UMA presents DJ Katapila + 06NRG
DJ Katapila (Awesome Tapes From Africa)
and more to be confirmed.
DJ Katapila (Awesome Tapes From Africa) straight outta Accra.
Katapila started out as a funeral DJ in Ghana, and blends an unlikely selection of music into something utterly danceable. Expect hiplife, Ghanaian gospel, '90's house, and Detroit techno, mixed and maimed, while Katapila himself, toasts and drums his way through. Named after the truck that keeps on going, his sets are said to never end. We don't mind, really.
This Ghanaian legend will be supported by local hero 06NRG (https://soundcloud.com/06nrg) and more to be confirmed.
Limited capacity, pre-sale only - more info coming soon.
