MC Mota (BE)
In only a few years, Belgium-based lyrical bazooka MC Mota has become a steady and welcomed stage presence at all the best bass-gatherings throughout the country and abroad. His versatility and gift to hype and vocally spice up every bass- and drumsound experience earned him spots at high profile events such as Tomorrowland, Rock Werchter, Pukkelpop and Dour, but also overseas at Sziget, Lowlands, Outlook, We are FSTVL, Hospitality and Sun and Bass. There he already provided lyrical support for the likes of hundreds of national and international artists including Andy C, Netsky, Sigma, Camo & Krooked and Dub FX. As a Rampage, Liquicity and M&T resident, Mota crafted his lyrical genius and stage act. Therefore he knows perfectly how to tame massive mainstage crowds of up to 40,000 heads. Igniting them with his deep ragga flows, energetic freestyle spitting sessions and soulful singing, while always keeping in mind not to overshadow the DJ, but merely building a bridge between basshead and selecta. In 2015 he got crowned Belgium’s 'Best MC’ at the Red Bull Elektropedia Awards. For 3 years in a row since 2014 Mota has also been nominated for several Drum&BassArena Awards in categories like 'Best MC’ and 'Best track of the year’. This track with James Marvel, named 'Way of the Warrior’, conquered the #1 spot of the Beatport D&B TOP 100 chart in August 2015 and it remained the world’s best selling d&b track for 2 solid weeks. Prepare for massive amounts of charismatic energy and let the most versatile, award-winning voice in Belgian bass music hype you to higher dimensions! He may breathe some actual fire while he’s at it...
