Dafne Andas is the rapper and producer behind the songs “Växer” and “Smarts” and the lesbian album “Crush” from 2020. This year she is back with the album “BOYE”, a tribute to her role model, author Karin Boye (1900-1941).
Andas took her name after a depression in 2014 to remind herself why she makes music – to breathe. Before that, she had been active under several other names since 2003. She is also part of the Upfront Producer Network, a network for women and non-binary people who produce their own music. She also gives workshops on writing rap, focusing on lyrical structure, flow and delivery.
A relative newcomer to the scene, rapper OG Bella has already been nominated for “Best Hiphop/RnB of the Year” by Gaffa. OG Bella likes to play with lyrical contrasts and the relationship between her and language flourishes through melancholy.
OG Bella’s latest EP “MELLAN TVIVEL & TILLIT” is out now. Often atmospheric and dramatic, her music is experimental and transcends genre. In her writing, a common thread is the portrayal of relationships and grief in a poetic and peculiar way.
Organized by Jon Aagaard Gao, Nathalie Viruly and Camilla Carlberg.
