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.

On this new track, Badi mixes his caustic lyrics with contemporary Afrobeat rhythms and an avant-garde electro-house sound, “Ancestral Soul”, produced by the talented Boddhi Satva.
Badi personifies the influence of the African diaspora in today’s pop culture by choosing to draw inspiration from the public figure of Virgil Abloh, iconic Ghanaian-American designer and artistic director of a French haute couture house.
Badi and Boddhi Satva chose to shoot the video clip at the Bushman Café, an emblematic establishment in the Ivorian capital, and during La Sunday, an infamous party in Abidjan, under the gaze of the photographer From Abidjan with styling by Young Nouchi.
Virgil Abloh is the first ever release on Batakari, a brand new collaborative imprint from Boddhi Satva and BBE Music founder Peter Adarkwah.
” DJ, producer and founding father of “ancestral soul,” Boddhi Satva has been an unfailing global messenger of Central African music for over a decade. He recently tapped Congolese rapper Badi to feature on his new single, “Kitendi,” an afro-trap banger that has quietly picked up steam Stateside and in the UK. “
