This is a brain-scrambling double-header: expect hyper-energetic techno, trance and acid from Akua and Caribbean-influenced rhythms from Bambii, two rising East Coast stars.
NUZI ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY
we are super pleased to announce that Bambii and Akua will be joining us for this special event.
Bambii (jerk, toronto)
Bambii iis one of the most exciting DJs in the canadian electronic music scene. whether online or on dancefloors, her political and musical vernacular give credence to dance music's ever-expanding reach, the relationships it helps forge between individuals, cultures and spaces. Bambii is the founder of the 'JERK' party, a DIY party that celebrates caribbean culture and music in toronto. the last few years have taken her across europe with Mykki Blanco and Kelela, and to festivals such as AFROPUNK, Piknic Electronik, TIME, and WayHome. Her work has been featured in the FADER, CRACK, Complex and THUMP.
Akua (discwoman, nyc)
Based in Brooklyn, discwoman's Akua has quickly developed a following for her confrontational, high-octane style of DJing. Akua's DJing is an exercise in controlled chaos, traversing from wonky acid techno, to frenetic and funky hardcore, to hypnotic and sublime trance and beyond. She also curates a monthly party with Doxa, School of Hard Trax, which has developed a core following for its commitment to booking artists who traverse the dimensions of gritty old school rave and forward-thinking club music. In 2018, Akua established herself as a singular force in the NYC techno world, playing to packed dancefloors at notable parties including Unter, Technofeminism, Gardens, and Hot N Spicy.
