No one can spin, mix and juggle his tunes as swiftly as Rakka can (Nicolai Pessemiers) aka The Mash Up Energybomb. Born in Ghent with Russian roots he grew up in Spain and has a degree in Philosophy plus a dancehall addiction. This ultimate deck wizard also loves reggae, soca, kudoro, dubstep, drum’n’bass, hip hop, 90s R&B, electro, rock and everything between 70 and 190 bmp, dixit Rakka. Cherry on the cake are the dub plates of KRS One, Nas, Shaggy, Diana King and other super stars. Rakka was the driving force behind the ‘The Licious’ events and shared the stage with Diplo, David Rodigan and DJ Marky, and trust us, the admiration was mutual.
