Slikback is a Kenyan DJ and producer from Nairobi. After joining the Nyege Nyege collective in Kampala in mid-2017, he began to develop a unique dark yet accessible sound, drawing from a sonic palette including footwork, trap, grime and a variety of contemporary underground African club styles. His Debut EP "Lasakaneku" was released in June 2018 by Hakuna Kulala, a Kampala based label exploring new voices from the region.
Sofay is an essential member of a new wave of Glasgow artists. An exceptional selector with a versatile approach - as comfortable creating hypnotic vibes using dubby minimalism and sublime oddities as she is fusing curious electro, techno and house in a deeply considered way. Sofay holds a residency at La Cheetah, and works in A&R for Numbers. She also hosts a regular radio show on NTS, together with Ribeka.
Curious Paul runs Possible Futures and invites his favorite artists and influences to OHM for the bi-monthly Aquarian Shift dance session. He believes that dancing and singing are some of the most potent forms of therapy. His biggest concern isn’t so much that human beings aren’t able to sort out a sustainable environment for themselves in a timely fashion, but more so that we are destroying the animal kingdom (or rather slavedom) completely obliviously.
