The influential artist will play alongside DJ Lycox and foreigner in LA, while Phaedra and Arieshandmodel join the Mexico City bill.
The new series, a collaboration between Resident Advisor and the LA DJ foreigner (who we profiled earlier this week), spotlights the pioneers of the global boom in Afrodiasporic club sounds. DJ Lycox, of the Príncipe label, will headline both parties.
Total Freedom, the massively influential LA DJ who has been associated with seminal crews and parties like Wildness, Fade 2 Mind and Mustache Monday, has been added to Friday's LA event, along with DYANI. The following night at Yu Yu, rising CDMX DJs Phaedra and Arieshandmodel round out a bill that also includes DJ Lycox and foreigner.
