With a soulful sound mixed with funk, electronic and drums that bathe in his african roots, Luvanga found his way to the finals and made the difference thanks to his very musical compositions that showed diversity and personality while staying very actual.

Luvanga is a self-taught artist, composer and performer from Switzerland with Congolese descent.
Born in the early 90's, he quickly linked his work as an architect designer with music; he since then draws  and orchestrates his music with rigor and precision.

In his last project "Mood for life", Luvanga proposes 8 tracks driven by eight artists with as many different universe. 
Absolutely a must discover!

This 15 year old producer stole the show from his first rounds onward as he took out the 2018 champion with his out of this world productions based on trap and integrating electronic sounds, samples, distortion, loud mixes and heavy basses. Along the competition he presents battle ready tracks with lots of cuts and switches.

He came 3rd place after losing against Luvanga for a lack of diversity and personality in his sound which will surely grow stronger with time!

Young kiddy is a new threat to be taken seriously.
