Sonny Dhanowa is a world traveler. He deejays and promotes his music where ever he is at from Bristol to London to Barcelona to Antwerp. He has been a breaker, deejay, an mc. He has also produced various albums and EPs in the past.

Dan Roberts is a South London based songwriter. H has worked on various eclectic projects throughout his extensive music career. He is a recognised composer, lyricist as well as a session guitarist.

Now, he sculpts an online niche collaborating. He works on individual projects that place an explicit prominence on creativity.
There has been a “fake News” spreading that Dan is currently living in the Los Angeles underground as a fugitive to the law – evading the charge of public onanism, thus so, Dan remains the ‘ghost member’ of the DEKALOG duo. This is completely false.

She began honing her skills in local cyphers, open mics and self-organised events. She found herself taking her music further in Ghent, Belgium. It was a cherishing artistic community that gave her the perfect place to grow and create a sound of her own.
Previously known as Zulu Moon, she has been regularly performing in venues and festivals all over Belgium since 2012. She made multiple radio appearances. She notched a national buzz in 2017 as one of the 7 finalists of De Nieuwe Lichting. She made her debut as AMAZUMI on the Ancienne Belgique main stage after releasing her new single V for Venom. At the time, her music video circulated daily on XITE channel, premiered on Chase.be, Flus.be and De Standaard.
She Infused the grungy & nu-metal sounds of Nirvana & RATM that she grew up with. She brushed up her lyrical edges with OG influences of Jean Grae, Zack De La Rocha as well as newer artists like Show me the Body, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Boog Brown & Loyle Carner. Her musical flow is brave and without the pompous ego. She is a frontrunner in dark lyrical arts. Her music is however, bland on lighter days. You can never predict what’s coming next. She is currently residing in the UK and working on a series project ‘Amazumi in Exile’.
