BEX is a Ghanaian-born, up-and-coming artist from Vienna. Her path to music was rather unconventional, but that's what makes her journey so eclectic. She has always had a love for music and has been writing poetry as a hobby since her youth. A hobby that became a passion through the persuasion of her best friend. A passion that allows her to express herself in her most authentic form. In 2021, she started working on her sound.

From then on, she has paired her confidence and skills with the right amount of explicit content to allow her listeners to take a break from their reality to escape into her fantasy. Her debut as an artist began with two features on W1ZE's EP Down Low, which was nominated for Best Sound at the 2022 Amadeus Austrian Music Awards. BEX once again proved her versatility with her next feature on the Nono Punch-produced track Bounce, effortlessly merging her rhymes and flows with the beat to create a perfect powerhouse banger. Bounce entered Vienna's FM4 charts and made it clear that BEX is here to stay! In November 2022, she officially released her debut single Midnight Playgroung, with which she gained her second entry into the FM4 charts.

Within a very short period of time, the young artist has created her own space to blossom. But this is just the beginning. Her next projects are in the pipeline, but how they will sound or what genre they will belong to remains to be seen. One thing is for sure though, you can always expect the unexpected from BEX, after all her personal favorite verse comes from none other than the rap legend Lil Wayne: Real G's move in silence like lasagna.


For more than 20 years, Vienna based Joja has been on a mission to erode and break down
barriers and frontiers with a focus on connecting elements of the structures beneath. Johanna Nayr-Xeber is an architect, organises cultural events, releases music on the duzzdownsan label and is host and dj for La Boum De Luxe, a weekly radio show on FM4. She prefers to spin music that is heavy on synth sounds accompanied with haunting vocals or rap. Joja is known to play with different genres, ranging from four-to-the-floor, hiphop, grime and noisey tunes.


Being a journalist and host of the weekly music show AUX on Canal+, Tori continuously explores different corners of contemporary pop culture. As a DJ and part of the party collective Lituation, he turns all these influences into sets that seamlessly merge everything from Afrobeats and Hip-Hop to UK Garage and Jersey Club.
