“We’re always transforming into something. The universe is also always mutating. The weather, the moon, the seasonal changes, new viruses. Mutation is life, basically. Having all these fragments, I like putting them together, imagining life further ahead, creating this world of Afrofuturism”

Via Gallodoro 68ter
Il TNT è un luogo autogestito, antifascista, antirazzista e antisessista. Chi lo frequenta sostiene le sue attività e le sue lotte. Divertiti ma sempre nel rispetto dello spazio e delle persone che lo frequentano!
A genre-defying Afrofuturist manifesto from Uganda.
Producer, dancer and choreographer Faizal Mostrixx’s singular vision of East African electronic music is a lush sonic tapestry of polyrhythms, modern dancefloor styles, amapiano, Nile basin ceremonial chants and Pan-African field recordings.
A stalwart of the explosive Kampala electronic music scene Mostrixx has collaborated with the Nyege Nyege collective appearing at both the African and European editions of their festival.
Mutations is Faizal’s second full length album, following close on the heels of his acclaimed EP Transitions (May 2022 / Glitterbeat). In their review of Transitions, The WIRE noted: “If today’s currents in East African electronic music have a more mainstream destiny, this might be how it starts.”
“Afrofuturism is a way to describe the meeting of the electronic and the tribal. It’s about bringing the past into the now and then imagining how it could be expressed in the future”
