Freetown returns to Five Miles with another exploration of underground sounds from around the world.
Resident and Worldwide FM mainstay Global Roots will be joined by UK funky don Roska presenting his new dance groove, Bakongo, along with African Acid Futurist, Dauwd.
Bakongo is a funky slew of bass heavy grooves from none other than Roska. His new monika has seen a release this September on Livity Sound, a record label that has consistently garnered its reputation as a home for intelligent bass driven electronic music. With releases from Bruce, Batu, Hodge, Bakongo is a worthy addition to the roster and leaves him looking at a bright future with some new flows.
Dauwd (African Acid is the Future) burst onto the electronic dance scene with Bradley Zero and the Rhythm Section collective, and has since gone on to enjoy releases on the highly respected Ghostly International, as well as and an album on the distinguished Ninja Tune. He is now one half of African Acid is the Future. The AAITF crew gained attention with their challenging parties in their hometown of Berlin. Journeying from Afro to Techno they have travelled the world, explored, introduced, and intrigued. Their recent activity has included the release of Ogoya Nengo & The Dodo Women, with Stella Chiweshe as well as Ambiance II with Les Filles de Illighadad on their own record label. Check out their rotating show on Worldwide FM.
Global Roots will be hosting the night and fuelling the energies. Known for his work in founding Boiler Room, Thristian aka Global Roots now heads up the music at Worldwide FM with Gilles Peterson. Freetown brings an element of his weekly Friday resident radio show to the dance floor, with experimental sounds from across the international underground.
Taking it back to the basics while journeying into the future, Global Roots invites you to come to Five Miles with an open mind, ready to experience a selection of challenging and diverse dance floor music with vibes, energies and colours to match.
