High Fashion Technique
Buntu is a foundation for a community, bringing together like-minded friends to encourage creative expression. Buntu is a beautiful, and old, concept. The belief is that we are defined by our compassion and kindness towards each other. It embodies the ideas of connection, community, and mutual caring for all.
Samantha’s aim with Buntu is to explore new creative ground and hopefully awaken an interest that will see artists of all forms coming together to create an experience more than an electronic music event.
Let’s celebrate Music - Love – Life
MoBlack (Mimmo Falcone) is an Italian dj/producer, record label owner, music influencer and the Afro House A&R Manager at Traxsource. He is responsible in large part for the hype the genre Afro House is having worldwide. MoBlack’s biggest supporters include Black Coffee, Ame x Dixon, Solomun, Osunlade, &ME, Rampa, Pete Tong, David Morales, Simon Dunmore and Brian Tappert, just to mention a few. Mimmo Falcone started djing at a very early age and his huge and unique musical background stems from his years of experience in FM local radios as well as living in Africa (Ghana) for ten years. He arrived in Africa in 2003, where he played and shared his faith in sound with local artists. The MoBlack project was conceived in 2012. In Twi, the major language spoken in Ghana, Mo means "Well done/Congratulations". The idea behind it was to give voice to the amazing talent that focused around House Music from Africa. MoBlack Records released its first release in December 2013 and paved the way for an incredible catalogue, with tracks consistently charting, and acknowledgment from the House Music community - MoBlack has achieved his objective: supporting local artists in the international dancefloor industry.
"MoBlack continues to bless us with truly ingenious and eclectic selection of tracks representing the many different flavours afro house music has to offer" SPIRIT OF HOUSE
