African music youtube playlist

This playlist selects some serious dance grooves, randomly picked from the continent where dancing was invited. Some mixtapes are shared on mixcloud.

The music we collect is carefully selected on its dance pedigree and complexity of influences and variety of rhythms. Dancing is the very core of our events. It is not wobbling on endless repeating beats. It’s not waiting till the dj drops a radio hit with a recognizable tune to suddenly go wild. It isn’t shining in front of a photographer’s lens with your whitest teeth either.
