Shangaan Electro Pioneer To Play KOKO

Promoters Soundcrash have announced a line up of dance music around the globe for their party at KOKO 4th May. 

Leading the charge is Soweto based artist Nozinja, renowned globally as the man responsible for pushing the frenetic Shangaan Electro style. Nozinja has released more than 25 records of Shangaan material in the last decade or so, with the unique style of 180BPM plus Afro-Electro fusion finding favour with everyone from Ricardo Villalobos to Actress.

Nozinja will be joined by Kevin Martin, who performs a full live set with his project The Bug. Last releasing the doom-laden Industrial Dancehall of ‘London Zoo’ back in 2008, Martin is set to revive the alias this year for a new ablum, entitled ‘Angels and Devils’, on Ninja Tune. Completing the bill are Branko (formerly J-Wow) of Lisbon based party starters Buraka Som Sistema and Parisian Afrobeat dabbler Debruit, ensuring a nice spectrum of dance music from around the world is represented on the night.
