Producer, dj, Rapper - Congo - Residency 8th to 14th
Producer, DJ and rapper of Congolese origins Chrisman started his music career at a very young age both as a performer in the hip hop band Young Souljah Empire and as a sound engineer in a recording studio in Goma. Fascinated by the vibrant music scene of Kampala he decided to move to the city in 2019 where he got introduced to the Nyege Nyege crew and was soon offered an artistic residency at their headquarters.
A skilled and creative Dj, his sets are a unique, clever and energetic combination of his own productions, hip hop, trap and influences of afrobeat with traditional kuduro and tarraxinha, mixed with agility and fierce finesse, rich in moods and dynamics.
Chrisman is currently working on his first full-length album, a personal exploration in music incorporating tarraxinha and minimal, slow and layered beats, which is due to release in 2021 on Hakuna Kulala, plus various collaborative ventures with MCs and Nyege Nyege affiliates MC Yallah, Ecko Bazz, Biga Yut, Chrismec and Don Zilla.
He features with a killer track on l’Esprit de Nyege 2020, the compilation of last Nyege Nyege festival and just dropped another banger together with WULFFLUW XCIV in March. He also co produced the track Cheza on Scotch Rolex album to be released on April 30th 2021.
