DEKALOG comprises producer Sonny Dhanowa and Songwriter Dan Roberts.
This partnership’s signature sound runs through the core of their music with a style that heralds creativity, craft and artistic dynamism.
With talent in the form of singer Fien Desmet and rapper Amazumi to deliver a new musical chapter, their first album — ‘Een’.
DEKALOG encompasses a hybrid sound that puts a flavorful spin on the Alt/Pop and Hip Hop/Trip Hop genres – delving into different elements in each song to showcase every angle of the band’s talent and craft.
Their music puts a dark spin on the Pop genre and explores the full spectrum of raw emotion.
Their musical style and lyrical content juxtapose the visceral aura that the sound articulates and connects every listener in ways they can and can’t identify with.
It’s an edge-of-your seat listening experience for all those who want to delve into what lies beneath.
With the members hailing from Antwerp Belgium, and London, England each of them bring their own musicality to the table and bind the chemical elements at the heart of DEKALOG’s.
The band has emerged from the studio and is ready to release an album of songs that showcase the dynamism of the dual-vocalists.
Other guest musicians from around the world enhance the album with additional flavour.
It’s an international, collective effort — a true syndicate – more than a standard project or studio session output.
This is an album of collaboration and innovation, and the group is excited to show the world what they delivered through this record.
The debut album, titled “Een”, is the first installment of a ten-part project released through band member Sonny Dhanowa’s label Blue Ghost Records…
Sonny Dhanowa is a true, nomadic globetrotter, both deejaying and promoting where ever he lays his head – Bristol to London to Barcelona to Antwerp.
He has been a breaker, a scratch deejay, a master of ceremonies, and has produced various albums and EPs before.
Sonny works with a bevy of world-wide musicians and like a movie producer, assembles a cast of characters to appear in an extensive sonic landscape he has constructed around his songs.
And then like a director, he weaves all the performances together into a thrilling story.
Dan Roberts is an elusive, South London based songwriter who has worked on various eclectic projects throughout his extensive, underground music career.
He is an established composer, lyricist and when the need calls, a session guitarist.
Dan is proficient in both the electric and acoustic guitars and thus has played in various musical outfits across the UK.
Dan has written and performed his own solo folk-based material.
He now carves a niche collaborating online with individual projects that place a specific emphasis on creativity.
Fien Desmet is an accomplished and versatile Belgium singer, songwriter and composer.
She composed her own music at a very early age and was soon performing on various stages around the country where she captivated audiences with her unique voice and piano playing.
Desmet studied Jazz at the Royal Conservatory in Antwerp, where she got her master’s degree and tutored by Tutu Puoane, Kristina Fuchs, Barbara Wiernik, Inge Minten and Kurt Van Herck, amongst others.
Fien is part of several musical projects, such as her own band ‘MAY’, the duo ‘Tumla’ (with double bassist Anneleen Boehme), the jazz trio ‘Wolf trio’ with Marjan Van Rompay and Wout Gooris and the vocal ensemble ‘Birds on a Wire’.
Desmet writes music for theatre (the artistic theatre group Tutti Fratelli being her latest project).
Fien likes to challenge herself in finding new musical adventures to explore her voice and her way of approaching music.
AMAZUMI is a Nepalese artist raised in Hong Kong who began actively pursuing music in London, 2010 whilst making a documentary about an artist based in Belgium.
She began honing her skills in local cyphers, open mics and self-organized events, and found herself taking her music further in Gent with a nurturing artistic community that provided her the perfect nest to grow and create a sound of her own.
Previously known as Zulu Moon, she has been regularly performing in venues and festivals all over Belgium since 2012, making radio appearances and scoring a national buzz in 2017 as one of the 7 finalists of De Nieuwe Lichting.
Making her debut as AMAZUMI on the Ancienne Belgique main stage after releasing her new single V for Venom (which is also a self-titled track of her debut EP), her music video circulated daily on XITE channel, premiered on Chase.be, Flus.be and De Standaard.
Infusing the grungy and nu-metal sounds of Nirvana & RATM she grew up with and sharpening her lyrical blades with OG influences of Jean Grae, Zack De La Rocha as well as newer artists like Show me the Body, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Boog Brown & Loyle Carner – her flow is ballsy without the pretentious arrogance and vanilla smooth on lighter days.
You can never tell what’s coming next.
She is currently residing in the UK and working on a series project ‘Amazumi in Exile’.
Amazumi is a true master of the dark, lyrical arts…
