Swamping between drones and pulses, electrified by blips and blops, Uhuruku selects the right records for a session that goes beyond the depth you usually would expect from a DJ-Set.
Let Uhuruku be your Guide. Grown up in the Swiss Mountains an based in Zurich, he regularly plays sets in which different musical spheres are linked and juxtaposed: from techno, industrial, jungle to footwork, dubstep/grime, bass music, experimental, abstract or ambient. He explores the boundaries of all those genres and fragments them into a puzzle-like entity.
