Remember the good ol’ days of October 2016? Well, we sure do! This was the month we decided to team up with Lefto and Democrazy for the third time to present you a new class of Belgian talent. A group of six gifted individuals were invited to perform at Kunstencentrum Vooruit to showcase their promising potential. Almost six months later, we wanted to sound out these six creative newcomers about their beginning careers, their experiences so far and their dreams to come. Today, we're having a chat with DVTCH NORRIS.
What's up, DVTCH?! What has changed since the Made In Belgium event last October?
"I’ve been getting a lot more female attention since that show (laughs). Just kidding! For real though, my confidence on stage has increased after that gig! Shutting down Vooruit on a Lefto party is one of the best things that ever happened to me."
What has been the most memorable moment in your young career so far?
"There are a few! Coely dragging me into a room to meet Kendrick Lamar has to be one of them."
What do you hope to achieve within, let's say, five years?
"It’s not going to be an easy task, but I want to take over Europe with my music."
What is the best word of advice you ever received?
"Hold your mic with your weak hand so you can use your good hand to throw cool gang signs. Haven't done it yet though."
If you could collaborate with any artist out there, who would it be and why?
"Young Fathers. I’ve been fantasizing about this for a while now. “Firework Everywhere” will be the title of our EP."
Any scoops you can give us of what we can expect from you in the near future?
"Me falling off the stage a couple of times, and loads of new songs and collaborations with other artists from Belgium. I can't wait for it all to come out. I love sharing my thoughts with all these beautiful people that can relate to whatever it is I'm talking about."
