lowlands, Mystery Land, Afro Nation and Best Kept Secret.

While not on stage, Unruly Phoenix is dedicated to her studio time both independently and collaboratively with other artists. Her main focus is to push boundaries, propagating these sounds around the world. Behind the deck is where she feels most alive while sharing uplifting vibrations with everyone she comes in contact with.
