RESPECT | Micky B and Arky Starch

Micky B & Arky Starch

Cry for Love & Unity

Mireille Boudewijns, aka “Micky B,” is a singer/songwriter and recording artist from Antwerp. Her voice has been recognized by various artists which gave her the opportunity to be the support act for Rebellion the Recaller, Charly Black, Macka B, Cocoa Tea and I-Wayne.

She is proud to announce there are some fun collaborations to come.

This Turkish/Belgian songstress combines heartical messages and positive vibrations with a touch of militancy. Her sweet vocals and lyrics are her trademark to the point you can call her a modern-day “Griot.” She tells stories as reminders of the past, shares experiences, gives guidance, and preaches oneness wherever she goes.

Micky B’s discography includes six singles with producer Arky Starch, who can be found on her debut album “Cry for Love & Unity” and a remix of the Dubpistols feat. Rhoda Dakar “Stand together”.

Born and raised in Belgium (Turnhout), Arky Starch is an accomplished bass guitarist who plays guitar and keyboard. He specializes in DUB and REGGAE music. His artistic journey began at a young age, with his older brother Lowie buying him his first bass guitar in 1994. Membership of various bands followed. During these years, he honed his bass player and musician skills.

Along the way, he also collaborated with Heartwash, Ion Youth, and Yosa (Dub Tales), to name a few. These experiences helped him expand his musical knowledge above and beyond the realms of just bass guitar and composition, harmonization, and the rudimentary components of Roots and Dub. In 2004 Starch began to branch out as an artist, focusing on understanding software, MIDI, and technology to create complex, intricate music.

Since June 2020, he has worked with Jesse King, aka Dubmatix, to master all his songs and to assist in building a solid sound for his musical production.
