Inspired by the state of our contemporary societies, the Belgican (Belgian/African) rapper Badi continues his Trouble Maker’s path with his accomplice Boddhi Satva, thanks to this tragi-comic and catchy new track, Mauvaise Ambiance (Bad Atmosphere). Mauvaise Ambiance gets straight to the point with powerful Afro-infused electronic beats and dark strings, over which Badi’s intense lyrics paint a dystopian picture, deftly weaving past and present together in a damning indictment of cultural relations in 2020: “This is Belgica, land of beer and NVA, Severed hands and saveloys, Responsible for Lumumba’s death…” Imbued with Belgian-style surrealism, the video for Mauvaise Ambiance pays tribute to one of his greatest masters, René Magritte. This video was directed in collaboration with the talented video artist 13, features the great twin dancers Les Mybalés and shot at Café Congo, a key alternative venue in Brussels. Mauvaise Ambiance is released on Batakari, a brand new collaborative imprint from Boddhi Satva and BBE Music founder Peter Adarkwah. The album Trouble Fête (Kill-joy / Spoilsport – literally ‘party disruptor’) will be available on Oct 30th 2020.
– The second single taken from Badi’s hotly anticipated forthcoming album Trouble Fête, produced by Boddhi Satva.
– Badi will be in concert on Oct 11th 2020 at the Botanique in Brussels for the Festival Les Nuits / Francofaune.
– Badi will be at Transmusicales de Rennes for a showcase on Thursday Dec 3rd 2020.
