 “KOKOKO! excel at turning chaos into euphoria.” - Pitchfork

KOKOKO!

The DIY techno of Congolese collective KOKOKO! is the most infectious sound of the moment. Using instruments constructed themselves out of found objects from the streets of Kinshasa – jerry cans, oil barrels, saucepans – they make ‘tekno Kintueni’: fast techno with pumping Congolese rhythms. ‘Fongola’ is the band’s debut LP. A clattering mix of metal percussion, freaky rhythms, fast beats and cutting lyrics about the harsh but resourceful reality of living in Kinshasa. After a sweaty and incense-perfumed performance at Couleur Café, they’re coming to transform our Balzaal into a sultry dance pit as part of EASTERN DAZE VI.

  

Raymonde 

Effects, a battery of 4-track tape loops and samples from all corners of the globe: welcome to the wonderous world of Raymonde. Hailing from the gastronomic capital of France – that’s Lyon to you fast-food junkies – this electronica genius likes to serve up an eclectic ratatouille of tropical ambient and (cracked) musique concrète. His debut ‘Ce qui est en bas, est comme ce qui est en haut; et ce qui est en haut…’ was released last year on the ever-excellent Brussels-based label Vlek.

"That exclamation point after their name isn’t there for nothing: for the most part ‘Fongola’ thunders on mercilessly. From a bustling metropolis comes this pounding, rattling, bopping cry for help that won’t stop until we drop."
