With Africaine 808 performing live, joined by DJ Katapila and Cervo, The Jazz Cafe is sure to be a sweaty, wonderful mess of rhythms in this heat wave.
Africaine 808 (live)
DJ Katapila (Awesome Tapes From Africa)
Cervo (Banana Hill)
Africaine 808 have explored the depths of musical genres and the boundaries of blending, mixing, and refining rhythm patterns and harmonies from around the globe. We can't wait to host their energetic live show at the Jazz Cafe, driven by their beloved Roland TR-808 analogue drum machine.
DJ Katapila is a Ghanaian DJ/producer brought to recent popularity by Brian Shimkovitz's Awesome Tapes From Africa label, and who whose marathon, relentlessly joyful DJ sets have swiftly become a thing of legend, splicing the neo-traditional dance music styles of his youth in Accra with the uptempo, bass-heavy, Roland 808-rooted sounds of Detroit techno, Chicago acid and house.
Alongside them will be Banana Hill's Cervo. Expect the unexpected from the selector, promoter and label owner who traverses afrocentric, global dance floor sounds from the past, present and future.
