With over 25 years of performance experience inside the competitive international Hip Hop industry, BadKat is currently wowing audiences with songs from her upcoming self-produced experimental rock album, She Wolf Half Lion. Writing, arranging and mixing her productions, BadKat has created a musical style that equally incorporates rock, blues, hip hop and electronic sounds.

Her powerful stage and vocal presence carries deep into the minds of the listeners with poignant, esoteric and contemporary lyrics.

She recently launched her music and fitness platform Angel of Mud, bridging electronic music and personal fitness, wowing us with “Kissing Medusa”, “Southern Comfort”, “Kleshas”, “Cuz You Don’t Deserve Me”, a lot of singles and “Dissociation” is the debut album by Dungeon Mob.

In 2008 in Berlin, totally extroverted, ready to have fun, he throws a party for the crowd. Beatbox, harmonica, loopstation, effects and machines of all kinds, Wynton is a freak. A skilled entertainer – plays like a whole band and is a Juwel of Berlin’s alternative music scene.
