Noritsu is a young artist who grew up in France in the mid 90’s.
She has been witnessing all the uproar around the hip hop culture :
Graffiti, new rap music icons and the hood rules staged in some historical turnpoints of french hip hop such as Iam, NTM or La Mafia K1fry. This all culture has been for her about freestyle. And she made a motto out of it : « I will freestyle my way out », she answered to her parents when they first asked her what she intended to do with her life. And somehow they could see where she got that from : she has been listening to the synthesizers sound of raï and has been battling against her sister on Cheb Hasni tracks before she couldn’t even walk.
Her musical inspirations are just as wide as her thirst for the world. Electronic music, hiphop, funk, soul, bossa nova, italo disco, north african vibes, or the turkish bluenote that is so popular in turkish-german coffees. Her classical influences goes from Gil Scott Heron, Sade, Nina Simone, Freddie hubbard, Herbie Hancock, Roy Ayers to Oum Khalthoum, Warda and Nass El Ghiiwan.
Never herself disconnected from the contemporary scene, she has been collaborating with many artists as a back singer, or as a technical specialist in cutting and assistant director. Noritsu has also been recording songs with the producer Figub Brazlevic for multiple
releases such like : The Expedition Vol 1 “From Ghettos To Galaxies”, MC Rene “Khazraje”, Hex One “Words Worth A Thousand Pictures”... Lately she has been collaborating with the female producer, singer and compositor J.Lamotta on her last EP “Conscious Tree” released on Jakarta Records.

Fresh tastemaker and selector Gayance will take you on a Caribbean journey through Northern Brazil percussions and Soul music. Gayance is an expert at channeling carnival vibes with her audience ensuring everyone releases their inner animalistic side onto the dance floor. The name Gayance derives from the verb ‘gayé’ which means to ‘rave and lose one’s mind,’ a significant talent that she effortlessly omits. Informed by her love of hip-hop and spirituality, Gayance was born as Aïsha Versus in Montreal, and is now based in Brussels. She has blessed the stage with several headlining acts such as Illa J, Branko, Discwoman, Kaytranada, Princess Nokia and Mykki Blanco.
A lady with many talents, Gayance raised eyebrows with her mix series ‘WITCHES BREW’ which transcends melancholy and showcases vibrancy through her music selection. Juggling between the world of MP3s and Vinyls, this 26-year-old DJ ranks among the best selectors of her generation.
Aside from being a DJ, she’s also a journalist and a festival music
programmer for your favourite band’s bar and your favourite festival.
Gayance has also performed at several outdoor events in Montreal and festivals including Pop Montreal and the 24 Hours of Vinyls. She’s the co-host of Fresh Taste on Brooklyn radio and guest mixes for influential platforms such as Laid Back radio in Belgium, Berlin Community Radio, Rinse FM France, Feel Up Records, The Lot Radio in Brooklyn, and The Goods in Montreal. Gayance released a mix for Red Bull Radio in Fall and is ready to omit her carnivalistic vibes throughout Europe.
