Mooneye, David Ngyah and Tessa Dixson are the New Batch of 2019 of Studio Brussels. That the listeners of the radio station decided.
Nearly 1,000 emerging Flemish bands signed up about six months ago for The New Generation. There selected Studio Brussel nine finalists. StuBru got the help of a professional jury, consisting of Flip Kowlier, Jan Paternoster of Black Box Revelation, Jeroen De Pessemier of The Subs, Michael Ilegems of Knack Focus and juryvoorzitster Kirsten Lemaire. Finally, if the listeners of Studio Brussels, a week-long vote on their favorites.
Presenter Michèle Cuvelier made during a show on Facebook the three winners. They win more airplay on Studio Brussels, studiotime in DAFT Studios in Malmedy and a cheque for music.
Tessa Dixson has performed in the past with Roméo Elvis, and was last year even with Warhola on stage at the AB in Brussels. Michael, the frontman of Mooneye, was already solo in the opening act of Intergalactic Lovers and expanded Mooneye with three West-Flemish companions, and a citizen of Ghent. David Ngyah from Antwerp, describes his music as a mix of influences from the 70’s, combined with blues, soul and hip-hop.
